Hello Friends! It has been a week now since we introduced some new hair balls to our family, and every one seems to be adjusting well. Thank you all for your encouraging words and prayers! I have to say... I never used to be a huge cat lover, I have always been more of a dog lover. However, I have had a change of heart and while I still love dogs, I am just a plain old animal lover! LOL I have an illness you see...if I see an animal I think I need it and then proceed to get it! *wink* My husband is a big softie and normally lets me get more critters. Every year, we have new "critters" here. 

 Today is Our Daily Bread Designs Shining Light Challenge day! Well...Christmas is just around the corner and when you think of Christmas classic carols is...We Three Kings...Our challenge to you today is to choose three of these items to use on your card: gold, silver, blue, red, snowflakes, ornament, Our Daily Bread Designs stamps.

This will be our last challenge before the holidays. Our winner will be announced on Sunday, December 26. Our first challenge for 2011 will be on January 8 and with that,I am say to say this is the last project as Challenge Design Team Member... It has been so much fun and such a blessing. I am VERY excited to be remaining on the team in a NEW capacity so I will share that information with you soon!

My take on the challenge was to make an ornament, silver, red and an Our Daily Bread Designs stamp! :) I can't wait to see what you make!

I used the creamy, shimmery Creative Inspirations Paint in Silver Frost to paint the puzzle pieces and decorated the wreath with Tear Drops and gems for the holly.

I made this cute tag using Silver Embossing Powder!

Here are a few more details:
Stamps: Peace and Joy
Cardstock: White, Red, 
Accessories: Silver Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Versamark,  Silver Cord, Organdy Ribbon, Tear Drops, Mini Glue Dots

Awesome project! That would be ideal for me as I hate measuring all that stuff out. It seems to land everywhere but in the bowl. LOL. Can't wait to hear your news and am glad your new family additions are adjusting. Merry Christmas!
