January Our Daily Bread Designs blog hop

Welcome to the First Our Daily Bread designs Blog Hop of 2010!

If you got here from Angella Crockett’s blog Body, Mind, Spirit and Stamps you are in the right place! If not, you might want to go back to the Our Daily Bread designs blog and start the hop from there!

We are kicking off the new year with the release of three new sets, perfect for Baptisms, Confirmation, and New Baby cards! Three blessed hoppers will be chosen randomly to receive One Set of THEIR CHOICE! All you have to do to be eligible to win is complete the hop, leaving comments on each blog and returning to the ODBD Blog, and leaving your answer to the question there by Monday, Jan. 4 at 8:00 PM EST. The question will be posted on the ODBD blog, but here’s a tip.. as you are hopping along, take note of your favorite set and what you like best about them! Did I mention there will be THREE WINNERS?!!

One of the big changes for the New Year, that we are so excited about is that Our Daily Bread designs has accepted a position as a Member Company on Splitcoaststampers! Please visit the ODBD Welcome Forum and leave a comment by January 10! If you do, you will be entered into a drawing to win a $50.00 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store! We have a many things planned including Challenges and a special Prayer Request area! I hope to chat with you over on the ODBD Forum on SCS! Speaking of Challenges, we will be having a weekly challenge! The weekly challenge will be posted on the SCS Forum as well as the ODBD Blog. That means more prizes and awards, and fun for all!!! More on that shortly… stay tuned to the Our Daily Bread designs blog and the SCS Forum for further details. For now… just be sure to be back on Jan 9 when our first Challenge of the New Year will kick off!

OK… now on to my cards...

For my first card I used the Confirmation stamps set. The verse is stamped on vellum and layered over the stamped cross image that I colored using Prismacolor pencils blended with OMS. I used some lovely Sei designer paper and brown satin ribbon tied in a bow.
My second card uses the Noah's Ark stamp set. The main image is also colored with my Prismacolor pencils. On this one I used My Mind's Eye designer paper and the same brown satin ribbon.

From here hop to Julie Warner’s blog The Write Stuff to see what great inspiration she has for you today!

Have fun hopping, and Happy New Year from the Our Daily Bread designs Bread Basket!
