And now you know...

You're not alone if you've wondered and now it's okay, you're not alone.  Many of us have been closet "wonderers"of what goes on between icicles.  There has to be something...they are huddled so close together on our gutters each and every winter season. Well, thanks to the wonders of technology, I have been able to capture this rare photograph of icicles in action and finally, now you know!
Meet Iris, Indy, Izzy and Ivan Icicle as they dangle from my gutter. Yes, this a real picture of the gutter and how fun is that to take an actual photograph and use it as your own backdrop? Well that's my TIP for today because it's time for a CHRISTMAS theme over at Top Tip Tuesday and this cuddly little bunch is from one of our sponsors Stamp Fairy titled Group Hug; although by the looks of it, I highly doubt Iris is quite thrilled with a group hug right now. ;)
It's only the 4th of December so if you still need to make your last minute Christmas cards or goodies, join us for the merriment of the holiday and you could be in the winning for a prize from our sponsors Stamp Fairy and Simon Says Stamp.
Hugs n' Hang In There for the Holidays...

Once again I'm speechless. Where do you come up with these things? I'd love to spend an hour or two just crawling around in that brain of yours. No, that doesn't sound at all creepy, does it.

Thanks for the latest design.

Hugs,
L.

I LOVE the real photo behind the card, that is absolute GENUS!!! And guess what, I have something cool on my crafting table for you! Got to get it finished up and into the mail. Not like you need any help being inspired...but I think you'll like it!

Have you had your IQ tested? You must be off the charts to think of this stuff. :-) Icicles...you kill me and I guess one of them could too if I was standing in the wrong place and the wrong time huh. Very clever my girl. Hugs!

OK...I am running out of ways to say brilliant...
This is such a unique idea and has unlimited possibilities depending on the photo! As far as the icicles... just another wonderful glimpse into your inner realm! The bow was a nice touch and I love the string of lights!

Sandy said...

"Is it frosty in here or is it just me?" Said one icicle to another. "Don't turn on those lights!!!" said one icicle to another. "Drip, drip, drip - did some one leave the faucet running?" Said one icicle to another. "Did you just see that gorgeous flake drift by?" said one icicle to another. "I can see right through you" said one icicle to another.
Okay - I am starting to bore myself.
