Introducing Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Monthly Extra challenges

This blog is a 'spin off' from my Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge blog that has now been running successfully for nearly two years.

Starting at the beginning of 2013 I challenge you to add any Christmas card to this blog - challenges will be monthly, with a prize at the end of the month for a randomly chosen winner.

Bugaboo Stamps have very kindly agreed to sponsor every monthly challenge with a $21 prize of the winner's choice of digitial stamps.

Weekly challenges will continue on my Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge blog, so please continue to support them.

To launch this new extra blog, I'm giving away some Christmas candy:

2 'the red line' topper & paper pack, each containing:
1 topper sheet & 2 coordinated papers
2 C5 blank cards and envelopes
6 x 6 pad of 36 Berry Merry Christmas papers
6 x 6 pad of 24 My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Christmas papers
A pack of 10 A6 red card blanks with square apertures
S et of Classic Christmas Promarkers

Anyone can take part - I'm willing to post to anywhere in the world. The draw for the winner (randomly chosen) will take place at midnight UK time on 30 November, which will allow time to send them ahead of the Christmas mail - and, of course, the winner will have some lovely goodies to play along with the challenges in the new year.

All I ask is that you spread the word of my new blog and the prize I'm giving away to the winner, by becoming a follower and create a blog post and, if possible, also put my pink button in your sidebar, telling people that the extra monthly challenges will begin on 1 January 2013.

When you've become a follower and created a blogpost and/or put my blinkie in your sidebar, please leave a link to your blogpost in the linky below.

Please remember to have a look at my CHNC page on facebook - if you do go there please join in by clicking 'like' so that I know that you've been there. During the week you'll find updates and hints of the next challenge - please feel free to chat there - I know that some of you do already - thank you. Let's see if we can get at least 100 'likes' by the end of the year.

And, of course, please continue to support my weekly challenges on my Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge blog - the latest one is challenge 96: no patterned paper.
