CHNC challenge 564

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 563:

Please note that my email to send to is craftyhazelnut@gmail.com


Number 68: Poydan Kulma, with this lovely card:


Congratulations, Poydan. Please email me at craftyhazelnut@gmail.com with your full name and address so I can post your The night before Christmas paper pad.

Please note that winner needs to claim the prize by 30 October (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 'include a stocking'. I want to stress that this is purely optional.
