ODBDSLC124 Something Musical

Thanks to everyone who participated in the "Stamped Backgroundchallenge last week!! We so enjoyed viewing your interpretation of the challenge.

Before going on to our challenge and winners, I would like to say a big thank you to our guest designer: Katherine Lawson!!  Katherine we have enjoyed working with you!!  Your love for the Lord and the creations you have made are in inspiration to us all!! Thanks again!!  

October's guest designer is Bridget Finlay.  Bridget is another super talented card artist who enjoys crafting and sharing her love for the Lord with others. Welcome  Bridget!!  

Here is more about Bridget from Bridget herself:

I grew up in Alaska, but for the past 26 years I’ve lived in BelfastNorthern Ireland. I came here to work for a summer with a local mission and met my Northern Irish husband who was part of their staff. We have two nearly grown up sons and a little dog we adopted from a rescue center five years ago.
We both work in Bible teaching, studies and counseling with churches and individuals.  I miss theU.S.A. and especially my family who live there, but I’ve come to love this island of Irelandbecause of it’s beauty and people. I’ve been totally hooked on paper crafting since I started making cards about ten years ago – I love being able to create something with the potential to encourage someone who's going through a hard time, make them laugh, or just brighten their day!  My favorite cards include Scripture so I’m a huge fan of ODBD stamps, and I’m thrilled to be asked to be a guest designer with the sweet, talented ODBD team during October!
