Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs July Release Blog Hop! We’re mindful as we head into Fourth of July that it’s quite fashionable to be patriotic all year round. In fact, what sweeter testimony to our patriotism than to honor those who serve and protect our freedoms. If you feel the same, you’ll love the release this month – you can see them HERE. The second I saw them, I knew that they would come in handy for some cards I want to send off to Operation Write Home. If you are curious you can check them out HERE. In the meantime, if you got here from Angie’s fabulous blog, you are in the right place! If not, you might want to start at the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog and hop from there! If you encounter any broken links – the entire hop list is posted on the ODBD Blog :-)
For the hop particulars be sure to read my entire post, and if you leave a comment here to enter the contest for prizes, please remember that comments entered on my blog may not appear immediately. Please give it several minutes and hit refresh to see your comment. So for my card today, I wanted to create a frame with this anywhere punch. I wanted something other than a square card though, so I played with it. After creating the frame, I left enough room to recess a sentiment. This is a style that I’m sure I’ll be using again :-)
