Happy Thursday everyone!

We have had some unbelieveable warm weather this past week, 40's, 50's and even into the 60's. I know it won't last but it sure has been nice.

Well, it's Thursday and time for another Stamping In Time Challenge (SNTODBD29)!

 The assignment is Our Daily Bread Design stamps. The challenge this time is Christmas in February! No we are not celebrating Christmas in February, but we are going to start working on our Christmas 2011 cards. Don't you just love it when you have your Christmas Cards made ahead of time and aren't stressing at the last minute? If you do not own any ODBD Christmas stamps yet, you can get creative with the ones that you do have. I am sure you can work some Christmas Spirit into your February creations! We look forward to seeing what you create using ODBD stamps! Remember, the more you play the more you increase your chance to win!

Please see ODBD's Blog for all the details!

Here is my Christmas Card!
The sentiment from ODBD "Luke 2-11 was stamped and then the background was embossed using an SU embossing folder. A Spellbinders frame was cut out using the Grand Calibur and then embossed. I stamped the poinsettia from ODBD Blessed Christmas  twice, colored using copics, cut them out and popped them up. I added Zva Pearls to the center of the flower, the frame and the corners of the background.

Betty (gbedwright) has a beauty to share with you. Please stop by and leave some love!

We hope you will play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a fabulous day!

This is also for the Stampin B's Challenge to add a flower!
