There are several parts to this challenge,
but the only requirement is to play along with Thing 1.
We encourage you to add some fun... try our options by participating in
Twisted Sister's Thing 3 and/or Double Dare's Thing 2
to earn additional chances in our random drawing.

WELCOME to Challenge #154  - Let the Troubles Begin! 
This Challenge runs from 
Monday, November 20th thru Sunday, December 3rd 
"Keep Calm and Stitch On"  

THING  1:  Trouble Maker 
says, "Of all the notable days on the calendar, 'Pins and Needles Day', November 27th, acknowledges the existence of those nerve-racking days we all experience.  As a paper crafter, being on 'pins and needles' reminds me of how persistent we are in creating something special but let down when something goes wrong. Then we scurry about to complete it on time.  

My requirement is intended to be calming so... INCLUDE STITCHING ON YOUR PROJECT using dies, embossing folders, patterned paper, faux techniques, piercing tools, hand-drawn, or even sewn by machine. Perhaps this simple requirement will bring serenity on any 'Pins and Needles Days' in your future crafting."

You can stop here... 
play along with Twisted Sister's optional twist below to earn another chance in our random drawing.

THING 3:  Twisted Sister 
says, "Hey! Have I got a twist for you!  I think it would be fun to use this sketch from our friends over at Tuesday Morning Sketches. Your stitched elements will work perfectly for Pins and Needles DayMy optional twist is to USE SKETCH #734 for an additional chance in our random drawing.   

"Feel free to change the orientation of the sketch... rotate the sketch or use its mirror image. You may also add sentiments and change shapes as long as the basic sketch is recognizable in your project."

Optional Twist: If you opted to use this sketch you have earned an additional chance in our random drawing.  

THING 2: Double Dare
says, "If you have met Thing 1's stitching requirement, and have used Tuesday Morning Sketches #734, you are eligible to ENTER YOUR PROJECT HERE and you will qualify for an additional chance in our random drawing."

Special Notes: Please note that the Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge #734 starts on Tuesday, Nov 21st. If you post your project at Double Trouble on Monday, the 20th, you are still eligible to enter your project at Tuesday Morning Sketches. 

You are permitted to backlink for that Monday only... so be sure to visit again on Tuesday so you can post your card to the Tuesday Morning Sketches Challenge using the link provided above.
