It is time for another Our Daily Bread Designs' Shining the Light Challenge... This time we have a recipe to follow...  L-E-A-F!

Pick a minimum of three items that begin with these letters when you create.  (ex. L-ace, A-cetate, E-mbossing Powder & F-oil)
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, October 28th at 8 p.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword ODBDSLC127. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to our challenge.  And don't forget to tell us what your three items from the acronym are!  :-)

And my creation for the week... and yes I managed to use all FOUR!!!

L-eaf die cut, E-mbossing folder, A-cetate Shaker Window, F-lower Soft

and the lovely stamp, Apple Seed...

It's been a while since I created a shaker card. So this rotation I opted to tuck some Autumn Flower Soft in the window for interest. I love this quote. It is appropriate for every season and I can't help but think of caramel apples this time of year! YUM!

Make sure to stop by and visit my sister sticks! They have some wonderful creations to share! And don't forget to leave them some love!
