Challenge #35 Midway: Optional Theme...Star Struck

Hello and happy Wednesday folks! I hope that you are all having a great week so far. 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 items from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles, our guest sponsor this month!

In addition to paper(s) from the Starry Sky Mini Kit, which is this month's paper set and can be seen a bit farther down, all but one team member also used one of my sentiments. Below you will find the previews for the different sets they've worked with, linked to their respective store locations.  Please note that the image and sentiment used on Helen's card are from different designers. Please check out each of the DT Member's posts for further details.

 Holiday Hoopla Word Art set is one of six sets available in The Holiday
Hoopla Bundle which can be purchased in the Scribbles Designs store. 
You can find it HERE.

Sharing Part of Giving Set can be found

Christmas Time Set 1 can be found
in the Imagine That Digistamp store HERE.

Christmas Time Set 1 & Sharing Part of Giving Set can both also be 
purchased in a bundle with two additional sets for $5.00 HERE.

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


Everyone who links up a minimum of two cards during the month of November 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 November. Poll will be open until November 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. 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 November. 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 #35

Optional Theme: Star Struck

"The stars in the sky shone down where He lay."
                           ~lyrics from Away in the Manger
I don't know about you, but for me, the stars seem extra bright during the holiday season. Not only the stars in the sky, but all those beautiful star decorations glittering about us. The star even sits prominently on the tops of many a Christmas tree. Of course, for the Christian community, the star plays heavily in the Christmas story guiding the wise men to witness the birth of Jesus. Since we're getting close to that big day, we want you to get a little star struck this month!
In order to have a chance to win the prize from our guest sponsor this month, be sure to have one or more stars featured prominently on your card. It can be the image itself, or an important part of the image, or in the paper(s) you use but it must be featured prominently. 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. You only need to follow the theme if you want a chance to win this month's sponsored prize of EITHER the Holiday Hoopla Digital Scrapbooking Kit OR five different mini kits (of six papers each) from the Christmas and/or Winter section from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles.

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 #35 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 December 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!
