I am so happy.......

that it is Saturday and that Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge is back from taking a little break last week because of the new release of the ODBD October stamp line!!! I can honestly say that I look forward to every challenge as I can't wait to see what you might come up with. :D  So, let me ask you this question....what do you think of when you think Fall? For me, I would have to say looking forward to cooler temperatures, living in Southern Arizona, it is still pretty hot around here, today it was in the lower 90's right here where I am. One other favorite of mine would be seeing the colors of the leaves on trees change and falling leaves, but that is from back home in Germany, as we don't have very many trees with leaves that change at this time of year here in AZ, not down here anyhow. Can you guess what this weeks challenge might be yet?  Yes, LEAVES, you have guessed right. This week the Challenge Team is challenging you to use leaves on your creation, that can be your Designer Paper, a charm or any other embellishment, your stamped image, you name it it all counts, but one thing that does not count is gold leafing, unless you put it on your leaves ;D.

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, October 14. 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 October 14 at 8 p.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC32. When creating your posts on blogs please include a direct link to the challenge.




 Now, have a look and see what I came up with

Leaves, leaves everywhere
