ODBDSLC62, C4C89 My Light....and more!

Happy Memorial weekend!

What a busy week it has been! My girls had their last official school day yesterday...yikes! As you can imagine they are extremely excited about it. We have a few fun things planned for them...like Vacation Bible School, a few Artistic Camps and we'll be doing some road trips as well!!! This will also be my first summer working....sniff! Knowing that my girls and hubby can sleep in for the most of the time is killing me...LOL!!! Anyway, I hope you have something super fun planned for this weekend??? We'll be hanging out here at the house and maybe escape to the pool in the late afternoon. We had some hot, hot temps already and I think I'm getting to old to sun bath all day :) .


If you have time, why don't you come and play the ODBD Shining Light Challenge ~ ODBDSLC62 with us??? Chris has challenged us to a fun Sketch and I hope you like it too? I also made this card for this weeks Crazy 4 Challenges ~ C4C89. The theme this week is to create a card showing your *favorite vacation spot or activity.* My favorite spot is definitely the beach :) !!! (see last picture)

Here is my take on it....




I used a very special Set called Light of the World. This was actually my very first ODBD Stamp Set I have bought many, many years ago. This is also how my journey with Kelley's company started :) !!! The minute I saw  this beautiful Scripture Set I knew I had to have it and as you can imagine I was beyond thrilled when she had ask me to be on her Design Team back then and of course now!!!

My card was put together quickly with the BasicGrey DP from the Olivia Collection, a doily, some Brown Satin Ribbon with the SU Antique Brad, the Brown Pearls and the Prima Flowers...voila!

As always, please make sure to check out my team mates beautiful card ideas ~ Sabrina, Francie, Pat, Chris and our Guest Designer Rosemary. Don't forget to swing by the C4C blog as well!

Enjoy your weekend and thank you for stopping by today! I'll be back on Tuesday with two new cards...see ya then! Hugs ~S~

Fabulous as always, Silke :) For some reason I figured you would get the summer off - go figure. Enjoy you long weekend.

Hey girl, I absolutely LOVE your card!! I never tought of making the lighthouse a feminine card and you just showed me that I need to try it. I don't know...I guess when I think lighthouse I think masculine. Sorry you are not able to sleep in during the girls summer break, but I am sure you will have lots of fun anyhow!! Viel Spass im Pool. Liebe Gruesse, Sabrina Mwwwwaaahhhhh!!
