CHNC challenge 479

Thank you so much for all of your wonderful festive designs shared last week.

We look forward to seeing all your lovely festive crafting this week - perhaps something that was made before Christmas and not blogged ... or, hopefully, you're starting to get ahead for this year, now that we're into March on Sunday.

Before I tell you about this week's challenge, I need to let you know the winner of challenge 478:

Please note that my email to send to is

Number 20: Karen Ladd, with this lovely card:

Congratulations, Karen. Please email me at with your full name and address so I can post your Love to craft Krafty Christmas paper pad.

Please note that winner needs to claim the prize by 15 March (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 'vintage or shabby chic'. I want to stress that this is purely optional.

Challenge 479:

anything goes as long as it's Christmas
optional theme: vintage or shabby chic

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

Love to craft
Festive fun
6" x 6" paper pad
8 designs 30 sheets

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 'vintage or shabby chic'.

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 6 March 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 7 March 2020 at 09:00 UK time.
