Christmas in July Blog Hop

Do you like blog hops. I sure do. They are always fun. We are having a 'Christmas in July Blog Hop' and challenge over at Exploring Cricut and More and we sure hope you plan on hopping along with us and joining our challenge. Now, if you are hopping and you came from Annette's blog, then you are in the right place, but if you just stopped by to see what I've been up to, why thank you. How about joining us for our blog hop. Head to Exploring Cricut and More and start at the very beginning. Don't miss any stops, there just might be some blog candy along the way. I know there will be at Exploring Cricut and More and I plan on having something to give away also. Just make sure you follow the rules that each have set up for a chance at the blog candy.
If you are a regular here, you know I have just fallen in love with the box cards. I think they are just fabulous. When I heard that SVG Cuts was coming out with some Christmas Box Cards, I just couldn't wait to get my hands on these files. How excited I was when I downloaded them and laid them out in my Silhouette program. If I had of had enough time, I would have cut them all, but alas, this thing called 'work' tends to get in my way. So for our blog hop I chose the Christmas Tree Box to showcase. I used Christmas stacks that I've have for years and I just love how it turned out. I used my Wink of Stella pens on the stars and tops of the ornaments. Gold for the stars and yellow for the tops of the ornaments. I added some Doodlebug Designs Sprinkles to the train. These are from the Birthday Boy set. I got these from The Royal Castle Shoppe. On the back panel I used the Snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder. I can't remember the name of the embossing folder I used on the tree.
Well that is it. From here you will be heading over to Faith's blog. Don't miss anyone, because if you do, you will be missing some awesomeness for sure!!!
If you get lost, come back by and look below for the lineup.
Also, check out the blog candy I'm giving below the box card photos. You don't have to be a follower, but I do ask that you only comment once for the candy and have a U.S. address. I will post the winner late Sunday.
Hope ya'll like my Christmas Box Card!!!! :)

How about a $15 gift card from Hobby Lobby. Remember, only one comment and have a U.S. address. :)
