"Something, Anything, Everything" 
"Optional: Let It Snow" 


THING 1: Trouble Maker
says, "It's time again to grab your bone folder and other crafty stuff and create something new. We think this is easier than folding a fitted sheet! It's time to use the stuff' you have in your stash (new and/or old)."

You can stop here...

OR, you can choose to include Twisted Sister's Optional Twist below to earn additional chances at our random draw.







THING 3: Twisted Sister
says, "I can't get these songs out of my mind... Ten Little Snowflakes, Frosty the Snowman, Jingle Bells, and a personal favorite, Let It Snow! Create a project that celebrates white, sparkly flakes of snow, i.e. snow-people, snow angels, snowbirds, snow sports, snowflakes, snow scenes, snowballs, snow cones, even a snow-covered tree, etc."

This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but you will be awarded an additional chance in Double Trouble's random draw if you include this twist in your project.








THING 2: Double Dare 
says, "I dare you to multiply the fun by linking your project with any previous partner(s) listed below. You will qualify for extra chances in our Random Draw."

"Make sure you read their guidelines carefully and observe their dates. We don't want you to get into trouble."

This means each time you link to a previous partner with the same card, you gain an additional chance. Please identify each of them in your blog along with our Double Trouble link.

Challenge #71 "All the Trimmings" Partnering with The Paper FunDay

Click HERE for an introduction to our challenges
and HERE for complete guidelines.
Please take the time to read so you don't get into trouble. Consider becoming a follower and using our participant badge or any photo from our current challenge for your blog posting.

WELCOME to Challenge #71
Let the Troubles Begin 
This Challenge runs from 
Monday, Nov 16th thru Sunday, Nov 29th  

"All the Trimmings”   

 


Thing 1: Trouble Maker 
says, "With Thanksgiving just around the corner, most of us will enjoy turkey with 'all the trimmings'. We have included popular "trimmings" in our TicTacToe Board for paper-crafters. There's even a FREE space! 

So my challenge is to create a festive project from the board. To start all you need to do is select a direction that works for you - a row, a column, or a diagonal. And it's okay to include other ingredients from the board to enhance your project. 

You can stop here... 
OR you can use Twisted Sister's optional twist below





TRIVIA: After the first Thanksgiving, the observance was sporadic and almost forgotten until the early 1800s. It was usually celebrated in late September or October. In 1941, Congress made it a national holiday and set the date as the fourth Thursday in November. 


Thing 3: Twisted Sister 
says, "The morning air is crisp as I sit on the patio enjoying my coffee and playing with Trouble Maker’s TicTacToe. I feel so "sentiment-al" as the leaves change color. Let's create a project with a greeting or sentiment. It should be noticeable - large, bold, or bright if you wish."

"This can be any sentiment that you choose or you may want to use one of our partner’s optional sentiments 'Give Thanks/ Thankful/ Grateful'." 

This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but you will be awarded an additional chance in Double Trouble's random draw if you include this twist in your project.  




Thing 2: Double Dare 
says, "The Paper Funday Challenge #23 is an Anything Goes monthly challenge, however, they have an optional theme of 'Give Thanks/Thankful/Grateful'. So we would be grateful if you use their option, too. If you have created a card that fits their challenge, whether or not you used Twisted Sister's optional twist, you will receive an additional chance at the Double Trouble Random Draw." 

Note: Paper Funday Challenges also have prizes, however, you must be a follower of their Challenge Blog to be eligible.

Click HERE for an introduction to our challenge and HERE for complete guidelines. 
Please take the time to read the information so you don't get into trouble. 
Consider becoming a follower and use our participant badge or any photo 
from our challenge for your blog posting.

WELCOME to Challenge #70
Let the Troubles Begin! 
This Challenge runs from 
Monday, November 2 thru Sunday, November 15th
"Stitch It Up" 


THING 1: Trouble Maker
says, "Our requirement for this challenge is "Stitch It Up".  There are many possibilities using paper scraps, stencils, and/or embossing folders to create patchwork, quilt, and/or knit designs.  Consider using punch- or die-cutting, hand or machine sewing, piercing, hand-drawn stitching, needlework or cross-stitching, etc. So, keep calm and stitch on... stitch it up and show us your creativity."   

You can stop here... 
OR you may OPT to use these two sketches from Double Dare's challenge below - or not. However, they are excellent sketches in which to incorporate Thing 1's requirement, "Stitch It Up".  Feel free to change the orientation of the sketch... rotate the sketch or use its mirror image.  Again, you can stop here... OR you can choose to use Twisted Sister's fun Optional Twist below.  

Sketch #1 (Nov 2-8) 
Sketch #2 (Nov 9-15)














THING 3: Twisted Sister 
says, "Stitching and sewing... now that's serious stuff. You know it's tough for me to get serious, but I do like stuff... so let's add a little humor and create a project that will also 'Keep Us in Stitches' and include humorous or funny sentiment or image on your project." 

This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but you will be awarded an additional chance in Double Trouble's random draw if you include this twist in your project.   

THING 2: Double Dare
says, "Whether or not you have used Twisted Sister's optional twist, a humorous/funny image or sentiment", you may still enter your project at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge if you used one or both sketches. Make sure when you have used at least one of the sketches below. It must be created and submitted to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenges by the dates indicated below."
