ODBD's Second Anniversary Celebration Challenge Day 4


Hello everyone! Welcome to day 4 of the Our Daily Bread designs Second Anniversary Celebration! March 17th is Our Daily Bread design's Second Anniversary! Beginning on Mar. 13th we have been issuing daily challenges with great prizes, and each day we have been giving away blog candy... and our celebration will culminate tomorrow when we have a special blog hop to reveal the VERY Special Edition Anniversary Sets! Today, the challenge is to use your ALL TIME FAVORITE Our Daily Bread designs set! How fun!!! You have until 8:00pm EST to link your creation to the Our Daily Bread designs Blog All Time Favorites Post. Please use Mr Linky to link your creation, and the only stipulation on this challenge is that it must be new work... no back links, and please link the ODBD Challenge in your post. Have fun with it!!!

For my sample, I used my all time favorite set, Sing to the Lord. I also wanted to honor DT sister, Angie Crockett, who was SCS Featured Stamper a couple weeks ago. I did not get to play then, so I chose one of her absolutely fantastic cards to case today. Angie... thanks for the inspiration!!!

My base is Papertrey Dark Chocolate, then Pink Bazzill, and the dp is Memory Box. I stamped the image with Memento and colored with Copics. I stamped several of the flower images and cut them all out. The sentiment is stamped in Chocolate Chip and cut with SB Classic Ovals and Scalloped Classic Oval. The ribbon is May Arts, and on them I added three images I stamped on Poly Shrink and cut with my scalloped circles by SU! and then baked in my toaster oven. So fun!!! I used a MS Lattice Edge Punch tucked up under the ribbon to finish it off.

So that's my favorite ODBD set (or at lease ONE of them)... what's yours??? I hope you'll play along and remember to link your card to the ODBD Blog post by 8pm EST tonight for a chance to win a FREE STAMP SET from the ODBD Store!!! The Winner will be announced tomorrow when the blog hop is posted!!!

Once again, today we are hiding some blog candy along the way, and in order to win it you must have left a comment and you will not know which blogs have the candy, so please be sure to visit all my DT sisters linked below to be inspired by their creations, and leave a comment for a chance to win the candy. The blog owners who have the candy will select the winner tonight and announce it tomorrow on their blogs, so be sure to check back to see if you won!  So, IF I have candy today... you will see it here tomorrow along with the name of a winner drawn from those who comment today!   If you miss that... on Mar. 19th I will be announcing ALL the WINNERS of our special week of celebration... the challenge winners, the blog candy winners, and of course, the winners of our special blog hop when we will reveal the new Special Edition Anniversary Sets... and that hop is tomorrow!!! Start at the ODBD Blog and hop from there! The prizes are great and you do NOT want to miss this opportunity!!!

Now...here are the links for the Design Team and Challenge Team who played in the All Time Favorites Challenge, and don't forget about the hidden blog candy!
I hope to see your creation tonight... and I hope I'll see you tomorrow for the Big Anniversary Hop!

Dear Grace,

This is such a beautiful use of this stamp! I love the soft colors, and how it looks so beautiful for spring. I can not remember if the flowers and branches were part of the stamp set, they look wonderful on your card. The first thing I noticed was your "medallions" on the bottomof the card. I was trying to figure if they were dried flowers that came in some form of
acetate covering...no, you stepped up to the challenge with your toaster and shrink wrap! You go Girl! No Challenge to Big for Grace!

He IS Able,
Traci S.
