Challenge #77: Opt. Twist…GNOMES

Welcome Christmas Crafters! It is the first day of a brand new month and time for our latest link up. I hope that you and your families continue to stay healthy during this difficult time in our lives. Let's hope that we'll be out of this crisis soon!
 
While Christmas may still be several months away, it is never too early to get started on all the Christmas and other December Holiday cards you are going to need when December finally rolls around! Whether you are just embarking on getting a start to your stash or you already have a few 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 #77

 Optional Twist: GNOMES

If you want the chance to win this month's featured paper pack, feature ONE OR MORE GNOMES 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 THREE images from this month's sponsor, Sheepski Designs. You simply need to follow the twist if you'd like a chance to win this month's featured digital paper pack, Gnome for the Holidays (you can see a preview for this set by clicking HERE).
 
Talking about Sheepski Designs, it is time to refresh ourselves with the details of this returning sponsor…

Hi I'm Andrea Norris, creator and owner of SheepSki Designs - living in Leeds, Yorkshire in the UK, working full time as a Management Accountant, currently working on 4 design teams and an obsessive crafter and creator of cards. I love anything arty. I've always drawn stuff, for as long as I can remember. In my younger days I sold a few watercolour paintings. I love creating canvases mixed media canvasses with flowers.
I finally found software I could gel with in December 2015. January 2016 a challenge team I worked on was short of a designer's images to create with so I drew some. I opened my shop a month later so I could sponsor challenges and give something back to the crafting world, to the lovely ladies who have supported me on my journey.

I've a Facebook group and blog where I hold challenges and I'm now starting to look at inviting guest designers.


Welcome to my world!
