Z for Zoo Animal

It's Helen here hijacking Dorte's post to say a sad goodbye to our lovely DT buddy Miria who is moving on to pastures new after this challenge - thanks so much for all of your wonderful DT projects and hard work - we've loved having you on our team and wish you all the best!

So, as we have recently lost Kelly as well, we're on the look out for some new DT playmates...and will be holding a DT call on this challenge!

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)

Now back to Dorte with all of the challenge info!
