Hello again! What an honor and day of excitement to go over to the Our Daily Bread Designs blog and see one of my creations and my name highlighted as receiving the Shining the Light Award. Thank you to ODBD for such a wonderful blessing and choosing me for Shining the Light Award!
Todays Challenge from ODBD: Since it is February and we are acknowledging national hero’s (President’s day) or people who are special to us (Valentine’s Day) in the U.S. , the challenge team is challenging you to acknowledge and case a crafter you admire or a creation you admire changing just two elements to make it our own.
Well, I chose the VERY talented Chris Olsen and THIS project to case but I accidentally made a few more than 2 changes -
Here is what I changed...
2. I changed the color scheme
3. I changed the shape of the Nestibilities and did not use an embossing folder on it
4. I used the Martha Stewart branch punches and added some gems
I hope I am not disqualified from the challenge for adding TWO more! :) If I am...let me know and I can make another project!
I chose Chris as my inspiration based on MORE than just her Paper crafting talent - I chose Chris Olsen as my inspiration because she has allowed her light to shine in many different venues. She always has an encouraging word and has gone out of her way to be extra kind to me. I do not know Chris, outside of blogging and the love she has for the LORD, that she has shared through blogging...I feel she has shared the love of Christ through her actions and kind words too. Thank you, Chris!
In 1Thessalonians 5:2-3 it says, We always thank God for all of you, mentioning you in our prayers. We continually remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ
While I was stamping today, I accidentally grabbed my brown Memento ink pad instead of black and didn't really like it - but decided to go with it anyways and not waste my card stock. As I was coloring this sweet bird, I wanted to add a little more dimension to the eyes and the beak, so I grabbed my black marker and outlines the edges.
Here are a few more details:

Well, I am very tired from a late night last evening and am ready to call it quits for the day! I hope you have a blessed week! Thanks so much for stopping by!
