Playing The Blues with Team Trace

Hello and welcome to a freezing cold day down here in southern regions of blogland.
Speaking of which, it is truly amazing how many of our readers think we are based in the southern states of America.  Just to clarify, that is a NO.
We are based in New Zealand.  And here is a link to wikipedia's page about New Zealand
NEW ZEALAND

So now that we have established that we are a small country in the South Pacific Ocean made up of 4 main islands, and several smaller ones. It is the start of winter here and the weather is very brrrrrrrrr indeed.  In fact I can see snow on the ranges out my office window.
So our theme is WINTER BLUES.
Show us cold, snow, blue..... anything that makes you think winter.

Our truly fantastic sponsors for this challenge are...

Thanks so much!!!

And here are our design team's projects to inspire you
