Hi, and welcome to July's post for 12 Kits of Occasions.
This month's hostess is Kim Heggings, from Cupcakes, Cards and Kim
and she's titled this month's kit:
Christmas in July.
Kim has chosen Ardyth as her guest this month. Ardyth's blog is MASKerade,
and you don't want to miss her creations.

Darling Images and die cuts, wonderful holiday paper, and even some twine and
bling for our cards!

Starting off with the reason for the season!
