Good morning, good morning.....

good morning and WELCOME to our 3rd Shining the Light Challenge. Are you excited to find out what we are asking you to do this week? Well, you will have a ball!!!





“Since it is February and we are acknowledging national hero’s (President’s day) or people who are special to us (Valentine’s Day) in the U.S. , the challenge team is challenging you to acknowledge and case a crafter you admire or a creation you admire changing just two elements to make it our own.



To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize, a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Thursday, February 25. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments on your creations, we would love to see them if you have them.



As a way of recognizing those who do use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing 1 to 2 creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award. In order to qualify for this award, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by February 25 at 8 p.m. EST.



If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC3. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.”


Are you ready to see what I came up with? All right, here we go I have cased ODBD own Sandee Shanabrough. Sandee has such an awesome style and I have been stalking her for a long time and I am absolutely proud to be working with her now. Have a look at Sandee's version here
gorgeous isn't it?


And here is my humble CASE


May the Grace of the LORD....


Recipe:
Paper: SU Close to Cocoa, SU Chocolate Chip, PTI Vintage Cream

Stamps: ODBD Confirmation

Ink: SU Close to Cocoa, VersaMark, Chocolate embossing powder, Memento Rich Cocoa (for the doves)

Accessories: Nesties Petite Ovals Large, Scor-Pal, antique copper charm, Kaiser half pearls in Champagne, chocolate satin ribbon, brown cording,

So, what do you think? My card is a bit bigger than Sandee's, I made mine 5.5x5.5" .

Would you like to see what the rest of the Challenge Team has whipped up?

America Christine Fran Natalie Patter and our Team leader Chris

All right this is it for me for right now. I hope you've enjoy your visit and I would love to hear what you think about my CASE ;D.

I will catch you all later. I have big plans today. I am meeting up with Connie over at the Stamp and Scrapbook Expo. I have never been to an event like it so I am sure I will be blown away. I hear it is always way busy. I'll let you all know how it went.

Have a wonderful day!

Hugs,

Sabrina this is lovely!

Sherry said...

Sabrina, your card is so beautiful. I really like the sentiment on top of the cross and the scoring also.
also thanks for fixing the link to my card and your kind comments. I don't know what I am doing wrong, I'm doing it the same as the first time and it worked then. I have dialup so maybe it is taking too long to load. I may have to get my computer checked out as it really drags sometimes even for dialup.
