WELCOME to Challenge #121 - Let the Troubles Begin! 
This Challenge runs from 
Monday, September 19th thru Sunday, October 2nd
"Let's Punch It Out"  

Thing 1:  Trouble Maker 
says, "
National Punch Day (Sept 20) is about one of three things. Can you guess which two we are celebrating? 1. A sweet drink that is ladled from a punch bowl, 2. The kind of punch that you dole out with your fists, or 3. a crafting tool?  

"Hopefully, your guesses agreed with mine. So let's include a punched or die-cut element in our project. But first, pour your favorite punch or beverage into a spill-proof container and head to your craft space. Second, look through your stash and pull out at least one punch or die and use it for your project. To earn a second chance in our random draw let us know what beverage you poured into your cup by commenting on either this post or next to our link in your post." 
You can stop here... 
play along with Twisted Sister's optional twist below to earn another chance in our random draw.  

Thing 3:  Twisted Sister 
says, "Hey, tools are right up my alley and I love working with wood. My optional twist is to include wood or woodgrain on your project.  

"You may want to take this time to refill your cup and then revisit your stash... look through your patterned papers, stencils, embossing folders, dies, wood embellishments, etc. to include wood/woodgrain on your project."

Optional Twist:  If you have included wood/woodgrain on your project you will earn another chance in our random draw. Now be sure to forward on to Double Dare's Dare. 

Thing 2:  Double Dare 
says, "If you have met Thing 1's requirement to include a punched or die-cut element and have included wood/woodgrain on your project you are eligible to enter it HERE for the Use Your Stuff #467 theme to use Wood or Woodgrain."

Special Notes:  If you are sharing your project with Use Your Stuff #467 make sure you enter on or before Saturday, October 1st, the last day of their challenge.

Thank you for the fun challenge themes and gorgeous inspiration! Your team and Crazy Cousin made beautiful cards! Thanks for inspiring!

Becca Yahrling said...

I always have hot coffee in my mug!!

Karenladd said...

This gave me the motivation to pull out a punch or two, as well as my usual dies, and I always keep coffee with lots of milk in my "punch glass". Thanks for another fun challenge.

Great theme and I Love the DTs designs and inspirations!!!!!!!!!!!! I am boring... I just bring plain old water in my craft room but my "PUNCH" of choice back in my college days was vodka :)

Inkami said...

Fun cards from the designers, I don't eat or drink while crafting.

KT Fit Kitty said...

The drink in my cup today is Orange Perrier! Not a punch but very refreshing!

Heather said...

Thanks for the reminder on my blog, Suzanne! I am mostly a water drinker, so that's what I have in my cup pretty much all the time. Also, while I'm crafting, that's all I drink as I would probably spill anything else all over the place! And that would be a big mess!

Debi said...

Another fun challenge. I always have a cup of tea beside me while I craft. It starts out hot but slowly gets cold as I get involved in making something and totally forget it is there!

My go-to drink of choice is an iced chai tea latte. Starbucks has made lots of money off of me!

Tina Z. said...

great challenge, such fun. Thank you for your reminder! I like coffee or tea, I always love crafting with this.

Great challenge! I had a cup of Fruit Punch flavored Powerade Zero during my craft session. All the fruit punch flavor - none of the sugar! :) ~ Andrea

Debi said...

Once again, I have a cup of hot tea that has gone cold sitting right next to me. Thanks for the challenge and the freebie and the wonderful DT inspiration.

Andrea D. La Vigne said...

This time, for my poinsettia card, I had a glass of lemonade. :) ~ Andrea

Lisa K said...

Such a fun challenge! My beverage is lemonade, made by me. I prefer to use real lemons and Splenda.
