Christmas in July Blog Hop


Today The Paper Funday Challenges and the Inspiration Station Challenges Blog are hosting a Christmas in July Blog Hop!  Please hop along with us for some fantastic Christmas inspiration and the chance to win great prizes too!  I love making Christmas cards and always start making them in January just a few days after Christmas!

If you have arrived here from NanaConnie's blog, you're in the right place.  If you get lost, please start at The Paper Funday Challenges Blog and work your way through the hop.


For my card for the hop I've made a card using a super cute digi stamp from Imagine That Digistamp.

Here's what I used:

- Reindeer Carols digi stamp from Imagine That Digistamp available here
- Promarkers
- stitched die, paper and green card from Stampin' Up
- other card and paper from Craft Creations

For this Christmas in July Blog Hop, 6 prizes will be awarded to 6 randomly chosen commenters.  To be eligible for a prize, you must answer the question below:

In what month of the year do I start making Christmas cards?

In addition to the prizes mentioned above, Kris from Imagine That Digistamp has very kindly agreed to sponsor an extra prize here on my blog - the winner will be chosen by from everyone who leaves me a comment and answers my question:

Your next stop on the hop is Anirudh.

And here is the full blog hop order:

Helen (that's me!)

Don't forget if you get lost along the way, go back to the Paper Funday Challenges Blog and work your way through the hop.  You have until 14 July to take part.

Happy hopping and good luck!
