Hello all!!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend...for many it is a holiday weekend. Enjoy!!  We are going back to New York to spend time with the family.  Can't wait.  We leave today (Friday).  Woohoo!!

Today I am popping it to share this week's Shining the Light Challenge this week at Our Daily Bread Designs.

This week's challenge: 
Use the colors pink, black and/or grey and white/vanilla.
This week will be a two week challenge.

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, June 8th at 8 a.m. EST. 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. As a way of recognizing those who do use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing three or more of our participants  for the  Shining the Light Award . In order to qualify for this award or join the challenge, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by Friday, June 8th at 8 a.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC110. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

Here is my take on the challenge:

For my creation I made a more simplistic card using the My Mind's Eye Blush paper for my design.  The label with the sentiment is actually part of the paper that I cut out and adhered with dimensionals.  I just love the dark pink, light pink, gray and white together.  The sentiment is a sneak peak from Our Daily Bread Designs to be released on June 1.  It is called Thank You Sentiments.  I just love this new set!!  I did do some fancy stitching with my new machine but you can see it better close up (click on the photo) or in person.

ODBD stamps used: (Sneak Peek) Thank You Sentiments
("To thoughtful you...from thankful me")
Paper: My Mind's Eye- Blush, Basic Grey cardstock (SU), white
Accessories: Tear Drop lace, rose pink ribbon, Martha Stewart Daisy Border Punch, pearls

This weekend is a Special time in the USA to remember and honor the men and women who died while serving our country. They paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom!!  We should pray for our servicemen and women daily!

Besides our US military, there is somebody else who died for us so that we may have Eternal Life and that is Jesus Christ! Jesus said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me" - John 14:6. Jesus explains to us the reason for shedding His blood and His death on the cross was so that our sins may be forgiven and we can spend eternity in heaven! Let's remember the ultimate sacrifice He made just for us.  His death enables us to receive real Freedom for eternity!!!
