Alumni Team "For the Love of Flowers"


We are so glad that you are here to join in on our "For the Love of Flowers" hop!

If you have come here from Our Daily Bread Designs Blog you are in the right place!
Welcome to Our Daily Bread Design's Alumni Team's bi-monthly For the Love Blog Hop. 
 This week the Alumni team along with some of the ODBD designers are featuring a hop for the For the Love of ODBD Flower sets! Check out each link and leave a comment. If you get lost along the way, go to the ODBD Blog for the full link list.
  One of the post is a hop 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 Wednesday, May, 9th at 6 pm.  The winner will be announced May 10th!  Enjoy all the awesome inspiration using For the Love of ODBD Flower sets!
I chose to use ODBD's "Happy Birthday"! It is so versitile it can be used for so many occasions!



This is what I created!



The lovely image was stamped, colored using copics, cut out and framed using Spellbinders "Floral Ovals" then popped up! The background was created using textured dp and CherryLynnDesigns "Fanciful Flourish" and "Tropical Flourish"!

Your next hop stop should be to our lovely talented Kathy's blog!

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

Hope you have a beautiful day!
