Merry Christmas :-)

How fitting that the last ABC Christmas Challenge of the year should fall on Christmas Day :-) I did intend to schedule this but ran out of time, so I am writing this whilst the turkey is cooking in the oven and Christmas carols are playing in the background ,,,, :-)

This time it is Helen's turn to host the challenge and she chose ,,,,
'Z is for Zany'
(Use a funny/humorous image on your Christmas project)

We have a wonderful sponsor for this challenge:

The prize is 7 digis from Bugaboo Stamps for one lucky winner!

I always think House Mouse are the funniest, zany images so I used this 'Hang On Tight' image which is one of the new cling stamps from Stampendous :-)

I made the sky background with Stormy Sky Distress paint and a Snow Cap Dabber before using a Snowflake Stencil to smooch over some embossing paste.  I LOVE Washi Tape and this Kelly Purkey Triangles Design reminded me of mountains and I thought it went well ,,,,,, :-)

The snowy icy panel doesn't show up so well on the photo but I tell ya,,, it looks fab IRL ! I used some Frosted Crystal Embossing Powder for that and it really does look like ice !

Wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas :-)

 I hope you all found a lovely gift under the tree :-)
