Across the Miles

Hello friends!

Welcome back to a new challenge here at Winter Wonderland ... Danielle here hosting this week!

It's great to see so many of you joining us for our challenges as we approach Christmas - there were over 90 participants last week!  Fantastic number ... let's see if we can do the same again for this week!

This weeks challenge is 'Across the Miles'.  That's right ... we want cards that will be especially for your loved ones who live abroad.  Please be sure to show on your card with your sentiment that this card is going across the miles.  Any cards that do not follow the challenge rules will unfortunately not be eligible for the prize or Top 3.

We are sponsored by


who are very generously giving the winner a $15 Gift Certificate

We have joining us this week as the Designer in the Spotlight, Helen from Helen's Stamping Corner with this gorgeous creation

Here is a little about Helen

I've been a card maker for many years and also enjoy making ATCs.  My favourite technique is stamping and I love using Promarkers as well as pretty papers.  I'm a Design Team member for Little Claire Designs and also work for them part time.  As well as making sample cards for them, I've just started teaching classes which I'm really enjoying.  My style ranges from cute to vintage and I especially like character and flower stamps.

Here is this weeks DT inspiration for you!  Just click on the name if you want to hop on over to the individual blogs where you can leave some love and also check out if they have combined their card with any other challenges.

Great work girls - what wonderful inspiration!

Now we love visiting your blogs and commenting on your gorgeous creations which do of course give us inspiration for the challenge too. It would be a great help if you could turn off word verification as this does add time onto our visits and in some cases prevents us leaving comments.If you need any help finding this it’s in the settings, comments part of your blog. Thanks for your help with this it’s much appreciated.

We all hope you are able to join us in our challenge this week. We look forward to visiting your blogs and seeing your gorgeous creations! Please be sure to post a link back to the Winter Wonderland blog in your blog post in order to be eligible for this weeks prize! Thursday evening () is the deadline for your card to qualify for the prizes!.

So all that's left is for you to get creative and leave your entry here with the blue frog so we can come and find you asap.  Have fun!

Danielle and the WW Girls xx
