Stand firm

Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; have courage; be strong. 1 Corinthians 16:13

ODBD Shining the Light Challenge #123

This week, the our Daily Bread Designs Challenge Team challenges you to "stamp your own background."

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. 23, 2012 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!
