Anyhow, it is time for a new Shining the Light Challenge over at ODBD and goodness I tell you, Chris, our wonderful coordinator comes up with some amazing challenges. Thanks, girl!!

All right, on to my creations...yes, you have heard right, I have two cards to share with you all today. I've made a feminine and a masculine card. Let's start with the feminine one

Thank You


Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, Simply Chartreuse, Basic Grey Marjolaine

Stamps: ODBD Mini Tags 2 

Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black

Accessories: Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two, Zva Creative small rhinestone flourish, Recollections clear rhinestones, Recollections butterfly, Prim sheer flower, satin pleated ribbon, Wilton white paper doily

I really like the way this one came out ;D. Now on to my second and a little more masculine card

God is our refuge..........


Paper: PTI Rustic Cream, Kraft, Basic Grey Archaic

Stamps: ODBD Keep My Lamp Burning

Ink: SU! Close to Cocoa, Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Vintage Photo, ODBD Olive,

MayArts Twill Ribbon, green/cream gingham ribbon from my stash, silver cross charm

I have not made a masculine card in a while, and thought that the "Keep My Lamp Burning" stamp set was just perfect for it, plus, I was in need of a "man" card :D:D.

If you have a minute I'd really like to know what you think about these two cards and after that make sure you'll head on over to see what

and our Guest Designer for May/June   Rosemary

have come up with, you will LOVE their creations!!

To read about all of the details and what else is going on over at ODBD make sure you'll check out the ODBD Blog.

Well, this is it for me for today, thanks so very much for stopping by today and making my day a happy day!!

Have a blessed and super creative day my friends!!
