A Very Special "My Sentiments Exactly" with the full New Design Team

Welcome to another week at Winter Wonderland - Kate here with another fabulous challenge, although I cannot take all the credit as Danielle chose the theme this week.

Last week Marianne introduced you to the new members of the DT. This week you get to see all of us together for a while. Remember Marianne last week explained that today all of the design teams are showing you our inspirational pieces together and then we will run in two teams posting alternate weeks.

Also you will notice that the random winner and the top three are not on this post, these from now on will be posted on Sunday, so don't forget to pop back.

Today I also get to introduce you to our Designer In the Spotlight, Paula from Pollys Card Heaven

Here is a little bit about her

Hi my name is Paula and i'm 34 and live with my lovely Husband David and beautiful cocker spaniel Dog Lucy in Preston Lancashire. Ive been crafting now for about 4years and what started with a craft kit from my local supermarket as turned into a wonderful crafty addiction which i wouldn't change for the world. I love to stamp and my favorite colouring medium is my beloved promarkers. I would like to thank the fantastic Winter Wonderland DT for giving me the opportunity to be this months Designer in the Spotlightand here is Paula's gorgeous creation

This week we would like to introduce you to one of our many new sponsors for 2011, just perfect for this weeks challenge theme.

Lynne is very kindly offering our winner

Lynne was very kind to provide the design team with some of her fabulous sentiments, the beauty of them is you can pr int them any size you want.

So onto the challenge, this week's theme is

My Sentiments Exactly

(use a sentiment as your focal point on your card or creation)Don't forget our challenges until mid February can be Christmas or Non Christmas related

The first set of inspiration today comes from Marianne's team who will be showing you their lovely creations next week also.

Here is there gorgeous work
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 their challenge with any others, which could give you some ideas.

The second set of inspiration today comes from Kate's team who will be showing you their lovely creations on the 11th February

For those of you who are wondering where Danielle is, she has not left us she is taking a short break and will return to us in the Spring

Now we could not complete the full team without adding our special design team member, who will continue to join both teams if they fall on the last challenge of the month
