Challenge #9 Winners Announcement

First up I just wanted to say thanks to those of you who left me well wishes during my winner announcement delay notification.  That was very sweet of you and much appreciated.  It was a tough week but I'm getting back on track so it is time to get on with announcing the winner and top three of Challenge #9 along with the list of individuals eligible to receive a free digital paper for September.  Are you one of those lucky peeps?!

Please note that there are still prizes and digital papers that have not been claimed from past months.  Were you a lucky past winner and may have missed it?  It might behoove you to check our Challenge Win Information page listed at the top of the blog (or you can click HERE to go there now but be sure to come back and check this post as well).

April, you are the winner of 3 digital stamps from Fresh Brewed Designs, our guest sponsor for September (chosen by Mini Web Tool), based on all eligible participants (i.e., those entrants who followed the optional theme).

April,  please send an email to the_12_moc_linkup {at} outlook {dot} com (or click HERE to bring the address up in your email program), with the subject, "12MoC Challenge #9 WINNER" to make arrangements to receive your prize.  Please note that it may take me several days to get back to you.  Thank you for your patience.  In the interim, please grab a copy of the winner badge below for your blog.

Next, it is time to get on with showcasing the Top Three for Challenge #9.  With so many wonderful entries to choose from, this was once again a difficult task for the design team.  We did however settle on three wonderful creations.  So, without further ado, here are our Stocking Stuffers for Challenge #9:

Congrats to our top three Stocking Stuffers!  Barbara, Raineyand Gail L., 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 September which makes each of them eligible to receive the ninth free digital paper of 2015.

29 people linked a total of 60 cards.  Only 15 of those individuals linked up a minimum of two cards each qualifying them to receive the digital paper from September. With 40% of the votes the choice was the bottom left image which is the grungy trees on the painted background.   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 up in your email program), with the subject, "12MoC September Paper" to make arrangements to receive your free paper:
  • Cathy(KraftyKoolKat)
  • Hazel
  • Marie Bingaman
  • Margaret A
  • Terrie (Paper Addict)
  • Crafting Vicky
  • Meg
  • Megan
  • Wies
  • Ginny B
  • Mandy 
  • Rainey
  • Carrie
  • April (Stampwilly)
  • Sheena
Welcome to Meg, Wies, Ginny B, Rainey, April and Sheena, all linking up two cards for the first time this month.  We also once again saw several new faces linking up just one card.  Hopefully these ladies, along with our other regulars who only linked up one card during September, will get the chance to link up two this month so they can earn the next free paper.  To all of you who linked up this past month, thanks ever so much!  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.  In the new year I will be implementing a new system and will be sending out the papers to everyone who earned them without you having to request it.  I am hoping that it will actually save both those of you who have earned the paper and myself some time.  For the remaining months of this year though, we'll stick out the old system.

Once again, we are going to 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 the full set..

The winner of the Treemendous Mini Set of Papers is (chosen by

So Marie, instead of simply requesting your paper for September, instead please send me an email (address and link above).  Use the subject, "12MoC:  Treemendous 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 being a "Card for a Child".  You can find out all the details along with the link up, by clicking HERE.

Also, be sure to join us on October 15th, for our midway post where you'll get to see cards created by the Merry Maidens!  Then on October 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,
