This is a new release from ODBD called Serenity. I saw this sketch challenge and loved it ! My thoughts were to showcase this stamp with it. The paper is K&Co., I think the pad is called Roam... and I stitched it with the vine stitch on my sewing machine. tfl!

This is a card I made for a helper of mine at church. Love this stamp set from Hannah stamps and this great dp...blue awning by K&Co. The windows are colored with copics and SU markers as is the girl. I popped up 2 of the windows for a little dimension and used my favo punches from ms again! Oh, and the leaves were cuttlebugged before punching out. This girl's skirt is also paper pieced. tfl!

My 2nd take on this release Keep My Lamp Burning from ODBD is here...
The cool thing about this set is that there are 4 really cool verses that come with this lighthouse and they fit nicely in that left corner of the image! Dina Kowal http://mamadinis.blogspot.com/ designed this set for Kelley and she has done a gorgeous job!
If you have time,..stop at her blog...she is in Indonesia working with her dh who is a preacher.
She is one very talented lady! Dont forget to click on the side of my blog and check out what all the rest of the dt members are doing with these great new sets! tfl!
Here is my 2nd take on the new release from ODBD. The dp is the porcelain pad from BG. The flourish was a little cheapie set from a craft store here.. had to scrub the heck off the stamp to get it to accept the ink...maybe cuz it is a cheap stamp?? I dont know.. but I liked it! When making this I felt like I am needing some new ideas! Good thing ODBD comes out with such beautiful new sets every month to make us dt members look so good!! tee hee.....

I began to make a set of cards for a gift and then decided they needed a box to go in. The gift is complete! Well, honestly I am not completely thrilled with the end result...but this is it for now..
The dp again is from Urban Prarie collection at BG. However the box dp is from 29th St. Market. Flowers are primas and I used the MS punches. The birds are colored with copics and I "shimmerized" them. Oh, did u know that ODBD carries shimmerz????? :)tfl!
