Welcome to Sunshine's Stamps Grand Opening Event! We are so pleased to show you Sunshine's newest images and treat you to a mini-blog hop, a challenge, an in-store special and of course Blog Candy!

Here are the details: 

If you arrived here without starting at Sunshine's Blog  head on over there to start the blog hop and just follow the links on each blog to the next blog in the hop!! Be sure to leave a comment on every blog as you go because there is MYSTERY BLOG CANDY to be won and you can't win unless you comment on each blog in the hop! No one but Sunshine knows which blogs comments will be chosen to randomly win the Blog Candy!! And it's nice candy too!! So be sure to comment!

Next - we have a great challenge for you to play along with. You don't have to use Sunshine's Stamps
 images to play either! Head on over to Tami's blog - The Journey of Life (that's ME!) to see the challenge! The winner will receive 3 FREE IMAGES of THEIR CHOICE from Sunshine's Store!!

Here's my challenge for you!  As I mentioned a few posts down I am wanting to have some home decor that I create.  I used two AMAZING tutorials from SCS to create two different projects.  One uses an image to create home decor and the other is a candy treat "box".  

Home Decor is first:

I created this Altered Canvas using THIS TUTORIAL
I used the Sunflower Spray image and followed the tutorial just like it says only I didn't use photos (just the image).  Then, I added dots of brown and yellow pain around the spray and two SU rub ons to add some words to the canvas.  I would LOVE to know what you think of my project.  Now, as you can see I also created a card to go with my canvas using the same image.  I used the MMSC23 for this card.  If you have any questions about anything I used feel free to ask- because there's so much here I will not list everything I used unless you NEED to know!

For my second project I used the Pumpkin Pie image to create a Peek a Boo Treat Holder.  I really wanted to put a piece of pumpkin fudge inside or a Pumpkin Spice cookie but they didn't fit.  BUT, a Reese's Peanut Butter Pumpkin would fit PERFECTLY!  As you can see I used liquid applique on this "whipped cream".  Doesn't it look yummy and make a GREAT Thanksgiving card?  

Okay- enough talking- I'm sure you are ready to know what your challenge is: You are to make a card AND anything BUT a card.  You can use a tutorial that I used OR you can pick your own.  HERE is a great place to choose from!  Be sure to link up here when you do AND you don't have to use Sunshine Stamps to participate!

Finally, we are running an in-store special!! Buy any two or more images and receive Sunshine's Autumn Wreath Image FREE!!! 

Most of all we want you to have some fun! To have the opportunity to win some great images and blog candy and check out the great images Sunshine's Stamps has to offer! There are new images every week, so be sure to become a follower and keep an eye out for some other great events Sunshine's Stamps is going to be involved with between now and Christmas! 

Now lets have some blog hopping fun and get a little inky with the challenge! Have fun everyone!
 REMEMBER: the Grand Opening Event is Open from October 17th 8AM Central Time - October 20th 9PM Central Time to allow for those folks who are UBER busy on the weekend to have a chance to play early in the week! The winners will be announced FRIDAY, October 23rd on Sunshine's Blog so be sure to hop on over to see if you are a winner!!

Thanks for stopping by and we hope you have  fun at Sunshine's Stamps
 first event!!
