CHNC challenge 323

Wow! Another fabulous week of entries for challenge 322. I am so pleased to see so many inspirational designs by so many crafters. I hope you will join in again this week and, if you haven't yet thought about making a start on Christmas designs, I hope you will do so and share them here.

Please see here for changes made at the beginning of this year.

Before I tell you about this week's challenge, I need to let you know the winner of challenge 322. 

Please note that my email to send to is

Number 38: Leslie Turner, with this lovely card:

Congratulations, Leslie. Please email me at with your full name and address so I can arrange for you to receive your Urban Style design pad.

Please note that winner needs to claim the prize by 18 March (2 weeks)

From now on, every CHNC challenge is 'anything goes as long as it's Christmas', which will, hopefully, encourage as many crafters as possible to join in with their festive creations. However, there will always be an optional theme, which this week is 'vintage'. I want to stress that this is purely optional.

Challenge 323:
anything goes as long as it's Christmas
optional theme: vintage

Every week I will be giving a prize to a randomly chosen winner - this is the prize for this challenge:

Softly falling embossing folder by Leonie Pujol and a mini clear stamp by Docrafts

This is my card following the optional theme: vintage. Supplies are from Hunkydory and the bottom of the card has been embossed using a 'softly falling' embossing folder by Leonie Pujol (like the one in this week's prize) - you can read about it on My Crafty Outlook here:

Now it's over to you. You can use any materials, any techniques - it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas, with the optional theme of 'vintage'.

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 creation can be found) by 20:00 UK time Friday 10 March 2017. 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 11 March, 2017 at 09:00 UK time.

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 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. 

Don't forget that 'anything goes' monthly challenges are on my Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra blog (these are still being sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps with a prize of four digital images for the randomly chosen winner each month) - you can share any Christmas creation 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 March is here.

I also run a challenge blog called Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge - anything goes as long as you use some patterned paper - with a randomly chosen prize winner every month. Please click on the link to find out more. If you have used patterned paper for your Christmas creation, please enter it there too. And please be aware that the Patterned Paper Challenge is not restricted to Christmas - it is for any occasions as long as some patterned paper has been used.

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