Celebrate Freedom Blog Hop

Welcome to the Celebrate Freedom Blog Hop. This blog hop runs from July 1st through July 4th. If you are coming from Tricia at 
you’re on the right track. If you just joined us, you can go back to the beginning HERE and hop along with us. We’ve had so much fun creating this hop, and we have a wonderful line up with some oh-so-talented creators. You will see some lovely projects having to do with celebrating freedom and the 4th of July theme and have a chance to win some blog candy along the way, including some grand prizes which are being sponsored by Lisa from Honeybearz Designs and she is the first blog on the hop. In order to be eligible for the grand prizes you must leave a comment on every blog in the hop and become followers to all the ladies in the hop also.
Be sure to come back every day between July 1st and July 4th because all blogs in this hop will post a new project each day. Lisa from Honeybearz Designs will be picking the grand prize winners from all the comments left throughout the 4 days.
Here is a list of the complete lineup for this hop:
April: You are here :)
Jennifer: Next stop :)

And now, for my project . . .

I created this fun little file folder card using Close to my Heart's Fanfare papers and July stamp of the month. This card opens at the top, hence the name "file folder." This is a wonderful design for a gift card or money holder. Did you know that you can get this full-sized stamp set FREE or deeply discounted with purchase?  Click here for more details! 

As for blog candy, I will be drawing a winner on July 31st from all comments throughout the month.  To enter, simply leave a comment on this post (or any other throughout July).  You can also earn extra entries by (1) becoming a follower of this blog (2) liking Curls & Grins Creations on Facebook (3) placing a link back to this blog on your blog or Facebook page.  Leave one comment for each of these extra entries (including the web address where your link is placed if applicable).  Come back here August 1st to see if you are the lucky winner!  Prize must be claimed by August 5th.

Thanks for visiting!  Now, on to Jennifer at!  Have a blessed day!
