SNTODBD49 - Peace, Goodwill and Joy!



Welcome to another Stamping in Time with Betty! It is time for ODBD Stamping In Time Challenge (SNTODBD49)! The assignment is to use Our Daily Bread Design stamps. The challenge this rotation is the same as last rotations. We are in crunch time for mailings and gift giving. So, we are creating MORE Christmas cards, gift packaging, gift ideas or anything festive you can think of to share with a Christmas theme! Remember, the more you play the more you increase your chance to win! We look forward to seeing what you create using ODBD stamps!

And my details...

Has inspiration ever struck you in the middle of the night? It hit me a few nights ago. It may have had more to do with the hacking cough I have had for a week but I will lay it on inspiration... lol... So after looking at my clock for the umpteenth time and finally deciding to get up at 2:30AM I wandered into my craft room. Oddly, I was wired! (And that I will blame on the cough syrup...) So I pulled out a new paper pad from Simple Stories and started to play. I found the base layer first and then decided I had to add in the houndstooth and after MUCH debate settled on the red winter sayings layer. I pulled out a Sizzix die for my flourish and holly plus some spellbinders to frame my fabulous verse from ODBD's Christmas Blessings. A little jute and a button from my button jar finished it all off! I'm really liking this mixing patterned paper journey I'm on... Thanks for stopping in and don't forget to check out what the other design team members have for you... Betty and Grace
