Happy Tuesday Everyone!! If you are here for the Our Daily Bread Designs Anniversary Challenge or my Whimsy creation, your are in the right place. If you would like to see my take on the take on the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge creation, please scroll down to the next post.


Today, as we continue our Anniversary celebration, we are challenging you to use your all time favorite Our Daily Bread designs Set! As with all the challenges this week... this challenge was announced on Mar. 7th on the ODBD Blog so you could get a head start, and we hope you have had the chance to play along with us, but if not, you have until 8:00 pm EST tonight to link your creation to Mr Linky at the ODBD Blog!*If uploading to SCS or other on line gallery, please use keyword ODBD2AC4.

The winner will be chosen by random and will receive ONE FREE SET of their choice from the Our Daily Bread designs store! The winner will be announced tomorrow at the ODBD Blog prior to our Very Special Edition Anniversary Release Sets and Blog Hop! We hope to see your there!

Here is my take on the favorites challenge!! I love so many different sets from Our Daily Bread Designs that this indeed was a hard choice. Since I used Happy Birthday yesterday..... I figured I would use my favorite New Release this month called He is Risen.

It seemed the perfect choice....especially when Betty asked me to make a sample using today's color challenge at Splitcoast Stampers: Orchid Opulence, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry with neutrals of your choice. I also incorporated Betty's Stamping in Time ...On Assignment with Challenge which was to use something new on your creation with stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs.The dp is SU Cottage Wall a new dp I just opened and the charm I just received in a RAK from a friend. I water colored my image and popped it up on dimensionals on my swirled background (dessert option for the color challenge was to use swirls).


Card Recipe:
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs: He is Risen
Paper: SU Cottage Wall, Orchid Opulence, Rich Razzleberry, Bitter Chocolate, Old Olive and white CS
Accessories: Spellbinders Lattice die, Spellbinders scalloped and regular circles, ZVA Creative Pearls, Classic Butterfly punch from MS, Bow Easy, Old Olive Ribbon, butterfly charm.

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters:



Please be sure to visit all the blogs listed with links above, and leave a comment for each designer, because there is hidden candy on some of the blogs! You will not know where it is, but if your name is chosen and you have left a comment for the designers... you will win it!!!

Winners of the individual blog candy will be announced by the blog owners who had the candy on the next day on their blogs. There will also be a big announcement on March 19th on the ODBD Blog recapping ALL the winners... the challenges, the blog candy, and the blog hop winners! So be sure to check back then!!!

*******************************

Today is the Spoon full of Sugar Challenge and Whimsy is the sponsor!!! When Debbie invited the dt at Whimsy to be the guests it just seemed perfect and so fun!!

The challenge at Spoon full of Sugar is to create and Easter card or Project. For my Easter card I used the Sketch Saturday sketch and the image Untamed Love. I just love these carousel horses and they are so much fun to color!!(If you love carousel images, you should see the new releases!! This weekend Proud Mama and Spring Stepping were released !! The Wings of Hope digital is also available as rubber. $1 of the proceeds goes to Haiti. If you have not seen these, you really should check them out.. )

Anywho...on to my creation......

The image was water colored, cut out and popped up on dimensionals. The dp is from My Minds Eye Bloom and Grow. The border along the bottom is created using the MS Garden Trellis punch. The flourish pearls are from Basic Grey.

For more inspiration for the Spoon Full of Sugar, using Whimsy stamps, please visit Denise, Erin, Stacy, Deb and Debbie.
