ODBDSLC39 Wishing for Snowflakes...

Hello and Happy Saturday everyone!!! Before I go on to my post, I want to remind you that I have some Blog Candy HERE.

Once you are done reading and hopping through the talented Design Team member blogs, don't forget about the FABULOUS SALE Our Daily Bread Designs is having!

I have to giggle over my title "wishing for snowflakes" because I am quite confident as much as I want snow, my husband does not want snow! :)

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and this weekend we are relaxing and enjoying one another. I cleaned off my desk on Thanksgiving night and I get to take some extra time to stamp this weekend. It is wonderful just to take some time to slow down and reflect on the many blessings we have been given.
Well, as you know it is Saturday, it is the day of Our Daily Bread Designs Shining Light Challenge! This week's Challenge is....  December is just around the corner...and in most places of the USA comes the cold and/or snowflakes. So this week's challenge is to add snowflakes to your creation (this can be on the dp, punched, the image, your ribbon, and etc.)

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, December 2. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday.

Here is some information on my project... I started with the technique called the Tri-Stair technique and uses the Fancy Fold and Motions Cd from the Technique Junkie Newsletter. You can find information about the cd on my side bar.
