Our Daily Bread Designs: For the love of Good Stewards Hop


I have some exciting news to share. I've joined the Our Daily Bread Designs Alumni Team. So twice a month I'll be posting a card with the chosen theme for that week. Woo-Hoo!! I love their scripture verses and images that tie in so beautifully, and the team is fabulously creative and just the sweetest ever. So I'm looking forward to this new adventure!! :)

So, without further ado...Welcome to Our Daily Bread Design's Alumni Team's bi-monthly For the Love Blog Hop. This week the Alumni team along with some of the ODBD designers are featuring a hop For the Love of ODBD Good Steward sets! Check out each link and leave a comment. If you get lost along the way, check the ODBD blog for full list of links. One of the post is a hop hot spot and a name will be drawn from that list of comments to win a $15 ODBD store gift certificate. So, all you have to do is hop along and see all the creations and leave a little love! You have until Wednesday, July 4th at 6 pm. Enjoy all the awesome inspiration using For the Love of ODBD Good Steward sets!

If you've arrived here from Silke's blog, you are on the right track. If not, you'll want to start at the beginning so you don't miss anything. So, head on over to Betty's blog.

So, now for my take on this week's theme.



I have a friend whose son has recently joined the military and could really use some encouragement from home right now. The set Not Forgotten has the most awesome verses that are beautifully fonted. And it also includes this fabulous image. To make it rustic, befitting a military guy, I did a lot of ink and paper distressing and added a couple of aged stars and thick twine.

That's it for me today. Next blog stop: Sabrina

This card is amazing. I really would like to get this stamp set. My niece just completed Air Force boot camp and tech school & will soon be heading off to her first base & possible deployment.
