Colour Combo at Winterwonderland, and some Great News

Well this is a late post and no mistaking, for that I am sorry, still having a wee problem with my hand, but it is getting better, just taking longer to complete things, especially the typing....


This week at Winterwonderland, we have 2 New DT girls joining our team, the fabulous Sue and Danielle, who applied for our earlier call for new DT's and WOW what a response we got girls, thank you for that, we honestly expected maybe 2 or 3, it made for a very difficult job for us girls to choose, how can we, so, we had an inhouse vote....for the ladies who applied and were unsuccessful, I hope that very soon, you get a DT post somewhere, and maybe a Guest Post at Winterwonderland, will be offered, later in the year.....everyone was very talented and we were very stressed choosing believe me.....

I would like to say thank you also for the great response to our Sketch challenge last week, there was some fabulous work out there and I love visiting each and every one off you, lovely friends...

So onto this week, Teal and Burgundy is what we want on your projects, I pondered over that this week, as Teal and Burgundy come in many disguises in the craft world, but I finally settled for my favourite Anya image, coloured her with promarkers, used some papermania papers and leftover bits and pieces from my scrap box..I had a wee trip out to Hobbycrafts, yesterday and bought some embellishments, Babies Breath, in Teal and Burgundy, and some glitzy stars...hope you like it girls.....pop over and checkout the DT projects as per usual they are awesome, and also pop over and give Sue and Danielle your support, welcome them into the fold.....we are looking forward to seeing their projects and hope you do to...

I will be back with another card that I have made for a challenge forum that the fantastically talented and friendly  Stef has set up in America, and I will be giving you the link to this fantastic colour challenge.....so pop back later, I am going to give my hand a rest from typing, and go and do some more work in the shed.....much love Avril xxxx

This is such a beautiful card Avril. I don't know what has happened but I'm not getting a posting on my dashboard when you've been blogging and I am a follower - Oh the workings of Mr Blogger lol. Sorry if I keep missing stuff.

Lovely card. I had not hear of putting teal and burgundy together, mostly teal and red, but it is a stunning color combo.
