CASE-ing Christmas "Christmas in July" Blog Hop!


Hi there!

Paper Sweeties is sponsoring the CASE-ing Christmas "Christmas in July" Blog Hop!  Dust off those Christmas stamps/dies and join in on the fun!  Lots of prizes up for grabs!

The hop will run from July 3rd-15th and start on the 3rd at 6am CST.

If you would like to play along, just find one of your favorite NON-Christmas      cards that you have made and CASE it into a Christmas card.  You can be inspired by some element on the card, which can be colors, layout, image, etc.

After you CASE yourself, blog about your non-holiday card and how you CASEd it into a holiday card, then link it up HERE.

For my project for the hop, I cased the following card...

Ok, I mean cards...hehehe!  I used the same layout on another occasion with a 4th of July card. 
So, I thought why not for Christmas.  And, here is my card...

Details of the St. Pat's card can be viewed on blog dated 3-17-15.  The 4th of July card details can be viewed on blog dated 7-1-14.  And, supply details of Christmas card can be seen below.  Thanks so much for dropping by!  Hope to see your card over at the challenge...have fun!  Take care!
