June 24- July 7, 2022

Competition starts at 12am CST/Chicago which is also 6am UK on June 24th and will close at 12 am CST/Chicago or 6am UK on July 7th. Adjust accordingly to wherever you are in the world. 

We hope you find time to craft Christmas (winter holidays) with us!

Think of the creative possibilities: sheet music, use just the title, use part of a verse or chorus

Deck the Halls; Fa-La-La; Silent Night; Jingle Bells; Jingle Bell Rock; Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree; I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus; O Little Town of Bethlehem; and hundreds more.....

MTTCC's small world-wide design team always presents a variety of techniques, styles, and theme interpretations with their inspiration projects! 

We hope that these projects will spark your creativity and that you will join us during #37. The theme is not for the book or movie "The Christmas Carol" but for caroling songs and Christmas hymns sung during the winter holiday season. Use the Inlinkz tool address to submit your card's photo blog link. Bragging rights for Top 3 are possible. 


Note: submissions will be monitored by temporary manager Becca S in case we reach 50 submissions for this link-up. If and when we do and there is time remaining before the deadline, a 2nd address link will be edited in so that submissions can continue. Remember you can submit 3 different new projects for each theme challenge. 


We found time to craft Christmas at MTTCC! --the MTTCC design team and owner Shell S.

For others that missed out on this Christmas theme, Christmas is 6 months and about 1 day away!!!
