ODBD Bread Basket

Hello Friends!! It is hard to believe that yesterday was the first day of fall!! Where does the time go!!!  It is beginning to feel like it to with cooler nights and not so hot temperatures during the day...very comfortable.

Today I am popping in to share this week's Shining the light challenge at our Daily Bread Designs.  This week's challenge is Anything Goes with Our Daily Bread Designs stamps or dies.  You must use something from Our Daily Bread Designs to play along.

Here is my creation using ODBD Holly Wreath . The sentiment is framed in Fancy Tags 2 from Spellbinders. The wreath was embossed in gold and cut out. I added some pearls and gold cording for some texture, dimension and elegance. The corners are from Our Daily Bread Designs Custom Fancy Ornament Die set. I just love this die set!!

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters:

To see all the creations in one place or join the challenge, click here.  You have until September 29th  to join us.   For this challenge you may use any stamps but it you have any Our Daily Bread Designs stamps we would love to see you use them. If you participate, you have a  chance to win the $15 certificate toward ODBD stamps or to be Spotlighted for the Shining the Light Award (The Shining the Light Award is only for those who use ODBD stamps). We would love to see your creations.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you were inspired in some way by my creation.  Have a blessed day!!!

Another stunning creation Chris! I love how you framed the top with the corner dies! The gold wreath makes such a statement! And truly you inspire me with your sewing! One day I hope to start practicing with my machine!

Well, I commented but for some reason it didn't take! I wanted to say how inspired I am by the sewing on your cards! One day I hope to have time to practice with my machine! I love the way you framed the wreath with the corner dies at the top too!
