Challenge #31 Midway: Opt Theme...Oh DEER!

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 Bugaboo Stamps, our guest sponsor this month!

Clicking on any of the image watermarks will take you to their page in the Bugaboo Stamps store where each of these images can be found.

While team members had the option of working with any of my Décosse's Dynamite Doodles papers, I did create a special set called Deer Oh Deer. Check out the preview...

Everyone who links up a minimum of two cards during the month of July 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 July. Poll will be open until July 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. If you are looking for creations from Diane Louise, she is on a leave of absence for the next three months but she'll be back with us hopefully in October. Pat is also unable to join us this month but will be back to participate when she is able to. Suze finished the inside of her card 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. All except for my own that is. Unfortunately, I just haven't had a chance to add it to my own blog yet. Hopefully, it will be added soon.

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 July. 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 #31

Optional Theme: Oh DEER!

Oh DEER! It has already been half a year! 
Before we know it, the day we've been planning for will soon be here!

Are you getting any closer to getting your Christmas Card Stash completed? This month we thought it would be fun to add a deer or reindeer image, even a reindeer wannabe image would be okay; you know, the images where kids or dogs don a set of antlers and pretend to be a reindeer?!

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 DEER or REINDEER (or reindeer wannabe). 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 $12 gift certificate to the Bugaboo Stamps 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 #31 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. 
  • Pat will be here on the 23rd with a special post for you all.
  • Our new challenge will start on August 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!
