Miss August's Theme is Cool!

On the 28th of each month, the Calendar Girls blog group has a special monthly challenge that is hosted by one of our members. The hostess gets to choose the theme and all the members create a card or project based on that theme.

This month our hostess is Paola (a.k.a. Sweet P). Because she was tired of the heat and high humidity, she chose a "cool" theme - we are to create anything that begins with the word snow. Well, that's easy....

Yep, I used a SNOWman (or is it a SNOWgirl?)!!!

Here's the inside of my card:

I'm really excited to see what the other Calendar Girls created! You can check their blogs, too - you'll find the links in my left sidebar.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
