Happy Saturday Everyone!!  I hope you are all having a great weekend.  This weekend I am blessed to have my parents here for the weekend. Fun...and treasured!

Anywho...I am popping in for this week's Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs.

This week's Challenge:
Do you sometimes get in a slump and just create cards with your stamps...I know I do. This week we want you to create anything but a card. It need not be can be a bookmark, tag, etc. I hope this helps you think outside of the box.

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,
November 18. 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.As a way of recognizing those who do use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing 1 to 2 creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award. In order to qualify for this award, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by November 18 at 8 p.m. EST.If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC37. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

For my sleigh I used the
Poinsettia Background, Poinsettia tag, Mistletoe Tag sets
from Our Daily Bread Designs.  The sleigh itself was created using the winter sleigh template from Perfect Presentations. I embossed the poinsettia background in silver on the blue cardstock before assembling.  The treats on the inside are almonds tarts.  To make the blades, I embossed white paper in silver to give it sparkle and the silver color.
