Yule Log: A traditional French bûche de Noël always looks just the right side of cutely enchanting, and there is nothing hard to like about its tender, melting chocolatiness. But I warm to it most of all for the rich pagan symbolism: it is no less than a cake-emulation of the log that the Norsemen would drag home through the streets to burn in celebration of the winter solstice and to honour the gods and hope, thus, to cajole from them a good year to come.
Spectacular photographs show the moment Niagara Falls FROZE
Niagara Falls fact. It's true, there have been winters so cold in Canada that Niagara Falls froze. You can see pictures in the historic Brock Hotel in Niagara Falls (along with a picture of Marilyn Monroe visiting the Falls!!)

I used both the positive and the negative of the Floral Lace Heart die, attaching them to my carnation card base to allow the color to show through. Then I just added this layered stamped flower (Hero Arts 3 Dotted Flowers cling set), some die-cut Folk Art Floral leaves,the sentiment (love the font!) from Simon's Best Mom Ever stamp set, and a couple of my favorite Hero Arts heart pearls.
