Challenge #97 Midway: ANYTHING GOES CHRISTMAS with the Optional Twist…Into the WOODS We Go…

Welcome back crafters! It is the 15th of the month and that means it is time for the midway of our current challenge. I hope that you and your families all continue to stay safe and well in the various regions that you reside.
Right now, as we are halfway through the month of February, it is time to see what the Merry Maidens have been up to! Clicking on the DT 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 February. 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 #97

  ANYTHING GOES with the 

Optional Twist: 

Into the WOODS We Go…

Our theme, as always, is Anything Goes Christmas (or in celebration of other December holidays). If you want to challenge yourself, you can always follow our optional twist of: Into the WOODS We Go… If you would like, you can feature something from the woodland on your card. You could choose trees; animals you might find in the woods such as deer, foxes, bears, rabbits, etc.; or, you could create some sort of wintry woodland scene if you prefer.

Keep in mind though, 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 your choice of TWO Christmas or Winter themed mini kits of digital papers from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles. Following the twist is simply for fun.
Here is a preview of February's paper for those adding two cards to this month's link up: 
As it turns out I ended up making a full mini kit. It features the above paper, the same pattern only with a green background (seen on Margaret's card), a paper with the scene itself (as showcased on two of the cards above), and also three textures (two of them seen on Margaret's card). It was one of those, 'I can't make up my mind which I like better kinda months' that the team ended up benefiting from.

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.

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

I'll hopefully be publishing the winner announcement from Challenge #95 sometime in the next two weeks. Then, please join us on March 1st when we'll be back with our newest link up! 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!
