There is also going to be a new way to award the prizes for the challenges:

* 1st Place Winner of 3 digi stamps of your choice from Karen's Doodles will be awarded by merit. The DT members will vote on their favorite entry. The winner will also get a Card of the Week blinkie to display on their blog

* 3rd Place Winner of 1 Digi stamp of your choice from Karen's Doodles will be chosen by Random.org

Still lots of prizes to win, so come check it out!!!!

My project this week is a tin to collect our Loonies and Toonies (Canadian $1 and $2 coins!!) for our trip to Hawaii in March!!! I used Tropical Party set, and coloured them all with Copics! It took a long time, a labour of love!!! The tin is an old SU! punch tin that they were selling off really cheap awhile ago. It was sitting in my "alterable" tubs (yes, I said TUBS...I have 3 big Rubbermaid tubs full of stuff to be altered...gulp!!!) and I figured it was PERFECT for this project!! I made the sentiment on my computer using Australian Sunset font.








I hope you will join us this week for the challenge!!! Thanks for stopping by!!!! Oh, and...any pointers on fun things to do in Oahu would be GREATLY appreciated.



I am entering this into the Cowgirl's Sunday Stamp-en Challenge! The challenge over there is Animals/Bugs!!! I am also entering it into Creative Inspirations challenge, which has an animal theme as well!! I think this fits in nicely with both!!!!! And one last challenge this fits in with, is at Alphabet Challenge - the letter this week is N for NATURE!

THANKS!!!
Chris
