Hello and welcome to the first challenge of 2012 at Winter Wonderland - Marianne here. We have so pleased to have retained many of our wonderful sponsors from last year and also have some fantastic new sponsors on board.
Thanks so much to those of you that joined in with last weeks challenge. We really appreciate you playing along with us. Don't forget to check back on Sunday for the winner and top 3.
Before I move on to this week's challenge I want to thank all those who applied for the DT positions. We had some difficult decisions to make and decided to appoint 4, rather 2 members and the lucky 4 are:
Bridget and Karen have joined my team and have played along with this week's challenge. Debbie and Lisa have joined Kate's team so you will see their first creations next week.
Now onto this week's challenge which is Let's Go Shopping. So let's see shops or shopping bags on your creation. Remember this doesn't have to be a Christmas card though you can of course make one if you wish as long as it follows the theme. We will start Christmas only challenges mid February. Please check out the rules on the side. Remember you can enter more than once but each entry must be a different type of craft.
We are sponsored by the first of our new sponsors this week and that is
The first week of every month Crafter's Companion will be sponsoring us with a £10 voucher. Isn't that a wonderful prize.
Here's the inspiration from the DT. We always appreciate a visit so if you click the name you can hop over and leave them a comment and also find out if they have combined their challenge with any others, which could give you some ideas.
Fabulous as always girls x
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!
