CFC5 Christmas


I am sneaking in another post today because the deadline for this challenge is tonight!  The CAS-ual Fridays Challenge this week is a sketch:


and since it is SO stinkin’ hot here in PA, I needed a little cool snowman to keep my mind off the temps!  Here’s my weekly Christmas card for you:


I used Waltzingmouse’s Sewing Box Christmas along with Confetti White and Baja Breeze cardstock and some Stella Rose Hattie DP.  Here’s a closer look:

DSCF8008-1 The top panel is punched with a MS snowflake punch and the white piece under it has been covered with some MS white glitter.  I feel much cooler after looking at this little guy!  And here is another picture guaranteed to cool you off:


Thanks for visiting!  Stay cool!

Ahhh Cassidy looks so cool.
Your card is adorable I love that image.
We are at the cabin. It is a 4.5 hour dive North. The temp at home was 95. Here it is 65. Do believe that? So much better.
Now if I don't get bit by any black flies I will be just fine. LOL

Soooooooooo adorable! Seriously, I don't know how you are always able to make cards that compete with THE BABY! But you do! TWO, flawless and adorable creations! Bravo!

Thanks for the cooling off snowman card and the pool shot of your Granddaughter. It's suppose to hit 100 degrees here in Maryland today can't imagine what it's like in the South.

Adorable card! I love all of the "cool" details you added to that fun, little snowman. I like your idea to make some Christmas cards to take your mind off the heat. Sounds like a good plan to me! :)
