CHNC challenge 552

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. There is still plenty of time to avoid panic when it gets towards the end of the year, although we are now getting towards the very end of July  ... doesn't seem possible.

Before I tell you about this week's challenge, I need to let you know the winner of challenge 551:

Please note that my email to send to is

Number 60: Aimeslee Winans, with this lovely card:

Congratulations, Aimeslee. Please email me at with your full name and address so I can post your Make & Create soft colours design pad.

Please note that winner needs to claim the prize by 7 August (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 twine or ribbon'. I want to stress that this is purely optional.

Challenge 552

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:
