Hi Friends!!

I hope all are doing well!!  I am so excited today to be sharing a special release for Our Daily Bread Designs 6th Anniversary!! Today ODBD has been open for business for 6 years!! Each year the team compiles their favorite verses, sentiments and quotes and Kelley creates stamp sets available to the public including those favorites on the Anniversary date!! It is one of my very favorite releases and sets of stamps each year!!!  You won't want to miss the inspiration from the team using these sets!!!

Three winners will be randomly chosen from the comments left on the designers blogs to receive a $25 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store, to be used toward the purchase of ODBD Stamps; ONE lucky random commenter will be randomly chosen to win the 2014 Anniversary Bundle!  You have until March 18, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. EDT to leave your comments! The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on March 19th, so be sure to check back to see if you won!

For my first creation I used my favorite sentiment or contribution to the sets: "His Mercies are New every Morning!!"  based on the verse from Lamentations.

Lamentations 3: 22-23
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases:
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.



My second creation uses a sentiment from the same collection: Sentiments Collection 3, Hummingbird and ODBD Custom Hummingbird die as well as uses the Blooming Garden Collection, and Beautiful Borders.


For more inspiration, please visit my dt sisters:

Julie * Wanda * Chris * Stacy * Lisa * Grace * Dawn * Diana * Sandee  Sabrina *Silke * Cathy * Angie * Linda Lori * Cheryl * Audrey * Robin

Traci S. said...

Hi Chris!

I've missed you! I think these cards are stunning. I love the beautiful trail of flowers on the first card. And, all of those details on the second card. I keep looking at it, and seeing more and more things.

I love how every day is made new by Him. It is such a comfort. A new chance of improvement every day.

And, the second sentiment is so true! At first it may not have felt like a blessing...friends who didn't like the "new" me, but I look back and am so grateful. This is just one example. I'm glad you offered this to be made into a stamp.

He IS Able!
