CHNC challenge 401

Thank you for all lovely entries for last week's challenge - 63 super 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 400:

Please note that my email to send to is

Number 46: Colien, with this lovely card (and others):

Congratulations, Colien. Please email me at with your full name and address so I can post your M & C Boutique cutting die 'Merry Christmas'.

Please note that winner needs to claim the prize by 15 September (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 'include an angel'. I want to stress that this is purely optional.

Challenge 401:

anything goes as long as it's Christmas
optional theme: include an angel

Every week a prize is given to a randomly chosen winner - this is the prize for this challenge, generously donated by Myrna, a member of the DT:

Hero Arts + Basic Grey
Picnic stamps

Here are the designs from myself and the rest of my wonderful team - I am so grateful to them for sharing their lovely designs:


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 'include an angel'.

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 7 September 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 8 September 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
