ODBD Second Anniversary Special Edition Release Blog Hop

Hello everyone!  The big day is finally here!!!  Today is the Second Anniversary of Our Daily Bread designs!  We've been celebrating for the last 5 days with daily challenges, prizes, blog candy and lots of fun!  If you came here from Chris' Blog, you are in the right place!  If not you might want to start at the ODBD Blog and hop in the order given there so you can collect the secret letters in order!

Today, Kelley is releasing Four new and truly wonderful Special Edition sets! They are near and dear to our hearts, because each of us on the Design Team submitted one of our favorite Scripture verses that we would like to put on a card, and those Scripture Verses are two of the sets being released today. If that wasn't exciting enough... she also created two sets of gorgeous borders that fit the Scriptures! If you want that special touch to present your sentiments in... these borders are it!

Today's Blog Hop is special because it allows each of the Design Team members to make the first card with their own favorite Scripture! We hope you will truly enjoy the hop... and of course it wouldn't be a Blog Hop without prizes! Today, Kelley is going to give 3 Prizes of your choice of one of these new Anniversary sets! 

My card uses Phil. 4:6, the verse I submitted.  "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God".  There wasn't really room for the next verse, but vs. 7 goes on to say "And the peace of God,which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."  What a comfort these verses are to me! I can think of so many times that these are just the right words for a card I want to send!  I hope you are blessed by them as well!

My Card details:
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs Scripture Collection 4, ODBD Vine Borders
Verse and border are stamped with VersaMark and embossed with Ranger Gold EP on Papertrey Vintage Cream CS.  I cut out the verse and mounted on Legacy Designer Paper by Design Originals. Ran cream cs through to emboss with Cuttlebug ef, rubbed with VersaMark and brushed with gold Perfect Pearls, then sprayed with Tattered Angels Iredescent Gold Glimmer Mist.
Accessories: Gold thread and sewing machine, Prima Flowers, Cross Charm, May Arts sheer ribbon, Gold wire

Now let me encourage you to continue on the hop!
Here is what you have to do to qualify for the prizes:
  • Hop from first to last, and collect the secret LETTER each designer will have.
  • Leave a comment for the designer on their blog.
  • Return  to the ODBD blog, leaving a comment to tell us that you visited all the blogs.
  • Email me at: gnywening@yahoo.com, giving me the secret message the letters spell.

You have until 8:00 PM EST on Mar 18th to complete the hop and email me the message. The winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog on Mar. 19th!
From here you need to go visit Debi!
My secret letter is:  Y
 Blog Candy Update!
If you've been playing with us all week you know that every day, certain of our team members were giving away blog candy. It remained hidden on the day it was awarded, but on the next day, the blog owners who had the candy revealed it and their winner. Well... yesterday, I had some hidden blog candy! Last night I randomly chose a winner from those who visited and commented on my blog yesterday, and the winner is:


#39 is Lori!
Congratulations Lori!  Please contact me (email me from the link in my side bar) so I can get your details and send you your candy! 
For this candy I am giving away the box I made for the March 1 blog hop, and it will be filled full of fun little stamping goodies!  I hope you enjoy it!!!

Have a blessed day and enjoy the hop!!!

Dearest Grace,

What a fabulous choice of scripture. This verse must be imprinted on my heart, I have read it and prayed it so many times!

I think these sets are fabulous! And, I am so happy to get to know everyone's favorite scripture.

I love your card. It is so elegant. The blues are just beautiful. I love how you embossed the Verse, and one of the backgrounlayers as well. The charm of the cross in the center is of course a wonderful addition.
It looks like it belongs right there, imo.

That beautiful sheer bow, and your
incredible flower arrangements look so precious. I love this entire card, Grace. Thank you for sharing it with us.

He IS Able,
Traci S.
