Christmas in July Blog Hop

Welcome to the Bugaboo and Totally Stampalicious Christmas in July Blog Hop. If are just joining us head back on over to the Catch the Bug Challenge Blog to start hopping.
If you just got here from Amy's Blog you are in the right spot.

I have already gotten a head start on my Christmas cards however I thought a fun one would be great. So I pulled out Pimp my Ride Stella today. The cool paper was in my stash so I went with the colors for the card today. The new Dienamics snowflakes I got last week were perfect timing. A bit of sparkle added to those was the finishing touch.


Now hop on over to Beckys' Blog for you next hop. Catch the Bug Challenge blog has a week full of fun for you so be sure to check it out and play along for some great prizes. Be sure to check back tomorrow for Clear Dollar Stamps Montly Blog Hop and a sneak peek at the new templates coming out!
