Winter Wonderland new challenge: White and blue and BLOG HOP!!!

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

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.
This is my candy:

You'll find some stuff to make Christmas tags : blank tags, fabric decorations made by me, some more fabric, ribbon and twine, charms, buttons and felt balls.
To enter my candy you will need to leave me a comment and enter via the link below.You don't need to become a follower, but you can do it if you like my blog.
The lucky winners will announced on Sunday June 5th at 11.00 UK time
The letter you have to collect from me is T
The next person on the hop is Sally
For my card I used this supercute Snow Trio by Stitchy Bears you can find here and the sentiment is from Sentiments4you

The image is coloured with Distress and Promarkers plus stickles. I used fabric and a glittered paper as background and I added some punched snowflakes, ribbon and a small bell
