NEWS FLASH!!!

Our Daily Bread designs has a brand new website, and it opens today!


You’re going to love how pretty it is, and how easy it is to maneuver! So have a look, and don’t forget to bookmark the new web store so you go to the right place to order or for inspiration!

For my projects today,
I used the O Christmas Tree set, the Perfect Gift set, and the O Christmas Tree Carol.






I love a pink Christmas card, don't you?  This paper was in my stash and the cover of the pack is long gone.  I believe it was either Martha Stewart or Anna Griffin. I colored the tree with copics and cut it out with the ODBD Spellbinders Custom Elegant Ovals die.  The oval is popped up over a Spellbinders Labels 23 and a strip of Spellbinders Lace border (I can't remember the name and I can't find it in the Spellbinders store).  I made the pretty seam binding bow with Becca's Peg Bow Maker.  The presents were cut out and popped up with foam tape. I added glossy accents to the Christmas ornaments too.

Here is a look at the inside with matching paper border and a sentiment from the same Perfect Gift set.


Here is my second card for the hop today!


The spellbinders Labels 25 makes such a pretty shaped card!  The background is stamped with the carol in Vintage Photo distress ink and the edges are sponged.  The tree is colored with copics, painted with white acrylic paint and then glitzed with stickles!  I added a few silver balls too.  The bow was made with Becca's Peg Bow Maker and the flower was made with the Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms!

Now I will send you on your way….
your next stop is to the amazingly talented Chris!

Thanks you so much for joining us today!!!  See you again soon!
