Happy Saturday Everyone!!  I hope you are all having a good start to the weekend and that you have the kind of weather you would like.  While I love the sunshine, I am so hoping for rain here.  It is so dry!! Our lawn is dying and the watering of the bushes, trees and flowers around our yard is becoming cumbersome (we have over 100 bushes and trees and 4 flower gardens.  Oh well..I am not complaining, although it sounds like it. God does know best. we have a new challenge for you at Our Daily Bread Designs.  This week's challenge is:

This week's challenge:Stamp more than once. Use a stamp or part of a stamp more than once on your creation.

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!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Thursday, August 18. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday.

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. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword ODBDSLC25. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

Now on to my take on the challenge:

Last week I created a Don't worry book for my daughter, Nicki, with several Bible verses.  This week I created a bookmark for her to use to place in her Bible when she wants to tag a passage she finds comfort from. 

This bookmark uses the Don't Worry set from Our Daily Bread Designs released on August 1 and the Spellbinders Labels ten die.  I created a rose out of ribbon and attached some ribbon.  I added the charm and stitching with silver thread.

Stamps: Don't Worry set from Our Daily Bread Designs
Accesories: Lavender paper, copics, ribbon, silver metallic thread, heart charm,
Spellbinders Labels ten die
