SNTODBD46, Faithfully Yours & a Blog Award...

Happy Thursday! Whew! The week has flown by! I apologize for being so quiet this week. (Or maybe you prefer it that way... lol) I have been a little under the weather and working on the computer has been difficult!

So today I am popping in with two cards! The first is for this week's ODBD Stamping In Time Challenge(SNTODBD46)! The assignment is to use Our Daily Bread Design stamps. The challenge this rotation is all about cards with TAG! T= Thankful, A= Appreciation, G= Grateful. You can use an actual tag, create a card that is thankful, shows appreciation, or conveys gratefulness, or you can combine a tag with the themes. Remember, the more you play the more you increase your chance to win! We look forward to seeing what you create using ODBD stamps! Please make sure to hop over to ODBD's blog to find Mr. Linky and used SNTODBD46 when using online galleries! And make sure to check out what the other Bread Sticks have created! Yummy!!!
