We just wanted to make you all aware of a date for your diaries. Put the 31st of January in your diary as here at Winter Wonderland we are having our very first BLOG HOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There will be prizes from some new sponsers we are introducing to our blog and some blog candy available at our Design Teams blogs too. It is our way of saying thank you for participating in our challenge and also to welcome new challengers to the Wonderful Winter Wonderland challenge.

Okay onto this weeks challenge. We have a sketch from our Design team member Pascale. Please feel free to rotate the sketch and resize elements.

Week 34 - Colour Combo Time

Hi everyone, we hope you have all had a great week, Thank you for joining us last week with your fabulous creations! We do love visiting to see everybodys take on the sketches/themes.

We have some very exciting news to share, but first we would like to say a huge Thank You to all those wonderful and talented ladies who expressed their interest in joining our team. There were so many gorgeous blogs to look through, and we were overwhelmed with the amount of interest we received via the blog and personal emails. Regrettably though not everyone can get picked and we all agonised over how best to make our selection so we set up an admin poll and the two ladies who got the most number of votes were Sue and Danielle, and we are really pleased to say that they have accepted the offer to join us. Please would you join us in welcoming them to our team.

We do however want to stress that we really, really wanted every one of those ladies who applied to be part of our team because the quality and variety of talent out there is immense, and we would be honoured if those ladies would be willing to be our Guests for future themes. Each of you will be contacted individually over the coming weeks and we would love it if you would join us on the 'front page' showcasing your projects.

So, back to this week's theme and we are going with a Colour Combo of "Burgundy and Teal" - everyone will interpret these two colours slightly differently feel free to use any variation of these two as you wish. We look forward to seeing your Christmas creations!!!
Here is some inspiration from our amazing DT:

So now it is over to you to create your christmas cards using our unusual but very yummy colour combination. We can't wait to see what you all create.

Just leave the link to your card in Mr Linky.

Love from

Week 33 - Sketch

Good Morning to you all. We hope that you were not snowed in during the week and you are all safe and sound after the snowstorms we have experienced here in the UK. We are glad you all enjoyed the colour challenge we set you last week. We loved admiring all your scrummy projects.

This week our challenge is a marvellous sketch by our very own lovely Anne . Feel free to flip the sketch and to resize elements of the sketch.

Remember that our themes for the first few weeks of this year will remain open. You do not have to create a Christmas project, you can create anything you like.

Thank you all for the great response to the DT call we are currently visiting all your blogs and drafting up a shortlist of contenders. It is so lovely to know that you are all so keen to join our little family here at Winter Wonderland.

Here are some gorgeous samples from the fabulous DT.

Now it's your turn. We can't wait to see what you create for us this week!

Love from
