Live and Love Crafts "Ice"

Brrrrrrrrr just the WORD "ice" makes me cold however playing with pretend ice is no problem! LOL! This week at LLC we are inspired by "ICE" so I've thrown in a few icy pieces here and there.  I started out by using the very pretty Pion "Silent Night" papers. 

Love this Tim Holtz snowflake border! I added a few more Memory Box snowflake dies and this gorgeous new center "Pearl Star flower" from Maya Road that is new to the store. 


I punched a few Magnolia Doohickey slender trees, distressed the edges and added some Twinklets Diamond Dust on each for an icy feeling.  Love my shabby seam binding bows!


Here again with some more Twinklets covering my poinsettia's!  Also, I added some frosted berries to the centers as well as a few bunches around my bouquet.  They are soooo pretty and in lots of gorgeous colors!


Lastly here's a closer look at my image and pretty shabby blue Frantage!!  This image is "Winter's Day" from Saturated Canary and available at LDRS

I added some glitter under her feet to give the impression she's standing on ice.  Now if that were me, I'd be flat on my butt!  LOL!  Also don't you think this resin heart piece is pretty?!!  Me too!! 


So are you on countdown for Christmas?  I'm not quite ready to be yet.  LOL!  I'm so glad the snow hasn't stayed so far but it should have.  Every morning I wake up and don't see it I wanna give someone a high five.  LOL!  I suspect this weekend will be it though.  YAYto making it to mid November!! 

Have a wonderful and creative weekend my crafty friends!

Wonder if they have a Card Makers Hall of Fame somewhere cause I'd be the first to nominate you. Another beautiful piece of art with such elegant embellishments! "Hugs"

One of my favourite colour combos, and you always do your brown & blue cards so well! The diamond dust is also one of my favourite X-mas products and it looks amazing against the dark kraft paper. Fantastic colouring as well! Hugz, Sandy
