ODBDSLC58 Sketch

Thanks to everyone who participated in the "No Coloring" challenge last week!!  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 our prize winners and the next challenge, we would like to express a special Thank you to our March/April Guest designer Lori Ulrich since this is the last challenge she will be joining us for as our special guest.  Lori has done an exceptional job and she will indeed be missed by the team.  Thanks for your gorgeous creations, Lori!!   See you in blog land!!!

And now introducing our new guest for May/June:  Rosemary Dennis!!!  Rosemary is another talented crafter who regularly joins our weekly challenges.  I know she will be an inspiration to us all.  

Here are a few words about Rosemary:

"I live in Washington state with my husband, Dave, and two boys, Levi and Gabriel. I started scrapbooking in about 2000 when my oldest, Levi, was almost 2. I did that for a few years and then started making cards in about 2005. I discovered the online world of paper crafting in 2008, but didn't really get involved until January of 2009 when I started a Flicker Photostream and my Splitcoast Stampers gallery. I finally took the "blogging plunge" in May of 2010. I have had the privilege of having my cards published in Card Makers, Scrap & Stamp Arts and Stampers Sample Take Ten. I'm so very excited to be a guest designer for ODBD and to share my love of God through the projects I create using ODBD stamps!"
And now on to our challenge....
