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

GUIDELINE CHANGE FOR THIS CHALLENGE ONLY 
We have doubled the Entries to a total of 8
to accommodate for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop 
and additional chances for Blog Candy 


WELCOME to Challenge #42 - Let the Troubles Begin!

"You have Us in Stitches"


THING 1:  Trouble Maker
says, "You have me in stitches..."  Include stitching on your project for any special holiday or occasion (faux stitching with your favorite dies and stamps, hand-drawn, machine stitching, embroidery, cross-stitching, stitched ribbons, etc.).








THING 3:  Twisted Sister
says, "I feel perky.  Include on your project something in reference to coffee/tea/cocoa/cider (can use digitals, stamps, dies and die-cuts, pattern papers, embossing folder, embellishments and/or sentiment) to join us in the fun at 2019 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop." This is optional and limited to November 1-8 with the Coffee Lovers BlogHop.  

HOWEVER...
Remember that Double Trouble is biweekly and we'd like you to "Keep us in stitches" and play along with us throughout our entire challenge. You can choose to use the caffeine theme for the entire two weeks, or not.    


THING 2:  Double Dare
says, "We are not partnering with anyone for this challenge; but would like for you to join us at  the 2019 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop for another chance for our random-draw.  

The Coffee Blog Hop opens Friday, November 1st at 6:00 am PST and closes on Friday, November 8th at 12:00 midnight PST.  Below additional details. CLICK HERE to post your project.  





BLOG CANDY:  Although we are not a sponsor to the Coffee Lovers, we are giving away Blog Candy in addition to our usual random draw prize at Double Trouble. To be eligible all you have to do is to make a comment on this post and tell us what your favorite Double Trouble Challenge has been or challenge you would like us to create.  Not required, but if you add a comment to our Design Team and Guest Designer blogs you will get additional chances.
                 
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 

Exciting Change at the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop...
The seasonal Blog Hop is moving to an "Anything Goes" theme, however, you still need to include some sort of coffee, tea, cocoa or cider element or sentiment. How simple is that?

There are many super sponsors and there are no limits to the number of projects you enter. The more entries the better your chances for winning Coffee Lovers' random draw prizes. Click HERE to see the variety of sponsors and the gifts they are donating, and don't forget to look for Blog Candy along the way.
