Happy New Year!!!!

Happy New Year Everyone!!!  May 2010 be a wonderful one for all of you!!!

Today is the first Our Daily Bread Designs Blog Hop of 2010! If you got here from Sandee's Blog you are in the right place! If not, you might want to go back to the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog and start the hop from there!

We are kicking off the new year with the release of three new sets, perfect for Baptisms, Confirmation, and New Baby cards! Three blessed hoppers will be chosen randomly to receive One Set of THEIR CHOICE! All you have to do to be eligible to win is complete the hop, leaving comments on each blog and returning to the ODBD Blog and leaving your answer to the question there by Monday, Jan. 4 at 8PM EST. The question will be posted on the ODBD blog, but here's a tip.. as you are hopping along, take note of your favorite set and what you like best about them! Did I mention there will be THREE WINNERS?!!

One of the big changes that we are so excited about is that Our Daily Bread Designs has accepted a position as a Member Company on Splitcoaststampers!  You can find our new forum HERE!!!

Please visit the ODBD Welcome Forum and leave a comment by January 10! If you do, you will be entered into a drawing to win a $50.00 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store! We have a many things planned including Challenges and a special Prayer Request area! I hope to chat with you over on the ODBD Forum on SCS! Speaking of Challenges, we will be having a weekly challenge! The weekly challenge will be posted on the SCS Forum as well as the ODBD Blog. That means more prizes and awards, and fun for all!!! More on that shortly... stay tuned to the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog and the SCS Forum for further details. For now... just be sure to be back on Jan 9 when our first Challenge of the New Year will kick off!

For my card I started with a base of white and layered with Whirlpool Bazzill and more white.  I then took a piece of whirlpool and punched the four edges using the Fiskars Upper Crest Punch.  Instead of discarding the outer piece, I used it as a border and embellished with Dew Drops.  The centre panel is the punched out panel of whirlpool and a layer of white that has been embossed with the Divine Swirl embossing folder (I tried to get the look of waves!).  I stamped the sentiment from Noah's Ark in Sage Shadow and cut it out with the Ribbon Tags Trio 2 and attached with some golden brown satin ribbon.  Finally I stamped the Ark in Jet Black Stazon and coloured with markers, cut it out and popped it up with foam tape.

Stamps - Noah's Ark (ODBD)
Paper - White and Whirlpool Cardstock
Ink - Jet Black Stazon, Sage Shadow
Accessories - Markers, Blender Pen, Divine Swirl EF, Fiskars Upper Crest Punch, Dew Drops, Golden Brown Satin Ribbon, Ribbon Tags Trio 2, Scissors, Foam Tape.

From here hop to GRACE to see what great inspiration she has for you today!

Have fun hopping, and Happy New Year from the Our Daily Bread Designs Bread Basket!

Hi! I love what you did with this New Noah's Ark Stamp! It really looks 3D--the way it is framed, but the ark kind of rocks on the waves! So creative! I never would have thought to use white instead of brown on the ark. I guess that's why YOU have your job!
