ODBD February Release Blog Hop!








Welcome to the February release Blog Hop for Our Daily Bread Designs! If you got here from Dina’s Blog, then you are in the right place! If not, you might want to start at the ODBD Blog and hop from there so you don’t miss anyone!


The Hop will run from 8am eastern Feb. 1 until 8pm Feb. 2. Winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog on Feb. 3rd, along with Sandee’s fabulous Time With Project!
Kelley is giving away SIX prizes this month! FIVE people will win one Single Fish Stamp of their choice, and ONE blessed person will win the FEBRUARY BREAD BASKET BUNDLE!
To be eligable to win, here is what you have to do:
•Hop to each blog on the list and leave a comment for each designer
•Return to the ODBD Blog and tell us you completed the hop, letting us know if there were any blogs you could not comment on
•Answer the question on the ODBD blog… you do not need to answer it on the designer’s blogs… just the ODBD blog


For my card I am using ODBD Stone Fish and He Is Risen stamp sets.  I stamped my fish and cut out the crosses to give you a different way to use this particular fish stamp. 

I also have a few items to show you for the many of you who teach Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, homeschool, have festivals with fun and games, or a mom to small children. 




For my first project using the Stone Fish and the Fish Background, I created a giant spinner.  Spinners can be fun and used for many types of games or even chores.  I used my Spellbinder's Grand Calibur to cut out my Grand Circles and Standard Circles Nestabilities.  The fish is a good size. I layered a couple for weight.  It spins beautifully.












Next, I stamped a bunch of fish and cut them out for Ribbon Fishing.  I am sure many kids would actually enjoy the stamping and cutting out of their own fish for the pond.  All you need is the fish stamp, some ink, tiny brads, ribbon, string, and a magnet.  The longer the ribbon the harder it is to catch the fish.  You can have scriptures listed for looking up on the back of the fish or prizes listed.  Many different ways to use this game. I have included a picture of a caught fish, too.






I have one last game to show you which is great for kids of all ages.  My kids still want me to play this game with them.  This is the memory game.  This one is great for kids learning their colors as well.  The cards are 2 X 4.  The goal is to find the matching pair.  However, with all Three Fish released today you can make the game even more challenging. 


As always, thanks so much for hopping by!  Have a Blessed Day!


Now hop on over to the ODBD Blog to answer the question and to let us know that you have been to all of the designer's blogs and commented so you will be entered for a chance to win one of the six prizes!

    There you go...getting all creative again! What great ideas for games. Even if people don't have young children of their own, they could easily make little game sets for children in the exxtended family, for a church, for a pediatric ward in a hospital.

    You really came up with a wonderful idea! Great going.
