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). 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, time to get down to the business of our latest 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. At the midway I'll simply post a reminder about the link up. 
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 Décosse'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!

Talking about Scribbles Designs, it is time to refresh ourselves with the details of this returning sponsor…
Looking for a unique image or sentiment? Well then! Head on over to Scribbles Designs and check out Sandy's world of her funky imagination and quirky characters. Sandy has loved art, drawing, water colouring and doodling for many years... and with the digital image world she can now share it with all of you. Brrr (Penguin) was her first main character and her other quirky images followed not long after. We hope you enjoy the endearing images available in the store and add Sandy's images to your digital stamp collections.

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

If everything goes according to plan, one of our outstanding winner announcements will be posted soon (I promise, it is on my list of things to do!). Be sure to join us again on December 15th when I'll pop in with a reminder for this month's link up. Other special posts may be published throughout the month.
