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.  

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.

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.

I found your challenge blog the spring/summer Coffee blog hop so I will have to say that I like the caffeinated challenges! I also do really like the faux stitching on my cards, so I think this one is great too! Hope you have a terrific day!

New Creations said...

So many fab inspirations! I love to add stitched textures on my projects! Happy fun hopping!

Becca Yahrling said...

I love all your challenges! hehe But I did manage to get the max entries in for 'Fall' themed and I also loved the 'plaid' challenge. I'm up for anything. Ya'll do a marvelous job and I'm very thankful for the challenges. One of your crazy cousins, Becca xxoo

Suzanne H said...

I love any challenge and was happy to win in the May one and the prize was so generous. Keep up the good work.

MadeByMeghanK said...

Awesome inspirations DTs! and Becca!
I would love to see a challenge with Distress Inks as Thing 1, Stenciling as Thing 2!

KT Fit Kitty said...

Great challenge and I hope to be back to join in! Your inspiration cards are gorgeous! The Coffee Hop has sneaked up on me so I had better get my act together!

I always enjoy your challenges. My favourite theme would be anything to do with animals! Also Christmas or winter holiday.

KT Fit Kitty said...

I'm back with my card! I just linked up at #12 and have done all 3 Things! Thanks for inspiring!

Azuree Lovely said...

My favorite challenge was actually the recent Masking/Halloween (Pumpkin Patch) challenge as it paired my favorite technique with my favorite holiday. But I'd love to see a no-line coloring technique challenge paired with the Winter/Christmas holiday (...or Spring). I could always use the extra practice! No-line coloring can be so tough to get right! Haha!

Kampin' Karen said...

All the colors for the DT are wonderful. I especially like Suzanne's elf. Your challenges are all great and I don't remember if you've ever done a challenge for using recycled items but that and "less than 10 minutes" are my favorite challenges.

Heather said...

Well, I don't think I could possibly pick a favorite challenge! Christmas is my favorite holiday, so I supposed anything having to do with Christmas!

Karenladd said...

This challenge is a favorite because I love using faux stitching on my cards, and always enjoy participating in the Coffee Lovers Hop. So, two of my crafty faves are always good! Would also like seeing a holiday challenge in the future.

Kelsey Thomas said...

I haven't participated in a challenge before, so I don't have a favorite. I think you should do one that combines a mythical creature with coffee. :)

SHartl said...

I like all of your challenges but especially like the ones with a seasonal Fall, or Winter. I have trouble keeping track of challenges that are too specific because my kids keep my brain from fully functioning, lol!

Tina Z. said...

wow, I am new here but I will join your challenges in the future.
My favourite would be Challenge #37 "Fall Theme", I love Fall.
Thank you for the chance to win.
