Challenge #81 Winner Announcement

Hello there to all our Christmas crafting friends!  I'm finally able to share the winners and our top three Stocking Stuffers from Challenge #81 (Add some METALLIC). I hope that you and your families continue to stay safe and healthy out there in your various locations in our world. 
September saw us with 78 entries added to our link up. Right now, 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!

Francesca, you are the winner of a $10.00AU gift voucher from Beccy's Place, our guest sponsor for September (chosen by based on all eligible entries).

Francesca, please send an email to the_12_moc_linkup {at} outlook {dot} com (or click HERE to bring the address up in your email program), with the subject, "12MoC Challenge #81 WINNER" to make arrangements to receive your prize. 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. For Challenge #81, Mandy, Susan and Lisa (myself) are presenting our favourite cards. So, without further ado, here are the Stocking Stuffers for September:

Congrats to our top three Stocking Stuffers! Hazel, Marianne and Rachelle, please grab a copy of the badge below for your blog.

Everyone who links up two cards each month is eligible to receive a free digital paper. Papers from last time around (Aug.) have NOT been sent out yet. I'm hoping (hoping being the operative word) to get it done before the first of the month.

The individuals who linked up a minimum of two cards each during the month of SEPTEMBER qualifying them to receive the digital paper from that month, will receive the Snowflakes Embossed Metallic Patterned Paper which received the most votes. Since the papers are smaller than usual (see note below), I'm also throwing in the paper that received the second highest vote which is the Pine Boughs Embossed Metallic Patterned Paper. I have included the watermarks of both papers, below...

To all of you who linked up during September, thanks ever so much! We are so happy to have all of you with us and hope that you'll continue to link up your holiday cards as you begin or continue to work on your stockpile for 2021!!! 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 that followed the twist and give out a set of digital papers to one lucky individual. The papers are all made so why not have an extra prize! PLEASE NOTE that the papers in this set are smaller than I typically make. Normally my papers are 3600 pixels by 3600 pixels (or 12 inches). Due to the nature of the technique used this month, it just looked better in a smaller size so these papers are 1800 pixels by 1800 pixels (or 6 inches). They'll still be suitable for card making but for anyone who does 12 x 12 size scrapbooking pages, this month's set won't be up to the job. In order to compensate for the reduced size, I made a full set of 12. Here is the watermark for the full set...   

The winner of the  
 Embossed Metallic: Christmas Edition
Digital Paper Kit
from Challenge #81
#15. KAREN
(chosen by MiniWebtool based on all eligible entries) 

Karen, as you linked up a minimum of two cards this month and were entitled to one of the papers from this set anyway, I'll just send out the full kit to you at the same time that I send out the individual paper to those who earned it this month.
Well folks, that is it for this one! If you haven't already, be sure to check out our current challenge going on now, with the Optional Twist this month of "Snow Globes". There are still a few days to get those last minute cards added. You can find out all the details along with the link up, by clicking HERE. Then, be sure to join us on November 1st when we'll return with a new challenge.

Until next time,
