ODBDSLC122 ~ Our Feathered Friends

It is time for another Our Daily Bread Designs' Shining the Light Challenge... 

We want to see at least one bird or even a flock! This one is all about our feathered friends!   
To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize, a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! If you are not using ODBD stamps, please do not enter more than once. Additional entries without using ODBD stamps will not be commented on nor will they 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 Sunday, September 16th at 8 p.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword ODBDSLC122. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to our challenge.

And here is my creation for the week...


I opted to use some chocolate and cream coordinating designer papers. For my focal sentiment I chose one of Our Daily Bread's classic sets, Sing For Joy.


A fancy flourish die cut adds a bit of whimsy along with a Spellbinders dove die. An altered pearl flourish, paper punched leaves and mulberry blossoms are nestled below.

Please stop by and visit my "sister sticks" to see their lovely creations! And don't forget to leave them some love!

Chris Olsen *** Jan Keen *** Jan Marie Ennenga *** Kathy Roney *** Rosemary Dennis *** and our fabulous guest all this month, Katherine Lawson
