ODBDSLC66 and some news

Good morning my stamping friends!  I hope you all are enjoying a relaxing weekend so far. It is Saturday and that means it is time for a new Shining the Light Challenge over at Our Daily Brad Designs. Today marks 66 challenges in this fun and super cool challenge and Chris, our coordinator has come up with a super simple challenge for this week.

This weeks challenge:

Is to make anything that uses Our Daily Bread Designs stamps!! Is that easy peasy or what?!! This week's challenge will last for 2 weeks.

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 7. One random winner will be chosen and announced  Saturday, 9. July. If you are not using ODBD stamps, please do not enter more than once. Additional entries without using ODBD stamps will not be commented on or will they qualify for prizes.

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 7 at 8 p.m. EST.If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC66. When creating your posts on blogs please include a direct link to the challenge.

And here is what I came up with.  I actually made two cards for this weeks challenge as this also marks my LAST official post for the Challenge Team!!!  Kelley, the wonderful owner of ODBD, has asked me if I would like to move over to the Design Team, and I said yes!  So starting 1. July, you will see me over at the regular DT. Since I love the Shining the Light Challenges so much.....really, LOVE them, I will be providing a sample just about every week and I will continue to help Chris with the commenting.

It as been an amazing 18 months on this wonderful Challenge Team and I love you all my sisters!!

Also some more news. Do you remember our Guest Designer from a couple of months back, Lori Ulrich aka Saintsrule? Well, Lori will be a permanent fixture on the Challenge Team, so look for Lori's amazing creations starting on 7. July!!!!
