Welcome back folks. It is the 15th of the month and time for our midway.

As we are halfway through the month of October already, it is time to see what the Merry Maidens have been up to with the the following awesome images from Pattie's Creations, our guest sponsor this month!

Thank you so much to this month's generous sponsor for providing such amazing designs for the team to work with! Please pop over and pay Pattie's Creations a visit when you have the chance! You are sure to find something to add to your wish list while you are there!

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 October. Whether you choose to link up ANY type of Christmas or holiday card you've made for a chance to win this month's Paper Kit, or link up two of them 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 #46

Optional Theme:
Gear Up For Winter
While we've officially just started fall, winter is just around the corner; so, it is time to expect cooler temperatures settling in for some parts of the world, particularly for those locations in the Northern Hemisphere! As such, it is time to start thinking about heading to the back of the closet and digging out all your warmer weather clothing and winter gear you might use in order to be prepared for when these colder temps hit. We've been know to have snow as early as October in the area I live and incredibly, there was a freak snow storm in parts of Alberta just a couple of weeks ago. The weather is about to change and with these colder temps comes opportunities for new sporting adventures such as skating, skiing and snowshoeing.

That is why this month, in order to have a chance to win the prize from our guest sponsor, we want you to create a card that has warm winter clothing and/or possibly other gear that one might adorn oneself with in the winter. Some examples of winter clothing include hats, mitts, muffs, scarves, warm sweaters, coats, boots, etc. When we are talking about winter gear, we are referring to items that MUST be attached to a person's body in order to use them; so, items such as skates, skis, snowshoes, snowboards, etc. The clothing or items can be an image on its own or it can be something that a character is wearing (whether a person, animal or other type of character). As long as some sort of winter clothing or other winter gear features prominently in your image, it is entirely up to you. 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. 

Keep in mind though, that you don't need to follow the theme to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month or for a chance to win the featured paper set. You only need to follow the theme if you want a chance to win THREE images from the Pattie's Creations 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 or other December Holiday 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

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

  • Our new challenge will start on November 1st.
