The line-up for July includes:
Stop by and check out these holidays as I am sure you are going to want to remember these holidays and include them in your card making projects!!!!! 
We will have blog candy to the lucky recipient that remarks on each site along the way!
I scream you scream, we ALL scream for Ice Cream!  How can National Ice Cream Month not make you happy?  And in National Ice Cream month, not 1 or 2 scoops will do!  Today we have 5!
My recipe:
5 ½ x 7 ½ half fold card in black
printed mat paper 5 x 7 (my own design)
Ice cream with cone and layerable scoops (.svg file)
Cuttlebug “Dots” embossing folder
Cuttlebug “Swirls” embossing folder
Papers from my stash.
I embossed and inked the “scoops and pieced together with the cone.  I attached that with 3-d mounting squares on a curved rectangle, layered on my printed mat, then adhered to the card.  Very simply, but festive at the same time.  I think it’s the perfect balance of technique.  With the various colors, embossing, and print, any more would be busy, IMO.  I hope you enjoyed my card.  Now on to Laura at  Thanks for stopping by and mark your calendar again next month to see what Holidays to Celebrate on August 11th for the next Calendar Girls Blog Hop!

Until next time
Craft Happy-
Lisa Woodward
