CHNC challenge 60: create a scene

The weeks are going by with their usual speed and we're already heading towards the end of February. Once again this past week there have been lovely entries for my challenge. Some of you must be building up a nice collection of Christmas cards already. If you haven't started yours, it's never too early to do so and perhaps you'll be tempted to join in this week's challenge.

Before I get on to today's challenge, I need to let you know the winner of challenge 59. Unfortunately, there could only be one winner and this is the result of using

Number 20: Lisbeth K
who shared this beautiful card:

Congratulations, Lisbeth! Please email me at so I can arrange for you to claim your Bugaboo digital stamps.

Now we move on to today's challenge:

Challenge 60

For today's challenge I'm asking you to create a scene on your Christmas card.

You can create a snowy scene, an indoor scene ... anything within reason, as the main function of this challenge is to help you to get an early start with making your Christmas cards.

And for this week's challenge Digi Doodle Shop are once again generously giving a $10 gift certificate to the randomly-chosen winner.

DigiDoodle Shop is the results of a mother and daughter’s love for the arts and crafts.  It was started a little over 3 years ago with a little more than 100 stamps, and has since then grown to almost 500 stamps.  Joy (the mother of this team) designs realistic images, while Judy (aka/daughter) loves the “fun side of life”, and create images with a cartoon flair.  Having these two complimenting styles have enabled
Digi Doodle Shop to offer a wide variety of stamps.

It is a real honor and pleasure to sponsor this challenge, and we look forward to seeing all the amazing creations.  We thank the design team for their incredible creations, and wish all the participants the very best of luck in this challenge.

Thank you so much for having us, and again the very best of luck to all of you.
Judy and Joy

For my card I've used the digital image 'Christmas church' which was kindly given to me by Digi Doodle Shop, just one of the Christmas images that they stock. You can see the card on my regular crafting blog My Crafty Outlook here and see the other challenges I entered with it.

Now it's over to you. As usual, you can use any materials, any techniques, as long as the end result is a Christmas card - and this week create a scene.

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 24 February. 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 25 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 challenge blog - thank you.
