CHNC challenge 74: Christmas foliage

Once again you all came up trumps with your cards for challenge 73 - I loved all the blue! Such a lovely lot of entries - you girls are really rocking the Christmas cards. If there's any one reading this who hasn't yet started Christmas cards this year perhaps this is the time to think about doing so - by the end of this challenge we will already be into June!

Before I get on to today's challenge, I need to let you know the winner of challenge 73. Unfortunately, there could only be one winner and this is the result of using

Number 19: Chrissy
who shared this lovely card:

Congratulations,Chrissy! Please email me at so I can arrange for you to claim your DigiDoodle Shop $10 gift certificate.

Challenge 74

For today's challenge I'd like to see some Christmas foliage on your card - some holly, ivy, mistletoe etc

And for this week's challenge Shelly's images are generously giving a $9 gift certificate to the randomly-chosen winner 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.'

I've made two cards for this challenge using a lovely holly image from Shelly's - more info on 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 include some Christmas foliage.

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 Friday1 June.  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 2 June.

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.
