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 May. 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 #88

  ANYTHING GOES with the 

Optional Twist: Winter SPORTS

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 Winter SPORTS (for example: skating, hockey, skiing, tobogganing, snowboarding, 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 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 May's paper for those adding TWO cards to this month's link up:
 
 


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...

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!

Challenge #84 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 #84 (Anything Goes CHRISTMAS). I hope that you and your families continue to stay safe and healthy out there in your various locations in our world. My heart goes out to anyone living in Ukraine or with family still living there. Nobody deserves to have to live through the horrors of war.
 
December saw us with an incredible 169 entries added to our link up. It was amazing to see so many entries during the final month of 2021. 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!
 



 
 
Diane, you are the winner of a $10.00 gift voucher to the Scribbles Designs store, our guest sponsor for December (chosen by random.org based on all eligible entries).

Diane, 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 #84 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. So, without further ado, here are the Stocking Stuffers for December:



 

Congrats to our top three Stocking Stuffers! Debbie, Veronika and Beckie, 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. Paper for November has now been sent out. If you were expecting one but haven't received it yet, please leave me a comment and I'll look into it for you.

The individuals who linked up a minimum of two cards each during the month of DECEMBER qualifying them to receive the digital paper from that month, will receive the Wild Blue Yonder Patterned Paper which received the most votes. I have included the preview of this paper below...
 
To all of you who linked up during December, 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 2022!!! 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!  Here is the preview for the full set...     
 
 
The winner of the  
  A Touch of Frost: Mid-Tone Colours Collection Mini Kit
from Challenge #84
is
#118. FABIOLA

Fabiola, 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 mini kit to you at the same time that I send out the individual paper to those who earned it this month.
 
As mentioned during the start post, this month we have two additional prizes.

First, we have FIVE preselected Christmas and/or Winter themed digital stamps (Twigs, Snowden, Christmas Bells, Quirky Christmas Tree and Randolph) from Creative Bug Digital SnapShots awarded to one random winner

Finally, as a thank you to all of our players, both new and long standing, I'm also drawing one random name from all the entries to win that person's choice of ONE mini kit selected from all the kits that were offered up last year to my team members. These are the same 12 kits that the individual paper given out each month during 2021 were selected from. 

The winner of the  
Winner's Choice of ONE Mini Kit from 2021 is
