Chickadee Joy

 
Hey everyone!!  Today is release day at Our Daily Bread designs and we are having another blog hop!!!  Glad you stopped by!
If you arrived here from Debi's blog, you are in the right place!  If not, you might want to start at the Our Daily Bread designs Blog to be sure you hop in the correct order, because we are having a Scripture Hop, and you will be collecting our Secret Scripture Words as you hop along, so you will want them in the order given!  You have until Thurs. Feb 4th at 8:00PM EST to complete the requirements to be eligible to win.

There will be THREE BLESSED WINNERS... who will each receive a $15.00 Gift Certificate to the Our Daily Bread designs Store to go toward the stamps of your choice! Winners will be randomly chosen from all the qualified entries.

Here is what you need to do to be eligible to win:

  •  Hop from blog to blog in the order given below, writing down the secret words you will find clearly written  in their post, and leaving a comment on each blog.
          In the email, give her the secret words you found in order .... they will spell out a Scripture verse. 
  •  For an extra chance to win, send her another email telling her the Scripture reference where the verse can be found.
If for any reason a link is broken, simply return to the Our Daily Bread designs Blog  to see who is next on the list, leaving a space for the missing words.  Most often if you can't get on a blog or leave a comment now.... if you wait a little while and try again you usually can.

Now on to my project:




Are you loving these new sets so far?  They are gorgeous!!!!  For my card, I used the sets You Will Find Refuge and Sing For Joy.  I wanted to do an easel card for our big hop today and I had so much fun making this!!!!  Lots of sponging and coloring and getting my fingers all inky!!! Did you notice on the inside of my card, I masked with a piece of punched paper and sponged the scallops at the bottom?  Just gives a little extra something to the inside of the card!

  Hope you are having fun!!

Here are the supplies I used for this card:

StampinUp! Kraft, Perfect Plum, Bella Birds designer paper, Vanilla
Memento Brown Ink
Unknown ribbon to match
Possibly every copic marker I own!


My secret Scripture words are  
FOXES HAVE.

Now head on over to Connie's Fabulous blog.   
Enjoy the hop y'all!!!!
