Let it SNOW....STAMPlorations October 2018 CAS Card Challenge~Anything Goes, optional colour twist: Black


This week sees the STAMPgirls return from summer break to resume the fabulous STAMPlorations challenges. Today, we're launching the ever popular STAMPlorations October 2018 CAS Card Challenge~Anything Goes, optional colour twist: Black.

We're having an uncharacteristically (or perhaps this is the new norm...) Fall, with temperatures well into the single digits and major accumulations of snow (yes...I said the 's' word). My fall wardrobe has been bypassed; straight into the winter woolies, scarves, mittens and hats. Fingers crossed that we'll soon see a return to the 'usual' highs but...given the forecast, I'm thinking not likely. So...little wonder that the 'weather' inspired the CAS card I'm sharing today:

I just love this snowman (but I'm not really wishing for snow, snow and snow - we have enough already, thank you)! Hope my card makes you smile!

Please head over to the main challenge post to my teammates' fabulous CAS designs. They're soooo talented!

A reminder about the CAS Challenge rules (which are ever-so-friendly):
  • You can link up to 3 CAS (clean and simple) cards with or without the colour twist.
  • Non-STAMPlorations products are OK
  • To qualify for the prize, please display challenge graphic and link back to the challenge post (blogs only)
  • Prizes: $15 GC for the winner (voted by the team); $5 GC to three (3) randomly picked players
Inspired to play along?  I think you are!

Looking forward to seeing your CAS creations in the gallery!

Thank you for dropping by!

So cute, Carol. Love that his buttons are on the die cut sentiment.

Smiling at your cute snowman, but frowning that you have to deal with so much snow so early in the season! Not fair! But you have a wonderful attitude. He is adorable and I like how you have the sentiment popping out. The top hat looks amazing in green. Love your coloring!! Hugs!

Great CAS inspiration. I understand why you think about winter, bbrrrr. I love the sentiment raised, makes the card even more eye-catching. I also love this green hat, so beautifully glossing on a white background.
In Poland, we have temperatures around 24 degrees Celsius, almost summer. Maybe that's why I still sit in a summer theme, Spain, flamenco, relax :-).
