Saturday, January 7, 2012 with the New, out with the Old

Hello and happy Saturday stamping friends. Wow, we have survived the first week of the new year, my kids are back in school, hubby back to work, and some routine has settled back in. I have a card to share with you all that I have made for this weeks Shining the Light Challenge over at Our Daily Bread Designs and the challenge this week is:

"In with the new....out with the Old"

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, January 13th 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, January 13th at 8 a.m. EST.
