Playing Guidelines

We are an all-crafts Christmas challenge blog and welcome any and all kinds of handmade Christmas creations all year long using the featured Christmas BINGO Card. 

There will be a BINGO Card featured in each challenge and you will be required to use at least three items in any column under the B, I, N, G or O on your Christmas project. Note: This is not your typical BINGO card where you go up/down, left/right and diagonally. To make this more fun, you can only go up and down using the columns! And there is a FREE space in each column that you are welcome to utilize (or not)! You cannot mix and match columns - you can only use one letter. 

We are fairly liberal with most of our definitions. Some examples are:

  • Ribbon can be fabric ribbon or perhaps a die cut ribbon bow.
  • Glitter can be loose glitter, glittered cardstock or glittered brads/buttons.
  • Buttons can be 'real' plastic or glass buttons, or perhaps a stamped button or a chipboard button.
  • Tag can be a large stand-alone tag or a smaller tag used as an element on your card or layout.
  • Twine can be jute rope or crafting cord.
  • Stamped Image or Digital Image can be an image or a sentiment.
  • Enamel Dots can be any type of enamel embellishments (hearts, arrows, stars, etc.)
No Stamping, however, is literally no stamped images or sentiments, meaning no rubber/clear stamping or digis. If you have any questions about what's acceptable or not, please reach out to me via the Contact page. 

We host six challenges per year, and each challenge lasts approximately six weeks. All challenges are family-friendly Anything Christmas Goes. 

Our challenges go live at 4:00 AM Mountain Time on the 1st day of each odd month and run until 4:00 PM Mountain Time on the 15th day of the following month. 

Our winners are randomly chosen to give everyone an equal chance of winning, and our top picks are chosen on merit. Our winners and top picks are announced on the 1st of the month following the close of each challenge along with details of the new challenge. 

We do not solicit sponsorship so there are no prizes. We play for fun, and Winner and Top Pick badges are available to random winners and chosen top picks. 

You may enter up to EIGHT different projects in our challenges and you may combine our challenges with as many others as you wish. 

You must link your specific project post - not your entire blog - to our challenge via the link-up tool at the end of the challenge post. If the link-up tool happens to be down it is your responsibility to come back at a later time to link up your project. Leaving your link in a comment does not guarantee that your project will be considered for winner or top pick honors. 

We only accept blog entries. You must list our challenge in your blog post AND link back to our challenge. Projects entered via any other social media sites will not be eligible for winner or top pick honors and may be deleted from the gallery. 

No back-linking. Your project must be new and never posted to your blog or other social media prior to the start date of our challenge. 

No digitally-created projects. We want to see tangible handmade creations.
