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! Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canadians and Happy 4th of July to all of our American readers.
Now it is time to continue with the purpose for this post. I'm flabbergasted that it is already the start of July. That means that today, we are officially entering the second half of the year already! If you happen to send out a lot of cards during the holiday season and haven't started your pile yet, it is time to get cracking! If you've been slowly working on your pile, congratulations for getting an early start. Whichever category you fall into, I hope that you'll continue with the quest to work on all those Christmas and other December Holiday cards needed for year end AND share them with us here on 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 #90


Our theme, as always, is ANYTHING GOES CHRISTMAS (or in celebration of other December holidays). Since many challenges have a Christmas in July theme, we're not having an optional twist this month and strictly keeping it Anything Goes as long as it is still Christmas themed.

Link up two cards and earn a free paper each month or enter any card for a chance to win your choice of TWO Christmas or Winter themed mini kits of digital papers from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles.

Here is a preview of July'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. 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 July
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 July 15th, for our midway post when the Merry Maidens will be here to share their awesome cards. If everything goes according to plan, I will get the next winner announcement posted as soon as possible. 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!

We look forward to seeing you participate!
