CHNC challenge 470

I hope you had a good Christmas.

Wishing you a very Happy New Year

We look forward to seeing all your lovely festive crafting. Please show us anything you made for Christmas that you haven't shared before ... or perhaps you're starting again with your festive designs - lol!

Before I tell you about this week's challenge, I need to let you know the winner of challenge 469:

Please note that my email to send to is

Number 104: myasperations (Kathy A), with this lovely card:

Congratulations, Kathy. 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 11 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 'any Christmas or New Year card'. I want to stress that this is purely optional.

Challenge 470:

anything goes as long as it's Christmas
optional theme: any Christmas or New Year card

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

Couture Creations
Be Merry and Classic
24 double sided sheets

6" x 6"

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

Susan - I couldn't choose just one of my tag cards!!

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 'any Christmas or New Year card'.

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 3 January 2020. 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 4 January 2020 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.

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, 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.
