Our Daily Bread designs "For the Love Of Winged Things" Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, everyone! Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs "For The Love Of...." Blog Hop! Twice a month, our fabulous Alumni Team hosts a brand new hop with a fun theme.....this time around it's "For the love of Winged Things"!  Many of ODBD's sets with "winged things", such as birds, butterflies, and dragonflies,  are being featured during the hop today.....hop to visit each participating designer, leave a comment, then head to the ODBD blog to let us know you have finished. You have until Wednesday, June 20th at 6pm EDT, to complete the hop.  One blessed hopper will win a $15.00 gift certificate to the ODBD store!

If you have hopped here from Silke's amazing blog, you are in the right place.  If not, please head over to the ODBD Blog and start at the beginning (or to see the complete hop list and deets).  Enjoy the hop!!


My first sample features "On Eagle's Wings", which goes way back to Our Daily Bread designs' first few months in business. This set is still as powerful as ever....it just shows you how versatile and resilient these stamps are!!


The trees at the bottom of the card are from the Robert Frost quote in Quote Collection 1.....I inked up the trees only with a marker and stamped across the bottom.

Beautiful card! I especially like the second. The red is so striking with the blue background!

Tami B. said...

You did a beautiful job on both of these. (I was thinking about using my On Eagles Wings set just last night for a card, so this is a good prod to go ahead and do it.)

Sherry Kushibab said...

Two truly lovely cards...I can almost feel that eagle flying by as I read that scripture. TFS

Nan G said...

Both cards are beautiful! Really love the eagle and it's verse!

Both the Eagle card and the Cardinal card are gorgeous. I love the piercing on the second card.

Betty Wright said...

WOW! Both are so stunning! I still do not own that eagle set. I really love how you cut it out and popped it up a bit. Beautiful on the kraft! The red cardinal just pops on that blue! Stunning card! Beautifully done, Angie!

kathi17 said...

Wow, that eagle is really beautiful, and I love the way you have him flying over your forest. (I'm not just saying that because this is a blog hop, I really do love it)! The cardinal is just as beautiful. The red and blue look wonderful together, and the subtleness of the birch background is perfect!

Greta said...

I'm speechless! LOVE these cards, Angie! I'd never have thought to use the trees only from the Robert Frost quote--I will be using that idea for sure! Thanks for the inspiration! I'm jealous that you have cardinals--something I look forward to whenever I get to visit family in Indy.

Not one but two gorgeous cards!

Debbie said...

Both cards are absolutely beautiful!

Beth said...

These are gorgeous. I would sure be happy if ODB would come out with some dies that coordinate with some of the older sets (like the eagle). I did get the one that coordinates with the watering can in the birthday set and it is awesome!! Hoping for more like it!

Linda Carlson said...

A couple of my favorite scriptures!

mary b. said...

Very pretty cards. I really like how you did the trees in the 1st card. Of course I love anything with birds love the colors.

Pati said...

Very pretty! That eagle and verse are my favorite stamps. I like how you added the trees to the bottom, very nice! Love the blues and that red cardinal of the second, and that you used the Birch background, very cool effect!

Lynn said...

Fabulous cards! I love the eagle! You did a wonderful job with the trees along the bottom too. TFS!

Ruth Howie said...

Love the bird cards especially the eagle and the fact it reminds me of the bible verse featured.

E. Marie said...

Gorgeous cards!! Your coloring on the eagle with the white hi-lites really makes him stand out. Looks like he could fly right off the card. The red cardinal with the blue background is stunning.

Linda w said...
