Welcome back, we've reached the middle of the month so here come the 
troublemakers to inspire and entertain you one last time. 

Remember, for this challenge we want you to look back on the previous 49 themes and choose one for your final entry! (Please, try and ignore the Anything Goes ones...)  








To play along you'll need to link-up here and don't forget that there are prizes on offer!

Winning at Drinking!

It's our very last challenge at Naughty or Nice, 
and we want YOU to play along!

It's time to announce our Nice and Naughty choices for Challenge #49, Drink Up! We hope you enjoyed playing along as much as we enjoyed drinking making our sample cards. ;) Over delicious mugs of tea (sure), we narrowed down our selections to our two favourites. And here they are! 

NICE:
Valérie's card is definitely nice, and such pretty colours, but has just that little bit of edge that always catches the Troublemakers' eyes! Here's another look at her card: 


NAUGHTY:
As Valérie did, Lisa Lynn used Bugaboo images for her card, but of course Stella is a perfect go-to for slightly naughtier creations. Here's another peek at her card: 


Congratulations to both of our winners, and thank you to all who joined us last month. Our winner badges are soon to become limited edition items, so we encourage you to come and play along in our current (and LAST!) challenge, So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish!

Naughty or Nice Challenge #50 - So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish!


Well, they do say that all things come to an end - even really good things like The Naughty or Nice Challenges. Yes, the troublemakers are hanging up their stamps, stencils and cardstock, but not before saying a very big thank you to everyone who has joined our challenges and made this blog so much fun!

This is our 50th Challenge, so we'd love it if as many of you as possible could play along one more time (or a few more times even!) and help us go out with a bang!
For Challenge #50 we'd like you to take a last wander through the blog and find inspiration in one or more of our past themes. Don't forget to tell us which challenge inspired you and please spread the word across Blogland as we'd love a good turn-out for this, our final challenge.  

As always, our top picks winners will each receive a gorgeous blog badge created by the very talented Danielle Lounds... 

 

Plus a super-cute stamp set from Lawn Fawn.


In addition, our lovely teamie Lynne, has donated this gorgeous La-La Land die-set as a random pick prize. Enter the challenge, and your name goes into the hat. Thanks, Lynne, and we all hope you are feeling better soon.


Let's see which challenges inspired the DT girls:

Winning Love!

Drink Up! And if it's 
too early where you are, you can
fill the time by joining our
March DRINK UP challenge! 😂

There was a lot of love in the air in February for our ALL LOVED UP challenge, with 26 terrific entries! Some projects were tender, some were a little more barbed in their expressions of affection. ;)  Here are our picks for sweet and tart...

NICE:
Marina's card is romantic and elegant - and introduced the Troublemakers to a new and fun-sounding challenge! Here is another look at her beautiful card: 


NAUGHTY:
Jane called her card an "anti-valentine", and we chose to honour it as the naughty card we hated the least. ;) Here it is: 


Congratulations to Marina and Jane (be sure to grab your limited edition badges from the end of this post) and thank you to everyone who played along! Our current challenge is a fun one... Drink Up! Grab a beverage or three of choice and come play along!

Naughty or Nice Challenge #49 - Drink Up!


Welcome to Challenge #49! This month we have a Naughty or Nice favorite 'Drink Up', but feel free to interpret drink and drinking in any way you choose!


Before we get underway with the challenge the troublemakers are sad to be waving goodbye to the lovely Amy. Thanks so much for being a special part of the fun here at Naughty or Nice. Things won't be the same without you and we wish you all the very best. Big hugs to you. We're also sending hugs to Margo, as she takes a little time out from our challenges.

So we're delighted to be welcoming a guest Troublemaker to the team. I'm sure this talented lady will be a very familiar face to many of you, so please join us in saying 'Hi' to Toni of Frankie Helps Craft.


Let's find out a little more about our guest teamie in true troublemaking style.

Occupation: Manager for a university clinical research center
Current Crafty Endeavors: I'm on the DT of Craftin' Desert Divas, Cards in Envy and The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers. I love to stamp and color but am also a knitter and former jewelry maker. Anything crafty and I'm so there!
The naughtiest thing you've ever done (that you are willing to share): Well, there's naughty and then there's NAUGHTY."  You'll need to be more specific, Officer.

Here's Toni's brilliant card for this challenge: 


Great fun, Toni, your thinking outside the box on this theme is fantastic! The regulars have also been stamping-up some fun!

Naughty or Nice Challenge #48 - Reminder

Welcome back, card fans, we hope that you all had a suitably 'loved up' Valentine's day yesterday!

Seeing as many of you might be done with romantic cards now, we thought we'd relax things a little and broaden the challenge for the second half of the month. You can still grab our gorgeous colour combo if you wish, but now your card can be for anyone on your list of loved ones!

Let's see mid-month inspiration from the team:
