Happy Monday to you all!!! I hope you all had a great weekend!! I know I did! I had guests over the weekend. I was spoiled rotten. My parents came for a visit to celebrate my birthday early with me. They brought me lots of goodies including 2 bushels of apples to make applesauce and apple pie fillings with (I am going to be real busy!!!). They took me out for dinner.....

Over the weekend, I received my new sets for Our Daily Bread Designs so as soon as my guest left, I just had to get them inked up!!!! When I saw that Nancy Ruth was the featured stamper at SC, I just had to do this week's featured stamper challenge. Congrats Nancy Ruth on being this week's Featured Stamper!!! Your gallery is incredible and I have always admired your designs.

I cased this card . I changed the stamps, sentiment and added one extra panel to her layout but kept the basic layout (with the extra panel, this card meets Mercy's MTSC40 . I wanted to do up my card in pink like Nancy Ruth's but I just couldn't get it to look right with my cat tails and dragonfly so I had to change the color.

This card also incorporated Judy's LSC239- S.O.S.

S= Sponging
O= silver bauble shaped like and o and Our Daily Bread Designs
S= Sympathy or silver

I used two of my new sets from Our Daily Bread Designs that will be new release in October:
Praying for you and With Heartfelt Sympathy which met the Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge perfectly!! Their challenge was to create a Thinking of You or Praying for you card.

This picture for some reason turned out darker than on SC or in my files. If you click on the photo you will see the sewing and glitter much better!

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs Praying for You and With Heartfelt Sympathy
Paper: BG Marakech, Baja Breeze and white
Accessories: Silver Baubles, corner punch, prisma color pencils and gamsol, sponge, glitter for dragonfly, sewing machine, White ribbon, Swiss dots and swirls embossing folder

This week is going to be a very busy week for me. I am still gathering goodies for my birthday blog candy on Wednesday. I have lots of goodies to share!!!

Since it is nice and early, it is a great time to go blog hopping. I have missed you all!! Thanks so much for stopping by and for all your comments.
