Happy Saturday everyone!

It's time for another Shining the Light Challenge: ODBDSLC19

The team would like you to create a bookmark. We thought it was time to do something other than a card. This challenge will be up for two weeks due to the holiday and new release on July 1st!

To make the challenge even more fun, ODBD 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, July 8. One random winner will be chosen!

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.

Here is my bookmark:



I used two Our Daily Bread Design  sets for this bookmark! The cattails are from ODBD's With Heartfelt Sympathy and the wonderful sentiment is ODBD's Serenity Prayer! One, I know, I need to read every day.  That is why I am going to use this so that when I mark my pages I can read it over and over! I used the brayering tech I learned from classes with Michelle Zindorf and her tech found HERE!

Please check ODBD's Blog for all the details!

Please stop by to see what the other Our Daily Bread designs Challenge Team has created for you:



Thanks for stopping by. Hope you will play along with us!
Have a marvelous weekend!
