Yes its our last challenge of 2011
But as always its a 2 week challenge so you can play all over Christmas! YAY!!
This fortnight the host is our lovely Helen and she is Mega excited! In Fact we are all excited about Christmas and seeing that we had 508 entries it seems you were/are too!

and guess what We loved so many of your entries are found it so hard to choose a Top 3
we didn't
we chose a TOP 10

So then what is the theme of our last Christmas Challenge of 2011...
Helen has Chosen
'Z is for Zingy Colours!'
She found this totally funny photo for our inspiration:

Brilliant isn't it!! might have to spray my Chickens these colours!
Minus the pink of course!
We have two fabulous sponsors this time

The prize from Lacey is a $20 voucher to spend at Stamp & Create!
Our other sponsor is the fun and fabulous Bugaboo Stamps

They also have their fun Bugaboo Challenge Blog
and the great prize is 7 of their fabulous digis!

Ok so I had a hard time with this challenge as the main colour in the inspirational photo is ARGH! pink!! soooooo it took me ages to choose something to make!
My image is using 'Cupcake Ornaments from Bugaboo Stamps

I have been wanting to make some of these little gift pockets for ages so have decided to make them for Christmas instead of Crackers... I made crackers last year and wanted to do something different!

Naughty as I am this is the only one it this colour! haha!
But I am definitely going to make at least 12 of these in Christmas papers too!

  4. Hi Samantha
    The shape of your creation reminds me something which my hubby buys me in the shop which is filled with liquid in summer and it goes for freezing and it makes ice-lollies. It looks great in the paper you chosen, it will look as great in Christmas papers too. Great alternative to crackers.
