GSS Christmas in July Blog Hop- Day 2!

Welcome back to day 2 of 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.

Wow, there were so many great projects yesterday, I can't wait to see what everyone has done for day 2. 

If you missed yesterday, no worries, let me bring you up to speed.

This weekend, the Design Team is featuring projects all about Christmas! Yes, I know, already! But it is only 5 months away!

I found this a great little nudge to get started on holiday cards. I figure one here and there will build my stash so I am ready to send cards in December.

So my card today is a 6x6 card with a kraft paper base again. I really do love kraft card stock.

I used many scraps of several papers for this card, but the red and red star pattern papers were from the Authentique Glory paper Pad. I love this stack and have used it so much that I had to order another one already. You can get one too right now over at the GSS online store.
I used the Elegant edges cart for the mats, the boot was cut at 3.25" from the Just Because Cards cart and the holly leaves from the CM Tis the Season cartridge. I added a brad, some twine, sticker pearls and a bow from my stash. The sentiment is from my very own BugBites stamp set, Mistletoe .
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!

Awesome card. I love that you used a cowboy boot. I like all the embellishes you added. The seniment works great.
