The Potter!!!! and a card from Kelley!!!!

First of all, I must say that I am very late with these challenges. I was out of town on Sunday when Jami Bova was introduced as this week's Feature Stamper. I just knew I had to do a card for Jami since she is a super sweet person, she makes fabu cards, and she designed my blog it!!! The girl just rocks!!! So, here is the card I chose to case after much perusing. Congratulations, Jami for such a well-deserved honor!!!!

I changed the colors to comply with CC207 and images, but I tried to stay true with the sketch and the Bible scripture theme. I did not use pattern paper because I am combining this challenge with the CC207. We are to use summer sun, kiwi kiss, and pumpkin pie. When I thought of these colors, I immediately thought southwest feel.

I am previewing a new set by
ODBD You are the Potter to be released March 1st. These clay jars are perfect with these colors. Also, let me just add, that coloring these clay pots is fun and easy. LOVE it.

ODBD You are the Potter
PAPER PTI dark chocolate, pumpkin pie, kiwi kiss, summer sun, gp white

Judy Rozema the Our Daily Bread Design Team Coordinator assigned those of us who wanted to play in a special Valentine Project during February a design team member to send a card to during the month. We were to keep it all a secret and post the card we received during the last week in February. Imagine my surprise when I received this beauty from none other than the owner of ODBD, Kelley Holland!!! IT is GORGEOUS!!!! She is using the ODBD I am the Way set!!!! Her flower is beautifully colored and she added some shimmerz for a soft sparkly effect. Love the colors, the hardware, and stickpin detailing. I think it is just beautiful!!!! Happy Valentine's to me!!!! Thanks so much, Kelley!!!!!
