CHNC challenge 170: Going round in circles

It turned a lot colder here during this past week, so 'all wrapped up' was certainly the way to go! Thanks for another week of lovely entries - it's so good to share such a lot of festive fun and creativity.

Please note that I publish the prize winners here and on our facebook page, but don't notify winners individually - it is up to you all to check to see if you have won and email me as requested. There are one or two unclaimed prizes, so it's worth having a look back to see if you were a winner.

Before I get on to today's challenge, I need to let you know the winners of challenge 169. There were, of course, three opportunities to win a prize last week.

The first winner: 

Number 13: Sam/Whisper, who shared this lovely card:

Congratulations, Sam. Please email me at with your full name and address so I can arrange for you to receive your two sets of stamps donated by Cupid clear stamps.

The second winner:

Number 1: Margaret A (Granmargaret),who shared this lovely card:

Congratulations, Margaret. Please email me at so I can arrange for you to receive your 3 digital stamps  from the Crafts 4 eternity collection.

The third winner:

Number 15: Kanda, who shared this lovely card:

Congratulations, Kanda. Please email me at so I can arrange for you to receive your three digis from Crafty Sentiments.

Now on to:
Challenge 170

For today's challenge I'd like to see circles - any circles, large or small, including round brads, buttons ... anything round

The first sponsor  is The Artistic Stamper who will be giving £15.00 worth of stamps (the winner's choice) to the randomly selected winner.


The second sponsor is MilkCoffee:

'MilkCoffee consists of two artists from Indonesia who have been best friends since childhood. Both women love to draw cute illustration. They work in Illustration, Architecture, and Design fields. They offer cute and good quality digital stamps, perfect to make papercraft, card, scrapbook, or anything you want to do with printed digital images :)'

You can find MilkCoffee images at their Etsy Shop

The randomly chosen winner will receive 3 images of their choice.

The third sponsor is Stamping all day who are offering three free downloads from to the randomly chosen winner.

Please visit the websites of these generous sponsors and support them -
you will be spoiled for choice!

For my card I used an offcut of Bo Bunny paper, a Hunkydory circular topper, a couple of sentiment circles and soome 'all is bright' My Mind's Eye buttons - more info on My Crafty Outlook here:

Now it's over to you. As usual, you can use any materials, any techniques - and this week I'd like to see circles - any circles, large or small, including round brads, buttons ... anything round.

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 4 April. Please include a link to this blogpost within the post for your creation.

You can enter as many times as you wish  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 Saturday 5 April when there will once again be three chances to win a prize, thanks to generous sponsors.

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. As we put the clocks forward tomorrow morning at 02:00 am in the UK I'm never sure how to set linky for the finishing time, so I've set it as normal, but if I need to adjust it next Friday I'll do so.

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. Also it would be great if you would consider becoming a follower - lovely to welcome recent new followers and 'likers' on facebook.

Please also consider going to CHNC Facebook page and clicking 'like' if you haven't done so already and encourage your friends to do the same. I always show at least one of my cards for the next challenge in advance and it's a good place to catch up with any news, winners etc.

Don't forget

Don't forget that 'anything goes' monthly challenges are on my Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra blog - you can share any Christmas card you make throughout the whole month, including those that you link here - there is no restriction on the number of entries you can make throughout the month - the link for CHNC challenge extra for April is here.

At the beginning of the year I started up a new challenge called Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge - anything goes as long as you cover your card with patterned paper - a randomly chosen prize winner every month. Please click on the link to find out more. If you have used patterned paper to cover your card blank for your Christmas card, why not enter it there too. And please be aware that the new Patterned Paper Challenge is not restricted to Christmas - it is for any occasions.

Thank you for your support
I look forward to seeing your entries
