Our Daily Bread Challenge....

This week's challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs- Shining the Light Challenge:

Since it is February and we are acknowledging national hero’s (President’s day) or people who are special to us (Valentine’s Day) in the U.S. , the challenge team is challenging you to acknowledge and case a crafter you admire or a creation you admire changing just two elements to make it our own.

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize, a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Thursday, February 25. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments on your creations, we would love to see them if you have them.

So with that said.....I decided to use my brand new stamp set "Get Well" which I was so excited to buy with my gift certificate I won on their blog! Woo Hoo I have become a fan of Sabrina over at SJButterflyDreams Blog. She is so talented and I really do love all her work. I met her through her candy blog and have continued to become friends. She did a card here that I just loved and was the reason I chose the stamp set I did. I used paper from the Basic Grey paper pad "Eva", Prima flowers (that came in a cute little bra - lol), ODBB Get Well stamp set, I stamped it twice, the first time I embossed it in green, the second I embossed in gold and cut out the butterflies to overlay. I also used brown satin ribbon I found at Walmart and some heart brads from my stash, along with some pink seed beads for texture and sparkle. The two elements I changed were the shape of the background sentiment and the butterfly technique. It doesn't come close to doing Sabrina's justice but she's such an inspiration to me. The other card I loved was done with the Friendship stamp which is next on my wish list. She showcased it here beautifully but I didn't have the tools to duplicate this one. Take a peek anyway! You won't be sorry! Thanks for stopping by!

Stop by tomorrow morning for a quickie Cricut card post. I wanna start at least once a week doing that. Thanks for all your loving comments they mean the world to me!

Peace and Love - Jen
