Saturday 3 December 2022



Hello bloggers! It's Saturday so it's time for a new challenge at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge . As always, it's an "ANYTHING GOES" challenge as long as it's Christmas related, with the optional theme this week of "THINGS WITH WINGS".

I intended to use my cute penguin dies to make my card this week but as per usual, I couldn't find them, and, as per usual, I found a die I'd forgotten about. So the angel card was made! I used snowflake backing paper layered on gold mirri card and cut the sentiment from gold mirri too, simple but sophisticated.

Now for some sad news from our leader, Hazel:

Having run this Christmas challenge blog for twelve years, I've been thinking it's time for a break .... this isn't an easy or quick decision, but one that has been on my mind for some time and recent family situations and life in general has made me realise that this is the right decision. I've been through difficult times during those twelve years and have never missed a challenge. So the challenge on 31 December will be the last one.

I've been so grateful for all those who have been on the design team over the years, including, of course, the present ones - also for the many sponsors who were so generous. So many have shared their inspirational designs and so many wonderful crafters have entered the challenges to share theirs.

Of course I am saddened by this but I totally understand. Hazel has worked tirelessly to keep two excellent blogs going but it's time for her to have a rest! I do plan on carrying on cardmaking, I have to....I have to much stuff to use up!

Looking forward to seeing your makes.
