Let's Tag it!!!

Hello and happy Saturday my sweet stamping friends!! It is time again for a new Shining the Light Challenge over at Our Daily Bread Designs and this weeks challenge is:

We don't want to see just a tag, we want to see a tag added to your card or 3d project.

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 Friday, August 19 at 8 a.m. EST. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. 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 Friday, August 19 at 8 a.m. EST.If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC72.

This is it for me. I am a little sad today, that we can't be with my MIL. My husbands stepfather died this week and the funeral is today. My husband left yesterday to be with his mom, but the girls and I had to stay behind. If you will say a little prayer for my MIL during this time.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Have a blessed weekend and I hope that you will find some time to play along in this fun "Tag it" challenge. Remember, there is a chance on winning that $ 15 gift certificate ;D

Hi Sabrina, we've sure missed you over at SSIC!! I'm so sorry to hear of your step-FIL's passing. I'm sure she knows how much you'd like to have been there with the family though. I'll say some prayers for her and the rest of the fam. Your card is so beautiful, in colors, in pretty elements, in sentiment. Sometimes it's true that when our hearts are the saddest, our art is the sweetest. Yours however is ALWAYS so gorgeous. I hope your week gets better and safe travels for your hubby. {{hugs}} kris
