WELCOME to Challenge #101 - Let the Troubles Begin! 
This Challenge runs Monday, January 17th - Sunday, January 30th 
"Mix 'Em Up w/Three Patterned Papers"  



Thing 1: Trouble Maker
says, "It's Winter and I'm just chillin' so I don't want to make things complicated. That's why I'm asking you to use three patterned papers - just "Mix 'Em Up"!  It's that simple... that's all you need. 

"IF you want to be a little ambitious and boost your creativity, our partner has this sketch that is perfect for using patterned papers. Feel free to change the orientation of the sketch... rotate the sketch or use its mirror image. IF you use this sketch you will receive a chance at our random draw."

In Summary:
1. Thing 1 Requirement: Three patterned papers MUST be used in your project.
2. Optional: It's your choice to use the TSOT sketch above.  


Thing 3: Twisted Sister
says, "January 20th is World Penguin Awareness Day! I'm also chillin', but not with Trouble Maker. I'm chillin' with the penguins. So for my optional twist, let's waddle with a clumsy swaying motion and include a "penguin  in your project."  











Thing 2
: Double Trouble
says, "If you have included three patterned papers and used Try Stampin' on Tuesday's Sketch for Challenge #539,  you may link your project HERE.  And if you have used Twisted Sister's optional twist to 'include a penguin' you have also met their optional theme, Winter Wonder.

"Please note that Try Stampin' on Tuesday starts on Tuesday, November 16th. If you post your project at Double Trouble on Monday, the 15th, you are still eligible to enter your project at TSOT. We are permitted to backlink for that Monday only... so be sure to visit again on Tuesday so you can post your card to the TSOT Challenge using the link provided above."

"For Cuddle-Up Day, let's think cozy and warm and  Layer Up!  You MUST use at least one die, punch, or machine cut and include at least two or more layers on your project. Bring on your card layering techniques and Layer Up."

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.  







Thing 2: Double Dare

For this challenge only, our partner is accepting the use of cut items from punches, dies, and any cutting machine, but NO fussy-cutting!

This is optional... but IF you are looking for inspiration for your project click here for a Days of December Calendar to see holiday inspiration and some bizarre and wacky days that could be used for your project. (Ex: December 13 is Ice Cream Day and could be used for a birthday card, or December 5 is Bathtub Party Day, oh, ummm, wait a minute, that's my birthday!  IF you choose something from this list, let us know what date and special event you used... don't keep us guessing."

Use any number(s) related to age, a special day, a year, or maybe include a calendar on your project."

This is an Optional Twist; but if you include this on your project, you have earned another chance at our random draw.
