ODBDSLC32 Leaves

Hello and Happy Saturday! Ahhh Saturday, my second favorite day of the week. It doesn't matter in my home that there is nothing planned for the day, the only thing that matters is my husband is home! For me, that normally means a little bit more freedom in my routine and schedule. Today, however, our family is going out to the neighborhood to minister to someone and do some raking. I have to continue to be purposeful and teach my children to seek out the needs of others and serve them without complaining. Now, notice that emphasis on without complaining! I sometimes struggle with that, but I am determined to get it right and to be a positive example to my children!

Today is the Shining Light Challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs! Our challenge this week is  challenging you to use leaves on your creation. It can be on your designer paper, your embellishments, or on your image. This does not mean to use gold leafing....unless you are gold leafing leaves.

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, October 14.  One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday.

Here are the details of the card I created for the challenge...



Stamp Set: Happy Birthday from Our Daily Bread Designs
Cardstock: Neenah White, Pomegranite
Accessories: Nestibilities, Gold Skeleton Leaves, Scor-pal, Pomegranite Ribbon, Dimensionals, Dew Drops, Mini Glue Dots, Sponge, Copic Markers



You will definitely want to hop on over to the Shining Light Challenge Team blogs... these women are so talented and such a tremendous blessing to work with, be sure to send them some encouraging words!


Have a BLESSED weekend!
