Happy 4th Anniversary ODBD!!!


Good morning and welcome to the  
Our Daily Bread designs 4th Anniversary Special Design Team Edition Release Blog Hop!  
If you got here from Lori's Blog, you are in the right place!  If not, you might want to start at the ODBD Blog so you are sure to not miss anyone!  If any links are lost along the way, you can always get the entire list of links from the ODBD Blog as well!

  We 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 time 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.  We think you will find some of the most encouraging and uplifting words available in stamps in these special anniversary sets!

So now, here are the Details of the Anniversary Hop:

  • The Hop will run 8am EDT Mar. 17 until 8pm EDT 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.
  • Along with your statement that you completed the hop, leave some Anniversary wishes for Kelley and the gang at ODBD!


I chose to submit a quote this year!  I have always loved this one by Ralph Waldo Emerson.  Such eloquence!  I hope you will enjoy it too!  Ok I'll make this quick since you have lots of hopping to do!!  I combined my quote, which is part of the new Quote Collection 2 set, with a beautiful older set called Path of Life.  I colored the image with copics.  I cut out two windows with the Spellbinders/ODBD Custom Window Die from White card stock and a soft blue designer paper.  I cut out the quote and attached it to the bottom of the window.  Then I added Cheery Lynn Designs Flourishes and Prima Flowers!  I used the top parts of the blue window for embellishments in the bottom corners too!


All of us really appreciate you taking some time to hop with us!  
Thank you for joining us on this special day!!!

Now I will send you to the next stop on the hop, 
Kathy Jones!  Have fun!!!

See you soon!!!
My Siggy
