DeNami Monochromatic Blog Hop

Hi blogland!  Welcome to another DeNami Blog Hop!!!  =D  Hopefully you came over here from the AMAZING blog of Melissa Tousse!!!  I love her projects!

I'm super excited about this hop, since the theme is MONOCHROMATIC projects!  It was tough to decide what color to use here, but in the end I ended up with BLUE!!!  Here's some details on the hop:

When: The blog hop starts on April 10 at 6 AM,PST. However, you have until April 11, 2011, 11:59pm PST, to leave comments on all the blogs (to be eligible for a prize).
Why: To be inspired by beautiful creations featuring DeNami Design stamps and also the chance to win mini shopping sprees on the DeNami Design website!
Prizes: We are giving away THREE $20 gift certificates to our website! We'll be giving away one gift certificate to a random participant (DT members not eligible) and then we'll also be giving away TWO gift certificates to TWO people who comment along the hop!

So be sure to comment all along the way to win!!!  OK and now onto my project: 
I really love my DeNami Owls, and I knew that when I bought that Thank You circle that I'd be using the center of it to fill with an owl sooner or later!  I distressed the background piece, and then embossed it and distressed it again with a darker shade of blue for a dramatic effect!  Finally, I added some ribbon and stickles!  =)  


I hope that you are enjoying all of the amazing projects along the way!  Now, hop on over to Ruza Rebel's blog, Ruza's Craft Corner!!!  You surely won't be dissapointed, she does just great work!  =D  

Have a lovely Sunday! =D
