Izzys Aussie Christmas

Two fun images used for a couple of projects
 made before Christmas for neighbouring kids.
Both coloured with copics and lots
of stickles added.

The image used for the challenge is
Spread a smile of Joy
I also couldn't resist posting this image too...
Using the most cute Aussie themed image
temptation made me buy it, called
Izzys Aussie Christmas
so typical of our

Di digi designs ..Winter Holidays

Update on the post below.
We are great buddies with our neighbour so the card
was in good humour & we all enjoyed
 a glass of wine each..
thanks for the comments.

Hello! !
Today 31st is New Year's Eve in Japan.
In the year end, we say “Yoi otoshi wo” to each other wishing for the coming
year to be pleasurable.
The New Year season is the most significant season for the Japanese.
All the Christmas décor is switched to the New Year’s in a blink.
Major New Year icons are the pine tree, bamboo, plums and so on. All of them are symbols of good fortune and longevity.

Very pretty project for the neighbourkids. Thanks for your answer. For me it seems weird to have New Years Eve in the heat....My parents were years ago in South Africa and it was 22 degrees Celsius at midnight!
Have a nice time. You will have 2019 earlier than we will have....

Hi Annie, Here I'm again.
You asked about oliebollen. Of you are interested, it's a tasty treat almost everybody in the Netherlands eat at New Years Eve. And n many houses people are baking it by themselves.

Carol L said...
