PP524 CAS Snowy Scene

Happy Sunday, all! First, thank you to all those who wished us a happy anniversary!  John did like his card!   It's time for a new Paper Players challenge with the wonderful Claire as our hostess!  And it's a Clean and Simple challenge....those are just about my favorite!!  I love seeing what I can create with simply paper, stamps and ink!  Here's her prompt:

Love it!  And even though I think "Christmas" when I see the word snow, it certainly does not have to be a Christmas card, but it does have to be clean and simple...the guidelines are on our blog, so check it out if you need a refresher!  I knew just what stamp I wanted to use, so here we go:


This lovely scene is from Hero Arts, and I stamped it on Shimmery White cardstock, so it doesn't even need any glitter or glitz! 


I diecut it with a Stitched Rectangle die, then stamped a sentiment from the retired Good Greetings down in the corner:

I mounted it with some dimensionals on a Whisper White card front, stamped a matching "merry christmas" sentiment on the inside, and it was done!  CAS and oh so pretty!  And since it fits the criteria at the January CAS Christmas Card Challenge of silhouettes, I am entering it there as well!


And I might as well toss it in the Krafty Chicks ring as well...they're looking for Christmas!

I hope you'll play along with our CAS challenge this week at the Players!  Can't wait to see what you create! Be sure to stop by the blog and see what the designers created as well!

Not only was our anniversary yesterday, it was also this special guy's birthday!  We celebrated with lasagne and an ice cream cake--yum!



And believe it or not, 38 years ago on the very same day, my best friend was having a baby shower for me....and Dana was born exactly a month later!!  And look at her now!


Thanks for popping in today! Enjoy your day and be blessed!


"As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you.  Now remain in my love.  If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father's commands and remain in his love.  I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete."  John 15:9-11

LeAnne, I adore this gorgeous snowy scene! Stamping on the shimmery paper is perfect! I need to give that a try. The shine is so pretty! I love the sentiment stamp set and still use it often. An oldie, but goodie. Looks like you had a happy day with your family! Thanks for making my challenge shine! Have a super week, My Friend!
