ODBDSLC50.....and some exciting news.......

over at Our Daily Bread Designs!!!!

Hello my stamping friends, I hope you all had a wonderful week. Mine was real busy and I did not get to post when I wanted to post.....sorry!!!

Anyhow, today marks the Shining the Light Challenge # 50....goodness, where has time gone?

Before we go on to this week's challenge, we would like to announce and welcome Pat Smethers as one of our full-time Challenge Team designers.  Pat is so sweet and adds an eclectic style to our creations.  Welcome Pat!!!!

We would also like to introduce our new guest designer for March/April.  This young lady has been an active player in our challenges and does a beautiful job with her ODBD Stamps!!  Welcome Lori Ulrich from Saints Rule!!  We can't wait to have you join us next week!!!

Here is a little intro about Lori:

My name is Lori Ulrich.  My husband and I share our small Kentucky farm with 4 beautiful St. Bernards and 3 handsome English Shephards.  We also raise sheep and have a retired racehorse living on our place to mix it up a little!  As you can imagine life is never dull here on our little slice of heaven!  My oldest step-son and his family live less than 20 minutes away!  So I get to see all 5 grandbabies often!  Our youngest is attending university in Virginia completing his Master’s in Missions. 

When I’m not stamping, I work as an accountant with a utility company.  I first discovered scrapbooking in 2003 and it proved very therapeutic for me.  A dear friend suggested stamping in 2009 which I took to like a duck does to water!  Stamping has proved to be such a blessing for me and a very powerful outreach.  I try to spread God’s love to those who are ill, need cheering up or a hearty hello!  I happened upon Our Daily Bread Designs in 2009 and instantly became a fan.  I love being able to share God’s word with those who receive my cards.  I appreciate the opportunity to guest for a few months.  It’s always fun to create!  Blessings…

And now on to our challenge!!!

This weeks challenge:  Is a sketch!!  Since Pat is now a full time designer for our Challenge team, Chris thought it would be nice to welcome her by honoring her with a "sketch case"
