Challenge #58 Midway: Opt. Twist…Sensational Santa

Welcome back folks! It is the 15th of the month and that means it is time for the midway of our current challenge.

As we are halfway through the month of October, it is time to see what the Merry Maidens have been up to with their fun images from Limited Runs, our guest sponsor this month!

http://limitedrunsstamps.blogspot.ca

Clicking on the DT names will take you to the individual blogs where you can check out the details for all these wonderful cards. Donna is joining us during the midway this month.

If you are interested in purchasing the sponsor's image featured in a particular card, you can click on the link indicated below the card to head to the page in the Limited Runs store where it can be found. The images used on all these cards are found in the Seasonal-Christmas Category.

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. Below you will find 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, ornaments and other creative projects in the past, we've sadly had to disqualify them.


Challenge #58

Optional Twist: Sensational Santa

If you want the chance to win this month's featured paper pack, be sure to use a SANTA CLAUS of some nature as the focus of your creation.  

Keep in mind though, that you don't need to follow the twist to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month or for a chance to win a $10.00 gift voucher to the Limited Runs store. You simply need to follow the twist if you'd like a chance to win this month's featured digital paper pack, Santa Stops Here.

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 twist 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). I have provided a summary of the most important rules in the right sidebar.


If you would like a say in determining which digital paper will be offered to those who link up a minimum of two cards this month, be sure to vote in our poll. Click HERE to head there now.

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

Challenge #57 Winner Announcement

Hello to all our Christmas crafting friends!  I'm popping in to announce the winners and our top three Stocking Stuffers from Challenge #57. Sorry that I am a couple days later than expected getting the winner announcement out. It has been one of those months it seems where my time feels like it is getting sucked up into a vacuum! That is two months in a row now but hopefully it won't become a trend. Oh and Happy Thanksgiving Weekend to all my fellow Canadians out there!

We had 61 entries in our September challenge and it is time to get on with the finding out who our winners are.

Are you one of those lucky peeps?! Let's find out!

Please note that it may take me a while to get back to you. Thank you for your patience. In the interim, please grab a copy of the winner badge below for your blog.





Next, it is time to get on with showcasing the top three. With so many wonderful entries to choose from, it is always such a difficult task for the design team.

Papers will be sent to the email address that qualifying participants used when they added their cards to the Link Up, as soon as I can manage!

As always, we are going to have a random draw from all the entries and give out a set of six digital papers to one lucky individual. The papers are all made so why not have an extra prize! Here is the watermark for the full set...
