Y and Z are for?

Hello everyone, its's Carol here, welcoming you to the final ABC Challenge of the year. Thank you for playing along last month and you can check if you are a winner in the post below this one. We had 188 entries and we really enjoyed looking through all your lovely creations.

It's Helen here, interrupting this post with a couple of announcements.

Firstly, sadly our lovely DT buddy Lisa is leaving us. On behalf of all of the ABC Christmas Challenge family, I'd like to say a great BIG thank you to Lisa for all of her wonderful cards and inspiration, and also for her friendship - we shall all miss you!

 Secondly, and on a happier note, I can tell you the people that we have chosen from the entries to last month's DT Call to join our little team. Thank you to everyone that applied - we all really enjoyed having a nose around your fabulous blogs! Unfortunately, we can't take you all, but we would love to invite the following people to come aboard:
