Christmas in July

Hello, Sweet ‘n Sassy  friends!  Welcome to our July 2014 Release blog hop!  This month we are creating some Christmas in July cards.  Why not get a jump start on making your holiday cards for this year?  Today Sweet ‘n Sassy is releasing one image set and two sentiment sets that not only look great on the outside of the card, but are perfect for finishing up the inside too.
