Hello Friends!! I can't believe how fast time flies and that fall is upon us!!  I love the fall leaves and all the colors, but I am so going to miss my flowers, especially my daylilies!!  I love seeing all the different colors and varieties.  Each day is a new surprise!!  Anyone who knows anything about daylilies knows that blue daylilies is what every hybridizer hopes to achieve.  So today, I had fun coloring and creating my own blue daylily with the ODBD Beauty stamp set.  The actual stamp used is supposed to be a stargazer lily but the fun of stamping is that you can create and imagine anything you would like your image to be!!!

Our Daily Bread Designs, created by Chris Olsen, Beauty, Leafy Border dies, Boho Background die, Mini tag sentiments, Mini Tag dies, Ovals dies, Stitched Ovals dies, Doily die, Star Flourished Pattern Dies, Vintage Flourish Pattern Dies

ODBD Stamps Used: BeautyMini Tag Sentiments

The background is created with the dry embossing resist technique. I had fun using almost amethyst throughout!!  The bottom curvy border is created using the Leafy Edged Border die. The bottom corner is created using the Vintage Flourish Pattern die.  The silver border is embossed with the Star Flourished Pattern die.

Luke 12:27
Consider the lilies, how they grow, they neither toil nor spin, but I tell you, not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these.  28 But if God so clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, how much more will He Clothe you?  You men of little faith!

God cares more for you than the birds of the air, the flowers in the is not amazing how He cares for them.  We need not worry about tomorrow...God is there.  Each day has enough worries of its own.

This is the sketch used from the ODBD Shining the Light challenge:
