ODBDSLC37 - Anything but a card

Hello Everyone!!! Today is Saturday! I have longed for this day all week, only because I tend to be a home body and was gone every single day this week at appointments and activities for the children. I told my husband that nothing will stand in the way of me and my stamps today! LOL

Since it is Saturday, it is the day of Our Daily Bread Designs Shining Light Challenge! This week's Challenge is.... 
Do you sometimes get in a slump and just create cards with your stamps...I know I do. This week we want you to create anything but a card. It need not be can be a bookmark, tag, etc. I hope this helps you think outside of the box.

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, November 18. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday.

The project I created for today is a One Sheet Pocket Book and I included tags! The tags I used my Cricut and the font Walk in my Garden.  The cover of my pocket book uses the stamp set Randi's Song stamped in Teal ink and sponged with Olive ink. Using Stickles I outlined the leaf. I used the Bind It All for the binding. 

To decorate the tags, I used the Amazing Grace background stamped in Espresso ink (stamped off) then I used the  Randi's Song  and multiple verse sets (see below) to encourage a very dear friend going through a difficult time. 

Here are some more details:
Accessories: Bind It All, sponge, Stickles, May Arts Ribbon, Basic Grey Brads, Cricut, Walk in my Garden Font
