CHNC challenge 391

Thank you for all your lovely entries for last week's challenge - such a lot of entries once again! 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 390:

Please note that my email to send to is

Number 29: Epie, with this lovely card:

Congratulations, Epie. Please email me at with your full name and address so I can arrange for you to claim your Leonie Pugol inner strength embossing folders.

Please note that winner needs to claim the prize by 7 July (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 'use some washi tape'. I want to stress that this is purely optional.

Challenge 391:

anything goes as long as it's Christmas
optional theme: use some washi tape

Every week a prize is given to a randomly chosen winner. Myrna, a member of my design team kindly sent me a box full of goodies to be used as prizes - thank you, Myrna for your generosity. So, here is the prize for this challenge, given by Myrna:

Hot off the Press 
Timeless clear stamps

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 'use some washi tape'.

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 29 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 30 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.

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.

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
