We encourage you to add some fun... choose to participate in either 
Twisted Sister's Thing 3 and/or Double Dare's Thing 2 
 to earn additional chances to our random draw.  

WELCOME to Challenge #130  - Let the Troubles Begin! 
This challenge runs from Friday, January 20th  thru Sunday, February 5th
"Keep Us In Stitches" 

Thing 1:  Trouble Maker 
says, "I love to see people laughing and enjoying themselves. Some people can keep us in stitches with their humor. Best of all, crafters frequently share many projects using stitches created with tools they have in their stash. Our challenge is to include stitching on your project using dies, embossing folders, patterned paper, faux techniques, piercing tools, hand-drawn or even sewn by machine. Stitching on a card is SEW fun and SEW pretty!  It's your turn to choose your stitching technique and Keep Us in Stitches."  

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, "Oh my, stitching was so much fun that I find myself all stitched out and punchy with silly laughter.  I concentrated on it for far too long. Paper crafting is like magic... we can wave our imaginary wands and move from stitching and laughter into a world of fantasy. Fantasy holds so many mythical or magical creatures, like fairies, unicorns, witches, wizards, dragons, gnomes, mermaids, and more! And they have magic accessories, too. My optional twist is for you to use your choice of any mythical or magical creature and/or magic accessories among your stitches."

Optional Twist:  If you have included my optional twist you will have earned another chance in our Random Drawing. 

Thing 2:  Double Dare 
says, "If you have met Thing 1's requirement to 'Keep Us in Stitches' and Thing 2's optional twist to include a 'mythical or magical element' you are eligible to enter your project at The Fairy and The Unicorn Challenge for January."  

Special Notes:   The Fairy and The Unicorn Challenge is a monthly challenge and will close on January 31st; so make sure you enter your card before their close date. However, they re-open Saturday, February 4th and depending upon their requirement you may be able to ener your projects entered on February 4th and 5th.  

Double Trouble will continue this same challenge from February 1st and balance of our usual 5th-week challenge to meet our 1st Monday Challenge in February.
