This is my second post of the day, if you are here for the Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge Team Blog Hop You are in the right place, for the Saturday Spotlight challenge, please scroll down to the next post.


Hi Everyone!! The day has finally arrived for the reveal of our new Challenge Team at Our Daily Bread Designs!!! We decided to introduce the new team with a hop/Scavenger Hunt. If you came here from America Kuhn- Cards By America you are in the right place, if not you may want to start at the beginning, at the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog. I am so excited to have been asked to be a part of this new venture with Our Daily Bread Designs as the Challenge Team Coordinator and work with this wonderfully talented team. What an honor to do to things I love: stamp and share my Love for the Lord!!

One blessed hopper who emails me the correct items and places to find these items will randomly be chosen to win the Light of the World stamp set!!!

Here is what you need to find on the blogs for the scavenger Hunt:
1. red ric rac
2. Psalm 28:7
3. mittens
4. damask
5. palm trees
6. daisies
7. polka dotted tea pot
(please note all items are on sidebars or heading bars and backgrounds, not in the posts themselves).



Here is the list of the challenge team members who will be participating in the Blog Hop and where the items for the scavenger hunt will be found.

Christine Okken- ChristineCreations
Natalie Dever- Dougnat Diaries
Francie Gumprecht- Francies Fancy
Sabrina Jackson- SJButterfly Dreams
Patter Cross- Triple the Scraps
America Kuhn- Cards By America
Chris Olsen- Twinkles Glow With Stamps

If you find missing links, simply check back here for the next person in the list and mention in your comment that you were not able to comment on that person's post. This is meant to be FUN FOR ALL.... NOT frustration! It's a game with a chance to win a Light Of the World Stamp set... and we understand if someone's blog is "down". Often you can try again later and get on... but if you try and can't leave a comment on someone's blog, simply tell us in your end comment who you were not able to get and we'll still enter you in the drawing!



All you have to do to be eligible to win is:
  • Complete the hop, leaving comments on each blog and returning here to tell us you have visited each blog and left a comment.
  • Email me at chrisolsenodbd@aol.com with the names of the items and the blogs you found them at. (eg. Kelley-loaf of bread)
  • Do this by Thursday Jan 28 at 8 p.m. EST
  • Check back on the Our Daily Bread designs blog on Saturday January 30 to see who the winner is!!!
Here is my creation for the hop!!! We all used the Light house stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs since the challenge will be called the Shining the Light Challenge. The stamp set above is the very first set Kelley made available in her store!!



When I made this card/calendar, I had in mind family members who are near and dear to my heart who have been going through a very difficult time. I wanted them to know that I was thinking of them. Since their hardship will end at a certain time in their life, this gives the opportunity to count down to the end. I hope this gives them peace. The image and verse is from the Light of the World Stamp set and the sentiment tag is from Praying for You. The calendar pages I printed off the internet. I wanted to keep it fairly simple and not girly since it is for a couple.

Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs: Praying for you, Light Of the World
Paper: Basic Grey Marrakech, Bitter chocolate Bazill, white, SU Pacific Point
Accessories: Swirls Embossing Folder, sewing machine, Circle Spellbinder Dies, blue gems, Pacific Point Ribbon

I hope you enjoyed this creation and the hop. You are at the end and only need go to the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog, leave a comment that you have visited each of the team members and email me at chrisolsenodbd@aol.com with the names of the items and the blogs you found them at.

Thanks for stopping by and for all your comments. They are greatly appreciated. We hope to see you at our first weekly challenge on February 6 at the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog.

blessings,
Chris
