The 12 Days of Christmas Quest: Day Four

It is the fourth day of Christmas and it is time to continue the quest. If you missed day one click HERE to start from the beginning and read all the details. Then for day two, click HERE and for day three click HERE.

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. Each day over the next 12 days, I'll be asking you questions to find out a little bit more about you as a designer. You will be able to leave your daily answer in a comment on the post for each respective day. If you follow the instructions for each day, you'll earn a free digital paper.

Since this is a busy time of year for most people, you will have plenty of time to complete 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 TASKS are submitted, no later than January 12th, 2020, then you will qualify to receive the paper(s) for whichever day(s) you participate.

Here is the paper up for grabs today...

This paper is 3600 x 3600 pixels, in jpg format and published at 300 dpi. Credits include: Pixaroma (via Deal Jumbo), olarts (via Pixabay) and Marisa Lerin (Pixel Scrapper). In the zip folder that will be emailed should you successfully complete the quest, 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.

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 fourth day of Christmas,
it is time to earn paper number four.
Continue to follow the quest each day,
and you'll get to earn several more!!!

What are your TOP FIVE FAVOURITE CHALLENGE BLOGS that you link up your projects to? Please rank in order from most favourite being number 1 AND tell me what it is about the one that you rank as #1 that makes it your favourite of the bunch?

For myself, these days I don't really have time to join up to many challenges and given that my current cards are digital, that makes it hard sometimes to find challenges that don't ask for handmade creations. So, the following challenge blogs have been my 'go to' list lately because they all accept digital and I don't have to worry about any sort of theme:
  1. Through the Craft Room Door -- Okay, maybe I'm biased because I was featured in one their magazines a few years ago (goodness, has it been that long?!) or maybe it is because I was a regular sponsor for a few years and got to know Cara well. There is also the fact that they have a line up of really great sponsors AND their designers never fail to inspire!
  2. Word Art Wednesday
  3. Crafty Creations Challenges
  4. Your Scrapbook Place
  5. Crafting With an Attitude 

When you come up with a response for today's task, simply leave your TOP FIVE FAVOURITE CHALLENGE BLOGS LIST ALONG WITH YOUR REASON FOR WHY YOU CHOSE YOUR #1 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.

Hope this last Saturday of the year finds you in a glorious mood! See you all tomorrow for day number five!!!

My passion for inspiration is often sketches although I sometimes do a card that doesn't entail a sketch. So most of my favorite blogs are sketch blogs.
1. The Outlawz challenges: this is a site that has a challenge every other day of the week. They used to be every day but now they rotate on a two week basis. There is something for everyone here. They have sketches, themes, color and anything goes so I often go here when I make a project.
2 Sketch Saturday
3. Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2
4. Catch the Bug
5. Simon challenges (they have 2 and you can win a $50 gift card).

D.L. ART has a monthly linky pary and there is no limit as to how many times you link up in the month.
