Hello and Happy May Day! Welcome to Our Daily Bread designs May Release Blog Hop! The hop will run from May 1 through Monday, May 3 at 8PM Eastern Time. The winners will be announced on the ODBD blog on Tues. May 4.
Since it’s May Day, we thought we’d have a flower gathering hop. Following the tradition of May Day, visit all the designers’ blogs in order and gather the flower from each one to fill our “May Day Basket”. If you arrived here from Debi Southard’s blog, you’re in the right place. If not, you’ll need to go to the ODBD Blog to start from the beginning.
There will be three winners for this hop. Each winner will receive a $15.00 store credit toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread designs store!
Here is what you need to do to qualify to win:
1. Hop from blog to blog, leaving a comment and collecting the flower that designer is giving away.
2. Return to the ODBD blog and leave a comment that you completed the hop and left comments for each designer. If you were unable to leave a comment for any one, just state their name in this comment and you will still be entered into the drawing. This is meant to be fun, not stressful.
3. Send an email to Grace at firstname.lastname@example.org giving her the names of the designers and the flowers you collected.
If for any reason you get lost along the way, just return to the ODBD Blog for the list of names.
The wonderful bridge scene from For the Graduate was stamped onto oatmeal c/s and colored w/ markers. The greeting from As You Graduate was stamped inside an Ironworks Border on a piece of vellum. I added a thin, lt green frame and attached it over the image. I used part of a 1 inch circle punch to cut the corners. The card front was embossed w/ a Sizzix Christmas folder. I put shims all around the edges in order to just emboss the frame and not the Christmas greeting that is in the middle.
The little card holder was inspired by a package of chewing gum. I made a template large enough to hold business cards, gift cards or my idea for this was the Graduation cards that most high school seniors trade. I thought with a double holder, the Grad could put his/her own cards to give to friends in one pocket and put the cards they received in the other. I used an embossing border folder on the flaps before gluing them. The left pic shows the inside when unfolded and the right pic is the unfolded outside.
From here you need to hop on over to Sandee Shanabrough’s Blog.
