ODBD Bread Basket

Tuesday, February 10, 2015
Hello Friends!!  I hope this post finds you all well!!  It has been so beautiful and so much like spring here.  What a tease!!  I sure wish it would stay!!

My hubby and I have been working on setting up our store on Etsy- ChiselinknMore.  I have used Ebay in the past, but thought I would give Esty a try.  

Today I would like to share a gift set I made.  The card uses ODBD stamps and dies.  The bracelet assistant is made by Scott, my husband.  It is 24K gold and has turned Crushed Pink Acrylic for the handle.  I made a card to match using the ODBD Shining the Light challenge sketch!!  I had fun using the telescoping technique for my focal image.  I colored the Daisy image three times with copics and then cut each layer with the ODBD Elegant ovals (first 2 layers) and the Large Spellbinders ovals.
It is hard to see the layers in this photo.

This set is available for sale!!!

Here is a close up of the bracelet catcher!!  The bracelet assistant and card are now on sale in the Etsy store for $17.99 plus shipping, here.  The profits made on the sales are going toward a mission trip for my daughters this summer.

Life is Short – Cherish it, and; Be Thankful, Joyful  and Prayerful

Sometimes it feels like life is too short. May we never take life for granted, but always be thankful, joyful and prayerful, growing in wisdom every day. 

Psalm 90:12 Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom.

Psalm 103:2, Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me.

Psalm 90:12 So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Each and every day is a gift.  Let us live life to the fullest!!

Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you enjoy my creation!! For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters: Paula BigelowDiana NyugenRobin ClendenningGracie Chavez, and Elizabeth Whisson.

Thanks to all who stop by and comment.  It is so appreciated!!

Oh, Chris, what a beautiful gift set! The colors are lovely, and how neat that it's a gift set made by you and Scott! Stunning card design with the telescoping image, and what a joy to know the proceeds are going toward the girls' mission trip! Praying you raise the support and know that God will bless them and those whom they minister to! Hugs!
