Let It Snow!

Good day to all my bloggy friends!
Happy Saturday!
I hope that you are all enjoying your weekend!
Today is day 1 of the week long Christmas in July Event over at Catch The Bug Challenge Blog
So, I decided to join in on the fun as well as joining in on other challenges.

1. Make It Sparkle & Shine

2. The Challenge #91 {A Sketch Challenge}
No automatic alt text available.

Here is what I created:

For my card, I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies from Gina Marie Designs and the gorgeous papers from the Zodiac Premium Stack by DCWV. It is one of my favorite stacks!
I used the adorable Polar Bear from Bugaboo Stamps which I colored with Spectrum Noir Markers. Then used a stitched/banner die to cut out my adorable image. For my sentiment, I used "Let it Snow" glitter foam stickers from Michaels which I found in my holiday stash. Next, I sprinkled sparkly circles onto my card which I made with a hole puncher and silver paper scraps.

My cards will be donated to the Cards for Little Hearts Card DriveThe purpose of Cards for Little Hearts is to collect handmade cards for the Heart Center staff at Nationwide Children’s Hospital to distribute to children with congenital heart disease and to help lift their spirits while they are hospitalized for major heart surgery or are having a particularly tough time. The current card drive will run from July 1st - August 25th with Winter Wishes or Holiday Wishes cards collection. For the complete card guidelines and sponsors list click (HERE). I would love for you all to please help spread the word about this card drive as well as participate by donating cards. There are wonderful prizes to be won!
