Alumni For the Love of ODBD Custom Dies Hop!

Happy Thursday Everyone!

ODBD For the Love of Custom Dies Blog Hop!

Welcome to Our Daily Bread Design's  first Alumni Team bi-monthly For the Love  Blog Hop.

  This week the Alumni team along with some of the ODBD designer's are featuring for the Love of ODBD Custom Dies! Check out each link and leave a comment. If you get lost along the way, head to the ODBD blog for a full link list.  One of the post is a hot spot and a name will be drawn from that list of comments to win a $15 ODBD store gift certificate.

  So, all you have to do is hop along and see all the creations and leave a little love! 

 You have until February 1st at 6 pm.

  Winner will be announced February 2nd!  So, get hopping and enjoy all the inspiration using for the Love of ODBD Custom Dies!

Here is my creation!

I chose to use ODBD's "Simple Things" and ODBD's Custom "Clover Die"! The custom die makes it easy peasy to cut out the lovely clover! For the background I started with a piece of white c/s and stamped the Clover image several times. I then colored the blossoms only and  embossed those using a versamark pen and clear E/P. I then brayered using certainly celery and  added shading to the clover leaves using copic markers. The framing of the sentiment was done using Spellbinder's Circle Nesties!

Your next stop should be our talented Kathy's Blog!

We hope you enjoy the hop!

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to hug your loved ones!

Hope your day is beautiful! Hugs!

Happy Monday Everyone!

I'm still marveling at this beautiful weather we are having! We are still having highs in the 50's! January in KY. that is unheard of! Yep, we will take all we can get! I know the cold "stuff" is coming!

My little cutie patootie great grandson was here again this past friday! He just melts my heart right down!

I have a challenge card to share with you today!

This is for two challenges over on Splitcoaststampers!
Jen's CAS152  and Judy's TLC359 !

The background stripes of D/P were glued together then cut and arranged in the Bargello pattern! The decorative swirl was done using CherryLynnDesigns Fanciful Flourish. The tiny buds were done using a M/S Punch! I used a Spellbinders tag punch to stamp the SU sentiment.

Joan Ervin has a fabulous tutorial!

Happy Tuesday everyone!

I am getting a late start today! Ummmm this evening! My house guest left this morning, then I had an appt. and then sweet hubby decided we needed to take down the decorations! He actually did most of it! He is a sweetheart.

We had a beautiful Christmas with friends and family! This little guy stole the show! My little great grandson! Gasp, am I old enough to have a great grandson! lol!

He really is a precious baby! Such a happy little one! He is much loved!

Now on to my card!

This is for two challenges over on Splitcoaststampers!

Cindy (mothermarks)  Tuesday Teapot Challenge and Betty's Color Challenge!

I started by embossing using the lovely Sizzix E/F. I then added flowers created by using a M/S Punch. The vine at the bottom was done using CherryLynn Designs Fanciful Flourish! The Sentiment is from ODBD's Garden Tag Set!

I will be back this week with Blog Candy! I have never done this before and really dont know how to go about it! If anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear your comments!
