ABC Challenge - I for Ice and Snow

Has another week past already?I had great intentions of crafting more but home life is taking over at the minute so only managing to get dt cards made. Sad really as I am only on two dt challenges!!

I am now thinking It's probably too late to panic about getting my christmas cards all made for Dec, as to date I have only managed two, this being the second. There's always next year....right???

This card was made for the new challenge over at ABC and the theme this fortnight is Ice and Snow. I thought this Magnolia image was perfect not only for the challenge but suited hubby's christmas card too.What do you think??

I decided to be a bit fussy with this one and while I was setting up my craftroom I came across loads of hidden treasures that I had forgotten about.
