Happy Third Anniversary ODBD!!!


If you got here from Julie's fabulous blog, you are in the right place! 
If not, you might want to start at the Our Daily Bread designs Blog and hop from there!
The Hop will run from 8am EST Mar.17 until 8pm EST. Mar.18 and the winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog on Sat. Mar 19 along with the Shining the Light winners and challenge.

For this special event, there will be SIX PRIZES of One Free Set,
and ONE GRAND PRIZE of the Bread Basket Bundle (All 3 Anniversary Sets)
Here is what you need to do to be entered in the drawing:
  • Leave comments for each designer on each blog
  • Return to the ODBD Blog and leave a comment, telling us you completed the hop and noting any blogs you were unable to comment on.
  • Answer the question on the ODBD blog
Ok, on with the show!!  Here is a close up of my card!


This is such a powerful verse, don't you think?  Even as a Christian, I sometimes have a hard time seeing how God is working in my life.  But the bible tells us to be assured and confident in our faith.  We have hope for our future because God is always with us, even when we think we don't see Him!  Praise the Lord!!!

Isn't this Fancy Labels set just gorgeous?!!!  And to have it coordinate with the Spellbinders Labels Seventeen die is such a beautiful thing!!  LOL!  To start my card, I stamped the label in SU! Bordering Blue ink, and the scripture in Memento Black ink.  Then I used my Grand Calibur to cut out the Labels Seventeen and a Petite Scalloped oval.  To create the mat for the Labels Seventeen, I just lightly traced around the outside of the die with a pencil and carefully cut it out.  The background paper is from Prima and is embossed with the SU! Lattice folder.  The card stock I used is Neenah Cream and SU! Bordering Blue.  The lacy border is punched with an EKSuccess border punch.  I added SpellbindersZva pearl swirls and tiny pearls to the Martha Stewart punched butterflies.  I made the bow with my Bow Easy tool and I added little roses to the bow.  I did a little sponging to the tips of the flower petals, the edges of the scalloped oval and the edges of the blue pieces of card stock.  I finished the card with a few more Zva pearls on the border strip and one large SU! pearl to the top of the oval. 

Now, before I send you on your way, 
I want to tell you that we do have one more exciting way you can win 
during this Special Anniversary Celebration!

We will be taking submissions of favorite verses for a card until Mar. 31, 11:59pm est. There is a special post on the ODBD Blog and a special link to it in the right side bar so you can easily find it through the rest of this month. Simply read and follow the rules, and submit the verse you’d most like to see on a card or scrapbook layout. If your verse is selected you will receive the set free and you will be invited to be a guest designer for the release of these new stamps when they are ready, by sending a photo of your card to Kelley to post on the ODBD blog. Please see THIS post for all the details!
We can’t wait to see your submissions!

I thank you so much for joining us today!  We love having you visit!!!  From here, hop on over to the amazingly talented Silke's blog!  You won't be disappointed!

Folder...it looks wonderful on your beautiful card. I really love your pearl flourish and those beautiful flowers on the ribbon. The scalloped lace paper on the bottom is wonderful...and I really like how you described the Scripture. That is the most important part, isn't it? That we understand His Word. And, you framed His Word so beautifully! It is a wonderful focus.

    I must share this verse with my husband - or he has already had a peep at your blog as he reminded yesterday just how much as a Christian I should have more faith. I am about to be made redundant and am feeling a little shaky at the moment.
