It’s a Celebration!! Yes, you may be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, but I am also celebrating the One-year Anniversary at Our Daily Bread Designs! It was one year ago today that owner Kelley Holland began her adventure. What a fun adventure it has been and look where we are a year later! Great products and inspirational stamps!

Thanks for stopping in on your way through our first
ODBD Blog Hop. If you didn’t know about the ODBD Blog Hop and landed here by chance, there are goodies for you along the way and it’s important to hit the blogs in the order of the Hop. You’ll want to start out with Dina at Mama Dina’s Stamperia. If you followed me here from Lorelie's My Paper Adventure, then you are in the right place! There is blog candy along the way and even I don’t know where it is, so be sure to start at the beginning of the Hop so you don’t miss it!

For a special grand prize, we are playing “Scripture Scramble!” Each blog has one or two words that you can collect at each stop and put together to make a scripture verse (NIV edition). Once you have collected all the words, send the completed verse, along with the scripture reference by EMAIL to our
DT Coordinator, Judy Rozema, at lidaroseroz@gmail.com.

Correct entries will be put into a hat and the Grand Prize winner will receive a set of their choosing from
Our Daily Bread Designs AND a selection of cards made especially for this celebration by some of the Design Team members. How cool is that?! Entries must be received by MIDNIGHT CST on March 19th.

Here is my Scripture Scramble word: neither

Speaking of scriptures, today is the release of two new scripture sets: Scripture Collection I and Scripture Collection II. Each of the Design Team members chose a verse that is special to them and Kelley made it into special anniversary sets that are available for purchase today!

For my card I am using the CPS107
sketch hosted by Our Daily Bread Designs
. I decided to use some of the new MB Brandywine dp. I love this color. It is so rich and I thought it would look great showcasing my favorite scripture. I chose the verse II Timothy 1:7 because it tells me that God did NOT give me a spirit of FEAR. He gave me a Spirit of Power, of LOVE, and of a Sound Mind. So, if I ever feel fearful, I repeat this scripture because that feeling is NOT from God.

Now, to continue on, next you’ll be visiting Judy at
Joy in a Jar . You will not want to miss what she has to show you!

It is time for It is time for

Flourishes Timeless Tuesday

Challenge(FTTC7)!!!!




This week Cindy Haffner is hosting. She is challenging us to use ribbon. You may think…ribbon? I use ribbon all the time. Of course, you do!!! We all do!!! I mean there are just so many ribbons out there to choose from. There are lace, organdies, ric rac, satin, twill, and grosgrain just to name a few. Then, there are polka dotted, printed, and stitched patterns to be had. And, if that is not enough, many of these come in different widths.

Like I said, there are just so many to choose from. However, you may only use a certain type of ribbon all the time…yet you hoard a boat load of others. It is time to cut those ribbons that bind you….lol!!! Try to venture from your normal comfort zone or try to use ribbon in a different way. Do not fret, though. If you are not feeling awfully adventurous, any card with some ribbon will do!!!! We would love to see what you create either way!!!!

I chose Summer on the Patio set for my card today. When I chose this set at the Flourishes store, I chose it for the assortment of summer beverages, the patio table and chair, and the chandelier. However, once I got the set in my hand, I was amazed at the number of pieces in the set and designs. There are 35 images and sentiments in this set!!!! WOW!!!

I chose this pot of flowers to color for my card today. I added a layer of MB Fernbrae dp. I used a border cuttlebug for the top and adorned it with some halfback pearls. I colored my flowers with some copics and a couple of permanent markers. I added the So Very Thoughtful sentiment from the Many Sentiments set. I venture out and use some pink ribbon. I rarely use pink ribbon.



Do not forget to check out the Flourishes Blog Team's blogs to see what they did with the ribbon challenge!!!
