Christmas Cards in August!


Yes, it's amazingly the first of August!  How that happened I have no idea!  Being the first of the month, that means another challenge over at CCAYR!

Here's our challenge for August.... Since many of us have had a lot of heat this summer, we're going to cool things down with SNOWFLAKES! Yes, as some of you guessed from the sneaks, your cards this month need to have snowflakes of some kind - in the paper, embellishments, stamping or whatever you like!

I pulled out some old Basic Grey Figgy Pudding and found this big snowflake sticker and that immediately created this image in my head!  The best part is I have everything I need to make another one too since it was a huge sticker I cut in half!

Check out the blog for all the other design team creations as well.  It's amazing to see how different all the cards are based on the same challenge!

*Remember if you do 5 cards this month following the challenge, your name will go into a draw for a prize at the end of AUGUST! (this challenge CAN be combined with any other blog or forum challenges that you do this month.)
This month the RAK is another great set from SU!


Please upload your cards to your blog, a gallery, or photobucket and remember to give us the EXACT links to see them. You can do 5 of the same cards or 5 different ones (as long as they follow the current challenge) If you do 5 of the same, please show us a picture of them altogether. Thanks!


YOU NEED TO LET US KNOW IN THIS POST WHEN YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE 5 CARDS IN ORDER TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE MONTHLY PRIZE.

Cheers,
