ODBDSLC26 Punches or Dies

Hello Everyone - HAPPY SATURDAY! Thank you for stopping by! The past few days, I have been fervently working on making some Hospital Binders for the Card Ministry Team. Friday, I cut 1800 pieces of cardstock!!! My arms and shoulders were sooo sore. I am SO thankful for my Carl Cutter! I was able to cut 13 sheets of cardstock at a time. I cut 1800, 8 1/2"  x 11" card stock 2 times down to 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" rectangles for layers. After cutting all of that card stock, I had NO desire to stamp... so I hope to have time to play today!!! :)

Today is the Shining Light Challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs! Our challenge this week is to use punches or dies in your creation! SOOO EASY, Hey?

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize , $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for thprize must be submitted by Thursday, August 26th on the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday.

I was just thinking this card could go either male or female for sure.Great job and I love the sentiment,
Wow can't wait to see what the binders look like that you had to cut all that chipboard for. I would have gladly helped you cut if you needed help, just ask anytime.
