Our Daily Bread designs

ODBD Bread Basket

Monday, March 16, 2009
It's a celebrations!!! You may be celebrating Saint Patrick's Day, but we are celebrating the One year Anniversary of Our Daily Bread Designs!!! It was one year ago today that Kelley Holland, the owner of ODBD, opened her doors and began this adventure. What a fun adventure it has been! A year later, Kelley offers much more than inspirational stamps, but a great line of accessories as well, including shimmerz, glimmermist, ornare piercing templates, Memory Box, Basic Grey and SEI papers, and even pearls!!

Thanks for stopping in on your way through our first Blog Hop!! If you didn't know about our blog hop and landed here by chance, there are goodies for you along the way and it's important to hit the blogs in the order of the Hop. You'll want to start out with Dina at Mama Dini's Stamperia. If you followed me here from Amy at Pickled Paper Designs, then you are at the right place! There is blog candy along the way and even I don't know where it is, so be sure to start at the beginning of the Hop so you don't miss it!!


For a special grand prize, we are playing "Scripture Scramble!" Each blog has one or two words that you can collect at each stop and put together to make a scripture verse (NIV edition). Once you have collected all the words, send the verse in the correct order, along with the scripture reference by EMAIL to our DT Coordinator, Judy Rozema, at lidarosaroz@gmail.com. Correct entries wil be put into a hat and the Grand Prize winner will receive a set of their choosing from Our Daily Bread Designs and a selection of cards made especially for this celebration by some of the Bread Basket (aka Design Team members). How cool is that?!! Entries must be received by midnight CST on March 19th.


Here is my scripture Scramble word: poverty


Speaking of scriptures, today is the release of two new scripture sets: Design Team Scripture Collections 1 and 2.. Each of the design team members chose a verse that is special to them and Kelley made it into special anniversary sets that are available for purchase today!!! Here is my cards and framed verse:














The verse I chose is Proverbs 3:5,6. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight." It is special to me because this is the verse that my mother in law and I often quoted to eachother when hards time hit especially in her hard battle with cancer. Even when she knew she was only going to be here on this earth for a short time longer, she lived this verse among the seizures, surgeries and treatments. When I run into an obstacle in my life, even nine years later after my dearest friend and mother has passed, this is the verse I turn to. There are times when we don't understand but God does.

This verse can be found in the Design Team Collection 2 stampset. The first card features Basic Grey Porcelain Prints DP, pearls and the Design Team Scripture Collection 2 all available at ODBD. Many of the items on the 2nd card were made using materials from Our Daily Bread Designs new line of products, as well, including the Ornare piercing template that I used for piercing, the glimmermist I used on the chipboard, and the heart pearls. The layout on the 2nd card is for the CPS107 challenge. This week Our Daily Bread Designs is their featured sponsor. Today their design team is also featuring Our Daily Bread Designs new sets!


Now, to continue on, next you'll be visiting Angella at Body, Mind, Spirit, and Stamps. Wait until you see what she has to show you. Her creations are always over the top! Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I hope you enjoy the blog hop. Thanks for your comments! I really enjoy reading them!!

Beautiful work! This scripture speaks right to my heart. I will have to memorize it!!! Reading why this has such meaning for you has tears running down my cheeks. It hits home with me. I have a lot of memories of my mother's battle with this disease.

seamom said...

Very nice cards and framed verse. This is another favorite of mine. It's my own understanding that sets me off on the difficult path. Do you remember the song from some years ago, "Learning to Lean"? I am now old enough to be retired, yet still working on it!
This blog hop has been great! Thanks for your part in making it so....

Lynn said...
