Let the Troubles Begin

"Be Square - Christmas in July" 


THING 1: Double Trouble
says, "Have some fun and help us celebrate Christmas in July while singing along with Bing Crosby to the Hawaiian Christmas Song Mele Kalikimaka for inspiration." Make a square card, scrapbook page, gift box or use squares on your project.

If you use a stamp that is at least one year old (rubber or acrylic) you can also play along with Thing 2 who Double Dares you to join in at Retro Rubber Challenge below.  Digital images are not acceptable.  



THING 3: Twisted Sister
says, "In July, Santa likes to hang 10 at the North Shore rather than the North Pole."  

If you create a beach scene with Santa you can earn an extra chance to our random draw. 

This is an optional fun twist and we would love to see how you think Santa spends his time at the North Shore.     



THING 2: Double Dare
dares you to use a rubber or acrylic stamp older than one year and since you already have your Christmas theme, you can enter Retro Rubber Challenge #114.  Unfortunately Retro Rubber challenge ends on Friday, July 12th, so get your project in early to enter.  However, if you use stamps more than a year old and let us know in  your post, Double Trouble will still honor it as an entry and it will still qualify for another chance to our Random Draw.   

Must include the age (or approximate age) of the stamp in your blog post. After all – Retro wants to give these old stamps some love!
