For the Love of ODBD Hop


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 Animals! 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, November 7th at 6 pm.   Enjoy all the beautiful designs featuring For the Love of Animals!

If you've arrived here from Silke's inspiring blog, you're on the right track.


I chose to use the set Father's Day.  I actually took a picture of a moose similar to this image while vacationing in Alaska.  My husband wasn't too happy about it because I was quite close and moose can be more dangerous then bear.  But I was at the base of the steps on a bus and I figured I could back-pedal up stairs faster than he could get to me...right?  *grin*  

Anyway, this set is called Father's Day, but it doesn't have to be limited to only that holiday.  I made this for my husband because I'm going out of town for 4 days and thought I'd leave this card for him.  This set is very versatile.  

That's it for my card.  Next on the hop is the fabulously talented and equally as kind, Grace.

Thanks for visiting!
Happy Stamping!!

Tosh!
Your card is FABULOUS!!!!!!!! THIS is the kind of card my hubby would like too! :) (I keep telling him this would be a SUPER SET to have!) :) This card might ALSO remind him of what you did despite him telling you not to! So, I think I'd add a little note inside telling him you PROMISE TO BEHAVE while away from him! LOL :)SUPER CARD!!!!!!!!!! :)

Hi Tosh,
What a great card for a man! It's so difficult to get it just right for them but this really ticks all the boxes! Lovely vintage feel - love the moose in the stamp label and the retro colours to the fabulous numbered banner - it all looks great with the 'newsy' background papers. Love the little touches - a perfect card! Well done!
