CHNC challenge 6: use a digi

Thank you so much to all of you who played along with challenge 5 - there were some lovely versions of Santa. There weren't quite so many entries - I hope this doesn't mean that the New Year's resolutions are being abandoned. You know it makes sense to make Christmas cards throughout the year and take the strain off those last few weeks before the big day when panic begins to set in!

There's a great incentive for getting back on track this week: I'm delighted to tell you that CHNC Challenge 6 is being sponsored by Shelly's Images - the winner, chosen at random, will be able to choose 3 images 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.'

So, for challenge 6, please use a digi - it can be an image, a paper, a combination of both ... whatever you choose - and it can be any digi - there are lots of freebies available on the net, as well as plenty to purchase - and, of course, I'd be delighted to see any images that you might have from Shelly, but it isn't a requirement of the challenge. Of course, you must make a Christmas card.

For my card I used the 'all wrapped up' Shelly Image (the one I used for my card for challenge 1). You can find details and see the other challenges I linked to on my regular crafting blog, 'My Crafty Outlook' here.

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 11 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 a digi being used.

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 12 February.

Having just got used to using Linky Tools, unfortunately, they are now charging (which is perfectly understandable, but I want to avoid extra cost if possible), so I'm switching to using a different Linky. 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 new challenge blog - thank you.

I look forward to seeing your creations.
