ODBD 5th Anniversary Release Blog Hop!



Hello everyone!  Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs 5th Anniversary Release Hop!  Each year, Kelley allows each of her design team members to submit a Scripture Verse, a sentiment or a quote, and those submissions are made into the Anniversary sets.  Today's hop will show most of those submissions, and we truly hope you love them as much as we do!

If you got here from Angie's Absolutely Amazing Blog, you are in the right place!  If not, why not start at the ODBD Blog and hop from there?

Here are the details of the hop:

  • Hop will run Mar 16 8:00am EDT to Mar 17 8:00pm EDT 
  • Winners announced Mar 18
  • There will be THREE PRIZES of $25.00 Gift Certificates toward stamps! (must be claimed within 2 weeks)
  • To qualify for one of these prizes, simply hop to each designer, leave a comment and return to the ODBD blog to let us know you finished the hop, if you had any problems along the way, and most of all, leave your congratulations on this big milestone for Kelley and Rick!
Now... on to my card and the verse I submitted:

ODBD Stamps, Scripture Collection 10, designed by Grace Nywening

I submitted Heb. 13:5B.. Never will I leave you, Never will I forsake you.  I always try to think of verses that will be comforting, uplifting, encouraging or in some way say just the right thing to the person I'm sending a card to, and this verse often comes to mind.  I'm so excited to have it in a stamp now for all those times it's needed!

This verse is in Scripture Collection 10, shown below.


 I heat embossed my sentiment with fine detail silver embossing powder.  I cut it out with a Spellbinders Antique Frames & Accents, and matted that on alternating brushed silver and white layers cut with Spellbinders Resplendent rectangles.  On 2 layers I lightly sponged pink ink and I added tiny little pink silk roses from ZVA Creative.   I didn't feel anything else was needed... no bows, no pearls.... just the little flowers surrounding a wonderful verse!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and now I will send you on to our Sweet Sabrina, where I know you will be wowed!

Blessings,
