It's Thursday...

...and day four of the "Catch the Bug" Christmas in July Challenge.

Today's challenge is 'Snow Business' - so I've created a stepper card with a snowy winter scene (PP is by Best Creations).
Oh, and look who's here again - Christmas Ruby. Plenty of Ice Stickles used on and around Ruby to copy the shimmer effect that is on the PP.
I cut the PP to create a bit of dimension to the scene - rather than straight lines there are a few trees sticking up above the 'steps' of the card.
The sentiment is from a Papermania clear stamp set - A Silent Night. I used my 'Pool' Adirondack ink pad as this was the closest shade I have that tones with the PP.
Oh and here are 'those' boots again...really not the thing for wandering around in the snow LOL

Tomorrows challenge, although Christmas is 'Anything Goes' so I'll have to have a think about that.......................................

I am so loving all your Christmas cards, might have to revisit the ones I've made to see if I need any more to add to because I keep feeling I'm missing out every time I see your gorgeous work Toni!

Hope you are having a great day

I LOVE Christmas Ruby! She's almost exactly as I imagined my Aunt would be by now (she's not, just in case anyone was wondering *lol*)
Great card too... it's so full of humour - made me smile loads :)

Oh, Claire... just in case you pop back and see this - no heat gun needed for stickles... just loads of patience as you sit and watch them dry *lol*
