CHNC challenge 542

Thank you so much for all of your wonderful festive designs shared last week.

We look forward to seeing all of your lovely festive crafting this week. It's a really good idea to try and make at least one card a week ... no panic then when it gets towards the end of the year.

Before I tell you about this week's challenge, I need to let you know the winner of challenge 541:

Please note that my email to send to is craftyhazelnut@gmail.com

Number 24: Diny, with this lovely card:



Congratulations, Diny. Please email me at craftyhazelnut@gmail.com with your full name and address so I can post your Papermania Pocket full of posies 4 x 4 clear stamp.

Please note that winner needs to claim the prize by 29 May (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 'candy canes'. I want to stress that this is purely optional.
