It's not long now ...

... till the start of 2013. Yes, I know we are all thinking about Christmas now and rightly so, but New Year isn't far round the corner and that means that preparations need to be made for this CHNC challenge extra blog to get off the ground.

Please don't put your Christmas stash away once the big day has been and gone, but think about making cards throughout the year to ease the pressure that tends to build up towards the end of November and beginning of December.

If you've visited here before you will remember that I gave the opportunity for crafters to put their names forward as potential guest designers. I now have six willing crafters waiting in the wings, but would welcome others to apply. So if you are interested, please leave me a comment to tell me.

Christmas candy winner

Thank you so much for all the interest shown for this new venture and for the entries for the Christmas candy.  Unfortunately, there can only be one winner - I used random.org to find out who that should be:

So the winner is Janet of 2pdesigns - congratulations, Janet - please email me at hazelharris@ntlworld.com with your name and address and I'll get the package posted to you.

Please don't forget 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 on my weekly CHNC blog. You can also check there for news of these new monthly challenges that will begin on 1 January 2013.

Thank you to those who have expressed a wish to be considered for a guest designer slot next year. If you didn't link in the previous post, please leave a comment here and I'll include you on the list.

Please make sure you come back on 1 January 2013 for the first monthly Christmas challenge - an opportunity to get started right away with cards for Christmas 2013 - you'll be glad if you do because you won't be in a panic towards the end of the year.
