Happy Saturday Everyone!! I hope you all are having a great start to your weekend. It is so exciting to have my husband home for three days and to actually have the opportunity to get some things done this weekend in the yard. I can't wait to get started. The results are so worth it. is Saturday and time for another Shining the Light Challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs.

This week the challenge team is you to use stars and/or stripes on your creation. Since Memorial Day is coming up, we thought this may be fun. Please note that your card or project can be patriotic but it does no
t have to be.

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, June 3. 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.

For my creation, I had so much fun inking up the new Our Daily Bread Designs sneak peak From Me To You. I just love Fuscia flowers and this set has them!!
For my card I used the Midnight Madness Sketch. I had completed this card on Tuesday when the sketch was posted on the Midnight Madness blog. It was so hard to wait until today to share it. After being on the MMDT for a year, I guess I too am a creature of habit. I must say it is fun being a sketch player though as much as I miss the team.
Here I go babbling again...sorry...I used some newer dp carried at the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog from the Memory Box Frond collection. For my stripes I used American Crafts ribbon.

I love fuscia too, these look so real. I adore the beautiful green and big white ribbons. Such an elegant card, as always....question, what do you do with all of your cards? Do you sell them? I have over 200 and have got to slow down.....I'm running out of space for them in my scrap room.
