ABC Christmas Challenge & DT call!

Well I really hope you all had the best Christmas ever!

we had a lovely day at my parents… Today we have everyone at our house! that’s 9 to dinner..

Also today is Wednesday so that mean its the Last ABC Christmas challenge of the year! and also its 3 years since Helen and I started the ABC Christmas challenges
Saturday, 19th December 2009. Thank you all the Designers old and current!

While I am on the topic of Designers at ABC Christmas challenge we are a little sad today as Miria 1 of our lovely teamies is has decided to step down and concentrate on her New Italian DT spot! and they are VERY lucky to have her!! way to go Miria
So as we have lost 2 designers we want to have a DT call on this challenge! so we can find some new Teamies to start the 2013 challenges!
So, If you think you can:
  • Make a Christmas card/project for each fortnightly challenge
  • Take a turn in hosting a couple of challenges in 2013
  • Comment on a couple in every 10 entries for each challenge
Then, simply play along with this fortnights challenge, and add 'DT' after your name in the linky, on the Main challenge HERE and you could be getting ahead for next Christmas with the most friendly DT in blogland :0) Woo hoooo!!! so don’t wait to play along come on we want you!! 

OK so the Challenge this time is Hosted by Dorte and the challenge theme is 

Z for Zoo animals.

I am convinced you ALL have plenty of images with zoo Animals and can not wait to see what everyone comes up with….. Christmas related of course!
So then our Sponsors

For my creation I wanted to make a little packet topper for some Macaroons I have made
I have used Candy Cane Bear from Bugaboo to top the the bag

These are for Jack aged 7 I think he will love them!

Here are a couple of challenges for this project!
Hooked on Craft – Christmas
Ladybug Crafts - Anything Goes For Christmas

Here a couple of other things I want to share today also!
these are some wooden ornaments that are bare wood and I have coloured them with distress inks and added white gel pen for highlights and then puffy stuff at the top of the stockings once dry I used my Big Bite to punch the holes and add twine, The letters are cut from the Olivia font on my cuttlebug in black and then stuck on and glossy accents to make them shiny too!
