CHNC challenge 68: Let's have a sing song

I hope you all had a good Easter - I don't know what it was like where you are, but Easter Monday was a wash out here - a typical Bank Holiday! Anyway, it was good weather for crafting - lol! Lots of lovely entries last week with various interpretations of 'white Christmas' - I so enjoyed visiting your blogs and admiring them.

Before I get on to today's challenge, I need to let you know the winner of challenge 67. Unfortunately, there could only be one winner and this is the result of using

Number 11: Coldwaters2 (Lorraine)
who shared this lovely card:

Congratulations, ! Please email me at so I can arrange for you to claim your $10 voucher from Di's Digi Downloads.

Before announcing today's challenge, I'd like to wish you all a Happy Easter weekend.

Now we move on to today's challenge:

Challenge 68

For today's challenge I'm asking you to make a card based on a favourite Christmas song or carol - or you can incorporate music into your Christmas card - you can choose.

Bugaboo Stamps are proud to sponsor this challenge - they are offering $21 of digital stamps to the randomly selected winner.

Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay
As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing!  From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.  Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week! 
 If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps   at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT   for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug 

I'm delighted that I have two guest designers from Bugaboo joining me with their lovely cards:

Today I'm joined by two members of the Bugaboo team with their lovely cards - please visit their blogs and leave them comments. Thank you, Amy and  for joining me for this challenge.


Yvonne (Scrappy)
My card is for the song 'Jingle Bells' and uses 'snowman bells' and 'winter circle sentiments - jingle bells', both kindly supplied by Bugaboo Stamps   - you can read more about my card on my regular crafting blog My Crafty Outlook here

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 please base your card on a favourite song or carol - or include music in some way, the choice is yours.

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 20 April.  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 21 April.

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.

  1. Great samples! We're celebrating Greek Easter this weekend, so I'm hoping my Monday will be a crafty one.

  2. Such a fun challenge Hazel - great cards shown too! Di xx

  3. Gorgeous DT cards. Thank you for the Challenge.

  4. Congrats on your feature at Craft Corners best of the web. Love your Christmas cards! ~Diane

  5. I've asked this qustion on Amy's blog 2 weeks ago but had no response - Please can anyone tell me where I can buy the stamp with the cartoon girl and christmas tree? (deck the halls card above)

    any clues as to the name or maker would be very much appreciated. Thanks Roz

  6. I don't know whether you will see this Rosie, but I have no way of getting in touch with you because when I click on your name it says your profile is unavailable - I suspect that's why you've never heard back from Amy either. The stamp is a digital image by Bugaboo Stamps. HTH. x

  7. Thanks so much for that Hazel. I've already looked through the bugaboo site but will have another trawl through. I presumed that Amy might answer in the comments as you have done. Thanks again.

  8. Hazel, I found the stamp and just purchased it. :) don't know how I missed it when I looked before! Thanks for your help


Thank you for your kind comments
