ODBD Bread Basket

Saturday, June 16, 2012
Happy Saturday all!! I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful weekend.  I made the long trek out to visit my parents in NY, my first time driving myself and the girls on a 10 hour trip.  Amazingly, I did well..God answered my prayers!!  We have been having a great time visiting with family.  Last night was my Dad's retirement party.  He now starts a new chapter in his life, exciting yet scary all wrapped in one.  I pray God will be with him and guide his footsteps through this transition.

Today I would like to pop in and share today challenge at the Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light challenge.  This week's challenge is simple yet fun.


This week's challenge: 
Since it is officially summer in the USA this week, let's see your summer themed creations. They can include gardening, boats, and etc..... anything related to a summer activity.

    Chris, this little basket is so cute and you colored it perfectly to pop off the papers you used! I hadn't thought of a monochromatic card and then a stamped image that pops -- it seems obvious now that I see it of course, but I'm grateful to you for sharing this idea!
