Our Daily Bread Designs January blog hop...

Hello everyone!  Welcome to the January Our Daily Bread Designs new release "Taking a Leap of Faith" blog hop!  If you arrived here from Grace's blog "Th-INK-ing of You" you are in the right place. If you just popped in you really want to go to the Our Daily Bread Designs blog and start the hop at the beginning.  Our hop will run thru January 2nd at 8:00pm so make sure you get through the hop and post on the ODBD blog before then.  Kelley is providing 5 fabulous prizes that are hidden on various blogs through out the hop, so make sure you comment on each one then go back and answer the question "What are your New Years resolutions or steps of faith you plan to take in 2011?" on the ODBD blog.

My card is a good reminder to me.  I need to learn to rely more on faith and spend less time worrying.  I am by nature a planner.  I make lists, I make plans, I set goals and I worry BUT I need to remember who is in control...
Now it is time for you to hop over to Becca's blog Amazing Paper Grace and see what gorgeousness she has created!

What I used:
Our Daily Bread Designs Full of Grace; Faith, Butterfly Corner and matching die
SU confetti, chocolate chip, buckaroo blue
Basic Grey Marjolaine
Versafine Black, Ranger antique linen and brushed corduroy
clear embossing powder
Spellbinders Grand Caliber, Nestabilities large classic ovals, beaded ovals
SU large brads, wide chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon, lace ribbon
Glimmer mist iridescent gold
Copic markers
