CHNC challenge extra for August 2017

As it's the 1st of the month, it's time for CHNC challenge extra for August 2017. Please click on the link to find out all about it, see the lovely designs of my DT ... and I hope you will get out your Christmas stash and join in the challenge - we are now beginning August, so it makes sense to get on with Christmas designs now before it becomes a panic.

Bugaboo Stamps always generously sponsor my CHNC challenge extra and provide images for the team to use and showcase. The image I've used is Christmas jar, which is the pre-coloured version. Papers are from my offcuts box, using the old trick on top and bottom from one piece with another across it because the original piece wasn't big enough to cover the card blank. Glittered poinsettias from Hobbycraft, Santa from The Works, candy canes from stash.

This is also for:
