Welcome to our first ODBD Challenge Team Challenge! We are super excited for these weekly challenges & hope you will be joining us regularly !!!

Valentine's Day is right around the corner & we are challenging you to use HEARTS on your creations. The hearts can be on your designer paper, in your image, on your embellishments (ribbons, pearls, gems, charms and etc.) on cuts... on anything.

Entries for the prize must be submitted by Thursday, February 11. Winner will be chosen & announced next Saturday. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC1. When uploading to your blogs, please link back to the challenge. You can also find this challenge posted at SCS HERE.

*note* You are NOT required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images/verses on your creations, BUT, we sure would love to see them if you have them. :)

1-2 creations will be chosen to spotlight with a "Shine the Light Award". To qualify for this award, however, you must use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps on your creation. These creations also must be submitted by Thursday, February 11 and linked with Mr. Linky on the ODBD Blog. Winners will be posted/announced on February 13.
