ODBD's 4th Anniversary Release Hop

Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs 4th Anniversary Special Design Team Edition  Release Blog Hop!  If you've arrived here via Sandee's Blog, then you are in the right place, if not, you may want to start back at the ODBD Blog so that you don't miss anyone!!!  :)  If any links are broken along the way you can just check the list of links from the ODBD blog.

The bread sticks are so excited to be celebrating this special milestone in the life of ODBD!  It is such a blessing to work for a company that brings glory to God in every stamp set created, and offers us the tools we need to do the same with every card we create!  If you are a long term follower of ODBD, then you know that each year, the Design Team submits a favorite Scripture for the special anniversary sets, and those suggestions have been the sum total of all the "Scripture Collection" stamp sets in the store.  This year, the special sets include our favorite Scriptures, but also quotes and sentiments that we feel would be great on cards or  projects.  I think you will find some of the most encouraging and uplifting words available in stamps in these special anniversary sets!

So now, here are the Details of the Anniversary Hop:

  • The Hop will run 8am US EDT Mar. 17 until 8pm US EDT Mar 18.
  • The winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog on Mar 19.
  • Four  hoppers will win a FREE ANNIVERSARY SET and One blessed hopper will win The Complete Anniversary  Bread Basket Bundle!!!
Here is what you have to do to be qualified to win one of these prizes:
  • Hop to each designer’s blog and leave a comment
  • Return to the Our Daily Bread designs blog and leave a comment telling us that you completed the hop, making note if there were any you could not comment on.
  • Along with your statement that you completed the hop, leave some Anniversary wishes for Kelley and the gang at ODBD!
The sentiment I chose for this year's Sentiment Collection is a special one for me.  Throughout my life my Mother has said this to me in various forms and these are the words she's says to me today.  Whenever things are tough, or I'm sad or struggling with things, these are the words she says to me.  It reminds me that no matter how bad things seem, I have things to be thankful for and someone (or actually many people) who loves me.  So Mum, this one is for you.....I love you!!!

My card is easy to make, a base of pink, topped with chocolate and white and some Memory Box Gossamer DP.  Then a strip of chocolate (punched) and topped with more Gossamer, crochet lace and satin ribbon.  I've cut a lacey circle out of white, topped with pink cut with Small Circle Nesties and glued down.  Next I've added a ZVA Flourish.  The Sentiment is stamped in pink and cut with Large Circle Nesties, matted with pink (cut with Small Circle Nesties) and white (cut with Lacey Circle Nesties) and popped up on foam tape.  To finish I've added a bow, silver cord, pink heart button and a double heart charm.

Stamps - Sentiment Collection
Paper - White, Pink Bazzill, Chocolate Chip, Memory Box Gossamer DP
Ink - Pink
Accessories - Lacey Circle, Small and Large Classic Circle Nestabilities, White Crochet Lace, Pink Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy, Pink Heart Button, Double Heart Charm, Silver Cord, ZVA Pearl Flourish, SU Scallop Punch, Foam Tape.

Next on the hop is the totally sweet and incredibly talented CHRIS!!!

That's all from me today, thanks for visiting and enjoy the hop!!!
