Our Daily Bread Designs July blog hop...

Hello everyone! Welcome to our July Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Randi's blog you are in the right place, if not you really want to go back to the Our Daily Bread Design blog and start at the beginning.

Here in the USA, this is a big holiday weekend and we know many are busy with company and family events, so we're going to keep the hop real simple! There are no secret words to collect, no email to send to Grace... just a fun blog hop!

Here is what you have to do to be eligible to win one of the prizes:
  • Hop to each blog, leave a comment on each one.
  • Return to the ODBD blog and leave a comment there telling us that you completed the hop and left everyone comments.
  • If for any reason you cannot leave a comment, please give us the name/s of the designers you were unable to leave comments for... and you'll still be qualified for the drawing.
Here's the fun part! There are THREE prizes of WINNER'S CHOICE ONE FREE SET, but they are hidden on three different designer's blogs! You won't know who has the prizes!

The Blog Hop will run from 8am Eastern on Thursday, July 1 through 8pm Eastern Friday July 2. At that time the three designers with the prizes will randomly select their winner from their commenters. They will check this post to be sure the person they draw has left their comment here, stating that they have completed the hop.... and then they will give me the name and the winners will be announced on Sat. the 3rd here on the ODBD Blog!

Now do you want to see what I have done with the new sets?  Yes well I kept it really simple this month but sometimes simple is good.  Life has been a little busy here with the end of the school year, camp and a death in our family so simple is about all I could manage.  I love this new set Bless this Home.  It was really fun to color and the main image is of a really nice size.  I used markers on this one but I am really looking forward to coloring this image with my colored pencils.

Now head on over to Lorelie's blog to see what loveliness she has created for you!

What I used:
Our Daily Bread Designs Bless this Home
SU soft suede, baja breeze, GP white card stock
Basic Grey Max and Whiskers designer paper
Versafine black
clear embossing powder
markers
American Craft brads
SU soft suede polkadot ribbon
