One for the Guys at the 12 Months of Christmas Challenge Blog

Can I get a Merry Christmas out there?! At the 12 Months of Christmas, we try to inspire crafters around the world to start each year off building their stash of holiday cards. We've reached the midpoint of 2018, so by the end of this month's challenge, you should all have a lovely stack of twelve cards. That's assuming you all link up two cards each month to get that free digital paper from Lisa at Decosse's Dynamite Doodles!! This month she made a set of textured papers called Texture ime, Leathers 1. Here's a preview:
This month, our sponsor is Sheepski Designs. Andrea has been generous, giving our teams three images each to play with (and I am creating in both teams, mwahaha). Today's DT make showcases a digital image called Snowman Selfie. It was just as fun to color up the snowmen as it was to create this card!
I also printed out two of Decosse's Dynamite Doodles' papers from the following sets. I used Turquoise from this set:
and Snowy Scene from this one:
Back to the challenge at the 12 Months of Christmas. You have until the end of June to create a holiday card. Again, if you create 2 this month, you'll receive a paper from the Texture Time Paper Kit above. You can go to the main blog and vote for your favorite paper.
In order to have a chance to win the prize from our guest sponsor, we want you to create a card that would be considered MASCULINE. Be sure to add FT after your name so that we include you in the draw for the prize.
Keep in mind though, that you don't need to follow the theme to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month or for a chance to win the featured paper set. You only need to follow the theme if you want a chance to win this month's sponsored prize of three images from the SheepSki Designs store.       
Like what you see from our sponsor? She also has a group on Facebook you can join, which offers Anything Goes challenges and freebies. I just joined - who doesn't like Anything Goes and Freebies?!
