Sneak Peek! Sewn with Love, Measured with kindness

Friendship-sewn-with-love

Hello everyone!

Just a quick post tonight to share a sneak peek with you of the Our Daily Bread designs stamps to be released Aug. 1.  OMGoodness!  This month is my most favorite yet of all the releases!!! I'm blown away at all the sets coming out and I love love love every one of them!  Tonight I'm sharing parts of three sets.  Sew Special, Spool & Tape, and Pin Cushion.  I used Bazzill for a base and The Paper Studio for most of my designer paper.  I stamped with Memento Ink and colored with Copics.  I used a cute Cuttlebug edge embossing folder that looks like zig zag stitches and sponged with distress inks.  The lace is a gift from a sweet friend, the crocheted flower was won in a challenge, and the buttons are from my button box.

I cannot wait to show you all the sets and what all the DT have been making with them!!! Please don't miss the Aug 1 Blog Hop beginning at the ODBD Blog!

My sister is here and we are leaving tomorrow for a short trip together but our time is short as she'll be going home Sat. :(  We've had a wonderful time!  I even got her to create a card and I will show it to you one day.... it came out gorgeous!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and for your sweet comments!  They mean so much to me!

I am entering this in the following challenges:
