Hello Crafters! Can you believe it?! In less than 24 days, it will be Christmas! Once again, another year has come and almost gone at an insane rate! Unfortunately, the older we get the more we perceive time flying by so quickly! I hope that 2023 was a year that you will be able to fondly look back on. It certainly had its ups and downs but hopefully more positive than negative for you and your family. Here is hoping that our world and the inhabitants of it will continue to improve and thrive in 2024!

As it is the first day of December, it is time for our final link up of 2023 to get under way! Given how little time is left until the BIG DAY itself is here, it is imperative to get all those last minute Christmas and other December Holiday cards completed before we run out of time! To provide you with some extra incentive to get your cards completed, we have some prizes available! So, why not join us for your chance to win?!
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 #107

Optional Twist: ANYTHING GOES

The Sleigh Belles and Merry Maidens have been working hard all year to get their Christmas cards created. As such, I gave the team the opportunity to take a much deserved break from having to post this month. At the midway I'll simply post a reminder about the link up. 
Our theme, as always, is ANYTHING GOES CHRISTMAS (or in celebration of other December holidays). We're not having an optional twist this month and strictly keeping it Anything Goes as long as it is still Christmas themed.

Link up two cards and earn a free paper each month or enter any card for a chance to win your choice of TWO Christmas or Winter themed mini kits of digital papers from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles.

Here is a preview of December's paper for those adding two cards to this month's link up:

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

Be sure to join us again on December 15th when I'll pop in with a reminder for this month's link up.  If everything goes according to plan, our winner announcement for Challenge #104 will be posted in the next few days as long as I can pull it off. Other special posts may be published throughout the month. Be sure to follow us through Bloglovin' so you don't miss a thing!

We look forward to seeing you participate!

It appears that one type of Mr. Linky is working and the other one is not. Here is my entry. I had more than one; but it won't allow me to post my photo.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Big hugs. Gloria
