You can make anything you like, maybe a card, a scrapbook layout of even home d├ęcor. 
You can use any products you like to enter as long as it follows the theme for this week. We don’t have many rules but check them out in the side bar if you need to.

So let’s see what the design team have made for us.
 We have a new GDT joining us this week, she will be here for the whole of Ocober, how lucky are we!!! So let me introduce you to Helen Nile by showing you her make for us first.

Helen I've used paper from the 'Eden - Paper Heaven Plain Jane' download and a digi called 'Polar Bear' from the Octavia Frosted Winter collection. My style is CAS with layers.

Aunty Sue -Oh Cold Ice & Snow can only mean Winter so today I am bringing you a Concertina Fold Card using Octavia Frosted Winter CD. Dont you just love this CD for all those Frosty images. This has 2 pre coloured images on it The Ice Palace which has lots of added 3d gloss and also Hot Chocolate because you have to keep warm. The sentiment is also from the CD. All these can be purchased from the shop HERE. I have used lots of silver Mirri card and some Silver Organza ribbon to carry the theme of Cold 

Lynda: The new Frosted Winter collection is just perfect for this challenge.  The papers,embellishments and sentiment I used are all from this  CD or if you prefer you can also get  it as a instant download.  The digi stamp I used is called Ice Fishing and she can be bought separately here. Have Fun xx 

Jane – Hi everyone! For my take on the Ice and Snow theme I also used the must-have OCTAVIA FROSTED WINTER bundle.  I used the beautiful pre-coloured imagery that characterises this awesome collection to create an easel card. The gorgeous scene is FROSTED FOX and can also be purchased individually if you wish.  Have a lovely crafty day! xxx

 Julie -- snow and cold - it sounds like the perfect opportunity to take your 4-legged buddy sledding!  I used the Work & Play 5 Festive Hollybobs Digital Download or CD Rom collection for the darling gift bag and pre-printed Hollybobs Sleightime image.  You can buy the Hollybobs Sleightime image separately, but there's so much good stuff here, why would you want to? Happy crafting! 

AnjieEverything I have used on this card can be found on the Octavia Frosted Winter collection. You can also buy this as a CD should you prefer HERE. Or as separates HERE. I made a shaped card out of the door embellishment and then cut out and added all the other bits and bobs. I have layered lots of them up to make it as 3D as possible. You can't see from the photo but I also printed everything onto linen card so it has more texture. You can see more on my blog.

When I think of feeling cold (and ice and snow) I think of the colour blue and so this week I've used some of the blue papers featuring snowflakes, together with embellies and bows and sentiments from the Festive Hollybob collection available on Download and CD to cover these fab MDF reindeers and then just blinged them up with glitter and twine.  More photos on my blog.  

Emma - I have used Whale of a Time from the Frosted Winter collection that can be found as an individual digi Here. All of the papers & embellishments are from the full Frosted Winter Collection that can be found Here. I have fussily cut out all the embellishments & have added glamour dust to the trees for that bit of winter sparkle.

Monica- For me, cold and snow is not a reality. In Costa Rica, our coldest day could reach 16 °C and when that happens everybody is freezing... I know you ar laughing right now lol 
As most of my teannies, I thought Octavia Frosted Winter was perfect for this challenge, so 
I made box card with papers, elements, sentiments from that collection and the lovely Octavia Hot Chocolate.

Wendy - For this weeks card I've used a Snowman from Picnix 2 Gingerbread Twist, on the front and cut the edge. The backing paper is from the same collection as is the frame and sentiment. However, the sentiment comes in black, but I have recoloured it white and put on a black background for the blackboard effect.

Audrey used an image, sentiment and digi papers from the Work and Play 5 Festive Hollybobs Full Collection.  The image, Hollybobs Sleightime can also be purchased as a single digi HERE.  I choose my embellies from Octavia Frosted Winter Full Collection, I cut 2 out with scissors and the 3 button embellies are cut with stitched die.  I added Stickles to the image and the tree embellie.

Great makes from the DT I’m sure you will agree.
