Hello and Happy Saturday!! I hope you are having a great weekend!! This is my BIG BIRTHDAY weekend, so my Sweetie took me shopping and out to dinner tonight. I am HOPING to get a Bamboo Fun for my stamp designing! 

Today, I get to craft all day, as my husband is home. I ended up taking the past two days off - I was just needing a break and a time of refreshment. The kids and I ended up playing Canasta, Trumpet and watching movies due to rainy weather!

 This week, I have the Shining the Light Challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs to share with you.  This Week's Challenge:  The team would like you to distress it. You can use ink, tearing, or ripping...whatever it takes to give a distressed look somewhere on your creation.

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, July 29 on the Our Daily Bread Designs BlogOne random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. We will even choose a few Shining Light Awards for those who participate. Check out the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog for even more details!
