December Our Daily Bread Designs new release blog hop...

Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs December new release blog hop! If you got here from Grace's blog, you are in the right place! If not, you should start at the ODBD blog so you don’t miss a thing! There are lots of goodies up for grabs this month…. so be sure to follow the rules listed on the ODBD blog to qualify to win one of the prizes!


I was really thrill to see the new releases for this month, especially this verse stamp.  I am an avid reader, in my free time, and have been since I was a little girl.  One of my all time favorite authors is Laura Ingalls Wilder.  I spent many a day as a girl curled up with one of her books so I just had to make my first card of the month using this quote from the Simple Things stamp set.  Once again I have chosen to go simple for my card.  Just the verse and some wonder Basic Grey and BoBunny designer papers

Now make sure you head on over to visit Dawn's blog and see what loveliness she has to share with you.
What I used:
SU bashful blue and early espresso
Versafine black, Ranger antique linen
SU ribbon
Spellbinders and Grand Calibur

In our church we have a ministery called the Shawl Sisters. A group of very talented women knit and crochet lap blankets and shawls for the shut-ins in our church..or for anyone that is in need. I don't knit or crochet but I do make all of the cards that we put into the packages. This card would make such a wonderful one for a man. Thanks so much for sharing your talent.

Beth said...

Debi,
I love cards like yours that are beautiful in their color combinations yet not so complicated that your eye doesn't know what to look at first. However, looking closer at your card I kept finding little details that at first glance I missed like the tone on tone design on the bottom edge of the card. Really pretty card... and of course that bow rocked my socks off, lol!

Mary Jo Stew said...
