Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Icicle

Happy January and welcome back to the Curtain Call :)   It is time for a brand new year of inspiration photos to play with and this time round we are still in winter mode!  Pretty well suited to the weather much of the country has been experiencing over the last month or so!

I pulled out one of my hoarded papers by Bo Bunny (love this paper!!) as it was the perfect icy, glittery fit for this photo.  I also pulled out one of my favorite PTI snowflake dies for a wintery feel, added a sentiment flag and a button with some twine.  Nice, quick and easy card.


We had more snow in December than we have had the prior six years combined, not to mention some rather cold temperatures for our neck of the woods, which means the snow has stuck around for weeks (versus our usual snows one day and washes away in the rain the next day).  Been quite the adjustment for us West Coasters!  Must say, I do enjoy the brightness the snow brings as it is a nice change from the grey skies and rain we usually get.

Can't wait to see your creations in the gallery!
