August Calendar Girls Challenge

(OOPS!  I mistakenly did next months challenge instead of July's.  Sorry! Check back August 28th for my card for the July challenge.).   But here is next months creation. :)

Our Calendar Girls hostess for August was Paola a/k/a Sweet P.  And her challenge to us was as follows:

"For the usually HOT and HUMID month of AUGUST, I would rather do something to get cooled off ...but what?
mmmm..I got it! We could make some SNOWballs....or even SNOWangels in the middle of summer, but how? ♥

Here's what I suggest :
Your challenge for this month is to create something with anything that begins with the word SNOW.
However, here's the catch: Your card should NOT reflect Christmas at all...but rather just images AND  sentiment( s ) that start with *SNOW*.

and to....

Once you blog your card, please also make sure to add what was your word choice that your card reflects, and also WHY you selected THAT particular word..."

So based on the challenge here is my card.  I just love this Whippersnappers stamp and knew I wanted to use it for the August challenge.  I colored the image with my Copic markers.  The felt snowflake is a retired embellishment from SU! and the pearl is from a packet I picked up at Joann's.  The DP is Snow Much Fun from Three Bugs in a Rug.

Cool Creations

This month's theme for our Dueling Darlings was:


Barb and I were the hostesses and the Dazzlers kit contained the following:

DP & Ribbon:  Ice Cream Parlor by Stampin' Up!
Image:  Good Ol' Summertime by Stampin' Up!
Paper Straw: A Muse
Buttons & Flowers: SU! and Michael's or Joanns
Craftworkcards Candi – pink dots

We also asked all the Darling that when posting their Cool Creations on their blogs that they let us know what their favorite summertime cool treat is. Is it watermelon, ice cream, lemonade?

Here is my Cool Creation:

I had the idea of somehow incorporating a packet of Crystal Light into my creation so I decided to make a pocket card.  You can pull out the inside portion of the card and include a message.  

I like to enjoy many different summer time cool treats but I guess I would have to say my favorites, at least this summer, have been watermelon and fresh raspberries!
