Happy Monday Everyone!
I am so excited to share another Anniversary Challenge for Our Daily Bread Designs and this week's product review for Stamp and Create!!

Today is day 3 of the special Second Anniversary Celebration at Our Daily Bread designs! We are so enjoying viewing all your creations thus far!! While all the challenges are for one day only we have extended the closing time for the China Challenge (Sunday's Challenge) to 8pm EST tonight! Both the China Challenge and today's challenge will be announced tomorrow when the next challenge is issued on the ODBD Blog!

The challenges are continuing with an Anniversary theme in celebration of ODBD's Anniversary celebration. As with all our challenges, it was announced on the blog on Mar. 7th so you could get a head start, and we hope you had a chance to do that, but if not there is still time!

Since Silver and Gold are the traditional gifts for those special milestones in a marriage... the 25th and 50th Anniversaries. Today's challenge is to make a project that includes silver and/ or gold. The only stipulation is that it must be new work, no back links please! Be sure to place a link to this challenge in your post, and be sure to link your project to Mr Linky below by 8pm EST tonight! The winner will be chosen by random and will receive a $25.00 Gift Certificate for stamps from the ODBD Store! The winner will be announced on the ODBD Blog post tomorrow when the next challenge is issued! *If uploading to SCS or other on line gallery, please use key word ODBD2AC3.

Here is my creation for the silver/gold challenge using one of my fave stamp sets at Our Daily Bread Designs: Happy Birthday!!


I colored my image with copics. There is lots of silver although it is very hard to see in the photo. The edges are sewn with silver thread, the SEI Claire Paper has embossed silver diamonds all over it and I added several silver baubles. The bow is created with the bow easy and the border on the bottom is the Spellbinders Lattice Border die. The image is framed with the Spellbinders lattice die. The envelope in the background is created using Priscilla Style's envelope die found here. It was fun and easy to make.

Hi Chris~

TWO Wonderful Cards! I love that watering can with flowers! It is one of my favorite stamps from ODBD. You really do a fantastic job coloring. I love the shadows and highlights on the watering can itself! I feel like I could smell those beautiful flowers!

The other card is adorable, fortunately, I have found my Prince Charming. Of course, I did have to kiss a few frogs first! LOL

He IS Able,
