Christmas In July Blog Hop

Morning everyone!! Are you ready for a blog hop?  The DT Sisters at Exploring Cricut  are having a 'Christmas In July' Blog Hop!!
How about joining us for our hop. There will be some blog candy along the way. You just have to visit all of the stops and see who is offering some. And check out the awesome creations my DT Sister's have made. Awesomeness for sure!!!
I'm the first stop for the hop. So welcome, welcome, welcome!! You are going to so love all of the creations that you are going to see along the way!!! Now for my card:
I decided to pull out my much neglected 'Jolly Holidays' cartridge to make my card. I went with the cut that is at the #43 spot on the overlay. So easy!! Just a few cuts and you have this super cute house with Santa's legs sticking out of the top of the chimney!!! Guess he had to many cookies at the other houses he'd already visited!!! The snowman is a wooden stamp that I stamped, colored the hat, nose and scarf with my Copics and then cut out. The bg designer paper is from Echo Park. I finished by spraying some Sparkle Shimmer Spritz on my card. The sentiment on the inside is from a wooden stamp that I have in my stash. Now we're not just having a blog hop, we are also having our usual challenge. Just use a Cricut cut and create a new Christmas project. You have until 10pm, EST, July 20th to link you creation. All of the rules for our challenges can be found on the sidebar at Exploring Cricut.
Now your next stop is Donna. I know you are going to just love her project.
If you get lost along the way, just come back by and check the list at the end of my post and pick up the trail there.
Oh, almost forgot. I've got some blog candy to give away! Check below for a picture. The only thing that I ask is you to have a U.S. address. Sorry, postage is just way to high to send outside of the States. And please leave only one comment and a way for me to get in touch with you. Check back on Monday, July 22nd. and see who the winner is.
Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)
I am also linking my card with Craft Spots Christmas In July Challenge.
