ODBD Bread Basket

Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Hello Friends!!  I hope everyone is safe in light of the storm.  I am prewriting this post...wondering if by the time this post goes live whether we have electric or internet service.  I pray for all those in the path of the hurricane or tropical storms.

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

This week's challenge is: Make it Masculine!!  Now anyone who knows me knows that this is a real challenge for me.  

For my creation I used a sneak peek of "The Babe" from Our Daily Bread Designs to be released on Thursday, November 1.

Card Recipe
ODBD stamps used: Our Daily Bread Designs sneak peek- The Babe to be released November 1st
Dies: Spellbinders classic circles, Fancy Labels 2
Paper: Bitter Chocolate, Script Cork and Burlap from Recollections
Accessories: brown stitched ribbon, hemp

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters:

To see all the creations in one place or join the challenge, click here.  You have until November 4th to join us.    You do not have to use an ODBD stamp to join in, but we would love to see them if you have them.  Plus....your card will only be featured in the top 3 if you use ODBD stamps.  Anyone, however, has a chance to win the $15 certificate toward ODBD stamps.
We would love to see your creations.

I hope this creation, has somehow inspired you.

Thanks for stopping by!! I treasure all my viewers/blogging friends and their comments.

Have a blessed Day!!!
