 The day has finally arrived for the reveal of the new Challenge Team at Our Daily Bread Designs!!! On February 7 we will begin our first challenge as a team. These challenges are weekly and there is lots of fun planned, so be sure to stop back by Our Daily Bread Blog


Today the new team has a lot of fun planned for you with a blog hop and scavenger hunt!!! You will have the opportunity to meet the new challenge team, view their creations and hunt for the items for the scavenger hunt. It's a game with a chance to win a Light Of the World Stamp set. Check out the details on Our Daily Breads Blog!

Since the name of our Challenge will be called "Shining the Light" named after the very first stamp set Kelley came out with, "Light of the World". The team has created cards or projects based on that theme!!!

Here is the list of the challenge team members who will be participating in the Blog Hop and where the items for the scavenger hunt will be found.

Here is what you need to find on the blogs for the scavenger hunt:

1. red ric rac

3. mittens

4. damask

5. palm trees

6. daisies
