Good Morning!!! Happy Thursday!! Thank you so much to everyone for their birthday wishes yesterday. I had a wonderful day full of fun and surprises. I began my day with a phone call from my Mom followed by my Dear Friend Kathy Jones from Australia!! What a treat!! I absolutely had no time for crafting since I spent most of my day on the phone with friends and family who called me to wish me a Happy Birthday.

For those of you visited my FBW/ II treat bag post yesterday, you know that I had offered one lucky person some of those awesome Lindt chocolate treats in a small gift bag that I would create. The winner of the chocolate is LELIA comment #11. Congrats Lelia!! Please email me your snail mail address (my email is so I can send them out to you.

Today is the Divine Diva Challenge. Lori emailed the design team this photo.

I was inspired by the trees and colors in this photo and decided to make a fall treat!! I used the SU Lovely as a Tree stampset and the new Basic Grey Indian Summer Paper. The image is colored and then I embossed the entire image panel 4 times heavily and applied the cracked glass technique.

I hope you are inspired by my creation. If you decide to create a card or project with this picture for this challenge, please leave a direct link here. If you upload your creation to SC, please use the keyword DDIC. For more inspiration, please visit my dt sisters.
Thanks for stopping by for my first post of the day. In an hour, I will be returning with a second post for the Our Daily Bread Designs New Release Blog Hop. You won't want to miss it since there will be prizes and lots of inspiration from the team along the way!!!
