CHNC challenge extra for December 2014

Please click here to see the winner of CHNC challenge extra for November 2014.
It's worth checking because it might be you!

This challenge will last for the whole month of December- anything goes as long as it's Christmas - it doesn't have to be a card, you can link any project as long as it's Christmas!

I'm sure that most of us still have Christmas cards and other creations to make, so I look forward to seeing your entries.

Once again this year, all of these monthly challenges are being generously sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps - a winner will be randomly chosen using random.

Bugaboo Stamps are proud to sponsor this challenge - they are offering $21 of digital stamps to the randomly selected winner.

Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay
As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing!  From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.  Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week! 
 If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps   at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT   for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug

Here is the lovely inspiration from the Design Team

All digital stamps used were kindly supplied by our sponsor, Bugaboo Stamps

The team have made gorgeous creations - please click on the links to their blogs to read more about their projects.
You may add any Christmas creation for this challenge -
it's 'anything goes' every month, as long as it's Christmas

There really aren't any rules as such - just have a look at what I've written on the right hand sidebar and join in! You may link as many entries as you like as long as they weren't blogged before 1 December 2014.

Weekly challenges continue on my CHNC challenge blog - these usually have a theme - but anything that you enter there can be entered here as well, so you increase your chance of winning a prize. 

And, of course, you can chat about this monthly challenge extra blog on the CHNC facebook page as well - if you haven't joined that yet, please follow the link and 'like' the page.

I 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 URLwhere your card can be found) by 20:00 UK time 31 December.  Please mention my blog and create a link within the post for your creation. The winner will be announced at 23:00 UK  time on 31 December. January's challenge will begin at midnight UK time on 1 January 2015.

Please add your link to inlinkz. 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.

At the beginning of the year I started a new challenge called Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge - anything goes as long as you cover your creation with patterned paper - a randomly chosen prize winner every month. Please click on the link to find out more. If you have used patterned paper in this way for your Christmas card, why not enter it there too. And please be aware that the new Patterned Paper Challenge is not restricted to Christmas - it is for any occasions.
