ODBDSLC112....whatcha doing this summer?

Hello and happy Saturday! Welcome to this Saturday's Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge.

This week's challenge:

Since it is officially summer in the USA this week, let's see your summer themed creations. They can include gardening, boats, and etc..... anything related to a summer activity.
If you are not using ODBD stamps, please do not enter more than once or we will have to delete your entries.

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, June 22nd at 8 a.m. EST. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday.
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 three or more of our participants for the Shining the Light Award . In order to qualify for this award or join the challenge, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by Friday, June 22nd at 8 a.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC112. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.
And here is what I came up with. My girls are out of school and my oldest has a Birthday in July, but since my girls have to go back to school in July, my husband and I have decided to give her her Birthday present early....a brand new bicycle. She loves riding her bike so my card for the challenge is about riding your bike. I am using one of the new June stamp sets called "Bicycle" , how perfect is that?
Have a look and see for yourself
