PCP Challenge!

Hi everyone! I sure am thankful for air conditioning this weekend! Gosh it's been miserably hot! Yesterday I said to my husband "have you ever been close to a camp fire and breathed in the air?" and he said yes, and I said "that is exactly what it feels like when you step outside - your first breath just feels like the air sears your lungs." I hope you are all staying cool where you are!

Yesterday Heather set a new challenge on the Squigglefly group at Papercraft planet, and it is a really easy one so I hope you will play along! They have been featuring different Squigglefly artists, and this week is none other than Chesney Young! You get a double chance of winning the prize if you use one of her images!

I will probably end up doing another one with one of Chesney's images, but I already had this snowman from Cheryly Alger and decided to make a twist fold card!

Hopefully you can tell from the photos how this card opens. I colored it with copic markers and used designer paper from My Mind's Eye. The snowflake is a Martha Steward punch that I added stickles and a diamond center to.

Please play along - it's a fun and easy challenge and you have a chance to win! Thanks for looking!

It's a cutie! Love the addition of the stone to the snowflake.
But I can't make out how you made the twist fold card. Can we say "DEMO"?

I know what you mean about the heat. It's HOT in Texas too! :O)

HOLLY...HOLLY...HOLLY...can you hear my chant??? We need a demo!!! First a tent card, now this...just where are you getting your extra smarts??? When you get my age, learning something new is especially exciting!!! :) This card is beyond FABULOUS! Of course Cheryl's image is perfect for this and with the DPs you used...what a masterpiece! SOOO ADORABLE and such a cool design!

I really hope I can play with y'all at PCP...would definitely be easy since I have LOADS of Ches's images! I just need to put everything else on hold so I can have some fun! :)
