Winter wonderland blog hop!

Sorry I have a long post today

so grab a cuppa and a biscuit and get settled!!

winter wonderland blog hop

Winter Wonderland challenge will be 2 on 30th May and we are ceLebrating by having a week Long bLog hop.  We have 11 sponsors this week, yes, that’s right 11!!!  But that’s not aLL because each member of the DT has some candy to give away too.  Both teams are pLaying aLong this week plus Janet who joins us at the end of each month so that’s another 11 prizes to be won.

We wouLd Like to have as many prize winners as possibLe so if your name is drawn for more than one prize we wiLL draw again.  That means 22 Lucky people wiLL win a prize this week.  With so many prize winners we won’t be choosing a top 3 just for this week.

ALL you have to do to join in the fun is:

  • Play aLong with this week’s easy and fun chaLLenge
  • Be a foLLower of Winter Wonderland challenge 
  • Visit each member of the DT and coLLect a Letter
  • Leave them a comment and enter their candy draw
  • Rearrange the Letters to make a two word Christmas CaroL
  • E-maiL the answer to Winter Wonderland
Of course you don’t have to join in the bLog hop if you don’t want to.  You can stiLL enter this week’s chaLLenge and be in with the chance of winning one of the 11 prizes this week but why miss out on doubLing your chance of winning

The Letter you need to collect from me (just in case you hadn’t worked it out!) is…….. “L

You shouLd have arrived at my bLog from Jane’s bLog but in case you’re a littLe Lost you can go back to the beginning here.

Our theme this week has been set by Suzi and she has chosen “bLue & white” which is a very popuLar coLour combo for Christmas cards, so should be an easy task this week.  I am using an image from one of our sponsors – Sassy Studio Designs caLLed ‘LittLe Honey’s – Winter Wendy‘

Here is my card:

WW #9 - blue & white

WW #9 - blue & white (close up)

I don’t know why but I found photographing this card very difficult!  So I apoLogise for the dodgy pics – it is a much nicer card IRL honest!  The papers are a magazine freebie and the gorgeous ribbon (which reminded me of snowbaLLs) is from the ribbon girl

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Lexi’s creations challenge – spots and/or stripes (my spotty ribbon and embossed circle)

Kaboodle challenge – distress, rip, tear or crumple (I inked all the edges of my card and the embossed circle)

Lollipop crafts challenge – bling it (my pearls)

OSAAT challenge – bling it on (pearls)

Crafty cardmakers challenge – embossing

Creative card crew challenge – anything goes

Digital Tuesday challenge – texture (my embossing)

I love promarkers challenge – pearls

Papertake challenge – pale, pretty pastels

Creative inspirations challenge – Christmas in May

Let’s craft and create challenge – dies to die for (my circle nesties)

2 sisters challenge – use a digi

Craftyhazelnut’s Christmas challenge – let’s see some scallops

Crafty sentiments challenge – special occasions (Christmas)

Digi doodle challenge – anything goes

Moving along with the times challenge – holidays (Christmas is a holiday!)

The rest of the DT have created amazing cards once again this week, so why not join the hop and then you’LL have a chance to check them aLL out! 

The next person on the hop is LYNSEY

I am aLso offering some candy of my own, which includes 2 Joanna Sheen Christmas stamps, some ribbon, buttons and any other odds and bits I can find!  (Sorry I haven’t had a chance to photograph the candy but wiLL add one soon). 

To enter my personaL candy just Leave me a comment and I wiLL randomLy draw a winner at the end of the chaLLenge.
