This week's challenge is an Easter/Spring Inspiration Challenge!!! Please do not include images with Easter Bunnies.  



The religious meaning of an egg ....
While many associate Easter eggs as a commercialized symbol or tradition of Easter, the egg to the Christian symbolizes Chris's passion, death and resurrection.  Christians saw the egg's shell as a symbol of the protective darkness of the life-giving tomb; a hatching chick represented the risen Christ emerging from the tomb on Easter meaning.  Just like life emerges from the hatched egg so does Christ emerge alive from the tomb.  Life in an egg begets a new generation of life; Christ generates new life for all creation...putting death to death!!  The best egg is an empty egg...hatched out..purpose fullfilled..a new life begun.  The best tomb ever is an empty tomb!! 

"The Lord whom you seek is no longer here, for He is risen as he said!!" said the angel.





You have until Sunday, March 29 at 8 p.m. to join us for a chance to be spotlighted for the Shining the Light award or to win a $15 gift certificate. Please use the keyword ODBDSLC231 and link your creation directly in the linky below.

A huge happy anniversary. The reason God has allowed you this time is because you are doing HIS work. Your stamps are so beautiful and His word will endure forever. I have known of ODB for years but had no idea it was that long. Time flies. I have several of your retired sets so I know that it has been a looonng time. =) Thank you so much for wonderful work creating the stamps, dies, and paper packs. Keep up God's work! I had fun with you and your team this week. Your designers always do such beautiful work. You have been blessed all the way around!
Huge crafting hugs!!

When I first started making cards, I couldn't find one religious stamp. I was so happy to find ODB Designs. I have a decent supply of your stamps that I use on a regular basis. Thank you for all you & I hope the Lord leads you to stay around for a long letter time to come.
Robin said...
I have been a rubber stamper for 20 years and have seen trends come and go. Our Daily Bread fills a void that no one else has filled. Sometimes I want a card that inspires and strengthens the recipient, and your stamps are perfect for those occasions. I find myself reaching for them more and more. Thank you for taking the plunge to start your company and thanks for offering us such beautiful inspiration (and for the chance to win!)
