You are a blessing. . .

Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. 1 Corinthians 15:58

Welcome to the first Our Daily Bread Designs Forum Featured Artist Challenge, or what we’ve nicknamed the CASE challenge!

What is the CASE Challenge? The first Tuesday of every month, we pick a different member to honor by crafting cards, scrapbook items, altered art and such, influenced by items in her gallery. We share a bit about our featured artist, provide a sample. . .and then open it up to you to join in by "Copying And Sharing Everything" CASE! Because we're motivated and influenced by what we see in the gallery and not just copying something, there's always something for everyone!

Our featured artist for December is someone everyone knows and loves. She is a gifted designer and paper crafter, with an incredible eye for detail and precision. Everything that comes from her hands is a work of art, and a blessing to behold. And if that weren’t enough, she writes the most instructive and thorough tutorials and has now embarked into the world of video tutorials (well, at least her hands and her sweet voice have as she is as camera shy as glimmer mist!) She also is a member of the Our Daily Bread Designs Design Team and hovers over the gallery to spot the next “Customer Card of the Day.”

What you may not know is that our dear Angella Crockett has also been a part of this forum almost since its inception and has provided tremendous support and guidance through the transition.  She has been an encourager, a mentor, a friend and a sweet, gracious sister in Christ to all who enter.  We are thankful to the Lord for His gift of Angella and her sweet, gentle, humble and encouraging heart!

Please join with us in honoring Angella with a card or project of your choice inspired by her lovely gallery: Angella’s ODBD Gallery. Be sure not to copy exactly: make it your own!

If you’re using Our Daily Bread Designs Stamps, please upload to the ODBD Gallery. If you aren't yet registered, sign up only takes a couple of minutes. If you do not use ODBD stamps, then just leave a link in your comment to your blog or another publicly viewable online gallery. Better yet, take a few minutes to sign-up and become a member of the ODBD Forum. When uploading your card or project to the ODBD gallery, or posting anywhere else online (your blog or another public gallery) please use the keyword ODBDFA01 (no spaces or commas).

And don't forget there are challenges every Saturday, every other Thursday plus a monthly scrapbook challenge on the ODBD blog!

My CASE is based on a “clean and simple” card of Angella’s entitled “Clean and Simple Butterfly Birthday. “ I chose this card because even Angella’s CAS cards are exquisite and I also wanted something that conveyed her sweet and gentle nature.  I also thought the sentiment was perfect!
