Ch. #78: Opt. Twist…Merry ChristMOUSE

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. It is my fondest hope that some semblance of normalcy is on the horizon in the foreseeable future! 
Apologies for the delay in getting this post published. Of all days, my Internet decided it wanted to take a snooze for the majority of the afternoon and only recently came back on. 
While Christmas may still be several months away, 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, it is time to get down to the business of our latest challenge. Here is what you need to know...

Challenge #78

 Optional Twist: Merry ChristMOUSE

If you want the chance to win this month's featured paper pack, feature ONE OR MORE MICE on your card.
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 TWO images from this month's sponsor, Hetty Clare. You simply need to follow the twist if you'd like a chance to win this month's featured digital paper pack, Merry ChristMOUSE (you can see a preview for this set by clicking HERE).
Talking about Hetty Clare, it is time to get to know the details of this brand new sponsor…
Hi I'm Helen aka Hetty Clare, I trained in graphic design and illustration and have a real passion for art. I love drawing what comes into my head, hence the wide variety of images I provide in my Etsy shop.

Now check out what the Sleigh Belles came up with to inspire you. Clicking on the DT names will take you to the individual blogs where you can check out the specific details for all these wonderful cards. 
If you are interested in purchasing the sponsor's image featured in a particular creation, you can click on the link indicated below the card to head to the page in the Hetty Clare store where it can be found. 



So what are you waiting for? It is time to link up your Christmas and other holiday cards for June
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.

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.

If everything goes according to plan, our winner announcement for Challenge #77 will be posted between the 10th and the 18th. Be sure to also join us again on June 15th, for our midway post when the Merry Maidens will be here to share their amazing cards featuring items from Hetty Clare. 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!
