CHNC challenge 565

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 time to avoid panic when it gets towards the end of the year, although we are well into October already.

Before I tell you about this week's challenge, I need to let you know the winner of challenge 564:

Please note that my email to send to is

Number  46: Caroline, with this lovely easel card:

Congratulations, Caroline. Please email me at with your full name and address so I can post your set of three stencils.

Please note that winner needs to claim the prize by 6 November (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 'add a flower or two or more'. I want to stress that this is purely optional.

Challenge 565
anything goes as long as it's Christmas
optional theme: add a flower or two or more

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

Make & Create
Magical Christmas design pad
30 sheets with 10 designs

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 'add a flower or two or more'.

We look forward to seeing what you come up with for this challenge - please add a link to your blog post (not your blog, but the actual post where your creation can be found) by 20:00 UK time Friday 29 October 2021. Please include a link to this blogpost within the post for your creation.

You can enter as many times as you wish and also link to any other challenges that allow you to do so, but new work only, please.

A new challenge will be set on Saturday 30 October 2021 at 09:00 UK time.

Please add your link to linky tools. If by any chance it disappears, please leave a comment with the link to your blog post and I will make sure it is added.

If you haven't done so already, please become a follower and grab my bright pink button to post on your sidebar and help continue to spread the word about this challenge blog - thank you.

Please also consider going to CHNC Facebook page and clicking 'like' if you haven't done so already and encourage your friends to do the same.

I also run a challenge blog called Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge - anything goes as long as you use some patterned paper - with a randomly chosen prize winner every month. Please click on the link to find out more. If you have used patterned paper for your Christmas creation, please enter it there too. And please be aware that the Patterned Paper Challenge is not restricted to Christmas - it is for any occasions as long as some patterned paper has been used.

Thank you for your support
We look forward to seeing your entries


  1. Happy Dance to the winner - thank you for a new challenge - wonderful work by the DT

  2. Thank you for another challenge and beautiful inspiration for making our Christmas cards! I just linked up #22 and I apologize that for some reason I could not get the photo of my card to display as the linky didn't give me that choice. I had a large selection of images to choose from but none of them were my card, so I ended up picking another image on the same blog post. I think I have figured out how to get it right the next time (by choosing a photo from my computer instead of from my blog) so I'll see you tomorrow with a new card.

  3. Thank you for choosing my card as the winner. I will send an email!
    Love Caroline
