Happy 6th Anniversary to Our Daily Bread designs!!!

Happy 6th Anniversary to Our Daily Bread designs!!!  Oh, how the time has flown since I joined Our Daily Bread designs back in 2008!!  I had no idea then about the family I was gaining by being a part of this wonderful company!  Thanks, Kelley, for taking a chance on an unknown stamper......you, Rick, and the entire team has blessed me so much and I am forever grateful!  Mwaaah!!!

Today, the Design Team, Challenge Team, and Alumni Team have joined together for a special blog hop to show off the new Anniversary sets.  Each year for ODBD's anniversary, the "Breadsticks" are each given an opportunity to choose a scripture, quote, or sentiment for a brand new stamp......hop to each of the blogs listed below to see what each of us chose for our new stamps, plus a preview of each stamp set as a whole.  From those of you who leave comments, three will win a $25.00 gift certificate and one will randomly be chosen to win the 2014 Anniversary Bundle....woo hoo!!!  You have until March 18th at 9 pm EDT to complete the hop.  The winner will be announced on the ODBD Blog on March 19th......will it be you?!  :)

For my stamp choice, I chose "Celebrate Life" since it could be used for many different types of cards or projects.  For my samples today, I used my stamp and one other from the Sentiments Collection 3 set shown below:

Our Daily Bread designs Sentiments Collection 3

My first sample also features the Zinnia set, Honeycomb Background, ODBD Custom Circle Ornaments Die Set (balloon dies), and the ODBD Fence Die.  The Zinnias were embossed white on white, then sponged in purple and yellow.  Since balloons are generally round, instead of using the ODBD Custom Zinnia and Leaves Dies, which match the stamps perfectly, I chose to use the ODBD Custom Circle Ornaments Die Set, especially since there is a die in the shape of a balloon valve (what is the correct name for a balloon end anyway?! lol!!)

My second sample features another beautiful stamp from Sentiments Collection 3, plus the new Bee Balm single, the bees from Bee Happy (cut out with the ODBD Custom Zinnia and Leaves Die Set), ODBD's Blooming Garden Collection Designer Paper, and the ODBD Custom Beautiful Borders Die Set.

Thanks so much for helping us to celebrate today!  Hope you enjoy the new sets and all of the gorgeous samples from my Sistah Sticks!

God Bless!

Oh, Angie, I just LOVE your sentiment and how it reflects your love of life and people! You are just so precious, and I LOVE both cards! So amazing that you would see those zinnias as balloons, and then I just love your second card with the wonderful layout and all the sweetness of bees and flowers! Hugs, sweet friend!
