Hello!  For the month of July, we’re doing something a little different at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown!  Welcome to the 52 {Christmas} Card Christmas in July Blog Hop!  If you’ve arrived here from Louise’s blog, you are on the right track!  If you haven’t and want to participate for a chance to win honors and/or prizes, please go back to the original hop post, follow along with us, and be sure to leave a comment on each blog in the hop!  Our four challenge prompts are shown on the original hop post, and you can choose any of them (or combine them!) for your own creation.  Be sure to link your work at the blog hop post by noon GMT/7:00 a.m. Eastern time July 31, 2014.  Several of the design team members will be giving away blog candy to our July challenge participants who have left comments!  :)

Here’s what I made using our prompts for the month.  I’ve combined the sketch challenge with the stash challenge.  I just happened to have tree and snowflake stickers that fit perfectly into the sketch layout!  Serendipity, I suppose.  I added a hand-stitched border around the edges of the focal panel.  Like nearly all of my 52{C}CT cards, this one is going to be donated to Operation Write Home, for one of our military men or women stationed overseas to use to write home to their loved ones.

Thank you for coming by and leaving a comment!  (Those of you outside of the United States – I apologize for my blog’s tendency to flag “foreign” comments as spam.  Please rest assured that your comment will be held in my spam folder until I approve it manually!)  Remember to hop along with us starting at the original 52CCT post for multiple chances to win honors and prizes!  Your next stop will be the fabulous Ruth – she always has some awesome stuff you won’t want to miss!  Merry hopping!
