This is my 3rd week as a guest design team member at Our Daily Bread Designs,
This week's challenge is Sun/ Clouds (116).
To make the challenge even more fun, they will be giving out a prize, a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Sunday July 22nd at 8 p.m. EST. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday.
While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments on your creations, we would love to see them if you have them. As a way of recognizing those who do use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing three or more of our participants for the Shining the Light Award . In order to qualify for this award or join the challenge, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by Sunday, July 22nd at 8 p.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC116. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.
I like making step cards - when I started playing with this image and sentiment from The Mighty Sea I wasn't sure what I was going to do but the colors and layout just seemed to come together. The little shells are a $1.00 stamp I found at JoAnn's. (Hmmm, are you sensing a theme here with my $1.00 or less purchases - maybe I should change my blog name to the 'Frugal Stamper" LOL!! ) After stamping and coloring them with my Copic markers, I cut them out and arranged them around the card
I promise next week to leave the beach behind as this is the second time I have used a beach scene.....can you tell its summer..... I find the ocean a peaceful and wonderful place to visit - whenever I stand at the edge of the beach with the water lapping up on the shore, tickling my toes, I truly feel the magnificence of God and all that He has created.

Sistah Kush! Your ODBD work is amazing. Love this gorgeous scene and your beautiful gems. And even more, I loved reading about the peace you find at the beach. The ocean is also "sanctuary" for us. Hugs...
