ODBD Bread Basket

Saturday, June 25, 2011
 Happy Saturday Everyone!! I hope you all are having a great weekend!!  I am sure we are as we are camping still and our family always enjoys it!  What more fun is there than enjoying the nature God has provided us.  Soon it will be time to get back to reality though as we go home.

Since it is Saturday, it is time for another Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs.

This weeks challenge:
Is to make anything  that uses Our Daily Bread Designs stamps!!  Is that easy peasy or what?!!

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, June 30. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. If you are not using ODBD stamps, please do not enter more than once. Additional entries without using ODBD stamps will not be commented on or will they qualify for prizes.

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.As a way of recognizing those who do use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing 1 to 2 creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award. In order to qualify for this award, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by June 30 at 8 p.m. EST.If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC66. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

Now on to my creation for this challenge:

A couple of weeks ago, before leaving on vacation, I saw this beautiful spring basket design created by Stacy Morgan.  I thought it would be fun to make for a Thank You gift for Nicki's piano teacher. Thanks for the tutorial Stacy.  I altered it slightly but I had so much fun making it!!  The flower is from the Serve the Lord stampset.  I colored it with copics (R20, R22, R24, YG94, YG97, YG06, E40, E41, E42).  I made some big cookies to go inside.  The basket measures 5 `/2 by 3 1/4 by 4 1/2 inches deep (without the handle).

 ODBD Stamps used: Serve the Lord
Die: Corchet Frame from Our Daily Bread Designs
