May 1 Our Daily Bread designs Release Blog Hop




Hello everyone! Welcome to Our Daily Bread designs May Release Blog Hop! The hop will run from May 1 through Monday, May 3 at 8PM Eastern Time. The winners will be announced on the ODBD blog on Tues. May 4.

We have a special "May Day" blog hop for you this month! When I was growing up in New England, on May first, we used to make "May Baskets" for our neighbors and friends,fill them with flowers or other little gifts,and then go hang them on their doorknob, knock or ring the bell, and run and hide until they had found their basket. It was such a fun "giving" tradition! Some still carry on this tradition, and others are trying to revive it. So for our hop, you are going to collect flowers from each designer to fill your May basket! If you got here from Kathy's Blog, you are in the right place! If not, you might want to go to the ODBD Blog and start from there so you don't miss anyone!

There will be three winners for this hop. Each winner will receive a $15.00 store credit toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread designs store!

Here is what you need to do to qualify to win:

1. Hop from blog to blog, leaving a comment and collecting the flower that designer is giving away.

2. Return to the ODBD blog and leave a comment that you completed the hop and left comments for each designer. If you were unable to leave a comment for any one, just state their name in this comment and you will still be entered into the drawing. This is meant to be fun, not stressful.

3, Send me an email at gnywening@yahoo.com giving me the names of the designers and the flowers you collected.

If for any reason you get lost along the way, just return to the ODBD Blog for the list of names.


Now on to my card details:
I have used the May 1 release set, In God's Hands. I love the sentiments in this set! In my photo it is hard to make out the verse, but it reads "I will not forget you! Behold, I have inscribed you on the palms of my hands." Es. 49:11 Isn't that a wonderful thought? When you think of the nail scars on Jesus' hands, picture YOUR name inscribed there! He did that for each one of us! I stamped the hand image with VersaMark, and then the verse over top and embossed it all in Gold EP. I used a simple layout, because I wanted the impact of the verse and image to take center stage, and the cross just reminds us how He inscribed us on the palms of His hands. Love this set!

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs May release: God's Hands

Designer Paper: The Paper Co.
Accessories: Spellbinder's Cross, Sewing Machine, Spellbinder's Label 10, Heat Embossing equipment and gold EF, Brilliance Gold Ink for sponging, CB EF, Ribbon and Gold Half Pearls from my stash

here is the flower I'm giving you: CARNATIONS

Dear Grace~

POWERFUL!! ELEGANT!! BEAUTIFUL!!

Those are three words that I would use to describe this fabulous card. I love those words, and the idea behind them. I have never thought about my name being on His hands. POWERFUL, indeed.

Grace, you seem to always find a way to out-do your self. I can't figure out how! But, you do!


He IS Able,
