Christmas in July

 Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great holiday weekend! Celebrating the 4th is always a fun time, bbq's and pool parties and lots of sun! We went and saw a parade and had a nice bbq with the inlaws then watched the fireworks show on tv to end the night..good times! :)

So now that we're in July, we are offically half way through the year, so that means Christmas is just about 6  months away, so it's time to slowly start stocking up on some handmade xmas cards for my stash! I had a few extra minutes over the weekend and came up with this...simple, but still cute! :)

I've had these adorable Paper Smooches stamps that were just dying to be inked up, so I did some paper piecing and I got a little hohoho cat and a polka dot puppy..soo cute! 
I used the Chubby Chums set by PS.
And the sentiment is brand new by EAD/Paper Smooches Christmas Sentiments.

I'm sure you'll start seeing me making a few Christmas cards now and then..don't worry I wont get carried away..lol! 

Supplies:
Paper Smooches-stamps
EAD-sentiment
PP-DCWV
Cricut cart-3 Birds on Parade (Santa Hats)
twine, toothpick, cardstock

Have a great day!


P.S. Here's a few pics from the parade.  :)
