Our Daily Bread designs' October New Release Blog Hop!


Happy October, everyone!!! Welcome to the New Release Blog Hop for Our Daily Bread designs! To keep my post short, I have not included pics of all of the new sets, but please take a quick peek here at the New Release post on the ODBD blog. One of the new sets has been dedicated to one of our very own "Breadsticks", Randi Barrett, so please take a moment and check out the post.

I have used the new "Wood Background" stamp plus the 3rd set in the "Full of Grace" collection, called "Pray". I thought that these two together would make a great guy card, along with the May Arts Twill ribbon, Basic Grey "Capella" designer paper, and Basic Grey black brads, plus some Ranger Antique Linen and Weathered Wood distress inks! For the layout of this card, I have used the Splitcoast Sketch #300.

Before I get to the blog hop, I would love to make a very exciting announcement! For the next two months, my dear friend and Christian Paper Crafts DT sister, Marcelle Schauer, will be a Guest Designer.....or should I say a "Guest Breadstick"?! Congrats, Marcelle! I'm so happy to be working with you here at ODBD!!!!!

Now, on to the hop! If you have hopped here from Sandee's blog, you are right where you want to be. If you stopped here by chance, please head over to the Our Daily Bread designs blog and start at the beginning....we sure wouldn't want you to miss out on winning some prizes! Leave a comment on all of the Design Team gals' blogs, including Dina Kowal, who is our special guest for the hop! When you are finished, go back to the ODBD blog and answer the question there in your comment. Kelley has generously donated two free stamps sets, PLUS one lucky winner will be blessed with the OCTOBER BUNDLE!!!!! You have until 8 pm EST on October 2nd to complete the hop. Winners will be announced on the ODBD blog on Sunday, October 3rd. Good luck!!

Your next stop is Dawn's blog. Oh wow, wait until you see the eye candy she has baked up for you!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a very blessed weekend!!!

Hi Angie~

For some reason this is showing in black and white. I can tell by the layout however that it is gorgeous! How could it not be with the wood background, and that wonderful quote?! Isn't that so true. He knows our prayers and our greatest hopes before we even settle down to pray! He also knows what is best for us...He loves us so much! Thank you for the awesome reminders this card brings out!

With you designing this card, I have no doubt that the colors would be wonderful, too.

Thank you for sharing!

Remember~
He IS Able,
