ODBD Bread Basket

Saturday, February 14, 2009

It's Saturday and the weekend has finally arrived. Yeah!! I hope it is a better weekend than this week. Our household has been battling the flu. Both my girls as well as myself have been affected. I apologiaze for not posting yesterday as I said I would. Unfortunately," life happens when you are busy making other plans."


I am so excited to be sharing a card and a 2-5-7-10 box today. The card I received for Valentine's Day from my ODBD design team sistah, Angel. We had a challenge amongst the designer team to use one of the Our Daily Bread Design's stampsets and make a Valentine card and send it to another team member. I was the lucky recipient of this GORGEOUS card from Angel. She used the I Am the Way set from Our Daily Bread Designs. It can be found here. This is so much more beautiful in person than in the picture I took. Thanks Angel!! Angel has a lot of awesome creations. If you have a moment, you can visit her blog here for inspiration!

The 2-5-7-10 box was made for yesterday's Limited Supply Challenge on Splitcoast (SC207) hosted by one of my other design team sistah's, Judy. Judy's challenge was to "stretch yourself" and do two things that you don't normally do on projects. Make it look like something different than anything in your gallery. Well I stretched......This was my first time ever making a 2-5-7-10 box. I wanted to make something different for my dear husband, Scott, for Valentine's Day. I used an unopened package of River Rock CS from Stampin Up. River Rock is just not one of the colors I would normally choose. Thirdly, I used a Polka dot and Posies roller that I bought a few years ago from SU. I have never used a roller before. I even blew myself away.... I didn't use any embellishments!!! LOL!!! All of my friends know that I love lots of glitz and embellishments! I only used ribbon to tie it together. Even the ribbon is a first. I got this ABC ribbon from a RAK. I don't normally use ribbon like this. I think this 2-5-7-10 box turned out pretty cute. I think my husband will love the Lindt Dark Chocolate Truffles I put inside!! lol! The toad and saying came from a stampset I bought two years ago from SU called UNFROGETTABLE! The stamps are very darling with just a little touch of humor. This was my first time using it!

Thanks for stopping by today!! Happy Valentine's Day! For an added bit of interest, please share your most memorable Valentine's Day gift or what you received for Valentine's Day this year from your Valentine. My hubby brought home a dozen and a half red roses yesterday for my two daughters and I. He wrote on the tag "For my 3 special ladies". A dozen roses were for me and three each for the girls. After being sick this week, it really meant a lot to Nicki and Meghan as well as myself. Isn't that just so SWEET!!
