Challenge #75: Opt. Twist…CHEERS!

Welcome Christmas Crafters! It is the first day of a brand new month and time for our latest link up. I hope that you and your families continue to stay healthy during this difficult time in our lives.
While Christmas may still be a long way off, it is never too early to get started on all the Christmas and other December Holiday cards you are going to need when December finally rolls around! Whether you are just embarking on getting a start to your stash or you already have a few cards completed, we'd love to have you join us and add your cards to our Link Up for a chance to win some goodies!
If you are new to this unique challenge, you can find out the impetus behind why I created it under the Introductions tab and all the details you need to know in order to participate, by checking out the Challenge Details tab (both tabs located at the top of the blog). For your convenience, a summary of the most important rules can be found in the right sidebar under the heading Basic Rules Summary.

Right now, time to get down to the business of our latest challenge. Here is what you need to know...

Challenge #75

 Optional Twist: CHEERS!

If you want the chance to win this month's featured paper pack, feature a BEVERAGE you might drink during the HOLIDAYS as the focus of your card. For ex., eggnog, mulled wine, hot toddy, wassail, hot buttered rum, brandy Alexander, Christmas punch, hot cocoa, etc.
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 $12 gift certificate from this month's sponsor, Bugaboo Stamps. You simply need to follow the twist if you'd like a chance to win this month's featured digital paper pack, Cheers! Christmas Edition (you can see a preview for this set by clicking HERE).
Talking about Bugaboo Stamps, it is time to refresh ourselves with the details of this returning sponsor…

Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay 
As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was ten years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing!  From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.  Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!
