CHNC challenge 483

I hope and pray that all our supporters are keeping well and safe in these difficult times.

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 - now that it will be April by the end of this challenge it's a good time to start thinking about getting ahead, if you haven't already done so.

Before I tell you about this week's challenge, I need to let you know the winner of challenge 482:

Please note that my email to send to is

Number 28: Jackie C, with this lovely card:

Congratulations, Jackie. Please email me at with your full name and address so I can post your Stamping Bella The Reindeer and the Birdie cling mounted stamp.

Please note that winner needs to claim the prize by 11 April (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 star or two or more'. I want to stress that this is purely optional.

Challenge 483:

anything goes as long as it's Christmas
optional theme: include a star or two or more

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

Love to craft
Cosy Christmas
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 'include a star or two or more'.

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 April 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 April 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.

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.
