CHNC challenge 491

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 are towards the end of May it's a good time to get ahead ahead with those Christmas designs - especially as many of us are at home a lot more than usual.

Before I tell you about this week's challenge, I need to let you know the winner of challenge 490:

Please note that my email to send to is

Number 10: Pasje Danki, with this lovely card:

Congratulations, Pasje. Please email me at with your full name and address so I post your Boutique paper stack.

Please note that winner needs to claim the prize by 6 June (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 some silver'. I want to stress that this is purely optional.

Challenge 491:

anything goes as long as it's Christmas
optional theme: use some silver

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

  4. Hi Hazel,
    Ooops! I accidentally linked up a non-Christmas card to this challenge instead of your patterned paper challenge. Please delete this, as there doesn't seem to be a delete option that I can use. My apologies. Thanks so much.
