ODBDSLC82....Let's use Pink!!!

Hello and happy Saturday my stamping friends!  WOW, this week has just flown by and I have not had much creative time :C  Maybe next week will be better!
Since it is Saturday I have Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge to share with you all and this weeks challenge is:

Think Pink and Encouragement in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness(it need not be on the theme of breast cancer but it must be pink and have a verse or sentiment of encouragement)

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, November 4 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, November 4 at 8 a.m. EST.If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC82. When creating your posts on blogs please include a direct link to the challenge.

So, let me share with you all what I came up with. I still can't put the this wonderful new set called "Praying for a Cure". There are a few very near and dear people in my life that have been diagnosed with breast cancer. My mother in law, my friend and neighbor Marianne and my friend Ruby, I've know her as long as I have been in the US and she is like a big sister to me. I tell you, GOD is good and he healed all three of these wonderful ladies in my life! To honor them and everyone else out there effected by breast cancer I made this little card.

Praying for a Cure!!!


Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, DCWV textured cs in pink, My Minds Eye Madison Avenue

Stamps: ODBD Praying for a Cure

Ink: VersaColor Ink Spot #34 Orchid

Accessories: Spellbinders Labels 20, Picot Edge Circles, pink cotton crochet lace, handmade stick pin, Zva Creative small pearl flourish, Prima Burlap leaf, paper roses, Recollections Extra Fine Glitter in Blush, Recollections ink and white half pearls

I know this is a pretty simple card, but I really wanted to focus on this fabulous stamp set.

To see what my fellow Design sisters have come up with, make sure you'll check out






and our sweet Guest Designer Sue

have come up with. I know I say this every week, but these ladies are beyond talented!

For all of the details and to see who won last weeks challenge and to see what else is going on over at ODBD make sure you'll check out the ODBD Blog.

Now comes the hardest part of this post. We have to say goodbye to one of our sweet and beyond talented sisters of the Challenge Team. Pat, has to step down from her position due to health issues and it is with a sad heart and lots of tears that I am writing this. Pat, I will MISS you my friend!! I know you'll have to do what is best for you and I pray that GOD will heal those hands of yours and that you will be back when the time is right!  Love you Sis.!!!

Well, this is it for me for today. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for stopping by to see me today. Have a blessed and super creative weekend!

Oh, before I go, does anyone out there know how to get the signature working in blogger after installing IE9? I can't get my signature (the pretty one with the butterflies and all) to work. ALL I get is a big red X. If you know how to get it back with IE9 installed, please e-mail me.....THANK YOU!!

I'm sorry I haven't visited lately, but sure glad I did today. This card is VERY pretty and I'm sure that it will be a wonderful gift to the one who receives it. The lace and flowers are such a nice feminine finish to the card!
