let it SNOW!!!!! ♥








*Click to enlarge any picture if you wish...*


     Hello Friendly Bloggers and Peeps!
Today is Calendar Girls reveal day and I am very excited to see what the gals created
this month , based on the theme I challenged them with....

It's all about *SNOW*!!! You see I don't like the snow.....nope, not at all....lol ....
                        *I LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE the SNOW!!* :o)

I thought that we needed to cool down a bit from such high
temperatures that especially this month is known for....and here's what I proposed to
the rest of the very talented Calendar Girls:

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*.

Here's a list of compound words for you to chose from and get started with...(feel free to add your own)
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 ♥

SNOW words:
Snowman ; Snowberries ; Snowballs ; SnowWhite ; Snowplow ; Snowsuit ; Snowflakes ; Snowqueen ;
Snowmobile ; Snowshoes ; Snowcone ; Snowangels ; Snowfort ; Snowbird ; Snowgoose ; Snowfall.

Below : close up of the fun image...(too bad the glitter doesn't show too well here...)

 
 I chose this particular WS stamp because I NEEDED to ink it....FINALLY! lol
It was purchase months ago, amongst others precious to me WS, on an line FB craft link 
based in my area. Love the fact that not only had a mega killer deal, but in the process you
get to meet other wonderful crafty ladies.....A couple of them I became quite friends with
which it really works well for all of us and our (crafty) interests...lol ♥

My word of choice is SNOWSHOVEL...which,as you notice in my card, I had it  cut out  and
applied with dimentionals to obtain somewhat a 3D effect....
Over all my card reflects the following SNOW words: SNOWMAN, SNOW, SNOWFLAKES,
and SNOWCAPPED SIGN....


Thank YOU all for visiting , hopefully you like my August`s challenge interpretation!

Oh Sweet P this card is fantastic. That image is adorable and I love all the embellishing you did on the card, especially the layers of Christmas trees and glitter at the bottom of the shovel.
