Challenge #24 Midway: Optional Theme...Welcome to the North Pole

Hello there folks! It is time to get on with the midway for Challenge #24. Just 10 more days and the big day is here.

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

Check out the beautiful images that the team worked with this month for the midway of the challenge. Clicking on any of the image watermarks will take you to the page they are located on in the Limited Runs store...

Balancing Elf (Christmas, section: 41-50)

Santa Headshot (Christmas, section: 71-80)

Penguin Cupcake Set (Christmas, section: 21-30)

Vintage Santa (Christmas, section: 71-80)

While team members had the option of working with any of my Décosse's Dynamite Doodles papers, I did create a special set called Welcome to the North Pole.  Check out the preview...

Everyone who links up a minimum of two cards during the month of December 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 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.
I'm also attempting something new here that might get more poll participation. I've built in a link up right here that allows you to 'like' a particular paper. I'm still going to keep the poll for now as I have no idea whether or not this will work.

Please click "like" to choose the ONE paper that you would like offered up to participants who link up a minimum of two cards during the month of December. Poll will be open until December 31st, 11:59 p.m.

Now check out what the Merry Maidens and my Co-coordinator Pat came up with to inspire you. 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 December. 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 in the past, we've sadly had to disqualify them.

Challenge #24

Optional Theme: Welcome to the North Pole
Welcome to the North Pole. On the left is the road that will take you to Santa's Workshop. Follow to the right and you'll find the Penguin Pavilion. Unfortunately, its Santa's busy season and with just 24 days until the big event, the elves are just too busy to take you on a tour. However, you are more than welcome to take a look around by yourself. Just be sure not to touch anything or you will end up on Santa's naughty list. Oh, and be sure to grab a cup of cocoa and a candy cane from Mrs Claus before you head back home.
In order to have a chance to win the prize from our wonderful guest sponsor this month, be sure to include an element that might be found in the North Pole (fantasy version of course). Examples include: elf type images, Santa, Mrs Claus, presents, toys, images that have a sign for the North Pole in them, penguins, reindeer, polar bears, etc.  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 $10.00 gift certificate from Limited Runs.

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 #24 by clicking HERE.

 Don't Forget, if everything goes according to plan...

  • Be sure to join us on December 23rd when Pat will be here to share a Christmas Tradition.
  • Next up it will be time for our new challenge to start on January 1st.
  • Then, the winners from Challenge #23 will hopefully be posted on January 8th.
  • 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!

We look forward to seeing you participate!
