Happy Saturday Everyone!!! I hope you all have had a great beginning to your weekend!!

Today I would like to share my creation for Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge. This week the challenge team is challenging you to create a Mother's Day Card or gift. This challenge will last two weeks since next Saturday will be an Our Daily Bread Designs New Release Blog hop!!

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize, a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Thursday, May 6 here. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments on your creations, we would love to see them if you have them. Should you join this challenge and upload your creation to SC please use the keyword OBDSLC11.

Now on to my creation:

For my creation I used the Mom stamps and Vine Borders from Our Daily Bread Designs. The dp is Indian Summer from Basic Grey. I used last week's Mojo Monday sketch.
