Our Daily Bread designs challenge this week is Easter.  With my past winnings I got this stamp set.  If you would Like to do the challenge this week head over to ODBD HERE .

Our Daily Bread designs-- The Shepherd stamp set for sentiment and image.  Image has been stamped twice, one of the designers stamped them more than once and I thought that was such a great idea, I colored them with Copics and Dick Blick art markers.  The one on the left I  colored with a bit more Grey so that they looked a little different.

Cosmo Cricket paper
Spellbinders-- Labels eight dies ( the image is behind the frame)
Memory box-- Wrought Iron Fence die (cut twice and glued together)
Fiskars -- Cloud punches, chalking on the clouds and for the sky
Sizzix-- Rounded Tags die(sentiment tag)  Branch w/leaf die
BasicGrey-- Brad
Michaels $ spot flower punch
Bead Paint in Silver for the flower centers

We have sunshine again and it is melting all that snow/sleet mixture we had.  I went out to shovel it and that just got my sciatica nerve all burning again, Oh well, I had to do it my husband caught the flu that I had a couple weeks ago.

I have some wonderful news to share, my daughter applied for and has received a full paid funding to go to Duke University.  So her and her husband (who also got in) will be moving to North Carolina this spring or summer.  They are both going for a Master of Divinity.  God has blessed them with their dream of going to this university for their degree and we are excited that they will be a whole days drive closer to us!!!

Hope you enjoy a wonderful weekend!!
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by, I appreciate your comments,
