Hello, Friends!! I hope today finds you well. With each passing day, the days are getting cooler and it is getting closer and closer to the holiday season.  Wow, how time flys.  I just love this time of year with the slightly cooler but not colder temperatures and the colorful leaves.

Hello, Friends!! I hope this post finds you all well!!  Time continues to fly by and we are in October!! Before we know it, it will be Christmas!!

Speaking of Christmas, ODBD just released many wonderful Christmas stamps and dies!  I am having so much fun making traditional and nontraditional Christmas cards.

Today I would like to share a card I made for the Shining the Light Color Challenge (ODBDSLC279) using non-traditional colors.

ODBD Stamps Used: Joys of the Season

ODBD Dies Used: Merry Christmas BorderHoly NightOvalsPierced OvalsBeautiful BordersPierced RectanglesRectanglesBoho Background

To create this card, I embossed rather than die cut the ODBD Boho Background and then sponged with purple, blue and green ink.

The Holy Night die is cut from black cardstock.  The image panel is framed with a metallic silver and purple cardstock.

Hello, Friends!! Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs October New Release!! You won't want to miss the inspiration from the bread basket using the new release or the chance to win!!  This month there are an abundance of gorgeous stamps and dies!!  Perfect for making both CAS or elaborate cards for Christmas.

My first creation uses the new Joys of the Season stamp set, Merry Christmas Border Die, as well as the previously released Lavish Layers dies, Pierced Circles dies, Rectangles dies, Pierced Rectangles dies, and Circles dies.

The tree images on the image panel were stamped with the stamp set Joys of the Season and embossed with holographic silver embossing powder.  It really sparkles.  The actual cardstock is a royal purple but it looks darker in this picture.

The second card is created using the new Christmas Note image, Merry Christmas Border Die, and Christmas Card Collection 2016 , as well as the previously released Layered Lacey Ovals, Mini Tags die, and Art Deco Die. 

The last card is one I previously shared as a sneak peek using the Holy Night dieMerry Christmas Border Die,  Merry Christmas Border Dieand Christmas Card Collection 2016 , as well as the previously released ODBD circle diePierced Circles dies, Pierced Rectangles, Rectangles dies, and Double Stitched Rectangles .

Hello friends!! I only have a few minutes before running out to work for the day but I wanted to share one of the fabulous new releases that is to come on Saturday!!  You won't want to miss all the fantastic stamps and dies to come!!

Sorry for the brief post but life has been CRAZY for me as of late.  Yikes!

Here is a sample created with the Joys of the Season stamp set, O Holy Night dies and  the Merry Christmas Border die as well as the Christmas Card Collection 2016 from Our Daily Bread Designs.

In addition to the new items to come, the ODBD circle die, Pierced Circles dies, Pierced Rectangles, Rectangles dies, and Double Stitched Rectangles were used.

As we look at the news each day, it just seems that there is disaster after disaster.  Tragedies, homicides, natural disasters, disputes, and the list goes on and on.  So thankful for the Hope I have in God alone!!!

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16

I know where my hope is. Do you?

Have a great day!! Hope to see you for the new release on Saturday!!

Hello Friends!!  I hope this post finds you all well!!  I can't believe how the month of September is flying by.  It already almost the end of the month and the beginning of fall.

With Fall just around the corner, I would like to share a Fall Thank you card I created.  I used the Shining the Light Challenge Dots and/or Dashes challenge (ODBDSLC278). The image and sentiment is from the Season's Change stamp set.  The wheelbarrow was die cut with the Wheelbarrow die and layered on the Fence die. The grass is created with the Grass Lawn die and Grass Hill Die.  The sentiment is die cut with the Layered Lacey Ovals.  The designer paper is using the Ephemera 6x6 Paper Collection.
