WELCOME to Challenge #60 - Let the Troubles Begin 

"Something, Anything, Everything" 



THING 1: Trouble Maker
says, "It's time again to grab your bone folder and other 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, "In the USA we are celebrating our Independence Day on July 4th. This does not have to be patriotic but we would like to see a combination of red, white and blue in 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, "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 with them."

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 with our Double Trouble link.  




Check out Color Dare Challenge #401 with Inspiration Board which include Red, White and Blue - No Backlinking but if you have created a card from July 3-5, you can enter your card at Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge 401 HERE providing you have only the colors in their Inspiration Board

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 using our participant badge or any photo from our current challenge for your blog posting.


WELCOME to Challenge #59 - 
Let the Troubles Begin 

"3-2-1 Recipe"  


THING 1:  Trouble Maker
says, "Help us stir up some trouble with a 3-2-1 Recipe that can be used for any occasion." 
     From: Our Kitchen at Double Trouble   
     Servings: Unlimited portions of Fun
     Ingredients:  3 - Colors 
                           2 - Embellishments   
                           1 - Seasoned Stamped/Digital Sentiment 
                                (clear or rubber stamp more than 
                                one year old)

Directions: You may use more than the recipe ingredients stipulated but you must include at least the required minimum of each ingredient for successful results.  And don't forget to identify the year of your seasoned stamp/digital in your post.  

You can stop here... 
OR you can stir it up with Twisted Sister's optional sketch below to enhance the Recipe to earn an extra chance at the random draw.  



THING 3:  Twisted Sister
says, "Let's get straight to the point. From my point of view, I see a sketch with sharp angles so here's MY angle: Using the sketch, create a project using at least one angular shape without round corners, i.e., triangles, quadrilaterals such as square, rectangle, parallelogram, rhombus, etc.  That's my angle and I'm sticking to it!"  



Feel free to change the orientation... rotate the sketch or use its mirror image.  

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, "If you have created a project using the Retro Rubber's Sketch #137 above and Trouble Maker's  3-2-1 Recipe with a "seasoned" stamp... link your project HERE . You will receive an additional chance at the Double Trouble Random Draw." 

Retro Rubber Challenge will not become live until Tuesday, June 16th.  If you have submitted your project to Double Trouble on Monday, you can enter your project, even though backlinked, on Tuesday in Retro Rubber.

THING 3: Twisted Sister 
says, "Trouble Maker has me running in circles and it's making me dizzy! You know the old saying, 'What goes around, comes around.' Well, let's show her! My twist is to include at least one round item on your project, i.e., frames, circles, wheels, orbs, gears, balls, hoops, etc. Whatever you decide, be sure to keep to the masculine theme."  








THING 2Double Dare 
says, "I am daring you to link your masculine project with our partner, Use Your Stuff. You may link your project HERE whether you use Twisted Sister's optional twist or not, and you will receive an additional chance at the Double Trouble Random Draw."

Apologies to those that have tried to link up for the challenge and then realized that there was a cap at Use Your Stuff.  They have opened up some extra links so please feel free to back link your project as long as it falls within the perameters of the challenge dates.
