CHNC challenge 469

Lovely to see so many festive entries again this week. Hopefully, you've got most of your
Christmas makes done by now, but there's an opportunity once again to show anything you haven't shown already - and by the time this challenge has ended Christmas Day will have come and gone.

Wishing you a very Happy Christmas

We look forward to seeing all your lovely festive crafting.

Before I tell you about this week's challenge, I need to let you know the winner of challenge 468:

Please note that my email to send to is

Number 55: Birgit, with this lovely card:

Congratulations, Birgit. Please email me at with your full name and address so I can post your Make & Create Paper pad. 

Please note that winner needs to claim the prize by 4 January (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 the word Christmas'. I want to stress that this is purely optional.

Challenge 469:

anything goes as long as it's Christmas
optional theme: use the word Christmas

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

Make & Create
30 sheets
10 designs

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 'use the word Christmas'.

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 27 December 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 28 December 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.
