Hello Friends!

Thanks for stopping by and I am in another hop and this is fun...CHRISTMAS! ...I want to thank Lynda Jeffs for having me and this will be a fun couple of days and I have something for each day so make sure you come back...and below are the rules and the like; so go check it out! :)

Christmas in July Blog Hop 7/22 – 7/25

Welcome to my first ever Memories in Tyme Christmas in July blog hop!!! After going to my first blog hop recently, I knew I needed to host my own hop this month for people to start to look at Christmas! The economy is hard right now, what better way to save money by making wonderful things for your friends and family instead of spending a ton of money you don’t have! Plus if you spend a bit of time and money each month, things will not be so hard at the end! Everyone has been working really hard on things this month, and we all hope you enjoy all the fun ideas we are sharing with you!!

If you are starting at my blog – make sure you start at the beginning at Lynda’s blog which is But if you came from Kimmarie you are in the right place. :)

I decided to make a gift tag card you can put on the tree...who said Christmas has to be red and green...not me for love cold man I made mine "snow" used the printed papers I got from a pack that I brought from Wal-mart a couple of years ago...use a die tag from Sizzix and cut two of them one you keep whole and the other you cut at just below half...then decorate with paper, snowflakes with self adhesive gems, and laquered them and the pop up underneath the flakes to give dimensions and then the stamps are from Inkadinkado and the other stamps from my local store and I used different shades of blue and I inked the sides of the tags and then I taped the half on the back where I wanted to be able to hold a gift card in the back and put strings and ribbon on for prettyness and well you got to be able to have it hold on a hook or there is you all enjoy my take on a simple gift you can give teenage son loves Taco Bell, and the like that is what I give him so he can go with friends and when he is tight on money this only cost 5 to 10 dollars...pretty simple and he loves it! :) but you can do this for movies and other things like cell minutes too! :)

Well I hope this gives you an idea what you can do and you could even do a whole tree for the whole family and have a contest to find there own so many
