THING 3: Twisted Sister
says, "I'm rich! During the last challenge I found the pot of gold and now it's time to travel. Let's adventure! Show us what mode of transportation you enjoy when on vacation (surfboarding, aircraft, boats, trains, autos, etc.)."








THING 2: Double Dare

If you have used Twisted Sister's Optional Twist, it's more than likely you will be able to skip on over to enter your project.

"The Wearin' o' the Green" 


THING 1: Trouble Maker
says, "Let's celebrate St. Patrick's Day with the wearin' o' the green!" Dress up your project with green as the primary color.  (It does not have to be a St. Paddy's Day card... celebrate any occasion.)  

Don't stop here... consider Twisted Sister's optional twist. 







THING 3: Twisted Sister
says, "Good ole St. Paddy's day is all about findin' the Pot o' Gold... be it in a pint o' beer or at the end of a rainbow." Include a "golden touch" on your project. 

This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but you will be awarded an additional chance in Double Trouble's random draw prize if you include something gold.


THING 2
: Double Dare 
says, "I'm proud of my Irish heritage and double dare you to play along by linking your green project at Heart2Heart Challenge." While Heart2Heart encourages the use of at least one CTMH product, for this partnership, this requirement will be waived.  Heart2Heart has weekly theme challenges and  you are able to enter up to the last day of the month; however, Double Trouble challenge closes on March 17th.  

Enjoy a typical Irish tune HERE as you link with our partner.

Participation at Heart2Heart gives you an extra chance in our random draw.
