Christmas in July, part 6 of 6

Hi again!  Since this is the last day of July I thought I'd better bring my CIJ sharings to an end.  Can you believe that tomorrow is August 1st?  Oh my word.........where has this year gone?  Won't be long before it's Christmas in December.  I really need to get started on my Christmas cards.  Anywho..................last by not least..................

This is a sweet little tag I made for my swap partner Mary.  I used an image that I snagged from the internet.  I just love this vintage little girl.  She has the sweetest.....most innocent looking face.  I used embellies from my stash, seam binding & DP from Bo Bunny.  I then distressed all the edges with Distress Ink 'frayed burlap'.

This is the back of the tag.  See...........I told you that I always sign my name with a little 'heart' at the end♥. LOL

I also made a little cross stitch picture for our CIJ swap hostess, Cyndi & made the same tag for her.  (ooopsie....I forgot to take a picture of it so I snagged the one she shared on our board.)

Well......this is the end of my CIJ ramblings.  LOL  Thanks for bearing with me & I hope you've enjoyed looking.  We were all so excited about our gifts that we decided to draw names right away for our 2013 CIJ swap partners.  LOL  Now we have a whole year to make things & get some great Christmas deals this December. Yippee Skippee!  'course that also means that we have to keep a secret for a whole year.  That could be a challenge............LOL

I think my feet must be on backwards cause the faster I run to keep up with my bloggie buddies the further I get behind. Sorry for being so slow to respond, but thanks for sticking with me. I think about you often. Hugs!
