ODBDSLC8 April Fools or Not? Real of Faux Stitching AND Blog Hop Winners!

We have lots to announce today, because besides the Shining the Light Winners and new Challenge (below), we also have the winners for our DT April 1 Release Day Hop! The following two blessed people were chosen by Random.Org to receive one $15.00 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store for stamps!

Our first winner is #18 - Dani!
Our second winner is #15- Becky

Congratulations Dani and Becky!
Please email Kelley at to get your gift certificate code!
Enjoy your new stamps!

We also promised to announce the player who had the most correct guesses in our little April Foolery Fun. We cased another DT Sister and then sent our card to that sister, who posted it on her blog, and then we asked Kelley and our hoppers to try and guess who actually made the cards. First, I'm happy to announce that Kelley DID eventually get them all!!! It took her some work... but she got them!!! Of the players who submitted their guesses, Pati correctly guessed the most! Congratulations Pati! You may have just been guessing but you got four right, and that was more than any one else! I guess we made it REAL hard, but thanks to all who played along! If you'd like to see who really created the cards, check back on our blogs as we are all posting our own cards now! We hope it was fun for all!
Now... on to Shining the Light Challenge and Winners!

Thanks to everyone who participated in the "Easter" challenge last week!! We so enjoyed viewing all your beautiful creations and had such a difficult time choosing just a few to spotlight this week. You all did such a beautiful job!!

This week's challenge:

This week the challenge team is challenging you to an April Fools Stitching
Challenge. Will you fool us with faux stitching or use real sti
tching on your card?

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize, a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Thursday, April 8 at 8 p.m. EST. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments on your creations, we would love to see them if you have them.

As a way of recognizing those who do use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing 1 to 2 creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award. In order to qualify for this award, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your sub mission added to Mr. Linky by April 8 at 8 p.m. EST.

If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC8. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.
