Challenge #84 Midway: Opt. Twist… Anything Goes CHRISTMAS

Hey folks. It is the middle of the month and that means there are still two weeks left in our current Link Up. Since the team had the option of taking December off, there are no DT samples in this post.

Both my parents are in the hospital with Covid right now and my dad was considered critical just yesterday morning. These past two weeks have been rather emotionally turbulent and I just don't have the time and energy to focus on much else. As a result, I'm afraid that the winner announcement is going to be later than I anticipated. We'll also be taking the month of January off but I'll post a reminder about that in the new year. If you have sent a message recently please know I will get to it as soon as I possibly can.

For today, I am just popping in to remind you of the details of our current challenge sponsored by Scribbles Designs.

Challenge #84

 Optional Twist: ANYTHING GOES

Since the holidays are upon us, I'm offering up a couple extra prizes this month. 

The twist this month is simply Anything Goes. So, as long as you link up a card with any sort of Christmas theme, you will be eligible to win this month's featured paper pack called A Touch of Frost: Mid-Tone Colours Collection Mini Kit (you can see a preview for this set by clicking HERE). Also, as usual, if you link up TWO cards you'll have the opportunity to earn a free digital paper from this set. You can click the link above to have your say in determining which paper will be given out to players this month.
Additionally, a random winner will have a chance to win $10.00 worth of digital stamps from the Scribbles Designs store (winner's choice).  
There will also be one prize of FIVE pre-selected Christmas and/or Winter themed digital stamps from Creative Bug Digital SnapShots awarded to one random winner.

Finally, as a thank you to all of our players, both new and long standing, I'm also drawing one random name from all the entries to win that person's choice of ONE mini kit selected from all the kits that were offered up this year to my team members. These are the same 12 kits that the individual paper given out each month during 2021, were selected from. If you would like to take a look at all the past kits designed this year, simply click on the word 'Poll' located in the Labels section at the bottom of the left sidebar. Then, simply scroll through all the polls for 2021.

So in summary, that is a total of FIVE different prizes for December's link up:
  • A Touch of Frost: Mid-Tone Colours Collection Mini Kit to one random winner chosen from all entries;
  • ONE free digi paper to those linking up TWO or more cards;
  • ONE mini kit, winner's choice from a selection of 12 kits to one random winner;
  • FIVE pre-selected Christmas and/or Winter themed digital stamps from Creative Bug Digital SnapShots awarded to one random winner; and
  • $10.00 worth of digital stamps from Scribbles Designs to one random winner.
Hopefully that will provide you all with some extra incentive to add your Christmas and other December holiday cards to our link up this month!

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 December.

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.
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.
