We Wish You a Zingy Christmas!

Oh my goodness it has been a while since I last posted anything to my blog. Thank you all for coming by for a visit, it is great to have you here.  Somehow I started out so far ahead back in October with most of my shopping already done but somehow I have fallen behind and now there are only 4 days to go.

We have a new challenge for you this week on the ABC Christmas Challenge and this week our theme is
Z for Zingy Colours

We are sponsored this week by


The good folks at Bugaboo were kind enough to provide us with some great images for the challenge this week and I have coloured this super cute Snowman Polka Scarf up in some very traditional Fuschia Pink and Lime Green. How is that for zing?

I have paired it with these great papers from MME and some Coordinations cardstock in that great lime green which I have embossed and sanded to reveal the core colour. To finish off the front of my card I dug around in my stash and came up with some sparkly ribbon and buttons that matched the colour scheme perfectly.

I hope that you will join us for our challenge. I look forward to seeing your zingy creations. Don't forget to stop by the ABC Christmas Challenge blog and see the other fun, bright creations from the rest of the DT.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
