CRAFT Challenge 130, Unusual Christmas.

Morning all,

Another Thursday brings another challenge here today at CRAFT Challenge again, this time our challenge is 'Unusual Christmas'. So, any project with this subject will be eligible for a prize and we look forward to seeing how you interpret this challenge. There is a maximum of 5 entries per person each challenge, so please don't enter any more than that or they will not be counted.

We hope you will enjoy playing along with this one again, I'm sure we all need plenty of Christmas cards this year. Thank you for everyone who joined us again last week for our Inspiration Picture challenge and thank you again to Bugaboo Digital Stamps for sponsoring us last week. Please scroll down to find the winners of last week's challenge, our Top3 and our Star of the Month.  If you were one of them, please contact us to claim your prize, your badge is available on our special page as published in our winners' post.

Craft Obsessions 

This week we have as our first sponsor Craft Obsessions. The prize they offer is a £10 voucher for their shop.

The Stamping Boutique 

Our second sponsor this week is The Stamping Boutique, who are offering 5 images of choice from their shop to our second winner this week.

This is what they have to say:

Tracey Malnofski's resume reads like a whose who of the Stamping Industry. Besides being the owner and a designer for The Stamping Boutique, she's also a stamp artist for Unity Stamp Company and has also worked for InStyleStamps, Squigglefly, and The Digi Shack. Her "Boutique" has it all - fairytale, whimsy, sentimental . . . and Candy! I do not envy the winner who has to choose digi stamps from all those delicious choices. Yep! A winner will be randomly selected to win 5 digital stamps of their choice from Tracey's Boutique!

Here's what Tracey says about her Stamping Boutique.

"The Stamping Boutique" is dedicated to quality products and original artwork. We not only provide wonderful digital images in our store, but also several lines of red rubber images. Our designers are chosen for their character and personality, as well as, their beautiful designs. We work hard to give you our very best. Thank you so much for having us as your sponsor this week.

So, now it's up to you again, we would love to come and visit your creations again. If you are 15 or younger, please include your age again in your name, so we can ask you to get in touch for a special badge and a little prize.

Don't forget to get in touch with us to claim your prize if you have won one of our challenges or to claim your badge if you made our Top 3! We only will respond to people who get in touch with us and will not go looking for you! (Sorry, a bit too busy to do that). If prizes have not been claimed by 6pm GMT the day prior to the next challenge going live (so for our current winners, see post below, next week), we will do another draw.

Have fun with our challenge and good luck!
