ODBD's 2nd Year Anniversary Celebration Days Continue!!!!

We're having a blast celebrating with you! This is Day 3, Challenge 3.

Traditional gifts for special milestones in a marriage like the 25th and 50th Anniversaries are SILVER & GOLD. So, for this challenge, we are to incorporate silver and, or, gold into our projects.

Please note that these must BE NEW creations, (no back links please) and linked to Mr Linky posted on the ODBD blog by 8pm EST tonight! The winner will be chosen by random, will receive a $25.00 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store & will be announced on the ODBD Blog tomorrow when we issue the next day's challenge! *If uploading to SCS or other on line gallery, please use this challenge's key word ODBD2AC3.

Please be sure to visit all blogs for Designers listed & linked below. Remember to leave a comment on each because there is hidden BLOGCANDY on some of the blogs again! You will not know where it is, but if your name is chosen and you have left a little love for the designer... you might just win it!!! :)

Blogcandy winners will be announced by the individual blog owners the following day. There will be a final announcement on March 19th on the ODBD Blog recapping ALL the Anniversary challenges, the blog candy, and the winners! So be sure to check back then!!!

Dear America~

I teared up when I saw your card. I wasn't expecting to see this glorious cross and the gold. This paper, looks just like fabric. Lush fabric. I love the details you gave the cross.

I actually need to stop typing. Because I can't find the right words for this breath-taking piece.

He IS Able,
And, what He did on the Cross is
what it's about! Amen!!

His,
Traci S.
