It's Party Time....

and we are celebrating the Second Anniversary of Our Daily Bread Designs . We will be focusing on gifts for Anniversaries during this time of celebration and since the Second Anniversary tradition gift is Cotton, we, the Shining the Light Challenge Team is kicking off the celebration by showing you some amazing creations done with just that, cotton!! You might wonder, how in the world, but it is really not that hard...think stamp on cotton fabric, use cotton ribbon, make a cotton flower ;D.....get creative and let the creative juices flow!!! And since this is a 5 day long celebration things are different as far as the posting of your creation goes!!!!! You will have ONE day to link your challenge creation and NOT one week!!!! As with all the challenges this week..this challenge was announced on March 7th on the ODBD Blog so you could get a head start, but if you did not get a head start don't get discouraged, you ladies rock and I am sure you will blow us away with your creations!! So, get your stamps out and get creating as you have until 8 p.m. EST tonight to link your creation to Mr. Linky on the ODBD Blog the winner will be chosen by random and will receive a $ 15.00 gift certificate for stamps from the ODBD store !!! The winner will be announced on the ODBD Blog post tomorrow when we issue the next challenge!

Hi Sabrina,

Thanks for your wonderful comment at Create With Joy - I'm not sure what happened to your original comment - it never came through - Blogger has been playing tricks all weekend and this is just one more example!

Your card is stunning! So elegant and timeless. I love the Serenity prayer, and your handmade cotton flower, combined with your color scheme, is just a knock-out!

I guess gold must be your fave color - I notice the card coordinates with your blog - can't wait to see what you do in a few days for gold and silver!

Hugs
Ramona :-)
