CHNC challenge 100: for someone special

There were so many entries again last week - so lovely to see so many joining in. I hope panic is beginning to set in as Christmas is getting closer, but what better way to get prepared than joining in challenges that encourage you. I hope today's new challenge will help you to make cards for the special people in your life rather than leave them to the last minute.

Please remember 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. During the week you'll find updates and hints of the next challenge - please feel free to chat there - I know that some of you do already - thank you. It's great that we now have more than 100 likes - let's see if we can spread the net wider before the end of the year.

Before I get on to today's challenge, I need to let you know the winner of challenge 99. Unfortunately, there could only be one winner and this is the result of using

Number 29: Norma
who shared this lovely card:

Congratulations, Norma! Please email me at so I can arrange for you to receive your five digital stamps from Robyn'sFetish Digital Stamps And More.
