ODBD December Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the Our Daily Bread release hop! Today we are showcasing the new releases for December. If you're a regular reader of my blog and just happened upon my section of the hop, you may want to start back at the beginning. Prizes are involved - lots of them!! The ODBD Blog is the place to get started - actually you'll start and end the hop there, and if you should happen to get lost or interrupted in between, you can always go there for a complete list of links in the correct order. If you came to my blog from Sandee's blog, you are doing just fine, and you're almost done!

When you see me playing along, you know that I've had a part in the new release...... this month, these designs are my contributions! I love the peaceful, whimsical feel of these backgrounds, the vintage feel of the clover image, and the reminders to appreciate and be faithful in the simple things.

Here's my card: I colored the clover image on the upper panel and also the seam binding ribbon with Touch Twin Markers (the colors are listed below). You can find a tutorial for custom coloring seam binding with alcohol markers HERE. I used the border die from the Serve The Lord set to cut the edge of my upper panel.

These are the Touch Twin markers that I used:

To be eligible to win prizes today (SIX prizes of Choice of 1 FREE SET!!! Merry Christmas!!!) here is what you have to do:

* Hop to each blog on the list and leave a comment for each designer
* Return to the ODBD Blog, and tell us you completed the hop, follow any other instructions they have for you there, and let us know if there were any blogs you could not comment on.

I am the last stop on the hop today, so after you leave a comment here, you'll be hopping on to the ODBD blog to leave your final comment! Thanks for visiting me today! If you like my designs, stop by and 'like' dkdesigns on Facebook!

(***I do have my comment moderation turned on because I'm over here on the other side of the world, and I'll be sleeping while you hop... don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away!!)

Thanks for stopping by!

  87. Wow Dina! You are the designer of these gorgeous images? Fabulous job Sweetie! I love these! So many of the designers have used your clover in this hop, but the way you have stamped it like a border at the top is my favorite way I have seen it! It brings the clover to a whole new level. That may sound weird, but it really makes the clover look more elegant and special than everyday clover :) Your card is stunning! Thanks so much for sharing your creative talents with us!
