ABC Christmas - Z is for.....






Zingy Colours




ABC Christmas Photo Inspiration:

Our amazing Sponsors for this challenge are...

********************

Here's my ZINGY Card.....

I used an image from Bugaboo called Udderly Amazing - not a traditional Christmas image, but with a sentiment I think it works well. As long as the 'wife' doesn't take offence - but she's a beautiful cow, so how could anyone take offence!


Please excuse the photo - my batteries in my camera need charging so I had to use my phone!

For my 'gift' project I followed Moriah's fab tutorial....



I've made a few of these fab little Paper Cones and filled them with chocolate coins as little gifts for my Nieces and Nephews


Whilst we're on things that can be hung on the tree,
Just thought you may like to see my tree that I decorated this weekend....


The Santa that you can see is a product of one of my first crafty experiences! I made him about 22 years ago (doesn't he look good for his age!) after remembering a 'Dusty-Bin' I had made in school quite a few years earlier, with a large coffee tub and fur fabric.
This Santa comes out every year and is filled with small gifts for my 3 children, not labelled but wrapped in particular paper for each of them! These gifts are then opened randomly from Christmas Eve morning until they've all gone - usually about a week after Christmas - I love anything that prolongs the festivities!
The best thing is the 3 of them are already looking in him to see if the pressies are there - and they are 20 and 23yrs old!

My Y for Yipee is using one of the gorgeous images from Karen's Doodles



...isn't he gorgeous!

I've coloured him with Promarkers and used a selection of papers from the Milton & Co Christmas Paper Stack.
I tried to match his chair with the green in my chosen papers but as I only have 2 green Promarkers at the moment it didn't match as much as I'd have liked it to - oh well I'll just have to make sure I have a few on my Christmas list!
I have dusted the edges with chalk and the sentiment was done in Word.


Please pop over to ABC Christmas Challenge and take a look at the rest of the 'Yipee' cards - I'm sure you'll be making one very soon that you could enter - especially with all of those amazing sponsor prizes we have!
