ODBD July Hop!!!

Hello everyone! Welcome to our July Release Blog Hop!  If you've come from Dawn's Blog you are in the right place, if not, start back at the ODBD Blog so you don't miss any of the fun!  :)

In the USA, this is a big holiday weekend and I know many are busy with company and family events, so we're going to keep the hop real simple! There are no secret words to collect, no email to send to me... just a fun blog hop!

Here is what you have to do to be eligible to win one of the prizes:

*Hop to each blog, leave a comment on each one.
*Return to the ODBD Blog and leave a comment on the Hop post telling us that you completed the hop and left everyone comments.
*If for any reason you cannot leave a comment, please give us the name/s of the designers you were unable to leave comments for... and you'll still be qualified for the drawing.
*Here's the fun part! There are THREE prizes of WINNER'S CHOICE ONE FREE SET, but they are hidden on three different designer's blogs! You won't know who has the prizes!

The Blog Hop will run from USA 8am Eastern on Thursday, July1 through USA 8pm Eastern Friday July 2. At that time the three designers with the prizes will randomly select their winner from their commenters. They will check the ODBD post to be sure the person they draw has left their comment here, stating that they have completed the hop.... and then they will give Grace the name and the winners will be announced Saturday 3rd (USA time) on the ODBD Blog!

Today I've used the Our Daily Bread (for the wheat wreath) and The Living Bread (for the verse) sets.  I've stamped the wheat in Sunflower ink and kept overlapping it to create a wreath and the cut it with circle nestabilities and matted with the large scallop circles.  I've stamped the verse in Memento Rich Cocoa.  The paper I've used is Basic Grey Origins and accented with a little paper piercing, some Kaisercraft rhinestones and a piece of yellow grosgrain ribbon.

Stamps - Our Daily Bread, The Living Bread (ODBD)
Paper - Chocolate Chip, White, Basic Grey Origins DSP
Ink - Sunflower (ODBD), Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories - Class Circle Large, Large Scallop Circle (lg) Nestabilities, Paper Piercer, Mat Pack, Kaisercraft Rhinestones, Yellow Grosgrain Ribbon, Foam Tape.

There's more fun ahead, next stop is CHRIS!!!  Thanks for visiting and enjoy the hop!!

Your wreath frame is just perfect for the verse. I love the rich brown for the text and the scallop frame. Just delightful in every way!

Traci S. said...

Hi Kathy~

I love what you have done with these stamps-- your card looks Wonderful!

First of all, I love the round center...and how you used the wheat stamp in a wreath. That was very clever indeed! I need to think of how to do that with other stamps! I like the sunflower coloring of the wheat--as if it is out under the sun. It looks beautiful surrounding that verse. Such a meaningful Scripture! Aren't they all? :)

I really like your backgrounds and the ribbon, too! It is such an eye-catching card!

He IS Able,
