Challenge #6 Midway: Home for the Holidays...Vintage Theme

Hello everyone! We have reached the midway point of Challenge #6.  Just before we start, I wanted to mention that we'll be having a DT Call very shortly.  Same as last time, we'll be offering up a free paper for everyone who helps to promote our call, so be sure to keep your eye out for it!

For now though, it is time to see what the Merry Maidens have been up to with their images from Lunagirl, our guest sponsor this month!

Check out all the wonderful images that the Merry Maidens got to work with this month for the mid point of the challenge.  Clicking on any of the image watermarks will take you to their page in the Lunagirl store where each of these images can be found.

Christmas Birds & Holly Rounds

While team members had the option of working with any of my Décosse's Dynamite Doodles papers, I did create a special set called A Grungy Christmas, based on the theme for this challenge.  Check out the preview...

Everyone who links up a minimum of two cards during the month of June will earn ONE of the digital papers from this set.  The specific paper up for grabs will be shown during the winner announcement post.  Additionally, one random winner will earn the full set of papers.  

Have your say in determining which colour will be offered to those who link up a minimum of two cards this month by completing the poll in the sidebar on the top right hand side.
Now check out what the Merry Maidens came up with to inspire you.  This time around, Edwina had the time to make three and Kemly created two for us!  Monica, my Co-coordinator, and I also had the chance to make a card for the midway of the challenge.  Clicking on the names will take you to the individual blogs where you can check out the details for all these wonderful cards.  However please note that there is no link to Julie's card this month.  Unfortunately, Julie's blog has disappeared.due to the unscrupulous activities of a hacker.  Don't fret though, Julie is working hard to create a new blog and should be back online shortly!

Now while we are a card making challenge, I wanted to show you this great garland that one of our team members created using images from our sponsor this month.  It is a beautiful decoration but please remember, that for the challenge, we only accept cards--they can be handmade OR digital, it is up to you--but cards only please.

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 June.  Whether you choose to link up two Anything Goes themed cards simply to earn your free paper this month, or you choose to also follow the optional theme to have a chance at the sponsor's prize, it is completely up to you!

Here is a refresher of the details for this challenge...

Optional Theme:  Home for the Holidays VINTAGE THEME
Do you remember Christmas time when you were little? All of us come from different eras and hopefully we all have some fond memories of Christmases past. The look of ornaments, decorations, wrapping paper and cards have definitely undergone changes in their appearances throughout the years. Have you stayed traditional to your roots or have you moved on with the times? Regardless of your style, this month we want to see a card that reflects the Christmases of old.

In order to have a chance to win the prize from our wonderful guest sponsor this month, make sure that your card has a vintage theme. So, break out those classic images, grungy papers and anything else that will give your card a vintage look. If you do follow the optional theme, be sure to add FT after your name so that we include you in the draw for the prize.

Remember, you don't need to follow the theme to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month, and have your name thrown into the year end draw for some extra digital goodies. You only need to follow the theme if you want a chance to win this month's sponsored prize of a $15.00 gift card from Lunagirl.

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 unique kind of link up where we have both an anything goes Christmas option and an optional theme 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).

You can find the Challenge Details Summary along with the link up for Challenge #6 by clicking HERE.
