It is hard to believe that there are only three months until the start of December. In no time at all we'll be needing a selection of Christmas and other December Holiday cards. Whether you are continuing your stash or just starting, we'd love to have you join us and add your cards to our Link Up for a chance to win some goodies!
If you are new to this unique challenge, you can find out the impetus behind why I created it under the 'Introductions' tab and all the details you need to know in order to participate, by checking out the 'Challenge Details' tab (both tabs located at the top of the blog). For your convenience, a summary of the most important rules can be found in the right sidebar under the heading 'Basic Rules Summary'.
Right now, time to get down to the business of our latest challenge. Here is what you need to know...
Optional Twist: Kraft Paper
If you want the chance to win this month's featured paper pack, be sure to use KRAFT PAPER in your card design.
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, A Krafty Christmas.
Talking about Pattie's Creations, it is time to refresh ourselves with the details of this returning sponsor…
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.
