Challenge #71: Opt. Twist…FOR THE BOYS

Welcome Christmas Crafters!  It is the first day of a brand new month and it is time for our newest link up. It is hard to believe that there are just a little under two months to go before the big day is here. Unfortunately, this year, Christmas for many will be much different than usual given the new restrictions and lockdowns coming into place in some areas in an effort to curb the continued spread of the virus and give our overwhelmed health care system a break. We certainly live in a much different world than we did a year ago, don't we?!

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 #71

 Optional Twist: FOR THE BOYS

If you want the chance to win this month's featured paper pack, in honour of Movember, create a card suitable for a MALE (if you are unfamiliar with what Movember is all about, please click HERE to learn about it).

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 $10.00 gift voucher to the Limited Runs store. You simply need to follow the twist if you'd like a chance to win this month's featured digital paper pack, Geometric Man (you can see a preview for this set by clicking HERE).
Talking about Limited Runs, it is time to refresh ourselves with the details of this returning sponsor…
Limited Runs is a great little shop for all your digital needs we have tons to play with and even better they are all set up for those on a budget with almost all images for only $2.00 and lots of hidden sets and deals in the shop to save you money !!! Who doesn't like to save $$$. We have a huge Collection for the Holidays and also lots of other cuties and not so cute images. We also have cupcakes, coffee, and for those that like the darker side monsters and even a eyeball cupcake.

Limited Runs is now on Facebook too with a Freebie for every 50 Followers
(find it HERE ). We also have a Monthly Progressive Challenge Running too. You can find the details HERE. While the challenge itself is on FB, don't worry if you don't have Facebook. You can email me a link to your site showcasing your project using the image and I will add you into the challenge so you can win too. The Progressive challenge works in 3 rounds. So there is a freebie available every 1st round just email me if you want to play.

Now check out what the Sleigh Belles came up with to inspire you. Clicking on the DT names will take you to the individual blogs where you can check out the specific details for all these wonderful cards.
