Christmas at Sweet Stampin' August Challenge

It's the second Wednesday of the month and time for our new challenge at
Christmas at Sweet Stampin'
where our June theme is
Penguins or Polar Bears
and we are delighted to be sponsored by
Sweet Pea Stamps

I have used theis absolutely delightful Snow Pals image from Mo Manning's Digital Pencil.  You can find it here.   I coloured mine with Copics, sparkled it within an inch of it's life and teamed it with one of my oldest and most favourite K&Co paper packs for the side and inside panels.  The image was masked off in order to heat emboss a Cover A Card Impression Obsession snowflake stamp as background.   

I used a number of Memory Box Dies too.  The Merry Christmas is one of my favourites and I just love the penguins. It's called Playful Penguins and is available here.  You get three different ones in the set and I cut white and black versions and then mounted them up and coloured the faces on.  

There is one on the inside too, together with a Memory Box swirly snowflake die.  I love this die and I forget that I have it!!!    My sentiment, framed within Spellbinders Labels 18 - my favourite Nestie - is by Papertrey Ink  

My fellow CASSettes have produced lovely inspiration for you to start making those Christmas cards early.  We would all be delighted if you would share some love with them and then come and join in the fun this month.

I am entering my card into the challenges at 
Whimsy Stamps - Christmas in July
The Ribbon Girls - Anything Goes
