Welcome to Winter Wonderland

Hi everybody and a huge welcome from the team here at Winter Wonderland! We're not exactly Santa's little elves but we hope to be able to do much the same job by taking some of the stress and strain out of Christmas preparations for you.

We will be going live on Sunday 31st May, and then every Sunday after that we will be setting you a new theme on which you can base your Christmas offering. Whether you decide to make a card, a scrap LO, a tag or two, the choice is entirely yours, all we ask is that you have fun and show us your take on our themes.

The whole purpose of this challenge blog is that you get to build up to the festive season at a nice and stress-free pace, and by making just one item a week, you will be thrilled to find that your Christmas stock is looking very healthy in time for the festive season.

If you want to use our challenges just to build up your Christmas Card stock, that's great, but the last Sunday of each month will be dedicated to making something other than a card. Stick with us, all will be revealed!

So we look forward to welcoming you to our weekly challenge in 3 weeks time. In the meantime, this is a great opportunity to dig out those stamps and papers that you bought last Christmas and never got round to using them - we'll sort that out for you ;o) Or maybe you are already stockpiling for Christmas 2009 - well this is your chance to show us what's already whetting your appetite!

And here's a couple of little teasers to tempt you back later - keep an eye out, there may be more to come:





See you on the 31st May - make it a date! And for one lucky person, Christmas really will come early as we'll have a tasty little something to give away! :o)
