It's EASTER at ODBD's Shining The Light Challenge #7 & Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot's Be inspired #76

Hello & Happy Saturday! IT'S TIME FOR some fun EASTER PROJECTS......

This week at Our Daily Bread Designs, The Challenge Team is challenging you to create an Easter Card or project for Shining the Light Challenge #7.
A $15 gift certificate will be given away to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store to one entrant who links their ODBD Easter project by next Thursday, April 1 at 8 p.m. to Mr. Linky found on the ODBD Blog HERE. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. While it's not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images/sentiments on your creations, we'd love to see them if you have them. So come join us. If you upload your creations to SCS and, or, other online galleries, please use this CODE: ODBDSLC7 so that we may find your work easier. :)
