CHNC challenge 459

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 458:

Please note that my email to send to is

Number 13: Blankina (Anna), with this lovely card:

Congratulations, Anna. Please email me at with your full name and address so I can post your Dovecraft Fun Fair helter skelter clear stamp.

Please note that winner needs to claim the prize by 26 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 'include a stocking'. I want to stress that this is purely optional.

Challenge 459:

anything goes as long as it's Christmas
optional theme: include a stocking

Every week a prize is given to a randomly chosen winner - this is the prize for this week kindly donated by one of our DT members, Myrna:

set of clear 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 theme of 'include a stocking'.

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 18 October 2019. 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 19 October 2019 at 09:00 UK time.

Please add your link to linky tools. 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.

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.
