ABC Christmas Challenge - Z is for...

I have another card for our current ABC Christmas Challenge today...where the theme is:

'Z is for Zoo Animals'

We have two wonderful sponsors for this challenge:

The prize from Bugaboo Stamps is 7 free digis!

Prize - a $10 voucher for the Sweet Stamps store

And...that's not all...our lovely DT buddy Miria is leaving us after this challenge, so we're on the hunt for some new DT we're having a DT call on this challenge too!

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 challenge, and add 'DT' after your name in the linky, and you could be getting ahead for next Christmas with the most friendly DT in blogland :0) 

I've gone for penguins this time, and have used a couple of stamps from the 'Special Delivery - Penguins' set by Helz Cuppleditch...and matching paper and twine from the same collection. The snowflakes were cut using Marianne Creatables dies, and layered up with a button from my stash in the centre.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge.
