Hello Friends!!  Today is the last day of January! I can't believe we are already through the first month in the new year!  Wow! Time flies!

I don't often share masculine cards since I don't feel it is my strength but today I am going to share a card I created using the Living Water stamp set.  This image is so fun to color!! It has a lot of sparkle since glitter was added to the snow and water.


Card Recipe:
Stamps: Living Water
Paper: Silver Metallic, black , White card stock (blue panel is white cardstock sponged)

As I look at the world around us and the constant bickering and persecution that takes place, I am reminded that God does not promise us peace.  In fact he tells us wars and rumors or war or constant turmoil will continue through our lives until He comes back. As I watch the news each day I think to myself how much worse can this world become.  I have to remember where my strength comes from.  My strength comes from God alone.  I can not depend on government or people nor can you.  Remember today that you are not alone!




May you be blessed today!! I hope you have enjoyed my creation and are inspired in some way.  Thanks so much for stopping by and for your comments.  I will be back tomorrow with the new release at ODBD.  I hope you are able to join us!

blessings,

Hello Friends!  I hope you all enjoyed the weekend and had time to spend some time with family and/or friends.  It has been such a blessing to have time to regroup and spend time with Scott and the girls as well as attend church before restarting a new week.

Today I am popping in to share a sneak peek of the new Glorious Gable Box available to be purchased on Wednesday at Our Daily Bread Designs. The Tulip Heart die, Layering Hearts dies, and Let Love Grow stamp set will also be available Wednesday.  The Whimsical Wildflowers Paper Collection, Antique Labels and Border dies, Bitty Borders dies, and Love Script die are available now.


Here is the back of the same box.



I plan to use these Gable Boxes for Valentines Day.  They are so much fun to make and make such a wonderful treat box.

Last week we had another order for our Etsy store.  The customer contacted me to let me know that this was for her husband's birthday.  Since I always include a handmade card with each sale in our store, I created this card for the recipient.  



The background was created my stamping the tree for the Joys of the Season Stamp set and sponging clouds.  The happy Birthday sentiment is die cut using the Happy Birthday Script die.  The Mountain scene is from the Keep Climbing Stamp set and is framed with a die from Lavish Layers.  Again, the clouds were sponged.

May God bless you with a wonderful week!  Thanks so much for stopping by and for any comments!  I hope to post again tomorrow but if for some reason I do not, I will be sharing a new creation on Wednesday, February 1, for the Our Daily Bread Designs New Release.

blessings,

Hello Friends!!  I hope this post finds you all well.  As I write this post, it is in the throws of winter with real cold temperatures (below 0) and snow.  While I enjoy the seasons, this is a bit too cold for me.  The snow is very pretty and it is warm inside.

For those who are not experiencing winter or for those who are already looking for spring, this card is for you....flowers!!!

For my creation, I incorporated this month's Shining the Light Color Challenge and used the Seeds of Today stamp set, Whimsical Wildflower 6x6 Paper Collection, Plum Pizzazz 6x6 Paper Collection,  Thanks die, as well as the Pierced Rectangles dies, Rectangles, Ornate Ovals, and Ovals die.

Here is my creation:
Our Daily Bread Designs, Seeds of Today, Pierced Rectangles Die, Rectangles Dies, Thanks dies, Ornate Ovals dies, Ovals dies, Plum Pizzazz 6x6 Paper Collection, Whimsical Wildflower 6x6 Paper Collection, Designed by Chris Olsen
I just love this new designer paper.  The patterns are beautiful and the colors so bold and royal.  It really matches this stamp set!

Here is the colors for this month's ODBD Shining the Light challenge:


We hope you can join this challenge.  You have until February 5 at 8pm EST to add your creation and direct link to the linky on this post.

Hello Friends!! Today Our Daily Bread Designs has a special Pre-order for all those who are interested in starting to make their Valentine's cards or goodies or for those who may want to make a wedding or engagement card or treat box.  The bread basket (ODBD team) has lots of inspiration to share using this release and you won't want to miss it.

Today I am sharing a creation I created using the Pre-release items Glorious Gable Box, Tulip Hearts, Layered Hearts dies, Let Your Love Grow as well as the previously released: Antique Labels and Border dies, Love die, Bitty Borders dies, Whimsical Wildflower designer paper,  and Lavish Layers dies.

The Glorious Gable Box has insert dies to create windows.  I chose to make my insert be adhered to the front rather than having windows.  The die cut out the inside of the insert on white cardstock and then hand trimmed the outside so I could layer it.  The sentiments are from one of the items offered in the Pre-release- Let Your Love Grow.





The pre-release is being sold in bundles and are available today.  Just click here to see or purchase the bundles seen below.




For more inspiration for the prelease, please visit my amazingly talented dt sisters:

Grace, Dawn, Robin,  Lisa, Helen, Cathy, Julie, Lori, and Diana.

I hope you enjoyed today's post and are inspired in some way by my creation.  Thanks so much for all your views and comments.

Hello Friends!! We are now in 2017!  I still remember when we changed to the year 2000 and here we are now in 2017.  Where does the time go?!!!

Today I am popping in to share a creation I created for the color challenge at the ODBD Shining the Light challenge.  I created a basket using the Bountiful Basket die released on January as well as the Whimsical Wildflowers Paper CollectionLeaves and Branches diesSeeds of Today stamp set, Bitty Blossoms dies and the previously released Mini Tag dies.


This basket was fun to make and makes the perfect presentation for a small surprise for someone.  I put chocolate kisses in mine.  The sentiment is from the Seeds of Today stamp set and it is die cut using the Mini Tags dies.  The flowers are made with the Bitty Blossoms and Leaves and Branches dies sets.

The colors for the Shining the Light challenge are:
