Our Daily Bread Designs Bread Basket

Monday, November 1, 2010
Happy Monday Everyone!!  I hope you all had a great weekend and are ready for another week to begin.  The Our Daily Bread Designs team is kicking off the month and week with a new release blog hop!!

Welcome to Our Daily Bread designs' November Release Blog Hop!  If you came here from Randi's blog you are in the right place, if not you may want to start at the beginning since there is lots of fun , inspiration and prizes on this hop!!

We the Bread sticks at Our Daily Bread Designs are so excited about sharing the new releases this month.!!  We hope you will be just as excited when you see them.    These sets are just perfect for the upcoming holidays!! To make this hop even more fun, Kelley has offered some very generous prizes!!!


There will be FOUR  PRIZES this month: Three Prizes of your choice of one free tag set and matching die cut, and ONE GRAND PRIZE of the NOVEMBER BREAD BASKET BUNDLE!!!

All you have to do to be eligible to win is be sure to complete the hop, and return to the ODBD Blog to leave a comment, telling us you:

1. Completed the hop
2. Left comments for each designer (name any you are unable to comment on)
3. Answer the question (What is your favorite Thanksgiving dessert or if you live in a country that does not celebrate Thanksgiving, what is your favorite holiday dessert?)

Easy peasy right!!

The Hop will run from 8am EST Nov 1 until 8pm EST Nov. 2. The winners will be randomly selected from the commenters that complete the hop and answer the question on the ODBD Blog. The Winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog on Nov. 3 so make sure to check back on the blog then to see if you won!!

Now on to my creation.

Each year my mom is looking for me to make tags and the timing of this release is just perfect to make her a gift boxed set of tags!!  The designs of the font and images are just so elegant and beautiful.  For my creation I used all three tag sets: Mistletoe Tag set, Holly Tag set, and Poinsettia Tag set.  The best part too is that Our Daily Bread Designs even has a tag die to cut out the tags. Woo hoo!!  In addition to creating my tags I made a gift box to give it to her in (this is not a template but rather my own design.





I tried to vary my colors and designs.  My Dad use to be a baker and has a delish secret recipe for Dutch Almond Cakes.  So he makes 30 plus cakes each Christmas while my mom does the cleaning and all the packaging. LOL! (Hmm!  wonder which one I would rather do?)  I thought these tags may be perfect for what they need.  The box is made with a combo of black paper and the Basic Grey Jovial Paper.

challenges:
Craft Your Passion: Anything Goes;Lexi's Creations: Anything goes;
Cowgirl Sunday Challenge: Bling It On...gold embossing powder, pearls and glitter on my tags

Have a blessed day and thanks for all your comments.

I was admiring that gorgeous box and tags when I saw them in the SCS gallery - a beautiful and useful gift. Not sure if I'd rather be doing the baking or the cleaning, although I do like making baked gifts there's always the extra stress of wanting them to be totally perfect.

Hi Chris!

This is a fantastic gift! At first look, in the 1st photo, I thought it was made of sewn leather! Wow! You certainly know what you are doing! (We all know that!) This is such a thoughtful gift! The tags look beautiful and so crisp!

I wonder if I could request a splenda made cake for me? Diabetic? LOL I don't know if you ship! LOL

Your Mom, will love this box every year, and she may expect the tags every year, too!

He IS Able,

Beautiful designs! My favourite Christmas memory ...difficult question as many to choose from. One favourite, my Dad set up the card table in front of our beautifully decorated Christmas tree, and we had homemade meat pie followed by Christmas pudding or cookies (cookies were my choice as I don't like pudding). After, we would head off to church for the service where many Christmas hymns were sung -- my favourite, Silent Night.
