ODBDSLC50 Sketch-March/ April Guest Designer

Thanks to everyone who participated in the "Over Stamping" challenge last week!! We had so many participants!!! We so enjoyed viewing the many beautiful creations and had such a difficult time choosing who to spotlight this week. Wow!! So much talent and inspiration!!! 

Before we go on to this week's challenge, I would like to announce and welcome Pat Smethers as one of our full-time Challenge Team designers.  Pat is so sweet and adds an eclectic style to our creations.  Welcome Pat!!!!

I would also like to introduce our new guest designer for March/April.  This young lady has been an active player in our challenges and does a beautiful job with her ODBD Stamps!!  Welcome Lori Ulrich from Saints Rule!!  We can't wait to have you join us next week!!!

Here is a little intro about Lori:

My name is Lori Ulrich.  My husband and I share our small Kentucky farm with 4 beautiful St. Bernards and 3 handsome English Shephards.  We also raise sheep and have a retired racehorse living on our place to mix it up a little!  As you can imagine life is never dull here on our little slice of heaven!  My oldest step-son and his family live less than 20 minutes away!  So I get to see all 5 grandbabies often!  Our youngest is attending university in Virginia completing his Master’s in Missions. 

When I’m not stamping, I work as an accountant with a utility company.  I first discovered scrapbooking in 2003 and it proved very therapeutic for me.  A dear friend suggested stamping in 2009 which I took to like a duck does to water!  Stamping has proved to be such a blessing for me and a very powerful outreach.  I try to spread God’s love to those who are ill, need cheering up or a hearty hello!  I happened upon Our Daily Bread Designs in 2009 and instantly became a fan.  I love being able to share God’s word with those who receive my cards.  I appreciate the opportunity to guest for a few months.  It’s always fun to create!  Blessings…

And now on to our challenge!!!
