I for Ice ABC Christmas Challenge - DT card and a few pictures

This fortnights challenge on our ABC Christmas challenge is I for Ice
I can't believe how quickly this year is going already towards the end of April.
My goodness!

I really enjoyed the H challenge for Holly Challenge and I am gonna be soooooo ready for Christmas this year! YAY!

OK so on to my I for ICE card with the optional extra of snowflakes

we are being sponsored by the lovely Stitchy bear stamps
she was kind enough to give the DT some of her lovely images to use

I have used this cute Lil Angel digi image 

Lil Angel

OK so I have used some more of the lovely lime and purple vintage core colour card and used my cuttlebug embossing folders snowflakes.

Snowflake stickers and also pearls and gems
and some pretty dotty organza ribbon.

I found a couple of other great challenges to enter too!

Winter Wonderland - Embossing
Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - Die cuts
Stamp Something - Something Layered
Simon Say's Stamp - Things with wings

While I am on the subject of Simon says Stamps Wings and Things I have some pictures for you!
now I am able to type more with my arm feeling a little better I am not fully able to sit and make cards for long periods but I have been taking some photo's of our new babies....

These are our 1 week old today Aylesbury Ducklings

Aren't they just the cutest....
They are still under a heat lamp that is why they are in the cage in the water
as they are not water proof yet awwwwwwwww bless.

I also wanted to show you a couple pictures on Jo jo now
Not sure if you can remember me posting this picture 

This was a picture taken of Jojo only 2 days old
And that was this sort of time last year! 
well I am so happy to show you this next couple of pictures as here she is now
She is the Black one in the middle
 and these are from the right
Millie (white) Daisy (fawn) our new male Riley only male so with loads of girlfriends he has the life of Riley teheheee he is (blue with white patch on chest)
next is Charlie (white) Lizzie (Tan) at the front left behind her Jojo ( Black) and the one at the back left white with tan head and wing tips we can't think of a nice name for so if you have any ideas? lol

 Riley came last week from the Weatheriggs animal rescue they have a breeding program there he was born last spring so he is the same age as Jojo.
