Challenge #1 Winners Announcement

Hello and happy Sunday to all of our friends out there in blogland.  It is time to announce the winner and top three of challenge #1 along with the list of individuals eligible to receive a free digital paper for January.  Are you one of those lucky peeps?!

Ursula, you are the winner of the $10.00 gift certificate from Limited Runs, our guest sponsor for January (chosen by Mini Web Tool), based on all eligible participants (i.e., those entrants who followed the optional theme).
Ursula, please send an email to the_12_moc_linkup {at} outlook {dot} com (or click  HERE to bring the address in your email program), with the subject, "12MoC Challenge #1 WINNER" to make arrangements to receive your prize and badge.  Please note that it may take me a few days to get back to you.  Thank you for your patience.

Next, it is time to get on with showcasing the Top Three for Challenge #1.  With over 50 entries to choose from, this was no easy task for the design team.  We did however settle on three amazing creations.  So, without further ado, here are our Stocking Stuffers for Challenge #1:

Congrats to our top three Stocking Stuffers!  Kitty, Pat and Hélène, please grab a copy of the badge below for your blog.

Next up, it is time to share all the names of those people who linked up two cards in January which makes each of them eligible to receive the first free digital paper of 2015.  16 people linked a total of 57 cards. 14 of those individuals linked up a minimum of two cards each qualifying them to receive January's digital paper. The gold paper was the one chosen with 50% of the votes in the poll we had up during the month of January so that is the one that everyone will be receiving. I have included the watermark of it, below.

So, the following people need to send an email to the_12_moc_linkup {at} outlook {dot} com (or click  HERE to bring the address in your email program), with the subject, "12MoC January Paper" to make arrangements to receive your free paper:
  • Margaret A
  • CraftyGirl
  • KT Fit Kitty
  • Marji (Tiggerscraps)
  • Crafting Vicky
  • Terrie (Paper Addict)
  • Cathy (KraftyKoolKat)
  • Hazel
  • Rachel Taylor (Blossom Cards)
  • Ursula Uphof
  • Hélène (2amscrapper) 
  • Pat (Patacake) 
  • Mandy (Paper Panda)
  • Sandy S (2 in one post)

Welcome to CraftyGirl, Terrie, Cathy, Mandy and Sandy linking up two cards for the very first time!  Thanks to the rest of you who've made your way over here to the new blog. We are so happy to have all of you with us and hope that you'll continue to link up your holiday cards throughout the year!!!

Now, as always, if you thought you had linked up two cards but don't find your name in the list above, just let me know and we'll sort things out. We will also add these names to the 'Challenge Win Information' page as soon as we get the chance, for anyone who doesn't see this post.  I ask that you be patient with waiting for me to send out your paper. I promise that I'll get to it as quick as I can.

Now just at the last minute, I've decided to put forth an additional prize.  Each month throughout the year (or at least most of the months) I will be putting together a set of papers for the DT to work with based on the theme for that month.  The single paper that is given out is from this set.  However, I've just decided that I am going to also have a random draw from all the entries and give out the set of six papers, to one lucky individual.  The papers are all made so why not have an extra prize!  Here is the watermark for that set...

The winner this month of the A Matter of Time Pocket Watch Papers is (chosen by

So Margaret, instead of using the subject listed above for just the one paper, use the subject, "12MoC: A Matter of Time Set" and I'll make arrangements for you to receive the full set of six papers.

Well folks, that is it for today.  While you are here, please be sure to check out the details for our current challenge going on now (if you haven't already), with the Optional Theme this month of "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus".  You can find out all the details along with the link up, by clicking HERE.

Also, be sure to join us on February 15th, for our midway post where you'll get to see cards created by the Merry Maidens!  Then on February 23rd, Monica will be back to share another holiday tradition with you all.  Other special posts may be published throughout the month.  Be sure to sign up to have our posts delivered by email or follow us through Bloglovin' so you don't miss a thing!

Until next time,
