CHNC challenge 8: the white stuff

It's hard to believe that we are already on challenge 8 - where has this year gone already? Well done to everyone for keeping up with the resolution to make Christmas cards throughout the year - and if there is anyone reading this who hasn't yet started on Christmas cards this year, it's never too early or too late! The more you get done now, the easier it is later in the year.

Thank you to all those who 'featured a creature' for challenge 7 - so many charming cards and lots of different creatures.

On to challenge 8, which is 'the white stuff'. I'm hoping that we won't get any more snow now, but you never know. The only place I like to see it is on Christmas cards.

You can interpret 'the white stuff' however you please. You may wish to make a card with a snowy scene, or snow people, or snowflakes ... or perhaps you'd like to make a card that is mainly white - there have been quite a lot of these around on the blogs this year and all white can look very attractive, especially if some embossing and stickles or something similar is used.

Here is my card:

For details about it please visit my regular crafting blog 'My Crafty Outlook' here. I'm entering this into a few other Christmas challenges, so you might like to do the same with your card. I like to support other blogs that are promoting making Christmas cards.

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 25 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 you to make something with 'the white stuff'.

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 26 February.

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 new challenge blog - thank you.

I look forward to seeing your creations.

I am celebrating with some candy on my regular crafting blog - you can read about it and sign up here
