ODBD "Flower Hunt Game"


~ Happy Tuesday and welcome to ODBD's Flower Hunt ~

We are celebrating the 4th Anniversary of Our Daily Bread designs! All this week we have special events going on over on the ODBD Blog, so be sure to check them out! Today we have something that we hope will be pure fun for all! One Dozen of the Bread Sticks have baked up a special game for you! We decided to shower ODBD with a bouquet of flowers, since flowers are one of the traditional gifts for a 4th anniversary. You will be collecting these flowers along the way, and creating a beautiful bouquet for Kelley and all of Our Daily Bread designs!

We each have created a special card or project using at least one of our own personal ALL TIME FAVORITE ODBD sets. SIX of us will also have a special blog button with a special flower on it! (It will be labeled as a Designer's Flower Hunt Game, and will give the name of a flower.) Look for it in the designer's side bars of their blogs.

To play the game:
  • Visit each designer listed below
  • Leave a comment
  • Keep a list of each designer who has a special flower blog button. Write down the designer's name and the name of the flower they have.
  • When you have visited all 12, left comments and found the 6 flowers, send an email to Grace at gnywening@yahoo.com. Simply name the 6 designers who had the flowers and the flower they had.
  • Winners will be chosen randomly from all who email me with their list by 9:00pm DST Mar. 15th!
Now on to my project details:

Grace asked us to list our FOUR ALL TIME FAVORITE ODBD sets, and to use at least one on our project today. How can I possibly just choose 4? Well.... if I have to, here are my four favorites:.....................

1.  "Don't Worry"  reminds me that worry doesn't solve anything! We should give our worries up to the Lord and leave them in his hands!
 
2. "Happy Birthday"  has a  watering can of beautiful flowers! Such a beautiful way to send that special someone a Happy Birthday message!

3. "Harvest Blessings" Sunflowers are such happy flowers, they make me smile!

4. "Sing To The Lord" is the very first ODBD set that I purchased. I just love the beautiful bird on the branch of blooms. It also has such wonderful Scriptures!

For my project today, I used........ "Don't Worry"


The lovely flowers, butterfly and sentiment were framed using a Sizzix E/F. The images were colored using copics. Pearls were added to the corners!


Now, I'll send you on your way. Here are the dozen bread sticks in the bread basket today:
