August Challenge at Sweet Stampin' Christmas

Good morning, our August challenge is up and running at Christmas at Sweet Stampin', quite scary to think that there are only 4 more challenges this year! This month our optional theme is Snow people.
I used a very old wood backed stamp and coloured with copics. then stamped and heat embossed the sentiment stamp across the bottom of the image and on the 2 layers beneath...try not to look at the wonky bits where it's not lined up properly...then added some die cut foliage and a scrap of twine.
Please hop over to CaSS and check out the beautiful cards from my teamies! 
I'm off to lunch today, with my daughter, DIL and all 4 granddaughters- lovely!
Thanks for visiting
have a great day

Chris, this is so melt-my-heart sweet - lots of nostalgia and yesteryear "feels" to it. I love the little snowflakes all over, and the bough with greens and berries! I cannot imagine "cold" anything these days. Our hottest days are generally in September, but we've definitely been having them all August! And steam rising from the pasture in the middle of the day, and windows coated with water on the outside (not just mere condensation but real water!). Your luncheon date sounds like a beautiful way to spend time with the specialest of the girls in your life! Hope you enjoy many more days like that, too! hugs, de

Lisa Lynn said...

I can't believe what I did....I am up way tooooo late since I have to work in the morning. I was thinking about another pet sympathy card that I have to make for my friend...Pat and I typed Pat instead of Chris. I am so sorry...I am so tired and not thinking straight. Please forgive me.
