Challenge #27 Midway: Optional Theme...Christmas Angels

Hello everyone! It is the 15th of the month and it is time to see what the Merry Maidens have been up to with their images from A Day For Daisies, our guest sponsor this month!

Check out the lovely images that the team worked with this month for the midway of the challenge. Clicking on any of the image names will take you to their spot in the A Day For Daisies store.

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 Angelic Nature. Check out the preview...

Everyone who links up a minimum of two cards during the month of March 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 below.

Please click "like" to choose the ONE paper that you would like offered up to participants who link up a minimum of two cards during the month of March. Poll will be open until March 31st, 11:59 p.m. EST. Please note that you can get a better idea of what the actual paper looks like by bringing the preview ABOVE up in the lightbox.

Now check out what the Merry Maidens 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 March. 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 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, we've sadly had to disqualify them.

Challenge #27

Optional Theme: Christmas Angels
Angels are an important part of Christmas. Many Christmas trees feature angels, attired in flowing gowns. Traditionally, it is the last ornament placed at the very top of the tree. There she sits, resplendent, gazing down in all her glory. The Christmas story is filled with angels bringing messages. As such, the angel deserves that special place of honour during the holiday season. This month, let's bring some of those beautiful angels to your cards!

In order to have a chance to win the prize from our wonderful guest sponsor this month, make sure that your card has an angel featured prominently on it in some form or other (i.e. image, part of the paper, embellishments, etc.).   IMPORTANT: If you do follow the optional theme, be sure to add FT after your name so that we include you in the draw for the prize.

Remember, you don't need to follow the theme to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month, and have your name thrown into the year end draw for some extra digital goodies. You only need to follow the theme if you want a chance to win this month's sponsored prize of a $12.00 gift certificate from A Day For Daisies.

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 different 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 #27 by clicking HERE.

 Don't Forget, if everything goes according to plan...

  • Hopefully this week I'll get a chance to post the winners from Challenge #25.
  • Be sure to join us during the third week of March when Pat will be here to share a special post on Christmas Miracles.
  • Next up it will be time for our new challenge to start on April 1st.
  • Then, the winners from Challenge #26 will hopefully be posted sometime between April 8th & 10th.
  • 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!

We look forward to seeing you participate!
