This week, the Our Daily Bread Design's Challenge Team challenges you to use stitching on your project!! And. . .the great news is that because of the Labor Day holiday coming up soon, this will be a two week challenge!
To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! And, if you use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing one to two creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award. All submissions must be added to Mr. Linky by Sunday, Sept. 9 at 8 p.m. EST. Complete details are available on the ODBD blog.
Please take a bit of time to visit  my fellow challenge team members blogs, you'll be blessed!

  10. This is such a precious card, Jan-Marie. I love the sweet elements you've used together. It is beyond lovely! I just LOVE those little roses from Michaels. I bought what I thought was a life-time supply of them from Michaels when they clearanced them out, and I'm getting so low on them that I hoard what I have left. They are SO sweet, and they accent this card SO beautifully. What a blessing you are to me! I'm so grateful that you share your gorgeous creations with us at Word Art Wednesday. It touches my heart to read your posts and see your art. May God bless you, my friend.
