Happy Saturday everyone!

Hope you are experiencing some of this lovely "Spring" weather.
After temps in the 30's and 40's for the past two weeks, it is suppose to be in the 60's today and 70's tomorrow! WaHoooo!

It is time for another ODBD's Shining The Light Challenge!


This weeks ODBDSLC55 is to  
use a bird image, punched bird, or birds on your designer paper.

To make the challenge even more fun, ODBD's 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, April 7. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. If you are not using ODBD stamps, please do not enter more than once. Additional entries without using ODBD stamps will not be  qualify for prizes.

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 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 April 7 at 8 p.m. EST.If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC55. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

Please see ODBD's Blog for all the details!

Here is my creation!


Our Daily Bread Designs Path of Life and Sing to the Lord were used. The images were colored using copic markers and prisma colored pencils. The bird and flowers were cut out and popped up around the frame that was created using Spellbinders Blossom 3. The border was scored using the Scor-Pal and ribbon was added!

Please stop by to see what the ODBDDT have created!

We hope you will play along with us.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a blessed weekend! Hugs!
