CHNC challenge 5: Santa

I loved seeing all your bling for last week's challenge - thank you for joining in - we had 26 lovely entries all together.

Don't forget that New Year's resolution to make Christmas cards throughout the year - you will be pleased later in the year when you've built up a supply of cards ahead of the panic weeks just before Christmas.

For challenge 5 I'd like you to include Santa on your Christmas card, or whatever you call Santa - Father Christmas, Papai Noel, Saint Nicholas ...

For my card I've used the sketch for this week's Jingle Belles challenge:

I'm also entering the card for Bah! humbug 4: an oldie but a goldie, Winter wonderland: my sentiments exactly, Sparkle creations Christmas 2011 week 8: no colouring and Christmas cards all year round for January: anything goes - more details on My Crafty Outlook (my regular crafting blog) here, as well as other non-Christmas challenges for the card.

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 4 February. Please mention my blog and create a link within the post for your creation.

Remember, you can use any materials, any techniques, as long as the end result is a Christmas card - and this week I'd like to see Santa, Father Christmas, Papai Noel, Saint Nicholas ...

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 5 February - this will be sponsored by Shelly's Images - so there will be a prize for one lucky randomly drawn creation.

If by any chance Linky 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 new challenge blog - thank you.

I look forward to seeing your creations.

This linky list is now closed.
