OSAT July Blog Hop - Christmas in July (anything holiday)

Hello everyone!  I'm so glad you're hopping along with us today on the OSAT July Blog Hop!  We're having fun with the Christmas in July theme here today.

I found myself humming a christmas tune while making this card, even though it was in the high 90's and sunny outside!  I'll admit, I had yet to use the Festival of Trees set that I'd ordered last year, so this was the perfect opportunity.

I just love thees bunnies hopping around on the crisp snow hills under the winter moon and a decorated tree in the forefront just made me happy.  The window piece I took out of the card front, I stamped again with the tree and made a matching tag.  I love it when there's no waste.  This set will make a nice accompaniment to a special gift this holiday season.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you'll leave a comment as I love to hear from you!  Please continue on  to Megan's blog by clicking the NEXT button below!  Have a great day :)

I found this really neat idea on Pinterest on how to make the trees smaller, so it was perfect to create my outdoor scene!
