Good morning all.

Welcome to our first challenge hosted by our Challenge Team! We are so excited to have weekly challenges and hope you will join us!!!


Since Valentines is quickly approaching, the team is challenging you to use hearts. The hearts can be on your designer paper, in your image, on your embellishments (ribbons, pearls, gems, charms and etc.)

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize, a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Thursday, February 11. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments on your creations, we would love to see them if you have them.

As a way of recognizing those who do use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will also be choosing 1 to 2 creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award. In order to qualify for this award, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by February 11 at 8 p.m. EST.

If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword  ODBDSLC1. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

Be sure to check out ODBD Blog for all the details!

This is the sample I made for the challenge!




The flowers popped up around the Spellbinders Nestibillities are from ODBD "Sing To The Lord"!  The verse is from ODBD " Love One Another" The flowers were stamped, colored with copics, embossed, cut out and popped up! Basic Grey d/p was punched with M/S heart punch.

Check out the samples the rest of the ODBD Challenge Design Team created!


Hope you will play along! Can't wait to see what you create!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a wonderful day!
