ODBD December Challenge

This card is for the Our Daily Bread Designs December Challenge over on Stars and Stamps. The challenge was to use flowers in your cards. If enough people respond to the challenge, Our Daily Bread Designs will pay for shipment of OWH cards to our heroes overseas. I believe this stamp is from the (sadly) now-defunct Pacific Stamp Exchange (PSX). The pink paper embossed with the swirls was given to me long ago. I may well be one of the last stampers / cardmakers on the planet who does not yet own an embossing / die cut machine. I am thinking VERY seriously about buying a Cuttlebug this coming summer, though.

The sketch this card is (rather loosely) based on is the brand-new OWH Sketch #150. This is the second card I've made using this sketch, which came out today. I will show you the other one soon, possibly tomorrow.

My stamping table is fairly clean and with all of these scraps cut and ready to go, I can't seem to resist making cards!  Wonder what I'll come up with tomorrow. First, though, I promised Meital a trip to the mall, and I have about 8 dozen chocolate chip cookies to bake, for our friends on the basketball team. Tomorrow Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv plays against the team based in the town where we live. It has become a tradition for me to bring cookies for the guys to eat on the bus ride back to Tel Aviv after the game.

Hope everyone is enjoying their day!

Your card is wonderful! This is such a cute image and I love the Pink and green too. You will love a cuttlebug and you will not regret the purchase.Paper Studios now have folders at a great price and they work really well.

You are always so productive. Your cards are bright and bring smiles. Very cool how you're close to the basketball team.
