Thursday, August 25, 2011
Happy Thursday Everyone!!  Today is the beginning of many days of rain...the hurricane is on it's way.  Oh well...more time to craft and work around the house...

It is time for ODBD Stamping In Time Challenge(SNTODBD42) over at Our Daily Bread Designs! The assignment is to use Our Daily Bread Design stamps.  The challenge this rotation is lace! Lace can be a lacy background, die cut, punch, lacy paper, lacey stamp, or real lace.  Remember, the more you play the more you increase your chance to win! We look forward to seeing what you create using ODBD stamps!  

Here is my take on the challenge with a lacy doily and lace...

Card Recipe
The ODBD Stamps I Used: Pincushion Tag Set and Sew Special
Paper: SEI, White, Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette

Now, it is your turn to play for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate toward stamps at ODBD! Here are the guidelines!

  • You must use ODBD Stamps! Other stamps allowed, but ODBD images need to be the focus!
  • Use keyword codes SNTODBD42 and ODBD when linking to SCS or public gallery.
