Challenge #78 Midway: Opt. Twist…Merry ChristMOUSE

Welcome back crafters! It is the 15th of the month and that means it is time for the midway of our current challenge. I hope that you and your families all continue to stay well in the various regions that you reside. Apologies that I haven't had the chance to get the winner announcement done yet. Once again, it has been another one of those months! Hopefully it will be out shortly. Hey, at least I'm still getting them out in the same month right now. That is a plus as far as I'm concerned. ­čśť

As we are halfway through the month of June, it is time to see what the Merry Maidens have been up to with their sweet images from Hetty Clare, our guest sponsor this month!
Clicking on the DT names will take you to the individual blogs where you can check out the details for all these wonderful cards. 
 
If you are interested in purchasing the sponsor's image featured in a particular card, you can click on the link indicated below the card to head to the page in the Hetty Clare store where it can be found.

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 June. Below you will find 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, ornaments and other creative projects in the past, we've sadly had to disqualify them.


Challenge #78

 Optional Twist: Merry ChristMOUSE

If you want the chance to win this month's featured paper pack, feature ONE OR MORE MICE on your card.
  
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 TWO images from this month's sponsor, Hetty Clare. You simply need to follow the twist if you'd like a chance to win this month's featured digital paper pack, Merry ChristMOUSE (you can see a preview for this set by clicking HERE).
 

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 twist 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). I have provided a summary of the most important rules in the right sidebar.


If you would like a say in determining which digital paper will be offered to those who link up a minimum of two cards this month, be sure to vote in our poll. Click HERE to head there now.

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

Vote for June's Free Digi Paper!

 Hey folks. It is the first of the month and that means our new Link Up has started. As such, it is time to vote on the digi paper from this month's paper pack that will be offered to those linking up two cards.
 
June's set is called Merry ChristMOUSE. This month's set features four different scenes with one or more mice in them--a male with a truck that has gifts and a tree in the back; a female outside of a house at night surrounded by trees and a snowman; a male holding some parcels, delivering a letter to Santa; and a male and female skating on a frozen pond out in the forest at evening time. There is also a starry sky paper and a snowy background paper with trees on the bottom. Check out the preview... 
 

Everyone who links up a minimum of two cards during the month of June 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 who has followed the twist will earn the full set of papers.

If you would like a say in determining which one of these papers will be offered to those who link up a minimum of two cards this month, be sure to vote in our poll below. If there is a tie or no votes are cast, an executive decision will be made as to which paper is offered.


DIGI PAPER POLL
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 June. Poll will be open until June 30th, 11:59 p.m. ET. 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. PLEASE NOTE: The middle papers are shrunk to show you what the majority of the full paper looks like.   

 


Don't forget to join June's link up!

Hope to see you there!

Challenge #76 Winner Announcement

Hello there to all our Christmas crafting friends!  I'm popping in today to share the winners and our top three Stocking Stuffers from Challenge #76 (Red & Gold). I hope that you and your families continue to stay safe and healthy out there in your various locations in our world. 

April saw us with 52 entries added to our link up. Right now, it is time to get on with the finding out who our winners are.

Are you one of those lucky peeps?! Let's find out!



 
Loopyloo, you are the winner of a $10 gift certificate (for digital items only) from Taylormade Cards 4 U, our guest sponsor for April (chosen by random.org based on all eligible entries).
 
http://taylormadecards4u.com/

Loopyloo, please send an email to the_12_moc_linkup {at} outlook {dot} com (or click HERE to bring the address up in your email program), with the subject, "12MoC Challenge #76 WINNER" to make arrangements to receive your prize. Please note that it may take me a while to get back to you. Thank you for your patience. In the interim, please grab a copy of the winner badge below for your blog.
 


 
Next, it is time to get on with showcasing the top three. With so many wonderful entries to choose from, it is always such a difficult task for the design team. For Challenge #76, Mandy, Susan, and Lisa (myself) are presenting our favourite cards. So, without further ado, here are the Stocking Stuffers for April:

 
Congrats to our top three Stocking Stuffers! Pat, Dawn and Rosi, please grab a copy of the badge below for your blog.






Everyone who links up two cards each month is eligible to receive a free digital paper. Papers from last month have previously been sent out. If you were expecting one but haven't received it yet, please leave me a comment and I'll look into it for you.

The individuals who linked up a minimum of two cards each during the month of APRIL qualifying them to receive the digital paper from that month, will receive the Holly Patterned Paper which received the most votes. I have included the watermark of the paper, below... 

 
To all of you who linked up during April, thanks ever so much! We are so happy to have all of you with us and hope that you'll continue to link up your holiday cards as you begin or continue to work on your stockpile for 2021!!! Papers will be sent to the email address that qualifying participants used when they added their cards to the Link Up, as soon as I can manage!

As always, we are going to have a random draw from all the entries that followed the twist and give out a set of six digital papers to one lucky individual. The papers are all made so why not have an extra prize! Here is the watermark for the full set... 
 
 
 
The winner of the  
 Misc. Christmas: Red & Gold
from Challenge #
76 is
#43. DEANNE

(chosen by random.org based on all eligible entries) 

Deanne, as you linked up a minimum of two cards this month and were entitled to one of the papers from this set anyway, I'll just send out the full mini kit to you at the same time that I send out the individual paper to those who earned it this month.
 
Well folks, that is it for this one! If you haven't already, be sure to check out our current challenge going on now, with the Optional Twist this month of "Gnomes". There is still a little over a week to go and you can find out all the details along with the link up, by clicking HERE. Then be sure to join us on June 1st when we'll be back with our latest link up!

Until then,

I hope that you and your families all continue to stay well in the various regions that you reside. Apologies that I haven't had the chance to get the winner announcement done yet. It has been one of those months I'm afraid! Hopefully it will be out before next weekend.

As we are halfway through the month of May, it is time to see what the Merry Maidens have been up to with their lovely images from Sheepski Designs, our guest sponsor this month!
