Hello, hello, hello....

my stamping friends!!!!  Can you believe it is Saturday already? Well, it is and that means it is time for a new Shining the Light Challenge over at Our Daily Bread Designs.   This week we have a pretty cool challenge....are you ready?

Do you sometimes get in a slump and just create cards with your stamps...I know I do. This week we want you to create anything but a card. It need not be can be a bookmark, tag, etc. I hope this helps you think outside of the box.

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, November 18. 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 November 18 at 8 p.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC37. When creating your posts on blogs please include a direct link to the challenge.

This challenge was really fun for me....have a look and see

Thinking of You


Paper: K&Company Wild Saffron (still LOVE this paper ;D)

Stamps:  ODBD Thinking of You

Ink: Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Vintage Photo, StampinUp Close to Cocoa

Accessories: Spellbinders Nesties Labels 5, Fancy Tags, Standard Circles Large, Prima Hydrangeas in yellow distressed with Vintage Photo Distressing Ink, Flourish was cut with my Cricut Expression and the Storybook cartridge, antique copper brad, Filling of the cup:  Almond Biscotti, tea, Lindt Truffles ;D(yum!!!)

So, what do you think? Are you inspired to join us in this fun challenge? Remember you do not have to make a 3D project, you can make a bookmark, tags (they all would make pretty nice little gifts for a teacher, a name it ;D;D)

The idea for this cup came from the new Scor-Pal Ezine, but I have to confess that I changed it just a little, I made the cup a tad bit taller because I knew I wanted to fill it with all of those goodies :D:D

Would you like to see what my Challenge Team Sisters have come up with? Well, head on over to see
