Come on back tomorrow for more creativity.


  1. Great use of texture on the Santa and I like the scene and colours with the snowman.

  2. Oh wow such cuteness here!! Beautiful colors with the snowman and I just LOVE that Santa with the embossing on his beard!! :) Hope you enjoy your weekend friend! HUGS

  3. Shhhhhhhh...don't be wishing for cooler weather. HAHAHA You know how I love the hot. But, I am ready to start making snowman and Christmas cards. Your snowman is just adorable and I think my heart skipped a beat when I saw your card. And, your Santa is awesome with that cute, embossed beard. Super cards and wonderful papers on both.

  4. That's right, we are not ready for cooler weather. :) Love your cute cards. The snow scene is so adorable. I love Santa's beard and I almost did the same thing with the embossing. I didn't want to do any fussy cutting. :)

    Have a good weekend.

  5. Very cute. Love the texture on Santa's Beard. Great job on your first Blog Hop

  6. Both cards are adorable! Love Santa's embossed beard and the colors you used for your snowman!

  7. Your Santa and Snowman cards are super cute and great to see Christmas in August. You are inspiring me to get started! Love the embossing textured effect on Santa.

  8. Nancy,
    I love the scene you created with the snowman and your paper piecing is awesome! My fav is Santa and the EF you used for his beard - wow - it really looks wonderful. Both cards are fantastic.

  9. Fabulous creations. Love the pattern papers you chose.

  10. Wow, amazing cards for Christmas, love the Santa especially (he' my man)!

  11. Gorgeous cards Nancy, I love the sweet snowman and jolly Santa image.

  12. Both of these are so cute. Love the paper piecing on the first one and Santa's beard looks fabulous on the second.

  13. Very cute cards, Nancy - and such a great way of using paper piecing in those small areas (I always forgot to use paper piecing). I especially like the dry embossed Santa's beard! hugs, de
