Our Daily Bread: Sneak Peek


Jeanne Streiff has issued a Limited Supplies Challenge on SCS to make a card based on the colors of a room in your home. Now, I normally don't participate in this challenge...well...simply because I'm not very good at *limiting* myself. I keep adding, and adding, and adding. I adore CAS (Clean and Simple) cards. Mostly because I so wish I could make cards like that. I don't have an eye for that though. My balance is always off. So, back to this challenge. We were also to limit our layers and embellishments. Believe me, 4 layers is limiting me...and 3 stars with twine...very limited. So, I hope I haven't overexteded myself in this one.

"The Lord is my Shepherd" sampler was made by Miss Fannie Turgeon in 1993. And this, among other samplers, is hanging in my guest bathroom. It's painted a deep red, and is decorated with rustic country samplers and outhouses. I know...an odd combo, but I felt they were both in the same era...kwim?

This is my first ever sneak peek!! Woo-Hoo! Kelley, from Our Daily Bread Designs, has some fabulous new images for you for that will be released May 1. The DT has already been busy making some GORGEOUS cards. I'm seriously in awe!! The links to their galleries are on the left. Be sure to check them out regularly. Everyone will be posting soon.

The papers were ink distressed with Scattered Straw and Vintage Photo (Ranger Distress Ink), and the bg was stamped with Stampin' UP!'s bg Sanded. The stars are Cuttlebug dies, and I punched the corners with a Marvy corner punch.

Hope you all had a wonderful week and have a blessed weekend.
Happy stamping!!
Tosh

What an awesome looking card, Tosh! Love the background stamping and the distressed stars with hemp twine....and most of all, I'm excited to see a stamp with the pledge of allegience...with God in it....as it should be.
