WELCOME to Challenge #19 - Let the Troubles Begin

"Warm and Cozy"  



 
THING 1:  Trouble Maker 
says, "I'm feeling warm and cozy next to the fireplace cuddled in my jammies." 

Create something with a "warm and cozy" theme for these cold January days using a stamped or digital image placed onto a patterned paper or embossed background. 



THING 3:  Twisted Sister 
says, "My kittens and I have lost our mittens and we are going to cry." Please help us find our mittens by including a mitten, a kitten or something "warm and fuzzy" on your project. Then we can ALL have some pie!

This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but you will be awarded an additional chance in Double Trouble's random prize draw if you use it.
 
THING 2:  Double Dare 
reminds you when you're feeling sad to simply remember "Your favorite things...whiskers on kittens...warm woolen mittens..." and then you won't feel so bad. Click HERE and sing along.

If you have included something to keep you warm in the winter you can link up your project HERE to the Creative with Stamps Challenge Blog "Mittens" and you will receive an additional chance at the Double Trouble random draw. 
Make sure you follow their guidelines and only those that submit a card will be eligible as a Winner.

Top 3 and Random Draw - Challenge #16

Thank you so much for your support. There were many entries in our 16th Challenge for creating a Winter/Holiday project with the option to use the snow, snow, snow.  The first week  we had another winter challenge using an image or sentiment for Coffee/Tea/Cocoa winter theme.  We loved all of the fabulous designs and inspiration you shared with us and the many who included Twisted Sister's option "Let It Snow".  

Blog Candy for the Coffee/Tea/Cocoa theme was sent out soon after the Challenges closed, but our regular draw was inadvertently overlooked due to last minute preparations for the Christmas Holidays as many of you probably experienced too.  The four recipients for a Coffee Mat and die were awarded to Amanda Bodine, Marcia Drain, Karen Ladd and Becca Yahrling.  

A high-five for everyone who joined our challenge. Thank you all for your participation and we hope you'll continue to follow us for future fun challenges.
