We have a special "May Day" blog hop for you this month! In New England it used to be a custom that on May first, people would make "May Baskets" for neighbors and friends,filling them with flowers or other little gifts,and then go hang them on their doorknob, knock or ring the bell, and run and hide until they had found their basket. It was such a fun "giving" tradition! Some still carry on this tradition, and others are trying to revive it. So for our hop, we are going to collect flowers from each designer to fill our May basket! If you got here from the ODBD blog, you are in the right place! If not, you might want to go to the ODBD Blog and start from there so you don't miss anyone!
There will be three winners for this hop. Each winner will receive a $15.00 store credit toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread designs store!
Here is what you need to do to qualify to win:1. Hop from blog to blog, leaving a comment and collecting the flower that designer is giving away.
2. Return to the ODBD blog and leave a comment that you completed the hop and left comments for each designer. If you were unable to leave a comment for any one, just state their name in this comment and you will still be entered into the drawing. This is meant to be fun, not stressful.
3, Send Grace an email at firstname.lastname@example.org giving me the names of the designers and the flowers you collected.
If for any reason you get lost along the way, just return to the ODBD Blog for the list of names.
This card is water colored with SU markers and then I used the cracked glass technique. I made the bow with the Bow Easy. The image is framed with the Peony and Fancy tags spellbinders die. The For the Graduate stampset is full of verses and sentiments. While it is meant for graduation, the image and verses can used be used for a variety of occasions. This is my fave verse!
Now on to my card details:
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs May release: For the Graduate
Paper: SEI dp, Bitter chocolate Bazill, white CS
Accessories: MS Lace doilie edge punch, Fancy tags spellbinders, peony die from Spellbinder,
From here you will hop to Angie's Blog, but before you leave, here is the flower I'm giving you:
Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comments. Have a blessed day and enjoy the hop!!
