Sparkles Christmas #69: Show Me a Snowman!

Hi, everyone! Welcome to the October Sparkles Christmas Challenge. How perfect that we have a new card challenge on World Cardmaking Day!

This month's challenge was chosen by the Sparkles Christmas fearless leader Caz... and is all about snowmen. Well, snowladies and snowkids will work, too.  :)

In addition, this month's prize, which is pictured below, is sponsored by Caz.

As luck would have it, I recently won a Simon Says goodie bag... which included cardstock, stickers, stamps, and embellishments that coordinated perfectly with Doodle Pantry's Polar Pals paper collection. This challenge was the perfect opportunity to feature an adorable Polar Pals snowkid sticker inside of a shaker-card window.

Doodle Pantry Polar Pals paper and coordinating stickers; Recollections silver glitter paper
coordinating Simon Says Stamp and stash cardstock; Cored-inations silver vellum
sentiment: SSS Flurries of Love and Stampin' Up! Good Greetings, in StazOn jet black
SU embossing folder; SSS snowflake "sequins"
Lawn Fawn mini snowflake dies; Paper Smooches wave/scallop punch
EK, Recollections, Marvy, and SU punches; Creative Memories oval cutting system
adhesives: Scotch ATG; Zig 2-way glue pen; Zots glue dots; Elmer's foam tape

The three previous months, I've been honored to join the Sparkles Christmas gals as a Guest Designer. I'm thrilled to say that this challenge marks my debut as a full-fledged Sparkles Christmas designer. My thanks to Caz for the invitation to join this amazingly talented group of ladies who love to make Christmas cards. And, my thanks to the team for its warm welcome.

Hope you'll join in all the snowy fun at Sparkles Christmas this month.

Parting Thoughts

Think I'm going to link this little snowkid up to the Early Holiday Cards 4 Kids Challenge over at SAS4Kids and the Anything Goes Challenge at Simon Says.  :)

Whether you're at a cardmaking party or watching football or both, have a great day. Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
