a gift...

Good morning all!  Today is my turn to share on the Our Daily Bread Designs blog.  I decide to share this framed piece that I created for my second son Daniel who will be graduating from high school next month.  Now Daniel is the cause of at least half of my grey hairs, he is a good boy but way, way, way to much like his mother.  He is the child my parent's wished upon me when they threatened me with "a child just like me".  But it looks like we will all survive high school and in the fall he is headed off to college, where he will be playing division 2 lacrosse.

What I used:

Our Daily Bread Designs May blog hop...

Hello everyone and welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs May new release blog hop!  All of us "sticks" in the bread basket are super excited about the new releases and couldn't wait to share them all with you.  I hope you enjoy the hop and new sets just as much as we do.

If you arrived here from Connie's blog then you are in the right place.  If not you really want to pop on over to the Our Daily Bread Designs blog and start at the beginning.  There you will also find all the details about how you can win one of the 5 prizes Kelley is giving away this month.

Now about my card.  Do you ever have a pile of scraps build up on your desk, just waiting for you to put them away?  Well I frequently do and that is what my three cards evolved from.  I was playing around with the wonderful ODBD Tags sets that were designed by our own Lorelie to coordinate with Spellbinder Tag Trio 3 and just started grabbing stuff out of my scrap pile to play with.  The next thing I know I had 3 super simple, super quick cards laid out on my desk.  I thought about fru-fruing them up a bit but decided that they were perfect just the way they were.



Now hop on over and visit Betty's blog to see what loveliness she has in store for you...

What I used:
SU whisper white, very vanilla, crumb cake, soft suede, lovely lilac, pirouette pink, certainly celery
