Have a Jolly Holiday

This adorable big head snowman stamp is available at DRS Designs starting tomorrow! I love snowmen!!! I love how big he is without being overwhelming for a standard A-2 card.

This first jolly snowman card was made for SUnday's Featured Stamper challenge on SCS.

Featured Stamper: akronstamperdpk
This is Darlene's beautiful card.

* I kept the same basic layout and most of the same colors.
* I used a different snowman image.
* I used a CB BG instead of dp.
* I used less layers and no piercing or ribbon. I added a sentiment, brads, punches, and a scalloped Nestie.

(This 2nd card was made for the Monday's SCS Clean & Simple Challenge: Make0ver)

It was a sad day because it's the last challenge of the summer and for our wonderful design team. Harriet, Ann, and Lisa have been awesome and such a great source of inspiration. I'm very grateful for their time and talent.

It also means that the submissions for the Autumn DT has closed. Our current and past design team members will select our new DT and I will break any ties if necessary. I can't wait to see who they will be. Have you seen all the stunning creations?!? The new DT members will be notified on Tuesday and an announcement will be made soon after that.

And one more thing this last day of the summer CAS challenges means... It's make-over day! Find one of your OWN cards you'd like to remake. Remember to make it CAS {wink}. You can choose a CAS cards that you just want to improve. OR you can find a heavily layered and embellished card to make CAS.

I personally have a ton of choices since I'm an equal opportunity stamper. :) I use stamps from many companies and I make CAS and embellished cards!!!

If you can, please link the original card in your comment box when uploading to public galleries. I chose to makeover the first DRS snowman card to make it more CAS.
