Challenge #69: Opt. Twist…SAY IT WITH A SENTIMENT

Welcome Christmas Crafters!  It is the first day of a brand new month and it is time for our newest link up. It is a little disheartening to think that we're entering fall and things are still so crazy. While some areas are doing a little better, others are so much worse.Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to all those people enduring difficult situations and/or loss as this pandemic and other serious issues rage on throughout the world. While it is difficult, we need to keep our spirits up and thinking about Christmas and the magic of the season, usually helps to bolster one's mood. Let's hope that also translates to making Christmas cards!

Whether you are finally looking to get a start on your Christmas and other December Holiday card pile or you already have a number of cards completed, 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...

Challenge #69

 Optional Twist: 


If you want the chance to win this month's featured paper pack, be sure to use a SENTIMENT or WORD ART (lettering) as the focus of your card. You are welcome to also use an image on your card BUT the sentiment should have equal billing to qualify for the paper pack draw! 

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 a collection of Christmas Sentiment Sets from this month's sponsor, Décosse's Dynamite Doodles. You simply need to follow the twist if you'd like a chance to win this month's featured digital paper pack, Sentimentally…Christmas (you can see a preview for this set by clicking HERE).
Now some of you may have recognized the name of the sponsor--Décosse's Dynamite Doodles. For those of you who don't know, Décosse's Dynamite Doodles is the label that I design under. Once a year I like to provide both the alternate prize and the main prize for the challenge. And on that note, for those of you who are unfamiliar, it is time to learn a little bit more about my brand...

Are you interested in digital sentiments, papers and other embellishments? How about a badge made especially for your blog? If these are items you are interested in, you are going to want to check out Décosse's Dynamite Doodles. My name is Lisa and with over 200+ posts of freebies to choose from, and new ones added often, I just might have what you are looking for. Along with the freebies I offer, I also create blog badges and digital kits for sale. Additionally, I have also been excited to have been able to sponsor a number of giveaways and challenges at other blogs.
So, if you have the time, come and take a look. There is always inspiration to be found among my many different features. I'd love for you to pop by and visit me. I hope you have a blast!
