CHNC challenge 522

 Wishing you a very Happy New Year

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 ... you might still  have made quite a few Christmas designs recently and haven't had time to blog them, so this is an opportunity ... or perhaps you have made a New Year card and can share that.

Before I tell you about this week's challenge, I need to let you know the winner of challenge 521:

Please note that my email to send to is

Number 92: Gail: with this lovely tag:

Congratulations, Gail. Please email me at with your full name and address so I post your embossing folders by  Leonie Pujol. 

Please note that winner needs to claim the prize by 9 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 522:
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 - kindly donated by Myrna, one of my team:

Set of acrylic stamps

I'm sorry to say that Catherine and Myrna won't be staying on with the team in the new year. I want to thank them both for the wonderful part they have played in sharing their designs week by week ... you will both by missed,

Here are the designs from myself and the rest of my wonderful team for this week - 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 'any Christmas or New Year card'.
