Challenge #36 Midway: Optional Theme...Christmas Cupcakes

Hello and happy Friday folks! It is the 15th of the month, and that means it is time to see what the Merry Maidens have been up to with their fabulous images from Limited Runs, our guest sponsor this month!

All of the following images can be found in the Cupcakes Category section of the Limited Runs store. Click HERE to head to that specific section.

Thank you so much to this month's generous sponsor for providing such incredible images for the team to work with! Please pop over and pay them a visit when you have the chance! You are sure to find something to add to your wish list while you are there!

While team members had the option of working with any of my Décosse's Dynamite Doodles papers, I did create a special set called Sweet Convections 1: Cupcakes. It is more of a generic set this month to match with our theme. 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 below.

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. EST. Please note that you can get a better idea of what the actual paper looks like by bringing the preview ABOVE up in the lightbox.

Now check out what the Merry Maidens 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 ANY type of Christmas or holiday card you've made for a chance to win this month's Paper Kit, or link up two of them 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 #36

Optional Theme: Christmas Cupcakes
What would Christmas be without all of its tasty treats?! There are so many different kinds of goodies: cookies, cakes, puddings, etc. In the past few years, Christmas themed cupcakes have become quite popular. They come in an abundance of flavours and can be decorated in a variety of ways.
That is why this month, in order to have a chance to win the prize from our guest sponsor, be sure to have a cupcake of some nature on your card. It can be the image itself or in the paper(s) you use but it must be featured prominently. 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. 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 different kind of link up where we have both an Anything Goes Christmas or other December Holiday 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 #36 by clicking HERE.

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

  • If I can pull it off, I'll try and get another winner announcement done before the year is out. 
  • Pat will be back on December 23rd with another special Holiday Traditions & Recipe post.
  • Our new challenge will start on January 1st.
  • 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!
