Good morning my stamping friends!! I hope you all had a fabulous week and enjoyed all of the ODBD Celebrations this week! I know I sure did and it was a blast to read all of the comments you, my sweet stamping friend, left! Thank You!!!

Since today is Saturday it is time for a new Shining the Light Challenge and this week we are challenging you to create a card or project with the theme:

 New Life- Since it is the first day of spring during this week in the USA, we want to see creations symbolizing New Life...this can be Easter, or flowers.....etc.  
This week's challenge is a challenge using Our Daily Bread Designs stamps only.  You must use at least one image or sentiment or image to qualify for the challenge.

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, March 24. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. 

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 March 24 at 8 p.m. EST.If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC53.

For my card this week I chose two stamp sets that were released last year and they are Happy Easter  and The Lord Has Risen  and this is what came out :D

Paper: PTI Rustic Cream, Sand colored cs from my stash, Prima Annalee

Stamps: ODBD  Happy Easter , ODBD , The Lord has Risen

Ink: SU Mellow Moss,Memento Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Tattered Rose, VersaFine Onyx Black

Accessories: Spellbinders ODBD Custom Dies Labels 1 (Elegant Ovals), Nestabilities Labels 5 , Zva Creative small pearl flourishes, Recollections half pearls, Copic markers: R11, V000, G21, G99, BG93, Y08, RV23, Mellow Moss colored ribbon, loop trim in cream from my stash, cream trim also from my stash

I know, the colors are not bright and don't look much like Spring, but I was going for a bit more Victorian/Shabby look ;D;D.  What do you think?

This is my interpretation of this weeks challenge if you would like to see what

Lori  (our wonderful guest)

have come up with make sure you head on over there after you leave here ;D.

If you want to find out what else is going on over at ODBD head on over to the ODBD Blog and find out the details to this wonderful challenge and everything else!!

This is it for me for today! I have plans today, I will be heading to the Tucson Rubberstamp and Scrapbook Expo with my oldest. She is super excited, but we have to wait until daddy gets back from a funeral he has to attend this morning, so he can watch the little one.  Yep, my oldest wants some "Mommy time", LOL!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today and making my day a happy day!!

Have a blessed weekend and I hope you'll get to play along!
