ODBDSLC79 Make your Own Embellishment Challenge

Happy Saturday all!! After having the same challenge for two weeks, we are excited to be back!! Before going on to announcing the winners and introducing the new challenge, I would like to welcome our newest guest: Sue Worthington. Sue has been an active participant and our challenges and is a real inspiration. Welcome Sue!! We look forward to seeing your ODBD Challenge creations.

More about Sue......

My name is Sue Worthington, and I am a widow, blessed with 2 daughters, 2 sons, and 11 wonderful grandchildren- 7 boys and 4 girls. I thank my wonderful parents for teaching me the value of giving “homemade” gifts, which nurtured my crafting skills early on in my life. My soulmate, John, was a woodworker and carpenter, and we made lots of crafty things in the few short years we had together, but after his death, it was my daughter-in-law, who taught me to make a card while visiting, and I was hooked!!

With the grandchildren, came scrapbooking, and I frequently “peeked” at the marvelous creations on Splitcoaststampers, but it took me a while to gather the courage to upload a card. From there, I began doing challenges, and met some of the most talented, caring, and encouraging friends I have EVER known in my life - God is so good!!

I am honored, excited, and humbled to be a guest designer for Our Daily Bread Designs, and to work with this talented Design Team! These beautiful Scriptures and inspiring images are an amazing way to share my Faith, to bless others, and to spread His Word.
I am so grateful for this opportunity – thanks, Kelley and Chris!

WELCOME SUE!! Sue will be our guest for October and November.

And now on to this week's challenge and winners....
