GSS Christmas in July Blog Hop- Day 1!

Welcome to our Christmas In July Blog Hop with the Ginger Snap Scraps Design Team!
If you came from Ashley's blog then you are in the right spot!
If you want to start form the beginning, click here.

This weekend, the Design Team will be featuring projects all about Christmas! I cannot believe that Christmas is only 5 months away!!
We hope you enjoy all of the great projects the Design Team has done and find some Christmas inspiration to start those holiday projects a bit early. 

I did a rectangle card. It measures 6.25" x3.25".
I used kraft paper for the base. All papers including the cute pattern background paper is from EP Seasons Greeting paper pad, I then cut the image of the children and the tree from Cricut's A Child's Year cartridge and adhered it with pop dots.
The sentiment is from my very own BugBites stamp set, Mistletoe, that I stamp in evergreen ink. I then added a little button and it's ready to send.
Now I don't want to keep you waiting, there is so much more to see from the DT.
But first there is blog candy!  

GSS is giving away 2 - $10 gift card to Ginger Snap Scraps!
