Challenge #89: ANYTHING GOES CHRISTMAS with the Optional Twist…PLAIDS

Welcome Christmas Crafters! It is the first of the month and time for our new challenge! I hope that you and your families continue to stay well and safe out there in your part of the world!
 
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, it is time to get down to the business of our latest challenge. Here is what you need to know...
 

Challenge #89

  ANYTHING GOES with the 

Optional Twist: PLAIDS

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 PLAID somewhere in your design. You could use a plaid paper on your card or you could paper piece part of your image with a plaid design. 

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 Décosse's Dynamite Doodles. Following the twist is simply for fun. 

Here is a preview of June's paper for those adding TWO cards to this month's link up:
 
 
 
Now check out what the Sleigh Belles came up with to inspire you. Christine will be joining us at the midway this month. Clicking on the DT names will take you to the individual blogs where you can check out the specific details for these wonderful cards.

So what are you waiting for? It is time to link up your Christmas and other holiday cards for June
 
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.

Please join us again on June 15th, for our midway post when the Merry Maidens will be here to share their awesome cards. I will do my best to get caught up on at least one of the outstanding winner announcements as soon as I can manage. Your continued patience is appreciated. Other special posts may be published throughout the month. Be sure to sign up to have our posts delivered by email or follow us through Bloglovin' so you don't miss a thing!
