For the Love  
of  God's Love Hop!



Welcome to Our Daily Bread Design's Alumni Team's bi-monthly For the Love Blog Hop.  This week the Alumni team along with some of the ODBD designers are featuring a hop For the Love of Easter! Check out each link and leave a comment. If you get lost along the way, each stop will have a full list of links.  One of the posts is a hop hot spot and a name will be drawn from that list of comments to win a $15 ODBD store gift certificate.  So, all you have to do is hop along and see all the creations and leave a little love!  You have until Wednesday, March 13th, at 6 pm.   Enjoy all the beautiful designs featuring For the Love of Easter!

If you got here from the wonderfully talented Tosh's blog, you are in the right place. 





For my card I am using ODBD The Lord Has Risen, Grunge Cross single,  and ODBD custom Grunge Cross die.   I stamped the cross using Memento peanut brittle ink.  I die cut using ODBD Custom Grunge Cross die.  I inked the edges and added a tonal gem to the center.  I stamped the scripture from The Lord Has Risen set.  I finished with a seam binding bow topped with a resin flower.





As always thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy the hop!  Next up is the fabulously talented Lisa's blog.

I just wanted to say it was by the Grace of God that this post happened at all.  A couple of weeks ago I could not go live for the Love Hop due to router issues. Wednesday my lap top crashed!  Last weekend my camera refused to keep a charge.    I took this picture with my phone camera.   I apologize for the quality as I had to use my son's laptop for editing.  Again, I thank God for helping me with this post!  I truly hope it is a Blessing to someone!  I kept repeating the scripture!

  4. Hi, Betty - a lovely card. The colors are wonderful, and the black really is striking. The cross image is very pretty. I especially like the left side of your card where you have sewn a small black and white print panel - looks amazing! Pretty card.
