Christmas in July!

Well hello there!  Do you hear those sleigh bells ring-a-ling?! Ting-ting-ting-a-ling toooo?!  We had such a merry time last night at our monthly club meeting!  Our theme was....Christmas in July!  One of my sweet, fun club girls even wore her Christmas shirt and earrings!! Good stuff! :)  Would you like to see some pictures from our evening?!



I made some fun food for the festive event!  These are jello treats!  They are cherry, lime and raspberry!  We topped them with mounds of cool whip, but I was too busy eating mine and forgot to click a pic! LOL


I thought they looked mighty festive against their bright red backdrop!

Our veggie tree with hummus for dipping!  We also had rice crispie treats and pretzels and delicious cinnamon sugar cookies that my wonderful DIL baked!!  (She is a fantastic baker!!)


Here is the table all dressed and ready to go!

I made everyone a fun little purse gift to say thank you for coming! 
 (Idea courtesy of the very talented Becky Roberts.)

Here are the projects we made at the party:
This card uses packing tape for that fun sparkle!  We put packing tape sticky side up and covered it with Dazzling Diamonds!  Absolutely love this technique!  :)
(Idea found on Pinterest!)

The ornament is being suspended with our beautiful silver trim ribbon.


Second card we made uses Post-It notes to mask off a portion of the card and then we sponged, sponged, sponged!  Sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes (and the award goes to TTW for the most versatile stamp set EVER!!).  

Flourish is from Everything Eleanor and the shimmer-y stars were punched from the Gold Glimmer paper.


Then we made a tag!  We used the Kinda Eclectic stamp set and the Petite Petals punch to make the wreath.

We added the tag topper to the top using the Scallop Tag Topper punch! 

Finally we made some ornaments.
                                              

We used the Mixed Bunch stamp set and the coordinating punch.

Silver glimmer paper for the dangle-y down bits and silver trim ribbon for the hanger.

I also picked up a styrofoam tree and made this cute little guy as a table centerpiece.  

I love Christmas in July!!  It was a blast spending it with such a great group of ladies too!

I do have another cute thing to share with you today!


Our beautiful grand pumpkin is 9 months old already!  She finally grew a couple of teeth!  She just lights up my whole day! :)

Ok, well I am off to do some organizing and enjoy the rest of the weekend!  Hope that you enjoy yours too! I will be back soonest with more to share!
