Challenge #30 Midway: Opt Theme...Fur, Fluff, Feathers OR Fins

It is the 15th of the month, and that means it is time to see what the Merry Maidens have been up to with their adorable images from Imagine That Digistamp, our guest sponsor this month! However, before we start I wanted to let you all know that this will be the last time you will see a card from Petra, one of our Merry Maidens. Petra is so very talented and we are very sad to see her go. I hope that you will join me in wishing her the best of luck as she moves on to new adventures in her life.

Right now though, it is time to get back to our midway...

Clicking on any of the image names will take you 
to their spot in the Imagine That Digistamp 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 A Touch of Frost: Animal Tracks. Check out the preview...

Everyone who links up a minimum of two cards during the month of June 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 June. Poll will be open until June 30th, 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. Marji once again created two and Diane Louise completely finished the inside of hers so we're showing it as well. 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 June. 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 #30

Optional Theme:  
Fur, Fluff, Feathers OR Fins
What would Christmas be like without our furry, fluffy, feathery or finned companions in our lives?! Have you ever watched a dog with its head stuck in a Santa hat or packaging as it snuffles its way across the floor? Or, how about having to anchor a Christmas tree so that your cats don't bring it down? Our animal companions add an extra heap of joy to most Christmases. That is why we want to see a Christmas card that features an animal that one might have as a household pet. Dog lover, cat lover or somewhere in between, what will your focus be?

In order to have a chance to win the prize from our wonderful guest sponsor this month, make sure that your Christmas card has an image of a household pet as the focal point (i.e., cat, dog, bird, mouse, rabbit, hedgehog, ferret, fish, turtle, 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, have a chance to win a special mini kit of digi papers 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 $10 gift certificate to the Imagine That Digistamp 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 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 #30 by clicking HERE.

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

  • If I can pull it off, I'll try and get another winner announcement done.
  • Our new challenge will start on July 1st.
  • 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!
