Happy Tuesday all!! I hope you are all having a fantastic week!! Right now I am sitting in a coffee ship writing this post since we lost power, the internet, and phone this weekend. It has been three days now and oh how I miss it!!  It always amazes how the conveniences we take so for granted can shake up our lives when it is not there.  I am so thankful for the modern conveniences.

Since I have very limited time, I better get right to it.

Today I would like to share a card for the Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light challenge.   Since spring is on it's way...I hope.  This week's challenge is Spring has Sprung with ODBD Stamps.  Unlike most challenges, this is a challenge using Our Daily Bread Designs stamps.

With Easter just around the corner, I just had to make a Spring/Easter card!!  For my card I used one of the new verses released for the 5th year Anniversary at ODBD- Scripture Collection 10.  What a perfect Easter verse!!!  To add more of a Spring feel, I used green and butterflies from the Faith stamp set and Pussy Willow's from Happy Spring.  The dies used include Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles, Floral Ovals, Basic Lattice and Classic Ovals.
