Christmas in July - Craftin Desert Divas

Happy Monday everyone!  We are mid-way through the current Linky Party at Craftin Desert Diva's, and it is Team B's turn to inspire you!  Tara challenged us to create a Christmas in July project.  Here is what I have created for today:

I love my simple card.  The silhouettes are from the Silhouette Online Store.  The paper is mostly from Michaels except the gold which is Stampin Up.  You can find Christmas sentiments in lots of places, and I found this one on Be Inspired.  For me, it reflects the true meaning of Christmas.

I hope you all come play with us!  There is still 1 week left in our party, so be sure to link up by August 3rd.  There are great prizes for a few lucky participants, so get your crafty on!  I can't wait to see what you come up with.
