ODBD Bread Basket

Tuesday, September 8, 2015
Hello, Friends!!  I hope all is well and you all enjoyed a wonderful Labor Day weekend (for those in the USA).  It was nice to have my hubby home as he has been working so much lately and just have time together as a family!!

Today I would like to share a creation I made for this week's Shining the Light color challenge at ODBD!!

Our Daily Bread Designs, designed by Chris Olsen, Deep Waters, Faithful Fish die, Ovals die, Stitched Ovals die, Beautiful Borders Die

ODBD Stamps Used: Deep Waters

Your lovingkindness, O LORD, extends to the heavens, Your faithfulness reaches to the skies. 
Psalm 36:5

Here are the colors for the challenge:

I had so much fun coloring up the ocean image!!  The colors were perfect and I used each and every one of them!!  As I colored the photo, I thought of the units I used to teach to my second graders on the Ocean and about all the vacations I had with family camping on Assateague Island!!

For more inspiration for the challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
 Julie, Diana, Paula, and Robin.

We would love to see your creations for the challenge!! You can see more details here.  You have until September 13 at 8 pm EST to join us.

Thanks so much for stopping by and for your comments!!!  I so appreciate the encouragement!!
Have a blessed day!!

Wow! Love the coloring of this fun image and use of the Faithful Fish Pattern background :-) We love the Assateague Island area as well- wonderful to know that we both have visited that area! So thrilled to be designing along with you, my friend- hugs and God Bless!

Diana Nguyen said...

Love the background and your underwater scene! We went to Assateague Island last year - great memories and we even saw some wild horses from a distance though. Loved that you used all the colors!

Chris, you are so smart! The Faithful fish bg is perfect for these fish! duh! I can't believe we didn't all think of that but it is a good thing we didn't!!! I love your gorgeous colors too and the other thing you did that is so smart is to use the border die you used, it looks just like some shells with that other black border on top! Your card is beautiful and I would love to hear about your vacations on an island, wow, that sounds fantastic! Love the double colored bg panel and the black accents as well! Just simply beautiful!
Thank you for the encouragement to share as well, I feel like this is an opportunity that God has given me and I want to be faithful. I worry about it sometimes but hopefully just the right person will "stumble" across it!

Chris, what a gorgeous card and so striking with the black as your matting! The underwater scene is beautifully colored, and I love the borders and the background. And the best part is this precious sentiment that is so true. God gives us faith as deep as the oceans. Beautifully done, as always, my sweet friend! Hugs!
