Come Celebrate with the Winter Wonderland

Oh I am so excited, have waited so long to do this post. Grab a coffee you might need one, but oh it will be so worth it
Winter Wonderland 
will be 2 on 30 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
  • · 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 
It would be great if you could add our blog hop image to your side bar and link it to us, to let every one else know about the fun.


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.

Now if you arrived here from Suzi's blog your on the right track, however if you have started in the middle please pop back to the main challenge blog to start at the very beginning.

To enter my candy you will need to leave me a comment and enter via the link below. The letter you need to collect from me is  H

The next person on the hop is Danielle but before you head off, let me tell you about this weeks challenge and show you my creation - I would like to thank my sponsor for this hop

This is one of the new Christmas images from the Dragon's Lair called "Snowfight" I love it and I have added that soft washed glass stuff for all that icy sparkle.

Oh wow, I love how glittery your card is. I have seen cards in blogland using that glass stuff and it does really seem to sparkle a lot and seems to have more texture.

Thanks for the opportunity to win your prizes, I love yellows :)
