*Let it Snow!*


Let it snow in Miami?  
A girl can dream! That would be SNOW wonderful! :)

Hello friends! Long time no blog :{
Life (with 4 active school kids) has taken over full force,
but in a good way! And I've kicked my exercise up a notch
 and have added on 2 evenings so my oldest daughter can run with me
 on her college nights off :)  

Lucky me, I got my card done in time for the Calendar Girls monthly
card posting ~ this month, it was hostessed by Sweet P!
She gave us this theme to work with:

For the usually HOT and HUMID month of AUGUST, I would rather do something to get cooled off ...but what?
mmmm..I got it! We could make some SNOWballs....or even SNOWangels in the middle of summer, but how? ♥

Here's what I suggest :
Your challenge for this month is to create something with anything that begins with the word SNOW.
However, here's the catch: Your card should NOT reflect Christmas at all...
...but rather just images AND sentiment ( s ) that start with *SNOW*. 

Once you blog your card, please also make sure to add what was your word choice 
that your card reflects, and also WHY you selected THAT particular word...
Thank You and happy stamping .....Have FUN 'chilling out' on a hot summer day....♥

Paola 
aka Miss August ♥ 


And here's the front of my card:



 And the inside:




 I used the ever adorable Snowball Riley who is having just way too much fun without me!  I want to romp in the snow! :)
I colored Riley with the same colors pulled from the papers.
And you know I love me some buttons and ric-rac,
 it's hard to create anything without either :) 

The dsp is from a Christmas collection from K & Co which I scored at Marshalls for $1.99 this summer - a 12 x 12 pad of wonderful holiday paper!
And then the inside ... another one of my fave things to do ~
I added a matching Funny Bones Riley and Company sentiment - hee hee!

And the word I chose to use .......... SNOWBALL!!

Be sure to stop on over and see what the other CG girls made using
the fun snow theme - you can find them in my sidebar!

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!

I'll enter this card into:  Moxie Fab World's Christmas Card challenge

  16. This is adorable and I love the layout and papers. You always have some the greatest papers to put together. Snow is kind of a scarce thing in my part of Texas too. Once I made a white card that said on the front,
    "You want a white Christmas?"
    Inside: "Tear up this card and throw it in the air."
