If you are here for the Our Daily Bread Designs New Release Blog Hop, you are in the right place. If you are here for my blog candy or the Divine Diva Challenge, please scroll down or click the links.

Happy Thursday!! I hope you all are having a good day!! This week is just so full of fun!! Today I am sharing the new release from Our Daily Bread Designs. Infact the whole team is going to be showcasing cards or projects using the three gorgeous new releases with a BLOG HOP!!!

If you came here from the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog (ODBD) then you are at the right spot.
If not, you may want to go back and visit the ODBD blog. You really want to stop and make comments at each stop along the way because there are three prizes hidden and even the dt does not know where it is!!! At the end, you must let us know you have visited all the blogs along the way and what you liked best about the new sets.

I used the new Basic Grey Indian summer dp and the new release from Our Daily Bread Designs- With Heartfelt Sympathy !! I just love this paper and good sympathy sets with the right sentiments are hard to find!!!

I embossed my background with leaves and swiss dots. My ribbon is lace through the Lattice Border from Spellbinders. While it is hard to see in the picture, the dragon fly is colored with gold irredescent glimmermist.




Card Recipe:
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs- With Heartfelt Sympathy
Paper: Rose Red, Bazzill Chocolate, BG Indian Summer
Accessories: Hero Arts Pearls, Lattice Border from Spellbinders, Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots, Cuttlebug Leaves Folder, sewing machine, gold glimmermist,

Since there is so much more eye candy to see along the way on the hop, I am making this post brief so you can continue on your way. The next stop is Lorelie. Just in case the hop or links are not linking in the hop correctly, I am providing you with the next three stops along the way: Debi, Betty, and Silke.

Thanks for stopping by today!! I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop. Remember you must leave a comment on each blog along the way in order to enter for the ODBD Prize. You never know where the prize is hidden!! Enjoy the hop!!

Blessings,
Chris
