Winners will be chosen by Random from the correct emails that Grace receives by Dec 2nd, at 8 PM EST.


Here are the new sets!!

Peace and Joy




His Gift





I have made a card for each set to show you today!
The first is with the Peace and Joy set.



Aren't these snowflakes just gorgeous?! I stamped the snowflakes on Blush Blossom cardstock with Memento Brown ink and sponged each one with Blush Blossom ink. They are sprayed with Pearl Glimmer Mist and then cut out. To each snowflake I added brown pearls and some Zva pearls. The sentiment is cut out with a spellbinders ribbon tag and attached with SU! ribbon. I made the pretty bow using my little Bow Easy tool! The back ground is embossed with the new Holly Ribbons Cuttlebug folder, sponged around the edges and sprayed with Glimmer Mist too. This is all layered with Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip cardstock and added to a base of Blush Blossom.

And here is my second card made with His Gift!
This beautiful set was designed by former ODBD designer Dina Kowal!



This card evolved so many times! First I colored the image with various copics. But I wasn't satisfied, so then I painted it with Glimmer Mist (Brick and Pearl) and a small paintbrush. Still, I wasn't satisfied with the outcome, so I copic'd and sponged some more! Then I used my craft knife to cut out some of the petals to lift them up with foam tape. I used my Bow Easy again and added some wisps of gold cord. Then I added lots of gold pearls in the center of the poinsettia. I layered this onto Ruby Red, Always Artichoke and a base of Old Olive.

I hope you like my cards today! These new sets are so gorgeous! And I can't wait to see who wins this month's Blog Hop contest! Beginning in January, Our Daily Bread designs will have monthly challenges and that means more chances to win! So stay tuned for that!

Now, please head right on over to Dawn's blog
to see what she has created for you today!

I know you will not be disappointed!
Don't forget to collect all of the words for your chance to win!

My word is:

Thanks for hopping with us today!
Have fun!
