CWC-Christmas in July

All week we are celebrating Christmas at CWC.  Everyday this week there will be a Christmas related post. Make sure to check it out to get your Christmas Crafty Mojo on early.  
Today at Cooking with Cricut the challenge is Christmas in July- use a scrap of some kind.  I decided to not only use some scrap Christmas paper from last year but a leftover paint chip I had.  (We are doing a bathroom remodel and no I did not pick any of these greens).   I cut the tree from Winter Frolic page 48 at 4. 5 inches.  I added a stamped sentiment and some ribbon from Michaels last year.  
So I got two cards out of one cut on a paint swatch.  Cute don't you think?  
Then I took the cut out tree and made another card with scraps of ribbon and paper from last year.  
I hope you will enjoy us for the challenge this week.  You have one week to link up your projects at CWC. Don't forget to come back each day this week to see what Melin and DT has in store for you.  
Happy craftin!
