CHNC challenge 92: all wrapped up

It was lovely to see such a variety of Christmas cards depicting the nativity - thank you for all your entries for last week's challenge.

Before I get on to today's challenge, I need to let you know the winner of challenge 91. Unfortunately, there could only be one winner and this is the result of using

Number 5: Di
who shared this lovely card (in fact, Di made six of them):

Congratulations, Di. Please email me at so I can arrange for you to claim your 3 single digi images from The Crafty Pad.

Challenge 92

The theme for today's challenge is 'all wrapped up' -
it's up to you how you interpret that!

And for this week's challenge Shelly's images are generously giving a $9 gift certificate to the randomly-chosen winner from the lovely range you will find here.

A little bit about Shelly's Images:

'Our images are hand drawn by Shelly. We have a super talented family, so every now and then they jump in with an image. Any image that is not drawn by Shelly will have the artists name in the product description.

Digital stamps are perfect for card making, scrap booking, and crafting. The images are easy to re-size and perfect because they don't require any storage space and there is no messy ink and clean up.  If you have any questions about using digital stamps please be sure to send us an email.

Shelly's images are designed with the crafter in mind. She has been a paper crafter for more than 15 years.'

The first card I'm sharing this week is a very simple one that I made when I was away in Eastbourne, having taken a Kanban kit with me - more details on My Crafty Outlook here. The presents are 'all wrapped up', so is Santa and so is the tree!

Now it's over to you. As usual, you can use any materials, any techniques, as long as the end result is a Christmas card - and this week please make a card that fits the theme 'all wrapped up', however you want to interpret that - it could be wrapping up against the winter cold, presents all wrapped up ... I'll leave it to you to come up with ideas.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with for this challenge - please add a link to your blog post (not your blog, but the actual post where your card can be found) by 22:00 UK time Friday 5 October.  Please mention my blog and create a link within the post for your creation.

You can enter as many times as you wish (a good way to build up your stock of Christmas cards) and also link to any other challenges that allow you to do so, but new work only, please.

A new challenge will be set on 6 October.

Please add your link to inlinkz. If by any chance it disappears, please leave a comment with the link to your blog post and I will make sure it is added.

If you haven't done so already, please become a follower and grab my bright pink button to post on your sidebar and help continue to spread the word about this challenge blog - thank you.
