CHNC challenge 390

Thank you for all your lovely entries for last week's challenge - 40 lovely entries! We're looking forward to seeing your festive designs this week.

Before I tell you about this week's challenge, I need to let you know the winner of challenge 389:

Please be aware that there are some unclaimed prizes ... let me know if you've missed the deadline and I'll see what I can do.

Please note that my email to send to is

Number 14: Gail Scott, with this lovely tag:

Congratulations, Gail. Please email me at with your full name and address so I can arrange for you to claim your Spellbinders Shapeabilities Imperial Gold gold corner sets one.

Please note that winner needs to claim the prize by 30 June (2 weeks)

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 'non-traditional Christmas colours'. I want to stress that this is purely optional.

Challenge 390:

anything goes as long as it's Christmas
optional theme: non-traditional Christmas colours

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

Leonie Pugol
Inner strength embossing folders
Each folder size; 3.1" x 1.6"

Here are the cards from myself and the rest of my team:

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 'non-traditional Christmas colours'.

We 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 22 June 2018. 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 23 June 2018 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.

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 (if you haven't followed the optional theme this week, of course), 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
We look forward to seeing your entries
