Happy Saturday Everyone!! I hope you are all enjoying the weekend!!  It is hot and humid here!!  Today we plan to stay indoors and take wall hangings down, patch the nail holes and paint til we drop. LOL!  I hope we get a lot accomplished before I leave to go to my parents this week.  I have until Tuesday...since we don't work on Sunday and go to church etc., that leaves today and Monday.  My hubby will be home but with work and all, he will be so busy.  Next week we have a Realtor Open House... it is time for another Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs!!

 This weeks challenge:
Create a card or project using the sketch with a twist. The twist is you can use any center panel shape you would like in the center.

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, August 5 at 8 a.m. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. If you are not using ODBD stamps, please do not enter more than once. Additional entries without using ODBD stamps will not be commented on or will they qualify for prizes.

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 August 5 at 8 a.m. EST.If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC70. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

Now on to my take on the challenge:
For my creation I used a sneak peek of Weave in Faith to be released on Monday August 1 at Our Daily Bread Designs!!  I just love these sewing and biblical based stamps!!!  The dp I used on my Creation is Kaiser Craft Lilac Avenue.  The sentiment is framed with the Spellbinders Labels 14 die.  The flowers are from ZVA Creative.

Chris, as usual a beautiful card...always enjoy checking to see your many lovely creations. I will lift you up in prayer as you work on your home..this is my first chance to blog after 10 days of packing, moving, and now looking forward to LOTS more unpacking. Moving is stressful, no matter what He is there to work it all for good, and with patience (not my strong suit) we eventually understand His plans are so much better than ours.

Kirsty said...

Beautiful! I love the quilt look and you have chosen such lovely papers in which to do it! The bow is beautiful too. Thanks for joining us at Crazy Challenge - good luck!

Michelle said...

Beautiful card Chris, I would not have the patience to cut out all those squares & stitch them all, lol!

I think I missed why you are moving-- hope you sell your house quickly. Yes it's a lot of work, which is why they will have to bury me in this house, lol
