A Fabulous $50 Gift Certificate Giveaway and Denise Phillip's Coffee Break Design Shrine Kit Samples!

 I'm sure you've heard me mention Denise Phillips before! She is a FANTASTIC Mixed Media Artist and a huge fan of Retro Cafe Art Gallery and Coffee Break Design products, and boy does she know how to use them as you will see from her amazing projects! The first uses the ATC Shrine Kit, Alpha Beads, Acrylic Cabochons, Corked Vials, and Denise's magic. You will often see fabulous nature themes throughout her work!


This next piece is AMAZING!

 For this gorgeous piece, Denise used several Coffee Break Design and Retro Cafe Art Gallery products including the Halloween Mini-Dash Shrine Kit, Spider and Web Cut-Outs, Bat Cut-Outs, Alpha Beads, Silver Scalloped Dresden, and a Blue Ballerina (which she painted black, clever girl!). She made it for a dear friend who happens to have a birthday on Halloween!

 Denise tells me she has now added a pedestal and doilies!



Denise has a fabulous blog and she posts regularly. She started it fairly recently and is off to an amazing start... that being said... the GIVEAWAY!


Retro Cafe Art Gallery will be sponsoring TWO $25 Gift Certificates! One and this blog, and one on Denise's blog! Denise calls me the "Contest Diva" so it seems only fitting!

Details:
1. To enter a chance for the gift certificate on this blog, simply sign-on as a follower on the right side-bar, and then leave a comment letting me know you've done so and you are all set.
2. Next, if you hop on over to Denise's blog, she will also be giving away a Gift Certificate in the same format so you have TWO chances to win!
3. Deadline to enter is Saturday October 15th. I will use a random number generator on October 16th to select the winner!
4. As you know I always like to sweeten the pot. If you are a winner and also a FACEBOOK fan I will make the Gift Certificate $40! Let me know in your comment. Please only comment once (or twice if you want and I will delete one of the posts before drawing the winner)! You can simply hit "like" below!.

    PS: Short question in regard to your Halloween contest. About one month ago I created a Halloween divination box and submitted it to a challenge by Alpha Stamps. Would it be okay to submit it also to your challenge? I didn't win anything in that other challenge, but I still love my little box. :)
