Challenge 120 - Use a Sentiment for Any December Holiday

Welcome to Challenge 120
Nov 20 - Dec 2
Theme: Use a Sentiment appropriate for Any December holiday.  
Could be Christmas, Hanukkah, St Nickolas Day, etc.  

 Quick NOTE: Julie posted the winners last night, 
so if you want to see some talent - [or see if you won!]
just click here for the WINNERS' POST!

First thing I want to share with you is this week's 
FREEBIE SENTIMENT
created by Ginny H from our Design Team!

You are welcome to copy and paste any of the sentiments 
for your personal use.  
Two things I would ask of you are 
to give credit to Ginny H if you use her word art and 
leave a comment for her to acknowledge 
her time and effort.  
I have linked her name above to her website, or you can leave a comment on this post if you like!  Thank you!
As incentive for you to use one of the sentiments on one or more of your entries, if you put a GH (for Ginny H) behind your name on your entry, we will choose a project to SPOTLIGHT 
at the start of our next challenge.  
A second Freebie will be offered next week - 
so come back and collect that one too!  ENJOY!


We are so lucky this challenge to have two sponsors providing images for our DT and prizes for our winners!  Thank you to you both for your generous support!

Challenge 119 - Week Two

Welcome to the second week of
"Put the Sentiment on a Tag"
Challenge 119
Nov 11-18
Just a heads-up - we have multiple entries so far in the challenge that are NOT following the theme  Put the Sentiment on a Tag!   It appears that another blog inadvertently listed our theme incorrectly as 'use a 2 or 3 word sentiment' - [that was the last challenge!].  I am so sorry for those of you who have entered such beautiful work based on this misinformation.    We [and they] recommend that you always double check the theme and the rules when you go to enter the challenge at the web site.
