Thanks for your interest in the DT call too :-) We have had loads of interest !! YAY !! :-)

It was my turn to choose the theme this week and I chose ,,

‘I’ for Icy Inspiration :-)

I have picked 2 fab photo’s for you to choose from, please pop over to the ABC Challenge blog to see them ! :-)



I used this very cute Chillin Penguin image from Stamps Happen, coloured with copics, cut out and popped onto a piece of white card that was embossed with a Swiss Dots folder. I used black card and the background white card was also embossed with a snowflake folder. I added a Martha Stewart Himalayan snowflake and punched an Icicle border. The ribbon was in my drawer and I finished with a Robins Nest Metallic Dew Drop and some star dust stickles :-)
