Welcome to Our Daily Bread Designs Stamping In Time: On Assignment Challenge(SNTODBD28)! The assignment is Our Daily Bread Design stamps. We have a challenge host this rotation. Please give a warm welcome to Wanda Cullen!  Wanda is challenging us to a theme with a twist. "It's a Distress Call!" You use any distressing techniques such as tearing, sponging, sanding, crumpling, etc., but the twist is to actually mail your card to encourage someone who has some real life distress going on and could use a little encouragement. We look forward to seeing what you create using ODBD stamps! Check out the ODBD blog link to find out how to play along with us!

Here are the samples created by the ODBD designers with the "It's a Distress Call!" challenge. Check out their blog links to see what they wanted they created!

Angie, Sabrina, Fran, and our guest host, Wanda!

For my card I am using ODBD Faith stamp set.   I decided to go a wee bit CAS styled today.  Well, it is definitely CAS for me.  My distressing is mostly sponging and a little bit of rolled paper edges.  I colored the image using copic markers and added a touch of sparkle with a sakura gel pen. The colors are from The Curtain Call Act 68!  Who can pass up these springtime hues?  I used a little doily that I offset off the edge.  I think someone called this look a sidekick before.  I am also using some mini pom pom fringe that I distressed with some PTI camomille using the cube itself and lightly brushing across the pom poms.  This stuff is too cute!  Look, no bow!  Amazing feat for me!

 I am also entering my care for a few other blog challenges!
