ODBD 2nd Anniversary Hop!

Today, Kelley is releasing four new and truly wonderful Special Edition sets! Each of us on the Design Team submitted a favourite verse, and those Scripture Verses are two of the sets being released today. If that wasn't exciting enough... she also created two sets of gorgeous borders that fit the Scriptures!  The verse I chose for this set is Psalms 46:10, "Be still and know that I am God."  How often do we find ourselves caught up in this busy world and sometimes we just need to stop and listen to God.  I have this verse stitched on the cover of my bible and I remember singing this as a song with my mother when I was young - so it was the first verse I thought of when we were asked.  I hope it's one of your favourites too!  :)

If you've come from Connie's Blog you are in the right place, if not, start back at the ODBD Blog for all the details!!  :)

Kelley is going to give 3 Prizes of your choice of one of these new Anniversary sets!  Here is what you have to do to qualify for the prizes:
  • Hop from first to last, and collect the secret LETTER each designer will have.
  • Leave a comment for the designer on their blog.
  • Return here to the ODBD blog, leaving a comment to tell us that you visited all the blogs.
  • Email Grace at: gnywening@yahoo.com, giving me the secret message the letters spell.

You have until 8:00 PM EST on Mar 18th (USA time - 10AM Mar 19th Australia EST) to complete the hop and email Grace the message. (Please Note that my blog is set to Australian EST and this will in no way affect when you posted your comment.)

My letter is....... A


Brief details on my card ----
To start with I used this week's SFYTT Challenge for the layout, the brand new Scripture Collection 3 and Vine Borders stamp sets as the focal panel, some new Kioshi paper, my sewing machine (those who know me know how funny that is because my sewing machine and I are not exactly the best of friends), plus a couple of other goodies from ODBD such as the Bow Easy and Fiskars Upper Crest Punch.

Stamps - Scripture Collection 3, Vine Borders (ODBD)
Paper - Green and Pink Bazzill, Very Vanilla, Vellum, Basic Grey Kioshi DSP
Ink - Old Olive, Pretty in Pink, Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Label 1 and Large Circle Nestabilities, Cuttlebug Vintage Die Set, Sewing Machine, Fiskars Upper Crest Border Punch, Pink Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy, Kaisercraft Lush Pearls, Foam Tape.


Also, if you stopped by during the silver/gold challenge, you might want to look at the post below!  ;-)

Next place for you to visit is the amazingly talented Angie Crockett!!!!  Enjoy the hop!!!  :)

Hi Kathy~~

Your card is so wonderful and feminine! I really like how you put the scripture on a round layer, inside a square border! It is a very eye-catching combination!
