Wednesday, March 18, 2009
Yesterday was such a fun and exciting day with Our Daily Bread Design's blog hop. Thanks to all of you who participated in the hop and left comments! It is so much appreciated and I hope you had as much fun as I did celebrating the One Year Anniversary Of Our Daily Bread Designs.

Today I would like to share two cards with you that have one thing in common. They both used the TLC212 Ribbon Frame Challenge. I had never done this before and it was so much fun and adds a real neat touch to your cards.
The first card is an inspirational card that uses the sketch from CPS107. TODAY ODBD IS THE FEATURED SPONSOR. You too can play along for another chance to win the You Are the Potter set from ODBD. See the CPS Blog for more details!
My card features the new Our Daily Bread Design's Design Team Scripture Collection 2 stampset, May God Hold You and the new SEI Windsor paper also new to ODBD. I sooooo love this paper. It is so elegant!! The verse is my friend and design team sister, Angie's, favorite verse. (She also made a beautiful card using this same stamp on her card which was featured yesterday. If you have not seen it, you should hop on over and take a look, it will be worth the time.) In addition to completing the challenges TLC212 and CPS107, I also did this week's OCCC Limited Supply Challenge hosted by none other than, Kim Teasdale, the newest dirty dozen member and a past design team member of ODBD (Congratulations Kim!). This challenge was a REAL Challenge for me. Kim's challenge was to use less than 3 layers and only one type of embellishment. I used ribbon for my embellishment and thanks to my nesties I was able to punch things out and fit them like a puzzle piece. What a lot of work, especially using this sketch, but I am happy with the result!!

The second card is a little more cutesy! I used the Bunny Rabbit from High Hopes sent to me in a RAK from my good friend Michelle. Thanks Michelle!!! I participated in the High Hopes Challenge #22 (not to use any designer paper on your card) I used my favorite tool, the cuttlebug, to dry emboss my paper and ink it up to make it look like dp. The Yummy ribbon is May Arts ribbon and it is from Brandi's shop The Little Ribbon Shop on Ebay. The tail is made with liquid applique and glitter to make the fuzzy look. The image is colored with prisma and gamsol, cut out and adhered with dimensionals.
