CHNC challenge 464


Lovely to see so many festive entries again this week. It is evident that so many are really getting down to making their Christmas designs before it gets any nearer and panic begins to set in - so lovely to see them all.

We're looking forward to seeing your festive designs this week.

Before I tell you about this week's challenge, I need to let you know the winner of challenge 463:

Congratulations, Karen. Please email me at craftyhazelnut@gmail.com with your full name and address so I can post your Kaisercraft Vintage Believe clear stamps.

Please note that winner needs to claim the prize by 30 November (2 weeks)

Every CHNC challenge is 'anything goes as long as it's Christmas', which will, hopefully, encourage as many crafters as possible to join in with their festive creations. However, there will always be an optional theme, which this week is 'use some glitter'. I want to stress that this is purely optional.
