Christmas in July Blog Hop 7/22-7/25

Welcome to the Christmas in July Blog Hop. I'm so sorry for this post being late but its not my fault. We had some very strong thunder storms last night and ever since it keeps knocking out my internet. I have not been able to post all morning/early afternoon. Again, sorry.

I want to thank Lynda for having me in this blog hop. This will be a FUN hop Christmas in July hop.

Christmas in July Blog Hop 7/22 – 7/25

Welcome to my first ever Memories in Tyme Christmas in July blog hop!!! After going to my first blog hop recently, I knew I needed to host my own hop this month for people to start to look at Christmas! The economy is hard right now, what better way to save money by making wonderful things for your friends and family instead of spending a ton of money you don’t have! Plus if you spend a bit of time and money each month, things will not be so hard at the end! Everyone has been working really hard on things this month, and we all hope you enjoy all the fun ideas we are sharing with you!!

If you are starting at my blog – make sure you start at the beginning at Lynda’s blog which is

Ok on to my first project of the hop. I made this christmas card for my Mother in Law since she loves angels. I wasn't really sure what to make but I like how it came out. I used my Gypsy to weld together Merry Christmas using Storybook font. I have to say I love that cartridge. The angel is from Christmas Noel which was a free download when I purchased my Gypsy. I bought the gold paper from Michaels and the snow flake paper there too on clearence. I really wish I had more of that but it was a scrap. The cream colored paper for the angel and the shadow for the letters are Bazzil cream shimmer paper.  I really liked how this came out especially with the added HotFix Bling.
