Thing 1:  Trouble Maker 
says, "Have you, or are you ready, to start your Christmas cards for 2022?  Do you have a stash of Christmas supplies?'
"Well, I'm guessing a lot of you have answered, 'Yes'... so let's create Christmas projects using items tucked away in your stash. You'll be surprised when you see the pretty papers, dies, stencils, folders, and stamps you have not yet used or may have forgottenWe're eager to see your Christmas projects and what you may have pulled from your stash."    

You can stop here, 
You can continue on to Twisted Sister's optional twist below and use the Crazy 8 Board... perfect for Christmas projects in traditional and non-traditional colors. Earn an extra chance in our random draw.   

Thing 3:  Twisted Sister 
says, "My optional twist is to use the Color Dare Challenge's Crazy 8 Board to inspire your Christmas card design. I am sitting on the Board to the left consisting of six color blocks and two theme blocks. Simply pick any four of the eight blocks.  Color names for reference only but you are welcome to use any products as long as the colors are the closest match.

If you want to use additional blocks it's your choice as long as you use only blocks included in the Square. Free to use are Black, White, Gold, and Silver, which can be used in addition to your four chosen blocks.   

Optional Twist:  If you have used the Crazy 8 Board you have earned another chance in our Random Draw  Be sure to stop by Double Dare's Thing 2.
