WELCOME to Challenge #49 - Let the Troubles Begin! 

"Again and Again" 

Thing 1: Trouble Maker
says, "This week we are celebrating Groundhog Day. The movie, "Ground Hog Day," keeps coming to mind. In the movie, time stood still and each day was a repeat of the previous day, again and again. 

So I'm asking that you repeat one of the items in your project (a shape, an embellishment, an image or sentiment, etc.). It doesn't have to be a perfectly identical repeat... but don't keep us guessing. Tell us about your repeated item in your post along with our challenge link." 

You can stop here... 
OR, you can choose to include Twisted Sisters Optional Twist below.

Thing 3: Twisted Sister and Twisted Sister's Sister
say, "Well, Trouble Maker has been known to have a repeating problem for quite some time but Ground Hog Day evokes feelings of how much we love critters. Using a product from your stash include a critter or two on your project. 

This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but you will be awarded an additional chance in Double Trouble's random draw if you include this twist in your project.

AND Don't stop here... 

Thing 2: Double Dare:
says, "If you have used a product from your stash and have included a critter or critters, you can click on Use Your Stuff #391 "Critters" to enter your project. Be aware that their challenge ends on Saturday, February 15th.

Click HERE for some fun information about the Ground Hog Day celebration. For an additional chance at Double Trouble's random draw make a comment on this post and let us know "What does it mean if a groundhog sees his shadow?"

I'm happy to join in this month as a Crazy Cousin, and participating in the Groundhog Day challenge. From what I saw in the news yesterday, the groundhog did not see his shadow so we can expect an early spring. However, apparently, Mr. Groundhog doesn't have much of a success rate so I wouldn't pull out my springtime outfits yet!

if he sees his shadow it means more winter and if he didn't see his shadow, there will be an early spring.

Thank you for a new challenge and for the adorable inspiration! You know I love critters! I am happy to link up here! I did all 3 things on my entry #7. Hope to be back again!

What a fun challenge. Glad I found you. I actually had 2 cards that fit both your challenge here AND the Use Your Stuff Challenge. Both were in the same Blog post though, so I added one to this challenge and the other to Use your Stuff. Also, If the groundhog sees his shadow, it means 6 more weeks of Winter...Brrr!!! xxD

Suzanne H said...

It was fun to add all three things. I love the Groundhog Day movie too!

SweetScraps said...

Love the collaboration with your team! Groundhog day doesn't mean much where I am, we always have 6 more weeks !

Karen C said...

All I can say is, Thank goodness we're having an early spring. Feels like this winter has already lasted too long! <3 Love love Love (had to repeat myself) summertime!!

You know what....Groundhog Day completely passed me up this year. I remember thinking it was my Grandma's BD (she's been gone many years now) but forgot to read about Punxsatawnee Phil and find out if any of the prognosticating rodents had bitten the town mayor where they live!! lol... OUCH! Gotta love how Phil's handlers wear long leather!!

Congratulations to Crazy Cousin Karen Ladd! It's always fun to see a crafty friend getting the spotlight....well-deserved with that adorable card.

Thank you for this fun challenge theme!!
