CHNC challenge 79: festive funnies

There was so much lovely inkyness on here for last week's challenge - I so enjoyed seeing the variety of creativity and techniques. I'm glad that so many of you are cracking on with getting Christmas cards done now. I hope that you'll join me once again this coming week - and, if you haven't yet started your Christmas cards, now would be a good time and I'd love to see what you create.

Before I get on to today's challenge, I need to let you know the winner of challenge 78. Unfortunately, there could only be one winner and this is the result of using

Number 47: Ali Wade
who shared this lovely card:

Congratulations, Ali! Please email me at so I can arrange for you to claim your £15 to spend on stamps at The Artistic Stamper.

Now we move on to today's challenge:

Challenge 79

For today's challenge I'm asking you to show me some 'festive funnies' - something amusing, funny - a humorous Christmas card (something to make me smile).

This week's challenge is being sponsored by Ooh la la Creations - the randomly-chosen winner will be able to select any CD rom from their range (worth £14.99) - you'll find it difficult to choose, because they are all so lovely.

For my card I've used 'Santa putting' pyramid pictures supplied by Ooh la la Creations printed from their CD rom 'Festive Funnies' with artwork by D. R. Laird, plus backing papers from the same CD and a decorated insert. You can read more about my card here on My Crafty Outlook.

I've added another 'festive funny' card on My Crafty Outlook using digital images from My Craft Studio Magic of Christmas and adding my own text - you can read more about it here.

And another one you can read about 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 make an amusing, funny, humorous Christmas card - something to make me smile.

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 6 July. 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 7 July, when I will be joined by a Guest Designer - very exciting!

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.

Please remember also to have a look at my CHNC page on facebook - if you do go there please join in by clicking 'like' so that I know that you've been there.
