Frozen ...

... in more ways than one!  LOL!
Good Morning my friends!
It's another COLD day here in NE Ohio but I shouldn't complain, this time last week was about 30 degrees LOWER than today!  Brrrr!
I shared these photos over on my FB page over the weekend but wanted to share them here as well.  Hubby and I are in the routine of going out to breakfast early on the weekends then doing our grocery shopping.  Well, last weekend when we visited a new grocery in the area, (temperatures were in the single digits) I was thrilled to see these beautiful ice carvings on display outside the store with the characters from the Disney movie FROZEN.  Aren't they splendid ... such talent.

This past weekend was a bit warmer so needless to say they weren't as 'exquisite' as they were the weekend before when I snapped these photos with my phone.
I knew ABOUT the movie but hadn't seen it ... until this week. Our neighbor lent us their copy over the holidays and after seeing the carvings we decided to watch it.  LOVE the characters in all the Disney movies ... don't you!

I discovered these free images of Elsa online and decided to make a couple birthday cards.  Though difficult to see, there is sparkle on the snowflakes as well as the snowflakes in Elsa's hair.

Papers:  SU Bermuda Bay cs, Paper Pizazz dp, white cs
Stamps/Ink:  The Stamp Pad Co., Just For Fun/Versafine Onyx
Accessories:  Wild Rose Studio 'Snow Flurry' (cut into 3 pieces), Diamond Stickles
Papers:  SU Bermuda Bay cs, White cs, DCWV Winter Mat Stack (OLD)
Dies:  Memory Box 'Snowflake Corner', Cheery Lynn Designs 'Happy', 'Birthday', 'Daughter'
Accessories:  Waterfall Stickles, Diamond Stickles, Fiskars swivel craft knife, E6000 spray adhesive

A bit of fussy cutting and die cutting was all that was needed to create these fun cards.  I hope they'll put a smile on the little girl's face who will receive them.

A few challenges to share in ...
Red Carpet Studio Challenge - Inspired by movie Frozen

Well it's the beginning of a new week and I have a lot of things on my ToDo List today so I'd better quit 'playing around' and get busy!  LOL!
Have a great day!
Those of you in the 'Frozen' temperatures ... please be safe out there and stay warm!

As Always ...
