For the Love of ODBD Best Sellers 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 ODBD Best Sellers! 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, January 2nd, at 6 pm.   Enjoy all the beautiful designs featuring For the Love of ODBD Best Sellers!




I have the honor of starting the hop today, and I went very CAS using the Bookmark ~ Trees set with the coordinating Bookmark Dies, along with the set Faith.   The beautifully designed bookmark images do most of the work for you.  I LOVE that!

Our bookkeeper's daughter loves to read, so I thought it would be fun to give her a book with this bookmark included.  I chose the faithful sentiment because I think young ones can get overwhelmed with big ambitions.  We put such huge demands and expectations on our kids at such a young age, that some tasks can seem daunting.  I love this quote by Mother Teresa.

I just stamped the image with Onyx Black Versafine and inked the background using the Ranger Distress Inks Mustard Seed and Ripe Persimmon.  I then added the sentiment from the Faith set, and diecut it using the coordinating Bookmark Die.  Easy Peasy

Here is what I used:





That's all I have for you today.  Next stop on the hop is the super sweet Betty!!
