ODBDSLC94 - Love Recipe

Happy Saturday All!! I hope you are all having a great weekend!! Today I am popping in to share this week's Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light challenge!!

This Week’s Challenge-

Use items that remind you of Valentine’s including the word Love or Loves, hearts, lace and the colors red, white, pink and white, or both (must be more than minimal..make these colors the main colors!!!)

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!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Friday, February 3rd at 8 a.m. EST. 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 commented on or 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 Friday, February 3rd at 8 a.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC94. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to our challenge.

Now on to my take for the challenge:

I love red and white! This is a go to combo for me! I selected some a fun flourish by Cheery Lynn Designs (available at Our Daily Bread Designs) to accent my two heart dies (also CLD). I used a fun paper by K & Company that looks like a newspaper print. I also embossed the top red panel with a fun print. I love those conversation hearts but hate the taste! lol...

I want to say a special good bye today. Our fabbo guest designer, Wanda Cullen, will be finishing her guest term this month. Wanda is a wonderfully gifted and sweet crafter! I will miss you so!!!

Thanks for stopping in and until next time...
