'Tis the Season

Christmas in July seems to be in full swing all over blogland!  I get so excited this time of year anticipating what all of the stamp companies will be releasing for this holiday season, eek!  What trend do you think will be big this year??

I used Spring Tags to make my Christmas Wreathes, yup you read that right!  Spring :)  I heat embossed my sentiment and added a small bow from the Simply Jane set.  I love that the only holiday set I used on this card was for the sentiment!

I was inspired by the Clean & Simple Sketch (FTL199).
