Hello and WELCOME.......

to the very first challenge hosted by the ODBD Challenge Team!!!! I am....and I think I can speak for all of us of this wonderful team, that we are super excited to have weekly challenges and hope that you will join us!!

For our FIRST challenge we thought, since Valentines Day is quickly coming up, we will challenge you to use HEARTS on your project. The hearts can be on your designer paper, in you image, on your embellishments (ribbons, pearls, gems, charms you name it).

To make this challenge even more fun, we (ODBD) will be giving out a prize, a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs Store!!! If you want to win all entries for the prize must be submitted on the ODBD Blog by Thursday February 11, 2010 by 8 PM EST!!

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 also 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 Designs stamps and have your submission added to Mr.Linky by February 11, 2010 at 8PM EST!!!!!

If you upload your creations to SCS (Splitcoast Stampers) or any other online gallery, please use the keyword ODBDSLC1. If you post your creation on your personal Blog, please include a direct link to the challenge.

Now are you ready to see what I came up with? See I wanted to use lots of HEARTS :D:D:D and this is what I came up with

Your card is so beautiful Sabrina. The heart button in the center of your flower is lovely. Leave it to you to pay close attention to detail! I am a huge fan of the MS punches so I have this one and I love the way that you made it a double border. As for the stamp that you used..............I have that too, I love the ODBD stamp sets. This stamp is quite elegant.
Have a wonderful Sunday.
