Happy New Year! Welcome to the ODBD January Release Day Hop!!!


Good Morning!!!  Happy New Year to all of you!  

So glad you are here with us today!  
If you arrived here from my sweet and talented DT sister Chris' blog, then you are on the right path.  If not,  please go to the Our Daily Bread designs blog and begin the hop from there!  If any links are broken along the way, the entire list of designers will be there in the order of the hop.  The hop will last until January 2nd at 8 pm EST.  Kelley is generously offering five prizes of the choice of one set this month!!!!  WooHoo!!!  All you need to do is leave a comment on each designer's blog, then return to the ODBD blog and leave another comment letting us know that you completed the hop, left comments(if you have trouble on one of the blogs just include that info in your comment), and also answer the question that will be on the ODBD blog post!  Have fun!!!

Here is my card!  

Daytime Photo:



Night time Photo


 LOL!  I couldn't decide which photo to use!!!  Anyway, I stamped all of the images onto K & Co designer paper, with Versamark ink and Memento Black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I colored a second butterfly with with one of those tools with the clips on each end and tiny cotton balls (not sure what that's called!) with SU! Regal Rose and Mellow Moss inks.  Then I cut it out with the new butterfly die so I could layer it over the original image.  My new Spellbinders Grand Calibur made things easy for me since I could cut the Spellbinders small oval and scalloped oval, the square and the eyelet square all at the same time!!!  Love it, love it!!!  I twisted and laced pink organdy ribbon through the eyelets and tied the bow adding a snip of lace.  The background layer attached to the Neenah Cream base is the other side of the designer paper and is embossed with one of the folders from the Cuttlebug Preserves Collection.  I sponged almost all the edges with Tim Holtz ink and sprayed the whole thing with Vintage Pink Glimmer Mist.  The pearl on the butterfly was the final touch!  

Ok, now hop on over to Connie's blog to see her amazing creation!!!  

Thank you so much for joining us today!  May your 2011 be full of wonderful blessings!!!
