Thursday, July 1, 2010
Hello everyone! Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs July Release Blog Hop! We have been having fun playing with these sets and I know you will too! If you came here from Kathy's blog you are in the right place, if not you may want to start at the beginning. There is lots of inspiration along the way and some awesome prizes. Kelley has generously offered a free stamp set to three random winners!!!!

Here in the USA, this is a big holiday weekend and we know many are busy with company and family events, so we're going to keep the hop real simple! There are no secret words to collect, no email to send to me... just a fun blog hop!

Here is what you have to do to be eligible to win one of the prizes:

  • Hop to each blog, leave a comment on each one.
  • Return to the ODBD blog and leave a comment here telling us that you completed the hop and left everyone comments.
  • If for any reason you cannot leave a comment, please give us the name/s of the designers you were unable to leave comments for... and you'll still be qualified for the drawing.
Here's the fun part! There are THREE prizes of WINNER'S CHOICE ONE FREE SET, but they are hidden on three different designer's blogs! You won't know who has the prizes!
The Blog Hop will run from 8am Eastern on Thursday, July 1 through 8pm Eastern Friday July 2. At that time the three designers with the prizes will randomly select their winner from their commenters. They will check this post to be sure the person they draw has left their comment here, stating that they have completed the hop.... and then they will give me the name and the winners will be announced on Sat. the 3rd here on the ODBD Blog!

I chose to used the set Bless this Home for my creation today. My sister and brother in law just had their house closing this week so I thought this would make a good housewarming gift for them.


I apologize for the glare in the picture. I took several photos but the flower soft globe has a natural sheen and I couldn't remove it. I hope you are able to view all the added flower soft for my moss, grass and flowers. The image is colored with copics. Isn't it a beautiful summertime scene of a cottage?

picture recipe:
stamps: Bless this Home from Our Daily Bread Designs
paper: Baja Breeze
accessories: Embossing folder, Fancy Tags Spellbinders, flower soft, flower soft globe, blue rhinestones, sewing machine, and frame
challenges:
Sew Many Challenges- anything goes
Ooh La La Creations -simply summer
All Sorts- embossing I used dry embossing)
Pile It On: Do something with paper
Papertake Weekly-stitching
Our Creative Card Corner- Blue and Green



I hope you enjoyed my creation. Thanks for your visit and comments. The next stop on the hop is the oh so talented Becca.

Enjoy the hop!!

blessings,
Chris
