Calendar Girls - August

Paola, is our hostess for the August round of the Calendar Girls! 

We received a challenge for the summer weather....well kind of, if you want to cool off.  Our challenge was to create a card that contained the theme of snow, without holiday items. 

For lack of having snowmobile stamps/images, I went to the next best thing...a snowman!  I know, pretty creative!   LOL   I had this cute image that I received back in a swap, so thought I would use it for this card.

I wanted to use some non traditional 'holiday' colors.  I found some DP scraps with mittens and matched it to some scrap cardstock to create this card.  With the exception of the papers, all items were gifted to me by my great swapping friends.

There is SNOW much to see with the Calendar Girls creations {I couldn't help myself...tee...hee...hee} so please visit their blog links on the right sidebar.

The snowman image is so cute. The way you colored the image with the use of gray is great since real snowmen are never completely white. Cute DP.

Such a cute image! I really like your dp and snowflake - is it ribbon?

Candy cane colored floss is a great accent as well
