Hello friends!!

I hope this post finds you all well.  Today I am popping in to share this week's Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs using a sneak peek of the new release.

This week's challenge is to create a shaped card.  For my creation I made a circular shaped card as well as an easel with the a sneak peek from Our Daily Bread Designs to be released on Saturday, March 1: Sweeter Than Honey, Bee Happy, Honeycomb Background, Zinnia and Leaves dies as well as the new designer paper: Blooming Garden.

The border along the bottom circular panel is the ODBD Beautiful Borders.

I love the new grand stately circles from ODBD that I just got so I had to use them.  The paper is from ODBD's new Blooming Garden collection to be released on Saturday.

Card Recipe:

ODBD Stamps Used: Bee Happy, Sweeter than honey, Honeycomb background (sneak peeks)
ODBD Dies Used: Zinnia and Leaves (sneak peek), Beautiful Borders
Paper: ODBD Blooming Garden (Sneak peek)
Spellbinders Dies: Grand Circles, Grand Stately circles, ovals

I just love these new sets...I thought I would make a card for my honey.  Life would not be the same with out Him.  I am so blessed to have Scott!!

The Word of God contains a treasure of Bible verses about love whether it be romantic love, brotherly love (friendship, or divine love.
There is no greater blessing than to be loved not only by our heavenly father but others as well.

1 Corinthians 13:1-3
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.

1 Corinthians 13:4–8a
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails ...

Is there someone you can show love to today?  My goal is to do an act of kindness for at least one person today.
