Our Daily Bread 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop, & Cutttlebug Challenge Blogspot's Be Inspired #75

Hello & HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY EVERYONE!! Don't forget your *Green* colors Today! :)

note: This post was delayed due to technical difficulties, so wont you please accept my sincerest of apologies up-front? :) Now, if you are here for the ODBD bloghop, and have arrived here from Patter's Blog, then you are in the right place!! If not, please return to the ODBD blog for the list of Bloggers to follow in the correct order. :)

The big day is finally here marking ODBD's 2nd Year Anniversary! WOW!! Kelley has come a long way and so we're celebrating that success in a big way with an ANNIVERSARY STAMP LINE REVEAL on this Blog Hop. Our Design Team and Challenge Team MEMBERS have all worked hard to create something wonderfully inspiring for this great occasion. Click here to see the 4 new FABULOUS Stamp sets of Scriptures and Borders that are being revealed today in honor of ODBDs' Anniversary. But wait, along with this fab reveal, the HOP has equally FABULOUS prizes that Kelley is generously giving away to 3 winners.

This is what you need to do to qualify for these Fabulous prizes:
1. Hop from first to last, and collect the secret LETTER each designer will have AND Leave a comment for the designer's blogs.
2. Return to ODBD blog, leave another comment saying you visited all the blogs.
3. Email Grace at: gnywening@yahoo.com, with the secret message from bloghop letters.
4. You have until 8:00 PM EST on Mar 18th to complete the hop & email the message.
5. Have lots of fun Hopping & getting inspired!! :)

*Note* If for some crazy reason you arent able to get on a blog, or find the following posting for this bloghop, simply return to it shortly thereafter as sometimes there may be temporary technical issues!:) And I know that first hand as I had serious Internet accessing/freezing-up troubles this AM.

OK, on to my creation;
I really wanted to showcase as many of these new wonderful Scripture Stamps as possible. So I did that by making Little Beaded Spring Gift Bags & using these Scriptures & Vine borders as their tags. Not only are these gift bags showcasing ODBD's new sets, but this project is also doing double-duty for today's Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot's **Be Inspired #75 ~ to create Spring Projects while incorporating flowers & Cuttlebug folders**. My flowers are only visible all in the dry embossed CB panels. :) I had actually planned on adding Prima flowers to the GiftBags, but decided that the bulk might take away from all the beautiful Scriptures, so I used Pearls & Rhinestones instead. :)







These are for special little RAKS I have planned. What do you think?

Gift Bag RECIPE:
STAMPS: Our Daily Bread Designs, ODBD Scriptures 3 & 4, and Vine Borders
PAPER: Various Colored Textured CS
INK:Black StazOn
ACCESSORIES: Cuttlebug Folders, Beaded Trims, Silver Cording, Rhinestones, Pearls, Tissue Papers, Cross/Crucifix Silver Charms
TECHNIQUE: Dry Embossing, Scoring

Now that you've read all the BLOGHOP particulars, my special LETTER is: *B*. Your next stop from here is Natalie!

Thanks so much for Looking & Good Luck! :)
America

Oh My! Wow, America, I could not wait to get to your name on the blog hop. (But I did.) You always WOW me with your creations. You have done so today as well. They are all so beautiful...I love the colors, and the beads and rhinestones...these are just magnificent. What a great idea.

I may try this, with your permission, at Christmas time, when the children are ripping through gifts, but need to stop and pause to read the "To and From" tag...and thank the person...on command! This way they will pause long enough to read the tag with the scripture From let's say Luke 2. And, everyone else will hear it, too.

You are incredible!

He IS Able,
Traci S.
