July Challenge at Christmas Crafting

Welcome to the July Challenge at Christmas Crafting  Arline our challenge co-ordinator asked me to choose the challenge this month and I would like to see cards with at least 2 folds.

This month we also celebrate our 1st birthday and to celebrate we are having a blog hop with prizes  up for grabs, please visit the design team and say hello.

Here is a message from Arline who started the blog a year ago

This month we are celebrating our first birthday over at Christmas Crafting-where has the time gone! Thanks to all of you who have taken part in the last 12 months and we hope we can count on you for your continued support. As part of our celebrations we have decided to have a blog hop around our very talented Design Team! We have four prizes up for grabs so definitely worth taking part! If you have arrived here from Christmas Crafting then you are hopping in the right direction. If not then please return to the Christmas Crafting blog to start again.

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning one of these fabulous prizes is to visit each blog in order, leaving a comment as you go, and then returning to the Christmas Crafting Challenge blog and leaving a final comment letting us know what you love about Christmas. On 1st August we will randomly draw four comments to win the prizes.

Good luck and thanks for joining us at Christmas Crafting this month.
