CHNC challenge 458

Thank you for all the lovely entries for last week's challenge.

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 457:

Please note that my email to send to is

True Random Number Generator 54 Powered by RANDOM.ORG

Number 54: Gina, with this lovely card:

Congratulations, Gina. Please email me at with your full name and address so I can post your ScrapBerry's Sweetheart Set of clear stamps.

Please note that winner needs to claim the prize by 19 October (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 'sentiment as the focal point'. I want to stress that this is purely optional.

Challenge 458:

anything goes as long as it's Christmas
optional theme: sentiment as the focal point

Every week a prize is given to a randomly chosen winner - this is the prize I am giving for this week:

Fun Fair Helter Skelter clear stamp

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