Not a "snowball's chance"....

....that we'll miss our annual winter get together with you!

That's right....we have family in Rhode Island we always get together with AND our dear friends in Charleston that we get together with during winter break.

Alas, it is 102 outside at this very moment and that's not even the heat index.  I'm a "hot weather girl" and I think even "I" have surpassed my comfort zone.

I used the Snowball Ants set on an easel card....it is one of the absolutely darling sets Doodle Pantry is introducing for July.  I always enjoy doing a few Christmas and winter cards during this month to stay ahead of my card making for the holidays.  Head over to the Doodle Pantry Blog and see the other newbies for this month.  Check out the freebie set that you will receive just for participating.

Added 3 layers of snow drifts using pop-ups for dimension, but hard to see in picture.  I also added ice sickles, copics, and snowflake embellishments.

When the card is folded flat.

  8. Adorable cards, Cely ;- ) Like seeing some snow from SC, even though I know you are sweltering down there. It's been terribly hot here too, but at least we haven't had the humidity we usually have so it's been more bearableI use to hate when people said it was a dry heat, but I've appreciated it this summer, ha ha. Try and stay cool, friend. Must be time for a trip to the beach ;- )

    Just had to say thank you again for the svg from June 2010 (frog on a lily pad). I had it in my computer but couldn't find it until today and I was delighted to find it and use it. Have not posted a card yet with it but will give you credit when I do.(long story why I could never find my downloaded svgs in the early days of my blogging and card making.)
    Thanks so much.
