A Victorian Christmas - Distressing optional

Hello there and I hope you are all having a great weekend.

Last week we set you the challenge of a sketch and those of you that entered made some wonderful cards so thank you so much for taking part.

My name is Pascale and here at Winter Wonderland it is my turn to set you a challenge. The challenge I have chosen is " A Victorian Christmas " with the optional theme of distressing.

You are welcome to interpret the theme in which ever way you wish. Perhaps you could recyle an old christmas card, use a victorian image, distress a modern image to make it look Victorian.

Most importantly have fun and get some of your christmas cards made without any last minute stress.

This week we are sponsored by Regina at the Cutting Cafe who is so kindly sponsoring us with three of her digital files as a prize.

As you know we also made a DT call. Before we decided on a DT call we already asked the very lovely Marianne from Marianne's Craftroom to join our DT so please pop over to Marianne's blog and give her a big welcome.

So there are three places left to fill. We want to thank all the people that put their names forward for the DT call. We would take you all if we could. The lucky winners of a DT positions are these three very lovely ladies

The top three winners picked by myself as I set you the challenge of the sketch.It was mighty hard to pick a top three as you all came up with great cards. The winners are

Please grab our top three winners badge and link it to our blog in your sidebar.

Here is some fabulous inspiration from the Design Team. I think you will agree they are rather stunning this week. We look forward to visiting you all and seeing your wonderful creations. Don't forget that we are still going to be introducing our Designer in the spotlight in a few weeks time and also we are having a regular top three cards slot.

Week 41 - New Beginnings and a Sketch

Hi there everyone! Well Spring has definitely Sprung here in the UK - we have had some gorgeous sunny days.

When I think of the Spring I think of New Beginnings and here at Winter Wonderland that is just what has been happening.

We have had to say goodbye to some of our friends who have New Beginnings, commitments and ventures to focus on. They are three very special people who will always be treasured here at Winter Wonderland.

Joey is leaving us due to new projects and family commitments.
Lesley is leaving us due to work and family commitments.
Teri S is leaving us to concentrate on her Digital Stamp Design business 'Delicious Doodles' - Although she has kindly agreed to remain a regular sponsor.

We are wishing all three every success in the future and will miss them so much but we all evolve and move onto new projects so we fully understand their reasons for leaving.

Some more new beginnings at Winter Wonderland we are going to be having a 'Designer in the Spotlight' slot every month which will be for two people. So look out for some wonderful Guest designers here at Winter Wonderland.

Also from this week onwards we will feature our top three cards on the blog and those winners will be able to proudly display our Top Three banner on their blogs.

Finally we have a number of vacancies to fill on the DT so we are doing a DT call. If you are interested please make a card for this challenge and add DT to the your name in Mr Linky. We will contact the winners in the next week and announce the names next Sunday.

The lucky winner of Teri's Stampin' Up! Limited Edition Stamp set is .....

LINDA of Blue Summer House Design

***** CONGRATULATIONS!!! *****

Linda, please leave a message on Teri's post HERE and then EMAIL her your details and the name of the stamp set that you would like to receive.

This week we have a sketch for you to follow. From next week the challenges will have a christmas theme and some will have optional sketches or themes for you to use on your cards too.

Here is some inspiration from the Fabulous Design team to get your creative juices flowing. We look forward to seeing your creations.
