ODBD NOVEMBER BLOG HOP AND CHALLENGE






Happy November, everyone!!! I've got some exciting news to share!!! There are two chances to win goodies from Our Daily Bread designs! Here's Scoop #1:

This months' DT challenge is for you to make a holiday card with SHIMMER!! There are so many cool ways to add shimmer to any project, whether it be Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Shimmerz, or my new fave......Smooch!!! Kelley has stocked the ODBD store with some AWESOME shimmery designer papers from SEI, with either metallic or glittery designs, plus the Prismatic Metallic Papers !! You have until November 15th, 8 PM EST, to link your project HERE . ODBD stamps are not necessary, but we would love to see them if you've got them!! The random winner will win a $30 dollar credit from the ODBD store!!! Have fun and good luck!!!

Now...here is Scoop #2:

Today is ODBD's New Release Blog Hop, with a chance to win ALL THREE NEW SETS!!! To be eligible to win the stamps, you must visit each of the Design Team member's blogs and play in what I call a "Scripture Scavenger Hunt". Collect a "secret word" from each blog, along with the DT member's name, leave a comment on each blog, return to the ODBD blog and leave a comment that you have completed the hop, then send an email to Grace, our DT coordinator, at gnywening@yahoo.com by 8pm EST on Nov. 3rd with the names and secret words. The random winner will receive all three sets shown here!!! Good luck!!!

So.....if you have hopped here from LORELIE's blog, you are in the right spot to continue. If not, please start at the ODBD BLOG. Your next stop from here is Debi. Just in case there is a missing link in the chain, the next blog after Debi is Becca.

Before you go, you'll need my secret word: He

Now, for my card details:
I have used the Flowerpot Pocket Card Tutorial from Splitcoast...very easy and fun...you'll have to try it! I thought a flower pot would be perfect for the poinsettia image from "Blessed Christmas", especially with this gorgeous copper designer paper from SEI, called "Rosice", and the copper cardstock from the "Prismatic Metallic Paper" line. The poinsettias were embossed with Versamark and Ranger Copper Embossing Powder on watercolor paper, painted with Glimmer Mist, and topped with copper Stickles. The verse from the "Luke 2:11" set was stamped with Stazon Timber Brown over the poinsettia stamped with ODBD Terra Cotta. Both pieces were sprayed with Copper Glimmer Mist when finished.

Thanks for stopping by!! Have fun on the hop!!!! Good luck!!!
