CHNC challenge 487

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 we will be into May by the end of this challenge it's a good time to get ahead ahead with those Christmas designs.

Before I tell you about this week's challenge, I need to let you know the winner of challenge 486:

Please note that my email to send to is

Number 12: Lia, with this lovely card:

Congratulations, Lia. Please email me at with your full name and address so I can post your Leonie Pujol mask and stencil sets.

Please note that winner needs to claim the prize by 9 May (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 'for a child'. I want to stress that this is purely optional.

Challenge 487:

anything goes as long as it's Christmas
optional theme: for a child

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