I am so excited to share with you the Bible Verse I chose that is part of the ODBD's 3rd Anniversary Design Team Stamp Set. "Scripture Collection 6"!

Do not let your hearts be troubled
Trust in the Lord
John 14:1

 I try to give all my worries and  burdens to the Lord and always trust in Him!


The Our Daily Bread Design's newly released "Fancy Lables" was stamped  cut out and embossed using Spellbinder's Lables 17. I then stamped the Scripture from ODBD's newly released "Scripture Collection 6" inside the frame.  I  think the "Fancy Lable" frames the scripture so beautifully. There are three different "Fancy Lables" in one set. The flower was done using McGill and M/S punches. D/P is by K&Co. 

Before you HOP to the next blog, I would like you to know we do have One more exciting way you can win during this SPECIAL ANNIVERSARY Celebration!

Simply read and follow the rules and submit the verse you would most like to see on a card. If your verse is selected you will receive the set free and you will be invited to be a guest designer for the release of these new stamps when they are ready by sending a photo of your card to Kelley to post on the ODBD Blog.

The verse says everything especially when you think of everything that is happening in the world at the moment. It really tests faith when you see so much distress.
