Hello and Good morning.......

The team would like you to create a bookmark. We thought it was time to do something other than a card. This challenge will be up for two weeks due to the holiday and new release on July 1st!

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, July 8.

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 July 8 at 8 p.m. EST.

If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC19.

When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

All right, are you ready for my version of this weeks challenge?

Thinking of You

Paper: PTI Dark Chocolate, Rustic Cream, K&Company Ancestry

Stamps: ODBD Scripture Series 1, Thinking of You

Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, VersaMark, golden detail embossing powder, Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Tea Dye

Accessories: Nesties Labels 6, bookmark was cut with my Cricut Expression and my Home Accents cartridge, Prima flowers and mini roses, Zva Creative mini roses in white, Zva Creative small flourishes, Martha Stewart Monarch butterfly punch, Recollections golden half pearls, ivory trim (found it at Tuesday Morning ;D) golden rhinestones by Studio18, golden 1/4" silk ribbon, eyelet, foam tape, 3D foam dots, 2 pearls from my stash to finish off the bookmark

As you can see I cheated a little and made a pocket for my bookmark as well, but I wanted to give this as a gift and thought it would be perfect to have a little pocket to go with it. Actually, that pocket is not little at does measure 5x7" as an A2 card would have been too small. The label for the bookmark was cut at 2 1/4" and 2 1/2" and is quite sturdy as I cut the larger size in cs and in DP and layered the final 2 1/4" piece of cs on top. You can see that the scripture 'just' fits on this 2 1/4" label.

What do you think....does this make a nice little gift?

Now that you have seen my version are you ready to see some more amazing bookmarks?

Come on and see what





have come up with. If you came from the ODBD Blog you already know that America, Christine and Natalie will leave us at the end of the month. I truly enjoyed working with them and getting to know them a little better through blogland. I wish you all the BEST for the future and I will see you on your blogs as I am a follower/subscriber and will stalk you,hehe!!

All right, before I get all teary eyed, let me just finish my post here ;D.

Remember that this weeks challenge will last for 2 weeks as next week is a holiday and the new release, so the Shining the Light Challenge will take a short break and we will be back the second week of July. I will be checking the ODBD Blog to come and check your bookmarks out and leave you some love. With this said, I thank you for stopping by today!!!

Put your thinking hat on and shower us with bookmarks,LOL!!

Have a fabulously blessed and creative day!!
