WELCOME to Challenge #89 - Let the Troubles Begin 
This Challenge runs from 
Monday, July 19th thru Saturday, July 31st (Ends One Day Early)
"Christmas in July"  

Thing 1: Trouble Maker 
says, "If you can answer "Yes" to both of these questions this challenge is for you.  

1. Have you, or are you ready, to start your Christmas cards for 2021?
2. Do you have a stash of Christmas supplies?  

Well, I'm guessing a lot of you have answered "Yes"... so let's create some Christmas projects from items tucked away in your stash. You'll be surprised by all the pretty papers, dies and stamps you have not yet used or may have forgotten. Take advantage of the time, 
before any new stuff arrives, and get a head start on Christmas. We're eager to see what you pull out of your stash."

You can stop here... 
you can choose to include Twisted Sister's Optional Twist and/or Double Dare's Dare.

THING 3: Twisted Sister
says, "It's time to Tie It Up!  Include a ribbon and/or bow anywhere on your project, e.g. using ribbon, twine, die, stamp, digital image, design paper, etc." 

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.

Don't stop here... 
you are eligible to enter Double Dare's Dare below.  

Thing 2:  Double Dare 
says, "If you have created a Christmas project, with or without Twisted Sister's Optional Twist, you can enter HERE at Heart2Heart's Christmas in July

Heart2Heart encourages the use of at least one Close To My Heart product, but for this theme challenge only they have waived this requirement.  However, if you do use any CTMH products Double Dare will give you another chance at our random draw.  Don't keep us guessing... include in your post the CTMH products you used."  

Heart2Heart has theme challenges that begin on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month and are open through the last day of the month, so make sure you get your entry in by July 31st. 

SNEAK PEEKMake sure you come back on August 1st Challenge #90 "Are You Kitten Me" and CLEO's Extra Special $50  Random Draw Prize celebrating International Cat Day at Double Trouble.
