CHNC challenge 89: for a child

It's time for a new challenge on my CHNC blog and for challenge 89 I'm asking to see a Christmas card 'for a child'.

The challenge is being sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps who kindly provided the 'akv girl xmas tree' image I've used for this card, coloured with copics and Sakura glitter pens. The background paper is an offcut of K & Co Christmas secret Santa, the hearts, snowflake  and tree with gems were free with a magazine.

I'm cheating a bit this weekend because I'm also going to show this for the Christmas Club Card challenge that has been set this fortnight by Sue W, asking us to use all our favourite things - well, I love the Christmas colours of red and green, I love using copics, adding a few embellishments as well as sentiments - and there's even a snowflake as Sue requested! I hope the girls will forgive me for doubling up this time, but as I'll be away in Eastbourne as this goes live I think I'll be forgiven.

This is also for:

Anything goes: early Christmas
Aud sentiments 62: Christmas
Nutcrafters 26: countdown to Christmas
Just keep on creating: Christmas is around the corner
Stamp and create September: anything goes


  1. Love your card Hazel, those freebies go so well with your chosen image. I'm sure you can be forgiven for doubling up this time, enjoy the rest of your stay in Eastbourne. Thanks again for having me as GD. Carol x

  2. Its not cheating at all Hazel, considering the amount of cards you make its a miracle you don't do this more often. Love your card, gorgeous bright colours. Will post mine tomorrow and I am cheating too lol.

  3. Hazel this is so beautifully designed and the colours and embellishments work so well together. Wishing you a fab Wednesday.
