Can you believe that this week sees the start of CHNC challenge 99 -it will soon be two years since I started this blog - thank you so much for all your contributions - without your entries the blog would cease to exist. And what a lot of super creations there were for last week's challenge - I so enjoyed looking at them all.
Please don't forget that I have now launched Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra blog - until 30 November there is a chance to win some Christmas blog candy - please go over there, become a follower, give it a mention on your blog and join the linky for a chance to win the candy. From 1 January 2013 there will be monthly 'anything goes' challenges (Christmas, of course) - an opportunity to share all of your Christmas cards that you make through the year, with a chance to win some Bugaboo stamps as there will be a randomly-chosen winner at the end of every month.
Weekly challenges here will, of course, continue in the new year as usual.
Please remember also to visit my CHNC page on facebook - if you do go there please join in by clicking 'like' so that I know that you've been there. During the week you'll find updates and hints of the next challenge - please feel free to chat there - I know that some of you do already. Thanks for new 'likes' - nearly 100 now!
Before I get on to today's challenge, I need to let you know the winner of challenge 98. Unfortunately, there could only be one winner and this is the result of using random.org:
For my card I used the 'gilded Christmas dove' image kindly supplied by the sponsor, Robyn'sFetish Digital Stamps And More. You can read more about my card here on My Crafty Outlook - apart from the image, everything else used for the card is at least six months old (in fact, most of it is a lot older than that).
And here's another card using something much more than six months old - the glittery silver Craftime reindeer - you can read more about the card and see the sketch that I used here:
