Good Morning Blogland!
Hope you are all well.
It's time for a new challenge at Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge Blog. Each weekly challenge is "Anything Goes as long as it's CHRISTMAS" with an OPTIONAL theme, which this week is
"Feature a Creature"
Winners are chosen at random.

I have used some snowflake print paper with a glittery die cut reindeer, embellished with some little gems.

Look forward to seeing your creations.

Hope you all had a good Christmas. We had a quiet but enjoyable one.

Today sees a new start for me. I have, for a couple of years, been designing cards for Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge Extra, but as Hazel is so very busy running other challenges, she has decided to end that blog. Good news though....I am now on her design team for the weekly Christmas Challenge Blog! Yay!
Every CHNC challenge will be "ANYTHING GOES AS LONG AS IT'S CHRISTMAS" but with an OPTIONAL theme which this week is "upcycle or use something old".
I don't know about you but I always keep old Christmas cards, some because they're just too nice to throw away, but mainly to recycle as tags etc. For this card I have upcycled a "Snowman" card, cutting out the little pictures, framing them and layering up on some snowy paper. I must apologise for the picture quality, I broke my camera a couple of months ago so had to use my daughter's cheap one. I was hoping Santa would bring me a new one but alas, he didn't so I'm going to have to treat myself!
Each week, a winner will be randomly picked and Hazel generously offers a prize. This week it is:

Here is the link to the challenge:

Can't wait to see your makes!

Hello bloggers!
It's time for a new challenge at The Crafter's Cafe
The theme for this fortnight is EMBOSSING. That can be dry or wet. Here are our sponsors:


I have used "Oz Poppy" from My Stitch Back in Twine, coloured in with Copics. I had a little play with the embossing....I used a die upside down to emboss my card, turned the card over (so the bumpy bit is on the bottom) and inked over. I like this's kind of shadowy.

Now it's over to you....emboss away!
