Challenge #93 Winner Announcement

Hello there to all our Christmas crafting friends!  Woop, Woop! The month that you have all been working your tail off for is finally here. Hopefully you have managed to make enough cards to get you through the holidays. Me? Well, I haven't had the chance to make a single card yet. Yup, it has been one of those years again.
 
Anyway, I hope that you and your families continue to stay safe and healthy out there in your various locations in our world and that you have a fabulous holiday season!
 
I have managed to find the time to whip out one more outstanding winner announcement this month. That means I just have one more to catch up on. Okay, if I am being realistic, by the time I probably get to it, there will be two, but I am certainly seeing the light at the end of the tunnel...and they are multi-coloured and blinking on and off. 😂 So, right now it is time to share the winners and our top three Stocking Stuffers from Challenge #93 (Anything Goes CHRISTMAS with the Opt. Twist of a Colour Challenge).
 
October saw us with 91 entries added to our link up. Wowee! If it is 91 in October, I can't wait to see how many people joined in for November. Just like last month, I think this is a record number for link ups during the month of October!
 
Right now, it is time to get on with finding out who our winners for October are. Are you one of those lucky peeps?! Let's find out!
 



 
Emma, you are the winner of your choice of TWO Christmas or Winter themed mini kits of digital papers from DĂ©cosse's Dynamite Doodles. (chosen by random.org based on all eligible entries).


Emma, 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 #93 WINNER" to make arrangements to receive your prize. Please note that it may take me a while to get back to you so 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. So, without further ado, here are the Stocking Stuffers for October:


 
Congrats to our top three Stocking Stuffers! Marjut, Kris and Erika, 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. Paper for September has now 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 OCTOBER qualifying them to receive the digital paper from that month, will receive the Green Stripes Patterned Paper. I have included the preview of this paper below... 
 
 
To all of you who linked up during October, 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 2022!!! Though if you are just starting, you need to get a move on it.😉 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 (though please note that at this point, it will probably not be until the new year unless I suddenly find a big gap in my schedule to pull it off!).

 
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 "Anything Goes Christmas". There is still over two weeks to go and you can find out all the details along with the link up, by clicking HERE.
 
Please join us again January 8th when we'll be back with our first link up of 2023! As mentioned in previous posts, we are starting a week later than we typically would in order to give myself and the team a bit of extra time during the holidays.

Wishing you all the best during this 'most wonderful time of year'!

Until next time,

Challenge #95 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 is taking December off, there are no DT samples in this post.

For today, I am just popping in to remind you of the details of our current challenge. Here is what you need to know...
 

Challenge #95

 Optional Twist: ANYTHING GOES

The Sleigh Belles and Merry Maidens have been working hard all year to get their Christmas cards created. As such, I gave the team the opportunity to take a much deserved break from having to post this month.
 
The twist this month is simply Anything Goes. Since the holidays are upon us, I'm offering up an extra prize this month. So, as long as you link up a card with any sort of Christmas theme, you will be eligible to win your choice of TWO Christmas or Winter themed mini kits of digital papers from DĂ©cosse's Dynamite Doodles. Additionally, a random winner will have a chance to win $10.00 worth of digital stamps from the Scribbles Designs store (winner's choice).  Also, as usual, if you link up TWO cards you'll have the opportunity to earn a free digital paper.   

Here is a preview of December's paper for those adding two cards to this month's link up: 
 
 
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.


You can find the link up for
Challenge #95 by clicking HERE.


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

We will be back in the new year with new challenges! PLEASE NOTE THAT our first link up for the year isn't scheduled until JANUARY 8TH. This will give the team and myself an extra week to enjoy the holidays. 
 
We fondly hope that you and your families have a blessed holiday!!! We will see you all again in 2023!

We look forward to seeing you participate!

Challenge #95: Opt. Twist…Anything Goes CHRISTMAS

Hello Crafters! Can you believe it?! In less than 24 days, it will be Christmas! Once again, another year has come and almost gone at a ridiculous speed! While 2022 has been somewhat better than last year, our world continues on the road to recovery and many people are still having a difficult time. A new war breaking out certainly did not help things. It is my fond hope that things will continue to improve on the health front, that politicians around the world will find common ground, and that 2023 will be a better year for all!
 
As it is the first day of December, it is time for our final link up of 2022 to get under way! Given how little time is left until the BIG DAY itself is here, it is imperative to get all those last minute Christmas and other December Holiday cards completed before we run out of time! To provide you with some extra incentive to get your cards completed, we have some lovely prizes available! So, why not join us for your chance to win?!
 
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).

Challenge #94 Midway: ANYTHING GOES CHRISTMAS with the Optional Twist…Use Patterned Paper

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.
 
Right now, as we are halfway through the month of November, it is time to see what the Merry Maidens have been up to! Clicking on the DT names will take you to the individual blogs where you can check out the details for all these wonderful cards. As this post [hopefully] publishes, I'm in a car travelling back home from a week away with my parents, celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary with them. Since I don't have an editing program with layers on my mom's computer, I was unable to frame these pretty cards, as I normally would.

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 November. 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 #94

  ANYTHING GOES with the 

Optional Twist: Use Patterned Paper

Our theme, as always, is Anything Goes Christmas (or in celebration of other December holidays). If you want to challenge yourself, you can always follow our optional twist of: Use PATTERNED Paper. Stripes; dots; floral; with characters on it such a Santa, snowmen, elves or animals; or, any other type of pattern, it is totally up to you!  

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 your choice of TWO Christmas or Winter themed mini kits of digital papers from DĂ©cosse's Dynamite Doodles. Following the twist is simply for fun.

Here is a preview of November's paper for those adding TWO cards to this month's link up. Well, technically it is two papers as I couldn't decide whether I liked the green background better or the red one. I figured there might be people out there that would like the green and others that would like the red, so this month's recipients will get both:

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

I'll hopefully be publishing the winner announcement from Challenge #92 sometime in the next two weeks (okay so to be honest, that is the goal but I don't know the likelihood of actually getting it done since I have just spent the last week away from home and now desperately have to try and catch up). Then, please join us on December 1st when we'll be back with our last link up of the year! Other special posts may be published throughout the month.
