ODBD Bread Basket

Hi All!! It has been quite a while since I last posted here.  We are now in our new home but still have a lot to do to unpack and get settled.  It has now been a week...We love the house but still have a lot to get used to moving 500 miles away.  All in time.... I am popping in to share one of the darling new sets at Our Daily Bread Designs.  I have missed my stamps but after not playing with them for so long I feel mojoless.  It may take a bit to get myself retrained. LOL!

The set I used for my card is Cat Sympathy (an ODBD stamp set).  While a lot of the sentiments are great for sending to a friend who has lost their dear pet friend, it is such a darling image for any occasion.  The designer paper is not really paper, it is material.  I found it at Hobby Lobby prior to our move.  The image is colored with copics.  The die to frame the image is a Spellbinders Floral Ovals.  The ribbon is May Arts Silk tied with the bow easy.

Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you are inspired in some way by my creation! 
Have a blessed day!!

hugs and blessings,

Chris, it's so great to see you back, full of lots of gorgeous creativity to boot!! You know, when we made one move and were in a corporate apartment, I spent a lot of time hanging out at the grocery store (kind of like a local market that had a wonderful deli and made 2 recipe books.) That was before stamping, so don't feel bad if you find yourself wandering a takes time to become acclamated in a new area! Just take your time and enjoy the adventure!

Melodie said...

Wow, I love this cat with this wonderful paper.

Riet said...
