Happy Saturday....

stamping friends and welcome to a new Shining the Light Challenge over at Our Daily Bread Designs. This week Chris is challenging us to

use lacing on your cards or projects. This is not using lace but actually lacing ribbon, lace, string, or paper through something.

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, September 16 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, September 16 at 8 a.m. EST.If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC76. When creating your posts on blogs please include a direct link to the challenge.

Accessories: Spellbinders Lacey Ovals, Labels 10, Fancy Tags Two, lace with pearls from my stash, hand dyed seam binding, hand crocheted rolled rose (those little things are addicting :D:D), crystal sprig

Gorgeous, just love your sprigs of gems and your crochet flower is just gorgeous. lovely weaving of your ribbon..... I was going to send you some of my crochet flowers but I see you do them yourself and yours are much more fancy then what I have done, now I will have to do some more thinking :)

Well, my sweet Friend, you have created a card that by its soft greens, lace and pearls bespeaks peace and joy - just as our friends bring us - whether in person or in our hearts!!
Love the dainty look of the ribbon laced through the Spellbinder, and the crocheted flower is breathtaking - I should have paid more attention when my Mom tried to teach me how to crochet!! Fabulous - and straight from your heart!! Hugs

Jonia said...
