Christmas in July

it seems like there are many Christmas in July happenings. I have missed out because after the heinous winter we had, I was ready to feel the heatwave and enjoy the humidity. Okay maybe not the humidity part because my hair is just a frizz nightmare when I go outside. I think I could modge podge it and it would still find a way to go all crazy on me. Thankfully I have the Summers off. So onto this Christmas in July. Not really feeling it. I tried my hardest today to create a festive card with a jingle bell and all. Hmmm. Guess once Fall kicks in I will be ready to settle down with my seasonal papers and a cup of hot tea. For now this is it.

I used two different Cutting Cafe files for this. The "remember" is from Jot it Down and the tiny tree is from a tag from Journaling for the Holidays. I cut it out, filled it in and then glazed to make shiny. I used MME, So Sophie papers which I need to use more often. I am not sure where the green / red stripe ribbon is from? The book plate, flower rhinestone, and silver bell are from Jo-Ann's. More of my stash I am tyring to purge desperately. I think I had four packages of book plates and now I am down to 1. I am getting there. Rub-on's are Foofala.
