Good morning everyone!

Today we are so excited to kick off Our Daily Bread Design's 2nd Anniversary Celebration!


This week we have a special challenge in store for you. The Challenge and Design team will be hosting a daily challenge in honor of Our Daily Bread Designs 2nd Anniversary!! You will have one day to link your challenge creations and not one week.

Since we are celebrating the Anniversary of Our Daily Bread Designs, we will be focusing on gifts for Anniversaries. Cotton is the traditional gift for the second anniversary. Today’s challenge will be to use Cotton in some way…. stamp on cotton, use cotton ribbon, make a cotton flower… get creative.



This is my creation for this weeks ODBD2AC1 Anniversary Challenge. 


The lovely Our Daily Bread Design "The Lord has Risen" was colored using Copic Markers.
The scripture was stamped and embossed using Spellbinder's Fleur De Lis Pendant. The background is a piece of cotton fabric. The butterfly was made using a  Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch. I also added some crystal bling!

I took a close up so that you could see the weave of the cotton fabric that  I used for the background!



Please be sure to visit all the blogs linked below, and leave a comment for each designer, because there is hidden candy on some of the blogs! You will not know where it is, but if your name is chosen and you have left a comment for the designers… you will win it!!! You won’t know how many have candy each day… so be sure to visit them all and leave some love!

Winners of the individual blog candy will be announced by the blog owners who had the candy  the next day on their blogs. There will also be a big announcement  March 19th on  ODBD's Blog  of all the winners!

Each design team member participating in the challenge will have the entire list of links that is listed below, so you can check back at ODBD's Blog for the links, or you can just go from one to the next from their list! So now, go visit, leave some love and then go create something fun and link it to Mr Linky by 8:00pm EST tonight for your chance to win!!!


Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a marvelous day!
