SSDS - Christmas Challenge

Hello fellow crafters! It's been a long hot week here in New Hampshire! We've been in the 90-100 degree F range all this week and I am definitely looking forward to the change over to 70's! Hot, Hot week for the second week of school for the kids! Ah well, they are off on a long weekend now anyway!

Ok, on to the challenge at Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturdays! This week we are looking for your Christmas cards! I, for one, have started seeing what designs I want to make for my Christmas cards this year, so I have been experimenting with different ideas!

This week I used another stamp from the Stampin' Up set Snowy Play that I borrowed from my MIL. Thank you! :) I stamped this skating snowman on white cardstock and colored him with my copics. Then I did some creative cutting! Not exactly sure where I came up with this, just did! lol After I had him all cut out I glittered the whole "ice" area. The red and green paper is from Stampin' Up and the dp is a random scrap. I finished it off with some offray ribbon.

I am entering this card into these challenges:

Creative Inspirations - Christmas in August
Crafty Cardmakers - glitter and sparkle
Paper Sundaes - Christmas in August
Christmas Card Challenge - sparkle and shine

Don't forget to check out the other DT projects and upload your own at SSDS!
