Christmas In July Hop

Hello and Happy Saturday! Today is the start of the Catch the Bug Bugaboo blog hop as well as the kickoff of all the fun to be held all week long to celebrate Christmas in July. Thank you for joining me today! If you are here from Joy's Blog, then you are right on track. If you just happened to visit little ol' me, than let me encourage you to go to the Beginning of the hop!

Today I'm using Snowman Ornament - I have a thing for snowmen at Christmas time.

I'm using a fairly simple layout - since my cards go through the mail I try to make them Post Office friendly. Why the two little green dots on the right side of the snowman? Because I had a fight with my glue - and the glue won!!

Sentiment is from my new favorite Stampin' Up set, Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Again, thanks for the visit. Leave me a comment for a chance to win this Snowman image.

Next on the hop is the talented Julie!

Is that a little sewing I see on your card? I have missed your sewing... I always thought it added just that little extra touch... I can't believe you let that glue get the better of you. lol.. I would have thought those little green dots belonged there.. cute as can be.. hope Bean is having a great summer
