ODBD Bread Basket

Tuesday, March 18, 2014
Hello Friends!!

Yesterday marked the 6th Anniversary of ODBD being in business.  In celebration the Shining the Light Challenge Team at Our Daily Bread Designs is having challenges each week of March related to the Anniversary.  

This week's challenge is to use 6 of something on your creation.  It can be six words, six stamps, 6 layers, six pearls, six flowers and etc. 

I made two cards for today's challenge.  

Yesterday Our Daily Bread Designs celebrated their 6th year Anniversary and had a new release of many Beautiful quotes, scripture and sentiments!!  For my first creation I just had to use one of my fave quotes which I feel is a great reminder.  It has 6 words....

Resting and letting have God have total control is very difficult.  I sometimes feel like I should help him along...but that is not faith...

Card Recipe
ODBD Stamps Used: Quote Collection 4
Embossing folder- Darice Flourished Leaves
Paper: My Mind's Eye

Here is my creation using six stamps and dies from Our Daily Bread Designs.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Sweeter Than Honey, Zinnia
Dies:ODBD Beautiful Borders, ODBD Elegant Ovals, ODBD Custom Zinnia and Leaves dies, Ornate Borders and flowers dies
Paper: Blooming Garden Collection
Embossing Folder: Darice Honeycomb

What a powerful verse.  While David is talking about God's sweet words, all words have the ability to encourage or tear down.  Many have heard the old adage "Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me."  How untrue!!  Words do and can kill.  In the same way that hurtful words can harm, kind words encourage.

Can you encourage someone to day with a kind word?

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

Such beautiful cards Chris! Love the first one - so elegant and your bows are so beautiful! Second card is just as fantastic - love the black, brown and white together :-)

Oh, Chris, both of these cards are gorgeous! I love the elegance of the first one...the stitching embossing, beautiful border and pearls...and one of your "signature" bows! Totally love it, and I love the truly wonderful quote...such a good reminder to rest in what God is doing in our lives.

And your second card is wonderful with all the great ODBD items and is just too sweet! And I love this Scripture verse, because God's Word is so sweet and precious...His promises are true!!

Thanks for sharing your beautiful work and your heart for the Lord through these wonderful cards. You are a treasure, sweet friend!!
