Tuesdays Challenge at the Die Cuts R Us Design Team Blog

Happy Tuesday to you! I can't believe it's already mid-September. I'm pleased that my boys are (so far) very happy in 4th grade and preschool. Whew...we'll see how long that lasts. My little one is a bit more clingy but he's adjusting well. He forgets all about me once he sees cars and trucks to play with at school.

I've gotten many sweet messages and I thank you!! I'm doing well and look forward to getting back to long walks with my doggy and my boys. One thing about that crazy doggy of mine, we took him to a dog swim at our swim club and this Duck Toller can't swim! What Duck Toller can't swim? Poor Harley! Oh, yes, they closed the pool after the dog swim. It's the end of the season last swim and the doggies love it!

This week's challenge at the DCRU DT blog is to create something using any kind of media - paints, chalks, pens, glitter, water colors, embossers, markers, you name it! Take a peek at Gwen's Monday post and see how she transformed plain die cuts. Sweet!

For my challenge card, I decided to embellish the dry embossed owl with chalks and just a wee bit of Atyou Spica Glitter Pen for his beak. I kept it simple, what do you think?

Whooo whoo wants to leave me a comment?? Whoo Whoo is going to join the DCRU DT this week?? Ok, enough owl jokes...

Regarding the DCRU DT challenges, we have a new system in place to reward you for participating! Here is how it works. If you participate in a challenge you will automatically receive one "ticket." If you make the top three, you will receive 2 additional "tickets." AND if you are the week's winner, you get 3 additional "tickets!" At the end of the month, every ticket will be put into a pot and a winner will be drawn to receive a
SUPER fab prize pack! Good luck to you!!
