Our Daily Bread Designs Bread Basket

Saturday, September 10, 2011
Happy Saturday All!!  It is hard to believe the week has flown by so quickly and that I have not posted since Monday.  I have been preoccupied with miserable weather and life in general at our house.  Prayerfully we have a weekend without rain since we have been saturated and flooded out!!  I thank God that our basement stayed dry despite the heavy rainfall we received and that Scott was able to go back to work again yesterday after the state of emergency was lifted in our area.  I am praying for so many that have been devastated by flooding houses, fires, and other natural disasters in our country and around the world.

Anywho....It is time for another Our Daily Bread Shining the Light challenge!!


This weeks challenge: Use lacing on your cards or projects.  This is not using lace but actually lacing ribbon, lace, string, or paper through something.


To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize, $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for thprize must be submitted by Friday, September 16 at 8 a.m. EST. 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. Inorder to qualify for this award, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by Friday, September 16 at 8 a.m. EST.If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC76. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

Here is my take on the challenge:

I used the Seeds sentiment for my flower pick in the bouquet.  The wheel barrow uses the Prima Botanical paper and the Barrow of Blooms template from My Time Made Easy.  I laced some thin ribbon from A.C. Moore through some lace.  The wheels are attached with gem brads.
