Icicles for the CCC!

Hello Everyone, I hope you are all well and enjoying whatever you happen to be doing.

It's been a very fast couple of weeks because the Christmas Card Club Ladies are back to share their latest creations, theme this time around chosen by yours truly which is ICICLES.
Now I'm not sure why I chose this to be the challenge because I've not really got all that much by way of icicles, but I managed to come up with this;
I've used a log cabin stamp from a free collection that came along with Creative Stamping Magazine, the sentiment is also from the same set. Loads of Star Dust on the roof and on the hills.
An icicle die from Die 'sire dies, and various shades of blue to give the cold look.
I'm not all that sure about the icicle die, I think it looks a bit  like a comb, oh well it will have to do.
I'm sure the other team members will come up with some fabulous creations, so don't forget to pop over to see them.

Once again thanks so much for all your lovely comments on my previous card, enjoy your weekend and see you soon,

Good Morning Kate. What a fabulous card. Like you I had nothing at all with icicles so had to improvise as you do at times like these. Thank you for choosing this challenge as it did get my brain working again. Enjoy your Day. Hugs Rita xxxx

Brrrrr definitely icy. I see what you mean about the icicles, I think it is because they are at an angle so there is space above. The idea of a comb in the sky made me smile x

This little log cabin in a blizzard of snow looks very icey indeed. I also like the bank of icicles at the top. Love the way you've done the sparkle stickles around the sky...just like swirling sleet & snow. Thanks for a good challenge, and TFS. Hugs

A great icicle themed card Kate, love the added sparkle too.
Thank goodness we didn't get the snow forecast over the weekend, although this card makes it look very pretty. We just know in real life it's not so much fun if you are over the age of 16! ;)

Hugs Erika. x

I really had to stretch my imagination for this challenge. Lots of lovely ice on your card and all those blues do give you the chill factor!. I love that icicle die. I didn't have one in my stssh so hsd to come up with an alternative. Hugs Mrs A.

Sue said...

Your frosty card looks like our weather last week, then the temps went up and the snow melted away. Another round predicted for this week. Oh well, soon we will be complaining that it's too hot! Nice winter scene, complete with icicles!!

Hugs
