Happy Saturday everyone!

It's Saturday and time for another ODBDSLC53

This weeks challenge: "New Life"

 Since it is the first day of spring during this week in the USA, we want to see creations symbolizing New Life...this can be Easter, flowers.....etc.

This week's challenge is a challenge using Our Daily Bread Designs stamps only. You must use at least one ODBD image or sentiment to qualify for the challenge!

To make the challenge even more fun, ODBD  will be giving 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, March 24. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday.

We will again 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 March 24 at 8 p.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC53. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

Please see ODBD's Blog for all the detsils!

Here is my Spring Creation:

For my Spring Creation I chose Easter and Flowers! To frame  ODBD's "He Will Rise",  I first cut out and embossed Spellbinders Elegant Ovals sold exclusively at ODBD's Store.  I then stamped "He Will Rise" in the center of the Eternity Frame. I used Daffodil Corner, colored using copics, cut out and popped up around  the frame! The decorative border was done using M/S punch. 

Please stop by and check out what the ODBD Challenge Team have created for you!

We hope you will play along with us.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a beautiful day! Hugs!
