12/23/2021 - ABC Christams (Z for Zigzags) - Happy Holiday

Hi all – this might be my last card before Christmas as we are heading out of town. Today’s card is using ABC Christmas Challenge and submission to be a DT team on this blog. I thought this would  be a great way for me to create Christmas cards through out the year and share them. My style is clean and simple and easy quick card, especially for Christmas since we will need to make duplication of them. This one is using Z for Zigzags and I pulled my retired DSP for this. I used the Snowman stamp set and colored it in with Blender Pens and Watercolor Pencils. I hope you enjoyed this card and have a wonderful break!
