Day 10 - "I"

Although Christmas in Australia is hot, I'm still going with an icy cold theme for my card today... mostly because there aren't a lot of "I" words associated with the holidays and also because I enjoy the idea of a white Christmas.


YOUR TURN: Create a paper craft project using the letter "I" as your prompt.

Your card remind me of this past summer - was very warm here in Denmark, and everyone coun't wait until it would be cooler. Now it's cooler, we wouldn't mind if it was just a tiny bit warmer... Have a blessed day.

I will give you an I for your coloring.. "Incredible" This little bird with his boots is absolutely adorable. He could sell those boots, I know I would buy them. hehehe So in Australia, Warmest Wishes has a whole new meaning.

Love your card. I always have trouble trying to figure out what to use for "I" so I went with Ivory this year. You always come up with the best ideas.

We used to have white Christmases when I was young, but now our snow seems to wait until January or February. I finished all the "insides" of my cards for "I" day but thought it would be strange to post the inside of my cards :) Off to think of another "I" idea.

SUPER CUTE card Beccy!
LOVE your cardinal surrounded by the floating snowflakes :)
... I have only seen snow a couple of times (yes, it was a long drive) and we were even lucky enough to see a light flurry on the way home one trip, just can't imagine what it would be like to be surrounded by snow for months on end ... thinking it would be wonderful to try a White Christmas though :)

I love the color scheme on this card. The light blue is in the cool color family and that red is in the warm color family and well... it just jumps up to grab attention. [Hmmm. Just like in a real family, right? Some people are calm and collected and others, well... they're not. But I'm not gonna name names. heh heh!]

A real wintry card. Like you, we are in the middle of summer for Christmas although the way the weather has been lately you wouldn't think so! I'm thinking of an icy card for my I card.

Hi Beccy, I think many Aussies dream of a true white Christmas, the closest we ever get is being fog bound... Thank you for all the inspiration. Have a good weekend.. Megan

I love the new cardinals, Beccy, and this card is fantastic! We don't have white Christmases in California, either, except in the high mountains, but I love the idea of it, too. The little boots on the cardinal are simply too cute. :-D
