July 1 Release Our Daily Bread designs Blog Hop

Hydrangea-Get-Well3

Hello friends of ODBD!  Welcome to the July 1 release blog hop!  If you got here from Sandee's blog, you are in the right place!  If not, you might want to start at the ODBD Blog where you will see the entire list with links just in case any are broken along the way! 

The Hop will run 8am EDT July 1 til 8pm EDT July 2. 
The winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog on July 3.

There will be FOUR great prizes! 
Three Prizes of One Free Set of Choice 
AND
One Grand Prize of the complete Bread Basket Bundle!

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)
 Now on to my project details!
I used the fabulous Hydrangea image to make this card, which is the latest in the Garden Collection.  I stamped with Memento Ink and colored with Copics, then cut out the image.  I drew out my vase, hand cut it and embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder.  I shaded the edges a bit with Copic W-0 and then sponged with Mellow Moss.  The card base is also Mellow Moss, and the dp is Kaisercraft English Rose 6 x 6 pad.  The ribbon is from M's and is laced through Our Daily Bread designs Mini Tags 1 and cut with Spellbinder's Ribbon Tag Trio Three.  I added a bow made on the small Bow Easy and some bling.

Now I know you want to continue on the hop....so from here you should hop to the uber talented and sweetest.... Angie's Blog!  Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!

Just one note... for those who asked for a tutorial on the picnic basket I made for last month's ODBD release.... check back here or on the ODBD Blog on Thurs. the 7th.  I have it ready for you!  Hope you'll enjoy using it for some summer picnic ideas!!!
hugs,
