I'm so excited! and I don't have to hide it!!

A few weeks ago I was contacted by Chris, one of the DT coordinators for Our Daily Bread Designs and she asked if I would want to be part of the new Challenge Team that Our Daily Bread was putting together.  I jumped at the chance!  If you aren't familiar with Our Daily Bread Designs,  they have THE MOST BEAUTIFUL Christian themed stamps EVER!!  So exciting for me!!
Here are a couple of cards I made with the stamp set "Light of the World"  I am in LOVE with this set, the lighthouse is gorgeous and the sentiments are fabulous!

Sarosa said...

Natalie, lovely cards! I also appreciated your having the more ornate card, and then the plainer cards below. It confirmed to me that I really do lean toward more "open space" designs. Sometims I fear it's just because I'm a less able stamper, but your identical coloring in each style proves to me it really is what I prefer! Perhaps it's because the main image pops out more? Anyway, thank you, and I hope you'll continue presenting cards this way!

Lynelle said...

I love that you showed the 2 different layouts and coloring. Great job. looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Charlene said...

Congratulations! I think the second set is my favorite. Great set for giving or receiving.
