Welcome to another week at Winter Wonderland - Kate here with another fabulous challenge, although I cannot take all the credit as Danielle chose the theme this week.


Last week Marianne introduced you to the new members of the DT. This week you get to see all of us together for a while. Remember Marianne last week explained that today all of the design teams are showing you our inspirational pieces together and then we will run in two teams posting alternate weeks.

Hi my name is Paula and i'm 34 and live with my lovely Husband David and beautiful cocker spaniel Dog Lucy in Preston Lancashire. Ive been crafting now for about 4years and what started with a craft kit from my local supermarket as turned into a wonderful crafty addiction which i wouldn't change for the world. I love to stamp and my favorite colouring medium is my beloved promarkers. I would like to thank the fantastic Winter Wonderland DT for giving me the opportunity to be this months Designer in the Spotlightand here is Paula's gorgeous creation
