Good morning everyone!

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
We had twelve family and friends for Christmas dinner. We have a new baby in the family so that made it even more special.

It is time for ODBD Stamping In Time Challenge(SNTODBD25)! The assignment is Our Daily Bread Designs stamps. Chrissy Dickinson is our challenge host this rotation. Chrissy is challenging us to "Ring in the New!" The theme can be interpreted in many ways, such stuff, new year, new baby, new home! Or, the focus is can be on ring and think circular items. Ring can also be about music. All forms of celebration ideas like Birthday, Anniversay, etc. are there. Lots of possibilities. We look forward to seeing what you create using ODBD stamps!

Please see ODBD's Blog  for all the details!

Since it is almost the new year, I chose to use new beginnings as my theme. My card could be used as a wedding , anniversary or just a reminder of how we should love one another. I think I need to read this scripture everyday as a reminder that love is:

patient, kind, it does not envy, or boast, it is not rude, it is not self-seeking or easily angered, love protects, always trusts, always hopes,

After stamping the scripture I stippled using blush blossom and really rust. A Tim Holtz die cut was used for the added swirls. The background panel was scored using a Scor-Pal and then paper pierced. Ribbon, beads and tiny rose buds were added to the main panel!

Please stop by to see what the talented ODBD team created:

We hope you will play along with us!
Thanks for stopping by! Hugs!

Fran, this is gorgeous! The color is very striking and your pearls with tiny roses, scoring detailing, loopy bow, and flourishes make it worthy of a frame! Lovely card!
