Happy Tuesday all!! I hope everyone has been having a good beginning to the week and that the winter weather is subsiding.  Thankfully it is warmer here and we are having rain and not snow. 

 I however, have been feeling quite a bit under the weather with a migraine and stomach issues as a result.  Computer time and crafting just intensify my pain so I have done little of either.

Today I want to pop in quickly to share this week's Shining the Light challenge:  Use the letter's in LOVE to create your card or project.

For my creation I used the Heart and Soul stamp set and the Elegant Ovals die from Our Daily Bread Designs paired with the Spellbinders Scalloped Ovals and Timeless Rectangles. The embossing folder is Tim Holtz Crackle.

The recipe I used is l-layers, o-vals, v-verse, e-embossing

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 February 9  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 and for your comments!! I truly appreciate them.
