Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs 4th Anniversary Special Design Team Edition Release Blog Hop! If you got here from Chris Olsen's incredible blog, you are in the right place! If not, you might want to start at the ODBD Blog so you are sure to not miss anyone! If any links are lost along the way, you can always get the entire list of links from the ODBD Blog as well!
The bread sticks are so excited to be celebrating this special milestone in the life of ODBD! It is such a blessing to work for a company that brings glory to God in every stamp set created, and offers us the tools we need to do the same with every card we create! If you are a long term follower of ODBD, then you know that each year, the Design Team submits a favorite Scripture for the special anniversary sets, and those suggestions have been the sum total of all the "Scripture Collection" stamp sets in the store. This year, the special sets include our favorite Scriptures, but also quotes and sentiments that we feel would be great on cards or projects. I think you will find some of the most encouraging and uplifting words available in stamps in these special anniversary sets!
So, here are the Details of the Anniversary Hop:
- The Hop will run 8am EDT Mar. 17 until 8pm EDT Mar 18.
- The winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog on Mar 19.
- Four hoppers will win a FREE ANNIVERSARY SET and One blessed hopper will win The Complete Anniversary Bread Basket Bundle!!!

- Along with your statement that you completed the hop, leave some Anniversary wishes for Kelley and the gang at ODBD!
I submitted this sentiment to The Sentiment Collection because I feel that the hardest cards I make are the sympathy cards, or the ones for people who are going through severe struggles, whether it be cancer, a terminal illness, a loss of a loved one or even the loss of a job or other important part of our every day lives here on this earth! Sometimes, words just come hard at times like that, and I wanted a sentiment that could be used for ANY loss or painful situation. Directing pained and grieving hearts to God's faithfulness, His promises, and His perfect love is my greatest desire at such times. I know I will use this sentiment often! I hope you find it meaningful as well!
My card base is SU! Kraft, and the designer paper is My Mind's Eye. The sentiment is cut with a Spellbinder's classic oval large, and framed with a SB Lacey oval. I have embossed a Cuttlebug design on the bottom, and added Fanciful Flourishes by Cheery Lynn. I added some hand dyed seam binding and various flowers from my stash, some Martha Stewart punched boughs, and then topped it off with a sweet Cheery Lynn Exotic Butterfly Small.
Now I will send you on to the next stop on the hop... be delighted with Debi's beautiful creation!
Happy Anniversary Kelley and the ODBD Team!
