A sketch challenge

Friday is here again and that means another challenge at Winter Wonderland. Marianne here this week hosting the challenge and I am so excited about this as I have created my first ever sketch for you. I do hope you enjoy playing with it as much as I did. There is no theme to follow apart from Christmas of course, lol!

Thank you to everyone that took part in last week's challenge. We are very pleased that so many of you are joining us in preparing for Christmas early this year. No rushing around in December to get those cards finished.

Last week's winner of 3 digi images from Delicious Doodles is No 6 so that's

Congratulations. Please e-mail me at and I will organise your prize for you.

It is getting harder and harder to choose our top 3 but we had to choose just 3 and they are




Congratulations. Please take our top three banner to proudly display on your blog.

This week we are so pleased to be sponsored by

who are providing a $15 certificate for the lucky winner to spend in their fabulous shop.

We are pleased to welcome
Tracy as our designer in the spotlight and show you her fun card she made using my sketch.

Here is what Tracy said
"I am so excited to be chosen as Designer in the Spotlight, I love to make cards and after trying just about every technique going I have come to the conclusion I am a stamper. I have lots of rubber stamps and am building a collection of digital stamps to match, there are so many fabulous artists out there. The image is from Dustin Pike, coloured with pro markers and sakura pens, the papers are a freebie from Crafts Beautiful from last year I think."

Thanks for joining us this week Tracy and please grab the designer in the spotlight banner.

If you would like to feature as our designer in the spotlight one week then please let us know. You may be a new cardmaker or a very experienced crafter, it doesn't matter which, we would love to feature you.

The DT have produced some wonderful creations to inspire you. Don't forget if you click on the name above the picture you can find out how each card has been put together and what supplies have been used. You can also find out if they have combined with any other challenges. Remember it isn't just Christmas challenges you can combine with your creation.



Now we love visiting your blogs and commenting on your gorgeous creations which do of course give us inspiration for the challenge too. Please turn off word verification as this does add time onto our visits and in some cases prevents us from leaving comments. If your blog is not in English and you have word verification switched on and do not get comments from some of the team that is because our computers won't let us comment. If you need any help finding how to do this it is in the settings, comments part of your blog. Thanks for your help with this, it is 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! Please be sure to post a link back to the Winter Wonderland blog in your blog post in order to be eligible for this weeks prize! Thursday evening (5pm GMT) is the deadline for your card to qualify for the prize!.
