Challenge #29 Midway: Optional Theme....Cute Christmas

It is the 15th of the month, and that means it is time to see what the Merry Maidens have been up to with their sweet images from Mari Digis, our guest sponsor this month!

Clicking on any of the image names will take you 
to their spot in the Mari Digis store.

While team members had the option of working with any of my Décosse's Dynamite Doodles papers, I did create a special set called Cute Christmas. Check out the preview...

Everyone who links up a minimum of two cards during the month of May will earn ONE of the digital papers from this set. The specific paper up for grabs will be shown during the winner announcement post. Additionally, one random winner will earn the full set of papers.

Have your say in determining which paper will be offered to those who link up a minimum of two cards this month by completing the poll below.

Please click "like" to choose the ONE paper that you would like offered up to participants who link up a minimum of two cards during the month of May. Poll will be open until May 31st, 11:59 p.m. EST. Please note that you can get a better idea of what the actual paper looks like by bringing the preview ABOVE up in the lightbox.

 Now check out what the Merry Maidens came up with to inspire you. Clicking on the names will take you to the individual blogs where you can check out the details for all these wonderful cards.

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 May. Whether you choose to link up two Anything Goes themed cards simply to earn your free paper this month, or you choose to also follow the optional theme to have a chance at the sponsor's prize, it is completely up to you! 

Here is a refresher of the details for this challenge (theme description created by Pat)...

Please remember that this is a CARDS ONLY link up. While we've had some lovely tag entries in the past, we've sadly had to disqualify them.

Challenge #29

Optional Theme: Cute Christmas
What I love about Christmas Day is the endless squeals of delight and sighs of satisfaction. The day is filled with "awww. isn't that cute" as toddlers have more fun with unwrapping a present than the presents themselves. A child's innocent kiss of thanks for presents all around the room provide smiles all around, and the reactions of those receiving presents just melts my heart. There are so many cute elements of the holiday that we just can't resist offering an optional theme of Cute Christmas this month. Whether you create your cards with cute images or use a cute sentiment, this month's cards will bring smiles and sighs of pleasure to all.

In order to have a chance to win the prize from our wonderful guest sponsor this month, make sure that your overall card can be described as cute (i.e. cute image, cute papers, cute embellishments, etc.).  IMPORTANT: If you do follow the optional theme, be sure to add FT after your name so that we include you in the draw for the prize.

Remember, you don't need to follow the theme to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month, have a chance to win a special mini kit of digi papers and have your name thrown into the year end draw for some extra digital goodies. You only need to follow the theme if you want a chance to win this month's sponsored prize of the same three digis used by team members, provided by Mari Digis.

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 option and an optional theme 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).

You can find the Challenge Details Summary along with the link up for 
Challenge #29 by clicking HERE.

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

  • If I can pull it off, I'll try and get another winner announcement done.
  • Our new challenge will start on June 1st.
  • 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!
