Challenge #22 Midway: Optional Theme...Anything Goes

Hello there folks! It is time to get on with the midway for Challenge #22. Before we get underway, I want to say one final farewell to Janet from the Merry Maidens. I mentioned at the start of the challenge that October was her last month with us. Her final card is showcased below so I hope that you will have a chance to visit her and let her know how much she has inspired you these last eight months! I know she has inspired me and her work each month will definitely be missed!

It is now time to see what the Merry Maidens have been up to with their images from Crafty Sentiments Designs, our guest sponsor for this month!

Check out the great images the team worked with for their projects for the midway of this challenge. Clicking on the names of the images below will take you to their location in the store.

Harriet - Cold Christmas

Joy of Christmas Digi Stamp
While team members had the option of working with any of my Décosse's Dynamite Doodles papers, I did create a special set called An Eclectic Christmas 2. Check out the preview...

Everyone who links up a minimum of two cards during the month of October will earn ONE of the digital papers from this set. The specific paper up for grabs will be shown during the winner announcement post. Additionally, one random winner will earn the full set of papers.

Have your say in determining which paper will be offered to those who link up a minimum of two cards this month by completing the poll in the sidebar on the top right hand side.

Now check out what the Merry Maidens and my Co-coordinator Pat came up with to inspire you. Clicking on the names will take you to the individual blogs where you can check out the details for all these wonderful cards.

So if you haven't entered already, what are you waiting for?! It is time to link up your Christmas and other holiday cards for October. Whether you choose to link up two Anything Goes themed cards simply to earn your free paper this month, or you choose to also follow the optional theme (which also happens to be Anything Goes this month)  to have a chance at the sponsor's prize, it is completely up to you! 

Here is a refresher of the details for this challenge...

Please remember that this is a CARDS ONLY link up. While we've had some lovely tag entries in the past, along with other types of projects we've sadly had to disqualify them.

Challenge #22

Optional Theme: Anything Goes
Normally our challenge is two-fold: 1) an Anything Goes portion where people can submit any type of Christmas and/or other winter holiday themed card for the chance of earning a free digi paper as long as they submit two cards, and 2) an optional theme portion where participants have the chance to win a prize from our sponsor. This month the optional theme is also Anything Goes. So, as long as your card is Christmas related, the sky is the limit! That means that EVERYONE who enters this month will have the chance to win this month's sponsored prize of three (3) images from the Crafty Sentiments Designs store.

If you are new to this unique challenge, you can find out the impetus behind why I started it under the 'Introductions' tab.  As this is a unique kind of link up where we have both an anything goes Christmas option and an optional theme to follow, be sure to read all the details and rules you need to know in order to participate, by checking out the 'Challenge Details' tab (both tabs located at the top of the blog).

You can find the Challenge Details Summary along with the link up for Challenge #22 by clicking HERE.

  • Be sure to join us on October 23rd when Pat will be here to share a Christmas Tradition and/or recipe with you all.
  • Next up it will be time for our new challenge to start on November 1st.
  • Then, the winners from Challenge #21 will hopefully be posted on November 8th.
  • 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!
