CHNC challenge 192: people matter


Please click here for a chance to win a 2-day ticket for the Big Stamp & Scrapbooking Show at Alexandra Palace 20-21 September

It was lovely to see all the different people that featured on your designs for last week's challenge - so much creativity and inspiration.

Please note that I publish the prize winners here and on our facebook page, but don't notify winners individually - it is up to you all to check to see if you have won and email me as requested. There are one or two unclaimed prizes, so it's worth having a look back to see if you were a winner.

Now on to:
Challenge 192

For today's challenge I'd like you to show people on your Christmas creations - at least one person (can be child or adult, but must be human!)

This week we have four sponsors, so lots of opportunities to win something.

The first sponsor  is The Artistic Stamper who will be giving £15.00 worth of stamps (the winner's choice) to the randomly selected winner.

:

The second sponsor is MilkCoffee:


'MilkCoffee consists of two artists from Indonesia who have been best friends since childhood. Both women love to draw cute illustration. They work in Illustration, Architecture, and Design fields. They offer cute and good quality digital stamps, perfect to make papercraft, card, scrapbook, or anything you want to do with printed digital images :)'

You can find MilkCoffee images at their Etsy Shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/MilkCoffee.

The randomly chosen winner will receive 3 images of their choice.

The third sponsor is The stamping boutique:


'Thank you so much for having us as your sponsor. We at TSB are very proud to offer original digital images and artwork to you. Thank you for giving us a few minutes of your valuable time to look over the store at http://http://thestampingboutique.com/ Good luck in the challenge.'

Thanks so much!   Tracey Malnofski


The winner will receive 3 images of their choice. PLEASE NOTE that if the winner used a Stamping Boutique image they will receive 4 images of their choice.

The fourth sponsor is Melonheadz:


'Melonheadz Illustrations are designed and illustrated by talented artist Nikki Casassa. Nikki's artwork is fresh and fun and can be used for a wide variety of projects. Check out her Etsy Shop at etsy.com/shop/melonheadzdoodles to see the vast selection of digital images she has for sale.'

The randomly chosen winner will be able to choose one bundle from etsy.com/shop/melonheadzdoodles.

Please visit the websites of these generous sponsors and support them -
you will be spoiled for choice!

For my two cards I've used card, toppers and sentiments from a Hunkydory Christmas choir set, part of their Traditional Christmas range. The background card was one piece, but I thought it was too good to fold in half, so I added each half to A5 card blanks. The music strip down the side of each card was offcut from the waste around the die cut toppers etc. More details about the cards here on My Crafty Outlook:


Now it's over to you. As usual, you can use any materials, any techniques - and this week I'd like to see people on your Christmas creations - at least one person (can be child or adult, but must be human!)

Update: Melissa asked: Was wondering if a Santa Claus or Snowman counts as a person? Can the person be a mythological person as in not a real person but is human looking?

My answer: That's fine as long as the person looks human!

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 5 September Friday . Please include a link to this blogpost within the post for your creation.

You can enter as many times as you wish  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 Saturday 6 September when there will be three chances to win a prize, thanks to generous sponsors.

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. Also it would be great if you would consider becoming a follower - lovely to welcome recent new followers and 'likers' on facebook.

Please also consider going to CHNC Facebook page and clicking 'like' if you haven't done so already and encourage your friends to do the same. I always show at least one of my cards for the next challenge in advance and it's a good place to catch up with any news, winners etc.

Don't forget

Don't forget that 'anything goes' monthly challenges are on my Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra blog - you can share any Christmas card you make throughout the whole month, including those that you link here - there is no restriction on the number of entries you can make throughout the month - the link for CHNC challenge extra for August is here. Of course, the September challenge will be starting midway this week.

At the beginning of the year I started up a new challenge called Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge - anything goes as long as you cover your card with patterned paper - a randomly chosen prize winner every month. Please click on the link to find out more. If you have used patterned paper to cover your card blank for your Christmas card, why not enter it there too. And please be aware that the new Patterned Paper Challenge is not restricted to Christmas - it is for any occasions.

Thank you for your support
I look forward to seeing your entries
