Welcome to the ODBD December Blog Hop!!!


Good morning sweet friends!!!

We are so happy you are hopping with us today!!!  

If you got here from Chris’ Blog, you are in the right place! 
 If not, you might want to start at the ODBD Blog so you don’t miss anything! 

Here are the details for this month’s hop:

*Hop to each Designer’s Blog and leave a comment.
*Return to the ODBD Blog and tell us you completed the hop, and note any problems.
*There will be 3 prizes of $20.00 Gift Certificates 
and 1 GRANDPRIZE of $75.00 Gift Certificate toward stamps in the ODBD Store!!! 
*You have until 8pm EST Dec 2 to complete the hop, and winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog on Dec. 3.
Now, on to my first card:

 I used the Snowflake Sentiments set for this card!!! 


The chipboard snowflakes are by Tattered Angels and they are lightly sponged with Antique Linen distress ink.  The seam binding bow was made with Becca's Peg Bow Maker.  I cut the sentiment out with a Spellbinders Oval and used the ODBD/Spellbinders Elegant Ovals for the frame!

And here is my next card:


I don't believe it myself but this is actually kind of masculine!  Not the easiest type of card for me to create!!!  LOL!!!  I just love this manger scene set called Away in a Manger!


The manger image is stamped with Vintage photo ink and cut out with a Spellbinders rectangle.  Then I popped it up on a layer made with Spellbinders Labels 23.  I stamped the angel and cut it out with another Spellbinders Oval to attach to the main image.  I added the jute twine and a clear rhinestone to complete the card!

Your next stop is to the blog of
Kathy Roney!

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop!!!
