What a great song title for a heatwave Sylvia!!! lol Hope you're all ready for the arrival of what looks like the entire British Navy coming to defend you all from those very nasty people on the other side of the border........hehe Regarding the dies I always had problems before I got a very simple tip (you know, the sort that make you go "duh......why didn't I think of that"!). Take a piece of card and die cut the shape you want to use. Stamp the image and then take the negative of the diecut (eg card with hole in it......) place over stamped image and line it up. When you've got it in place take the die and fit it back into the negative "hole", fix with low tack tape so it doesn't move and run it through your die cutting machine...,....easy peasy eh? Hope this helps.

I love the way Frosty's legs sit outside the is so effective!
This is a lovely card...Frosty looks great and I love the icicle border!


Hi Sylvie

A great Christmas card.

Love that snowman and the great background.

I am sure handling all those icicles will have cooled you down a bit!!

Hope you are having a good time with your vistors.

All super busy at this end!
