Our Daily Bread Designs Bread Basket

Saturday, March 17, 2012
Happy Saturday all!! Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs Anniversary Blog hop!! Today marks the 4th official anniversary of Our Daily Bread Designs!!  Since it is a special day, Kelley and the team have a special anniversary release for you!!


The bread sticks are so excited to be celebrating this special milestone in the life of ODBD!  It is such a blessing to work for a company that brings glory to God in every stamp set created, and offers us the tools we need to do the same with every card we create!  If you are a long term follower of ODBD, then you know that each year, the Design Team submits a favorite Scripture for the special anniversary sets, and those suggestions have been the sum total of all the "Scripture Collection" stamp sets in the store.  This year, the special sets include our favorite Scriptures, but also quotes and sentiments that we feel would be great on cards or  projects.  I think you will find some of the most encouraging and uplifting words available in stamps in these special anniversary sets! 


 If you got here from Kathy’s Awesome Blog, you are in the right place. If not you might want to start at the Our Daily Bread designs Blog so you don't miss anyone. If you get lost along the way, simply return there, where the entire hop is listed with links.


Now, here are the Hop Details:

The Hop will run 8am 
EST Mar. 17 until 8pm EST Mar 18. The winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog on Mar 19.



 Four hoppers will win a FREE ANNIVERSARY SET and One blessed hopper will win The Complete Anniversary Bread Basket Bundle!!! 



Here is what you have to do to be qualified to win one of these prizes:

Hop to each designer’s blog and leave a comment Return to the Our Daily Bread designs blog and leave a comment telling us that you completed the hop, making note if there were any you could not comment on. Answer the question on the ODBD blog when you leave your comment.


Here is my creation using a quote by Abraham Lincoln in Quote 2:




The sentiment is framed with the Spellbinders Mega Curved Rectangles and the Fleur de Lis Rectangles.  The flowers are homemade using Martha Stewart's large and small hydrangea flower punches (punched on Stampin up soft sky and sponged with Baja Breeze ink, then scored),  the Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish, and the Martha Stewart Leaf and twig punch.  The background is embossed with the Provocraft Scrollwork Embossing folder.  


Thanks for stopping by today!! I hope you are somehow inspired by my creations!!  For more inspiration, the next stop on the hop is the exceptionally talented Grace
Have a blessed Day!!!

hugs and blessings,
