DRU Challenge #165

  Ready for a new Challenge??

Thanks to all you participated in our last challenge.  Please scroll down to see the Winner's post.

We're doing something a little different today! We're partnering up with the Double Trouble Challenge Blog and having a joint challenge collaboration.  It's fun and easy and you have a chance to win prizes both here on the DRU Challenge as well as the Double Trouble Challenge!

The theme for this challenge will be A Magical Day:

In order to qualify for the prizes offered at Double Trouble Challenge, you'll need to follow these guidelines.  
"A Magical Day"

Thing 1: Trouble Maker says, "We are going to recognize 'Everything You Think is Wrong Day' on March 15th, a day when nothing goes right. Picture this: Your crafting project just went wrong! Have you ever had a day like that... a day when nothing was going right? Yeah, me too." 

"Don't give up... because things that went wrong will magically correct themselves at the stroke of midnight and we will be celebrating 'Everything You Do is Right Day' on March 16th! To get to this happy day, you had to get past yesterday."

"So let's include something MAGICAL on your crafting project (i.e. gnome, fairy, magician, wand, rabbit in a hat, pixie dust, unicorn, mermaid, Disney, etc.)." 

You can stop here...
OR 
you can continue to Twisted Sister's optional twist below. 

Thing 3: Twisted Sister
says, "Trouble Maker, you were right! Everything went completely wrong yesterday but today is another day... it was magical and today everything seems to be going right. Whether or not you decide to play along with my twist we hope everything goes right for you." 

"My optional twist is to use at least one metal die (a frame, an image, a sentiment, etc.) in your project and any brand is acceptable. If you have included a die(s) on your project you will receive another chance at the DTC random draw and you will have met Double Dare's requirement below." 



Thing 2: Double Dare
says, "If you have created Thing 1's "magical" theme and have included at least one metal die on your project you are eligible to enter it at Dies R Us HERE
OR 
If you have used any brand of die that Dies R Us sells you will be eligible for their random draw and earn a $10 gift certificate at their store. Your die may already qualify... click HERE to view the list of brands sold at DRU on the left-hand sidebar. Don't keep us guessing... include the brand of die used in your post." 





So if you used a metal die to join our DRU Challenge and you've included the Magical theme, you have already completed all the requirements for both challenges.  If you've only used a die (but not the Magical theme), you are still eligible for our DRU Challenge, but it won't qualify for the Double Trouble Challenge.

(remember, you MUST use at least 1 metal die to qualify for the DRU prize... and please tell us the die company you have used in your project.)


Our Designers have some fabulous inspiration for you today.  Sit back, relax, and take a look.... (you can click on their name to go to their personal blogs and get more detailed information about each project).
