Transformation Tuesday & TGF Q#2

Well it's technically Tuesday here for me, 3am, that is! I bet many of you who have kids are familiar with this crazy hour. ;)
So while he plays happily beside me, I thought I'd post my current projects for this Transformation Tuesday edition.
I'm finally working on that V-day paint can. It's not 100% complete but it is getting there. First I ran a measured sheet of cardstock through the CB with the swirls folder. After looking on line at corsets, I thought this would be the best design. Then I punched holes on both sides with my crop-a-dile and added heart eyelets. I glued it just along the edges, wrapped it around the paint can and laced upwards, shoestring style with black ribbon. I am going to add more to it, but I don't want it to be too over the top.

My other altered project started off like this:and ended up like this!
My SS likes birdhouses so I thought I would do a fun version of one. I ran red cardstock with the dots folder through the CB, distressed the roof with 2 different brown inks, then stamped the 3 animals and 'friendship' sign from TGF's McSplendid Farm set and added them to the front. I measured out enough strips of the grass DP to cover the base. It was 20* out but I wanted to see what it looked like hanging, so I suspended it from a house plant. The best part was that the birdhouse was a $1 at Michaels so I knew that it wouldn't be the worse thing if I messed up.
Have a wonderful day everyone, thanks for stopping by!
*Love and Aloha*

Question #2:
What were the names of the two card challenges/contests that TGF held?
