You must all remember "Frosty" right?
This one will hopefully have a cooling affect for a very sweet friend, in a very hot locale!

Isn't that gold and gray a lovely combo?
Marybeth has sent me many of these lovely scalloped panels ... I was thrilled to find another in the kit! Thank you, Marybeth! Could I resist a white on white card? NO!!

Now off we go to see what my sister 12 Kits of Occasions girls have been up to! I adore them, and every single card they make! xx
