So on to this fortnights Challenge!!
How have we got to W already?
Ooooo your gonna love this challenge from Annie
I am posting it for Annie as she has been a little poorly
but thankfully is well on the mend now.

OK so on to the challenge!
Annie has chosen Winter wonderland with the optional extra of a white theme
She has seen lots of lovely Christmas cards featuring large expanses of white
and thought this would be a great extra for her challenge...
You can add colour to your image of course or we wouldn't be able to see it! tehhehe!
You can add colour to the background matt layer or even a little edge distressing, but we want to see lots of White Winter Wonderlands!

We are sponsored for this challenge by one of our regular sponsors:


And the prize is a $15 Gift Certificate...they'll pay the shipping too!
Here are the inspirational Winter wonderland projects for the FANTASTIC design team!
