Challenge #70 Midway: Opt. Twist…COLOUR CHALLENGE

 Welcome back folks! It is the 15th of the month and that means it is time for the midway of our current challenge.

As we are halfway through the month of October, it is time to see what the Merry Maidens have been up to with their sweet images from Pattie's Creations, our guest sponsor this month!

http://www.etsy.com/shop/pattiescreations

Clicking on the DT names will take you to the individual blogs where you can check out the details for all these wonderful cards. Helen N. is joining us during the midway. 
 
If you are interested in purchasing the image featured in a particular card, you can click on the link indicated below the creation to head to the page in the Pattie's Creations store where it can be found.

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 October. 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 #70

Optional Twist: 

COLOUR CHALLENGE

If you want the chance to win this month's featured paper pack, make sure that your card showcases at least THREE OF THE COLOURS FROM THE PALETTE BELOW.
 
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 THREE images from the Pattie's Creations store. You simply need to follow the twist if you'd like a chance to win this month's featured digital paper pack, Foil Textures: Festive Colours (you can see a preview for this set by clicking HERE).

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.


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.

 Hello there to all our Christmas crafting friends!  I'm popping in today to share the winners and our top three Stocking Stuffers from Challenge #69. I hope that you and your families continue to stay safe and healthy during this difficult time in our lives.

September saw us with a whopping 82 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!



 
Karen, you are the winner of a collection of Christmas Sentiment Sets from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles, our guest sponsor for September (chosen by random.org based on all eligible entries).

http://decossesdynamitedoodles.blogspot.ca/

Karen, 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 #69 WINNER" to make arrangements to receive your prize. While I am currently caught up with all emails in this account, 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 #69, Christine, Suze, and Margaret are presenting their favourite cards. So, without further ado, here are the Stocking Stuffers for September:

 
Congrats to our top three Stocking Stuffers! Rina, Marie and Deanne, 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 month have previously 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 SEPTEMBER qualifying them to receive the digital paper from that month, will receive the Ho Ho Ho Word Art Paper which received the most votes. I have included the watermark of the paper, 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 start or continue to work on your stockpile for 2020!!! 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 six digital papers to one lucky individual. The papers are all made so why not have an extra prize! Here is the watermark for the full set... 
 
 
 
The winner of the  
  Sentimentally…Christmas Mini Kit
from Challenge #69 is

#21. ROSINA

(chosen by miniwebtool.com based on all eligible entries) 
 
Rosina, 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 (hopefully some time in the next week or two).

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 "Colour Challenge". There are still a little over two weeks to go and you can find out all the details along with the link up, by clicking HERE. We'll be back on October 15th with our midway so I hope you can join us again at that time. Then, please join us again on November 1st when we'll be back with our newest link up!

Take care and we'll see you all again on Thursday! 

Until then,

Talking about Pattie's Creations, it is time to refresh ourselves with the details of this returning sponsor…

http://www.etsy.com/shop/pattiescreations
I am an Internet Technology Professional and an Artist. I always dreamed of being an artist, but I found out quickly that I needed another field to support my family so I pursued a Degree in Information Technology. I love to use Adobe Photoshop and Fireworks to enhance my work. I just recently started selling my very own digital images and I am so excited to be here sponsoring this Challenge.

I created a character called Pattieboop and her cat named Allie. I have had so much fun coming up with different images so I also created a site to sell them. You can go to my store to find out more about Pattieboop & Allie. I know you will just love them when you see them.

Challenge #69 Midway: Opt. Twist…SAY IT WITH A SENTIMENT

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 well in the various regions that you reside.

Right now, as we are halfway through the month of September, it is time to see what the Merry Maidens have been up to with their sentiments from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles our guest sponsor this month!

http://decossesdynamitedoodles.blogspot.ca/
 
Clicking on the DT names will take you to the individual blogs where you can check out the details for all these wonderful cards. Helen is joining us this month for the midway.

The first sentiment featured on Suze's card, along with the sentiments showcased on Mandy's and Helen's card are sentiment from sets for sale. While they are not currently in a store, if you are interested in purchasing one of them, please leave a comment. These same sentiment sets will be offered as part of the prize this month along with some others. The Deck the Halls and Christmas Time sets also match this month's current paper pack. The second sentiment featured on Suze's card is a freebie. If you are interested in grabbing it, you can click on the link indicated below the card to head to the page where it can be found on the Décosse's Dynamite Doodles blog. The sentiment showcased on Granmargaret's card can be found in the Scribbles Designs store. Simply click on the link under the card to be taken to the page where it can be found.

Challenge #69

 Optional Twist: 

SAY IT WITH A SENTIMENT


If you want the chance to win this month's featured paper pack, be sure to use a SENTIMENT or WORD ART (lettering) as the focus of your card. You are welcome to also use an image on your card BUT the sentiment should have equal billing to qualify for the paper pack draw!
