FINALLY!!! 1st FREEBIE of 2019!

Hmmm...I haven't done a very good job so far of handing out holiday themed freebies yet this year already having missed Valentine's Day and Family Day. I tried sooooooo hard to get this one uploaded last night in honour of St. Patrick's Day before heading off the computer but alas it wasn't meant to be.

However, in my defence, I have been fighting two back to back viruses roughly the last five weeks which of course has put me behind in everything again. Just to let you know, I have actually started a love themed paper which I'll post as soon as it is done. Thankfully, love is in fashion all year around too. However, before I get any further behind it is time for a St. Patrick's Day themed paper…or well a belated St. Patrick's Day one.

Wether you are Irish or simply Irish at heart, here is a new St. Patrick's Day themed freebie for you. Thankfully, it also shares some spring colours so it can be useful for any number of springtime projects.

Hope you like it!

This digital paper is 3600 x 3600 pixels, in jpg format and published at 300 dpi. Credits include: Rhonda Tonkinson (Eyeinspire) and Elif Sahin, Pixel Scrapper. To grab it, click the download button to be taken to a download location. In the zip folder you will find a copy of the paper, its preview sheet, the credit information and my terms of use which are standard to all my folders.

Now it is time for me to get back to work on my newest Christmas mini kit for April's 12 Months of Christmas Link Up.

Hope you all have a great week ahead!

Until next time,

The 12 Days of Christmas Quest: All Papers Mailed!


Hey folks! Given that it is the end of February, I would hope to heck this would be done already and thankfully I can say it has been. I actually wanted to post this and let everyone know a few weeks ago when I mailed out the last of the papers for The 12 Days of Christmas but unfortunately I ended up getting a bad virus that set me back a bit, not allowing me to publish this post until now.

Here are the stats for this past year:
  • a total of 15 people participated during at least two days of the event.
  • 9 people completed all 12 Days of the quest.
  • 2 people came in just under and completed 11 Days.
  • 1 person got the first 8 days done.
  • 1 person got 6 days finished.
  • 2 people got four of the days complete.
  • 1 person got 2 days completed.

Thanks for letting me know about one of your favourite designers. There were a couple stores that a haven't been to in quite a while and there were a few that I had never heard of before! I now have some new places to check out!

As far as the set goes, here is the preview for it which I've also added to my designs preview page (along with some other Christmas sets as I haven't updated it since my hiatus starting in April)...


If you didn't get the chance to join in the quest but happen to be interested in purchasing this set, just leave a comment to let me know and I'll get it uploaded to the Scribbles Designs Store.

If it happens that you participated during any of the days but have yet to receive your papers, be sure to leave me a comment and let me know and I'll resend them.

The Christmas Quest is finished for another year. For those of you who participated, I truly hope that you enjoyed yourself and I hope to see you again next year. For those of you who weren't able to join in, I hope that you will be able to find the time to do so next year. The quest always runs to about the middle of Jan to ensure that everyone has time to complete it. However, if there are some people out there that would like to see it extended for an additional week to help give them the time to participate, then let me know and I'll consider it.

It was my hope to get back on track with my regular holiday freebies but due to being sick during Valentine's week, I wasn't able to. I am hoping that I can still manage to make a love themed paper but it obviously won't be until March now.

Well my friends, I hope that you are doing well and avoiding all the viruses out there. If you live in the northern hemisphere, I hope that you are staying warm as well.

I'll be back on Friday with my latest Pattie's Creation project so I'll see you again then!

Until next time,

I plan to start sending out the papers to all the people who played this year, some time in the next week. Your patience, as always, is appreciated. And of course you still have a full week to get your Wish Lists completed and added so there is still lots of time to play.

As a quick refresher, each day during the 12 Days of Christmas (Dec. 25th to Jan. 5th), you're going to be given a task to follow.

To make it fair for everyone, I will have comment moderation on and won't be publishing any comments for The 12 Days of Christmas until Jan. 12, the week after the end of the quest.

It is completely up to you as to when you submit your answers (daily, all at once at the end, or otherwise). AS LONG AS ALL your Wish Lists are submitted, no later than January 12th, 2019, then you will qualify to receive the paper(s) for whichever day(s) you participate.

Play along each of the 12 days and you'll earn yourself the full set! So, how about we get started with today's clue!!!


On the twelfth day of Christmas,
it is time to earn your very last one.
I hope that the quest was worth it,
and if nothing else, you've had a little fun!!!

Task:
Today's task is a bit different. Today I want you to tell me the name of your favourite digital paper from those presented during the quest. You can click the links above to see each of the different papers offered if you need to refresh yourself as to what they look like. 

When you come up with a response for today's task, simply leave it in a comment on THIS POST. Now for many of you, especially those who have played in previous years, the odds are that I should have your e-mail address in order to send out the free paper you earn. If you are new to the quest or are not sure whether I might have your email address, please be sure to also leave your email address in your comment. If you would prefer to keep your address private, then check out the bottom paragraph from Day 1 for how to send it to me.

Thank you again to those who joined in the quest these past twelve days. Please be sure to follow me so you don't miss any future freebies! You never know when the next one will be offered!
