CHNC challenge 50: traditional Christmas

Well, another week has passed and we're one more big step nearer to Christmas Day ... only just over two weeks when this challenge goes live and probably less than that when you are reading this.

Thank you so much for all the entries for last week's challenge - as usual, I so enjoyed looking at them all, so creative and inspirational.

So now it's time to announce the winner of the prize for last week, randomly drawn - unfortunately, there can only be one winner and has picked:

Number 38: Anne

with this lovely card:

Please email me and I'll arrange for you to choose your digis from our
generous sponsor, StretchNBubbles.

Now on to this week's challenge:

Challenge 50

For this week my challenge is traditional Christmas, whatever that means to you. You might want to concentrate on traditional colours or include 'traditional' items on your card - holly, Christmas tree, snowmen, snowflakes, festive food ... whatever you think of as traditional. The main thing is to get on and make those remaining Christmas cards. I so enjoy visiting your blogs and seeing what you have created, so please keep the cards coming. Perhaps we'll have another week of a bumper number of entries.

If by any chance (and I wish I could say this) you've finished all your Christmas cards for this year, why not make one for this challenge that can start you off for next year. I'm sure you've still got some Christmas papers, embellishments, stamps etc around you.

Here is my card - you can read more about it and the challenges I've entered on my regular crafting blog My Crafty Outlook here:

I've added some more traditional cards here on my regular blog.

As usual, you can use any materials, any techniques, as long as the end result is a Christmas card - and this week please remember to make a traditional Christmas 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 16 December. Please mention my blog and create a link within the post for your creation.

You can enter as many times as you wish (a good way to build up your stock of Christmas cards) 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 17 December.

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.
