CHNC challenge 570

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

We look forward to seeing all of your lovely festive crafting this week. By the time this challenge ends it will be December, so let's get those Christmas designs made and shared.

Before I tell you about this week's challenge, I need to let you know the winner of challenge 569:

Please note that my email to send to is

Number 44: Darlene Pavlick, with this lovely card:

Congratulations, Darlene. Please email me at with your full name and address so I can post your Happy watercolour design pad.

Please note that winner needs to claim the prize by 11 December (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 'something beginning with the letter R'. I want to stress that this is purely optional.

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:

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 3 December 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 4 December 2021 at 09:00 UK time.

  1. WOW YAY! I'm so excited to be last challenge winner! I just sent the required information via email! Thanks for the fun challenges.!

  2. Hello Hazel, it's been quite a while since I participated but it's been a difficult 20 months. Thankfully things are getting better and I'm finding a bit more time to craft. The DT cards are all delightful. Hope your having a good day despite everything. Hugs, Elizabeth x

  3. Lovely samples!! I esp like Martina's beautiful rustic card. The woodgrain background paper and the snowflakes clustered beneath the sentiment give such a wonderful winter look.
    Thank you for another fabulous challenge.
    Have a lovely Christmas season!
