Two challenges you can enter!

I want to share two challenges that you can enter - they have prizes offered, with a chance for you to win!!

First up is Gecko Galz. The customer challenge this month is Country Charm. All you need to do is use at least one Gecko product in your project and link it up. Details are here. I made a bunny for this month.

I love making home decor items and so I'm always watching for pieces to buy that I can decorate. This little bunny is wooden and he's from the Target dollar spot. He was plain, no decoration except yellow paint around the edge. I used paper from the "Country Stitches" paper pack and covered the body. Then I used a Tim Holtz die (Tattered Flowers) and various Gecko Galz papers to cut and layer the flowers. I added a gold resin flower from Stampin' Up in the center.

Next up is a tag I made for Tag Tuesday. The theme was chosen by Chrissie and is Faces. She is offering a prize and the details are on her blog, which you can link to from the Tag Tuesday main page.

It just so happens that my sister and I attended a show last week called Adventures in Stamping. It's a stamper's dream and I wait for it all year long! We purchased the new Tim Holtz Hipster Animals stamps and dies. We also splurged and bought the new Distress Oxide inks!! We had fun trying them out the other day and I decided to make the ostrich for one of my face tags. I used the oxide inks to cover the tag - I love the soft look - and then I stamped the ostrich with Walnut Stain Distress ink, die cut it out and colored it with chalks. The word EPIC was stamped and punched out in a star shape. I used the die cut and green paper to make the glasses.

Thanks for stopping by today!
