Welcome to the ODBD July Release Blog Hop! We have been having fun playing with these sets and I know you will too! If you arrived here from Sandee’s blog, then you’re in the right place. If not, you may want to jump over to the ODBD Blog and start from there.
Since it’s the Independence Day holiday weekend here in the USA, we’re going to keep the hop real simple! There are no secret words to collect, no email to send to me… just a fun blog hop!
Here’s the fun part! There are THREE prizes of WINNER’S CHOICE ONE FREE SET, but they are hidden on three different designer’s blogs! You won’t know who has the prizes!
For my card, I’m using two of the new sets, Our Daily Bread and The Living Bread. This is one of those cards that hardly resembles the idea I started with this morning. I woke up with a clear picture of the card I wanted. Maybe I’ll get to that one another day since this definitely isn’t it, lol.
The wheat cross was stamped with a combination of lt brown and palm leaf inks then the verse was stamped with evergreen pigment ink. It’s attached to a slightly larger green panel and both have the edges rounded. The punched tan layer has the edges sponged. Remember those hand held ribbon punches? I remembered I have one but it took me a while to find it. When I did, I used it on a leftover strip of the dp and inserted a narrow chocolate satin ribbon through the slits. Just for fun, I twisted the ribbon before attaching it. The final card measures 4.25 x 5.5 (A2).
The Blog Hop will run from 8am Eastern on Thursday, July 1 through 8pm Eastern Friday July 2. At that time the three designers with the prizes will randomly select their winner from their commenters. They will check this post to be sure the person they draw has left their comment here, stating that they have completed the hop…. and then they will give me the name and the winners will be announced on Sat. the 3rd on the ODBD Blog!
The next stop is Randi’s Blog. I know she’ll have something fabulous to share!
Thanks so much for stopping by and good luck!
