A time for everything. . .

To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.
 Ecclesiastes 3:1


ODBD Shining the Light Challenge #169

This week (and all this month) the Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge Team challenges YOU to a make a project using a single layer. This is one layer as in one piece of cardstock or one layer on a base (this includes diecuts).
 To make the challenge even more rewarding, 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. 8 at 8 p.m. EST. 

Complete details are available on the ODBD blog.
