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. Answer the question on the ODBD blog in your comment on the ODBD blog (not all the designers blogs).
The sets this month are amazing!  My parents gave me my first sewing machine this last Christmas and I am still practicing, but just on paper!  Can you see the sewing along the edges of my card?  I used three of the new sets for this ensemble.  Spool and Tape, Sew Special and Sewn with Love.  I colored the spool and tape with copic markers and cut it out.  There is a matching die for this set that will make cutting this out so easy but I didn't have mine at the time so I used scissors and an x-acto knife.  I stamped the sentiment and cut out the Spellbinders Circle, and Pinking Circle to layer over the Doily from Cheery Lynn Designs.   Cheery Lynn products will be in the ODBD store very soon!!


The background designer paper and the doily are embossed with the Vintage Border embossing plate.  I used Tim Holtz Antique Linen ink to rub on the embossed areas and the stitching to highlight the texture.  I added lots of buttons and snips of lace and pearls.  I made the lace bow with my Bow Easy tool.  And then I sprayed it with Marshmallow Glimmer Mist to finish the card!


To complete this little ensemble, I made a little Tart Tin Pin Keep!  I painted the antique tart tin with antique white paint, and then dry brushed a little blue over that.  After that dried, I used another dry brush to add some brown ink to dirty it up a little!  To make the pin cushion, I cut a piece from an old winter scarf, gathered the edges with thread and filled it with poly-fil, and sewed the edges together.  I then sewed the button down through the center.  I used Beacon 3-in-1 glue to adhere this down inside the tin.  I sprayed some Suede Glimmer Mist to dirty up the scarf a little.  I added a little Spellbinders tag that is stamped with a partial sentiment from the Sew Special set, keeping it in place with vintage lace and a pretty straight pin!

Your next stop on today's hop
is the wonderfully talented and sweet Marie!

I really appreciate your visit with me today and hope that you like my little ensemble!  
Enjoy the rest of the hop and have a wonderful week!!!

My Siggy
