Happy Hump Day everyone!!  This is not only my second post but my second hop of three for today! I am so excited to share Our Daily Bread Designs new September releases with a gorgeous fall image, several verses, and some borders and backgrounds as well. I am so excited about the new Dies Our Daily Bread designs is carrying too!


This is my second hop of the day so if you came here for the Your Next Stamp hop, click here:

If you came here for the Our Daily Bread Designs blog and you have come here from Julie's blog, you are in the right place.  If not you may want to go back to the beginning at the ODBD blog  for a chance to win one of three awesome prizes!! 

That is right!!!There are THREE prizes and this month there will be a $15.00 Gift Certificate, a $20.00 GC and a $25.00 GC to go toward stamps from the ODBD Store, but they are hidden on three different designer's blogs! You won't know who has the prizes! Even we don't know who they are. The Blog Hop will run from 8am Eastern on September 1 through 8pm Eastern September 2. After Sept. 2 three designers with the prizes will randomly select their winner from their commenters. They will check this ODBD post to be sure the person they draw has left their comment here, stating that they have completed the hop and left comments along the way....so make sure you make each stop and write a comment.

Here is a reminder of 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 is my creation:


For my card I used the Peace, Brocade Borders, and Brocade Background (stamped in versamark and embossed in Kaleidoscope embossing powder on not quite navy in the circle panel).  The dp is Retired SU paper-Urban Garden.  The corners are created with the Cuttlebug Vintage corners.  The butterfly uses the SU Sizzix Butterfly Die.  My layout uses an old sketch from Sketches for you to Try designed by Jen.

Thanks for stopping by today and for your sweet comments.  The next stop on the hop is the ever so talented and sweet Grace.

Have a blessed day!!
