Our introduction to our Challenge Rules and Concepts can be seen by clicking on the topics below, or from our Home Page by clicking on the particular tab. Please take time to read and consider being a Follower for future Challenges and use our Participant Badge in your Blog.

Guideline (Rules) - Start Day Changed (1st & 3rd Monday each month) 

WELCOME to Challenge #2 - We hope you had fun with our first Challenge - we're guessing you must have because you're back again


THING 1  Trouble Maker challenges you to Not Use Patterned / Design Papers. Pull out your embossing folders, coloring techniques, stamps and get creative.

THING 3  Twisted Sister
challenges you to use at least one die cut in your project.  She promises it will give your project just a bit more character.  

Don't have a die...no problem...you can still play along with our basic challenge (or make a trip to the craft store) - your husband called and said it was OK  :)  

If you have taken Twisted Sister up on her optional twist it gives you an opportunity to submit your project to Thing 2 and you will also get an extra chance to win the Double Trouble Random Draw prize.  
OR, you can choose to run with Thing 1 challenge only ... your choice!  




THING 2 Double Dare
dares you to link up your creation to the Three Amigos Bloghop Challenge #15, which is open 'til the end of the month.  Since they are also using dies it's like killing two birds with one stone - and that's what getting crafty is all about.  

Three Amigos has no limits to the number of entries and the more entries the better your chances for winning their random-draw prize at the end of the month.  All products are acceptable from any manual and/or electronic die cutter.
