Challenge #27: Christmas in July Blog Hop + DT Call


Hi, friends!  Welcome to CASE-ing Christmas!  We are excited to have something NEW for you this month!  Instead of a round of weekly challenges, we are doing a "CHRISTMAS IN JULY" blog hop!  There will be prizes from fabulous sponsors, and the challenge will be a bit different from what we usually do, but we think you'll like it!  

THIS CHALLENGE IS ALSO A DESIGN TEAM CALL.  WE WILL BE GOING MONTHLY STARTING IN AUGUST, SO IF YOU THINK THAT MAKING ONE HOLIDAY CARD PER MONTH IS SOMETHING YOU WOULD LIKE TO DO, PLEASE ADD DT TO THE END OF YOUR ENTRY NAME TO BE CONSIDERED!


Before we start, let us introduce
our amazing hop sponsors!

    1. Hi, Megan! If it's something you haven't blogged yet, just add a picture of the card you are CASEing into your blog post. If you cannot do that because it's for a DT, just tell us that, too! HUGS! :) Mynn xx

  18. I just finished the blog hop and I had a lot of fun! I am supposed to be on a blog break but I popped in to join your blog hop and challenge. I don't have much crafty mojo right now but your challenge inspired me because I knew I could CASE one of my own cards - so thank you for this fun and very inspirational challenge! You have an amazing array of sponsors and I fell in love with the images your DT used on their cards - I have quite a wish list going on!
