Snow And Ice

Hello, it's Monday again, it comes round so quickly. I hope you’re all OK and have had a lovely weekend.
It is time for to remind you of our theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, this time it was Natascha's turn to choose the theme and she chose "Weather Or Not" it's all about the weather, so anything rainy, sunny, snowy or even windy.  I chose to go with snow and ice this time, LR1011 Bears On Ice, I used snowflake dies and punches and embossed snowflakes on to my image and then used embossing powder on the ice to give it a shine.
Of course you must use a House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie to join in.
