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 Décosse'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:

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.

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. Be sure to follow us through Bloglovin' so you don't miss a thing!



We look forward to seeing you participate!
