October Our Daily Bread Designs blog hop...

Good morning all!  Welcome to the October Our Daily Bread Designs blog hop.  

If you arrived here from the wonderfully talented Chris's blog then you are in the right place.  If you just happened to drop in I suggest that you head over to the Our Daily Bread Designs blog and start this hop at the very beginning.  You so don't want to miss anything and you will also find there all the details about this months prizes and how you can be one of the 3 blessed winners of a stamp set or even the grand prize winner of your choice of three sets!  

For my card today I used Christmas Door which just seemed to be crying out to me to add a touch of Vintage Christmas Flower Soft to.  I colored my image with Copic markers and layer it on some lovely My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Christmas designer paper in 6x6.
Now hop on over and visit the lovely Sabrina and check out what she visual treats she has in store for you.

What I used:
SU very vanilla, early espresso, crumb cake
versa fine black and sepia, Ranger vintage linen and brushed corduroy
clear embossing powder, Flower Soft, May Arts ribbon, sponge
Copic markers

This is so pretty. I am interested in making cards like these myself. I found you on Our Daily Bread Blog. I am now following you. I have found some other blogs with these creative ideas and have asked if they would be willing to advise me what is involved. I haven't heard back from anyone yet. I also have a blog http://talesfrommyjournal.blogspot.com so you could check me out. My blog is about my hair jewelry. I hope you will get back to me and stop by my little window on the internet.
