Our Daily Bread Designs November Release Blog Hop

Hello everyone!  Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs November Release Blog Hop!  If you came here from Debi Southard’s Blog – Debi’s Crazy Life, you are in the right place!  If you happened on my blog but did not start at the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog,  you really should go back and start from there!  The reason is that there are secret words hidden along the hop which you need to collect along with the name of each Designer.  Then you have finished the hop you will return to the ODBD Blog and leave a comment that you have visited all the blogs and a special email address will be given to you so you can email the secret words you found in the correct order.  That’s all you have to do for the chance to win the entire new release this month!  That’s three GREAT new sets that will help you with all your card making needs just in time for Christmas!!!

Our Design Team Challenge this month was to make a Holiday Card and make it Shimmer!  ODBD owner, Kelley Holland, sent us all some GREAT designer papers that have shimmer, PLUS we each got a bottle of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, so these projects shimmer all over the place!!!   For my card I used the gorgeous SEI Tisnov Foiled Paper from the Moravia Collection that Kelley sent along with a luscious bronze piece of Prism Metallic card stock.  My poinsettias were spritzed with Tattered Angels Irrisdescent Gold Glimmer Mist!!  They use new Our Daily Bread Design Sets Blessed Christmas and Luke 2:11.

Card Recipe:
Stamps:  Our Daily Bread Designs – Blessed Christmas, Luke 2:11
Paper:  SEI Moravia, 140 lb Strathmore Watercolor Paper, Prism Metallic Cardstock
Ink:  Versafine Black Onyx and Clear Embossing Powder
Accessories:  Tatted Angels Irridescent Gold Glimmer Mist, Ribbon, Martha Stewart Rings Border Punch

Now from here you need to go visit Deb Saaranen’s Blog – Dream in Color.    Before you go… my secret word is "Christ".  Please note that if you have any problems along the blog, hop over to the ODBD Blog for todays post to see the order of the hop and the list of Design Team Members.
