CHNC challenge 545

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

We look forward to seeing all of your lovely festive crafting this week. Now we're into June the year is nearly half gone, but still plenty of time to avoid panic then when it gets towards the end of the year.

Before I tell you about this week's challenge, I need to let you know the winner of challenge 544:

Please note that my email to send to is

Number 10: Debbie Johns, with this lovely card:

Congratulations, Debbie. Please email me at with your full name and address so I can post your acrylic stamps.

Please note that winner needs to claim the prize by 19 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 'winter fun'. I want to stress that this is purely optional.

Challenge 545
anything goes as long as it's Christmas
optional theme: winter fun

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

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 'winter fun'.
