Challenge #7 Midway: Optional Theme: Holiday Traditions Ornament Exchange

Hello everyone, it is Monica here with you today! We have reached the midway point of Challenge #7.  Just before we start, I wanted to remind everyone that we are currently holding a DT Call and you have until the 20th of this month to get us your application. You can find all the information HERE.

So lets see what the Merry Maidens have been up to with their images from Robin's Fetish Digital Stamps, 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 over at Robin's Fetish Digital Stamps store where each of these images can be found.

Putting Up The Tree

A Bell For Christmas

Christmas Ornaments

While team members had the option of working with any of Lisa's Décosse's Dynamite Doodles papers, she did create a special set called It's Ornamental, based on the theme for this challenge.  Check out the preview...

Everyone who links up a minimum of two cards during the month of July 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 specific paper 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.

As Lisa mentioned during the start post, we're currently in transition with two members down so some of the team had the time to create a second card to help out.   While two of our Merry Maidens helped out at the start, this time around one of our Sleigh Belles, Helen, pitched in.  Check out what they came up with to inspire you. 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...

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 July.  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...

Please remember that this is a CARDS ONLY link up.  While we've had some lovely tag entries, we've sadly had to disqualify them.

Optional Theme:  Holiday Traditions Ornament Exchange
Holidays are all about traditions. Getting together with family and friends for an ornament exchange is one many people celebrate. It's fun adding a new ornament to your Christmas tree each year, so lets add a new Christmas Card "with ornaments" this month.

In order to have a chance to win the prize from our wonderful guest sponsor this month, make sure that your card follows the ornament theme. 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 three digital stamps from our sponsor Robin's Fetish.

If you are new to this unique challenge, you can find out the impetus behind why Lisa 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 #7 by clicking HERE.
