Blog Hoppin for the ODBD Anniversary!!!

It's time! Time to celebrate and time to HOP!
We're celebrating the One-year Anniversary at Our Daily Bread designs!
One year ago today ODBD owner Kelley Holland began her adventure.
What a fun adventure it has been and look where we are ONE year later! LOTS of inspirational stamps and an ever-growing selection of tools, papers and accessories!
Thanks for stopping on your way through our first Blog Hop. If you didn’t know about our Blog Hop and landed here by chance, there are goodies for you along the way and it’s important to hit the blogs in the order of the Hop. You’ll want to start out with
Dina at Mama Dina’s Stamperia. If you followed me here from Holly's blog, then you are in the right place! There is blog candy along the way and even I don’t know where it is, so be sure to start at the beginning of the Hop so you don’t miss it!
We've got a FUN game for a special grand prize! We are playing “Scripture Scramble!” Each blog has one or two words that you can collect at each stop and put together to make a scripture verse (NIV edition). Once you have collected all the words, send the verse in the correct order, along with the scripture reference by EMAIL to our DT Coordinator, Judy Rozema, at
lidaroseroz@gmail.com. (Please don't leave the answer in your comments.) Correct entries will be put into a hat and the Grand Prize winner will receive a set of their choosing from Our Daily Bread Designs AND (this is very cool) a selection of cards made especially for this celebration by some of the Design Team members including the card in this post from me.
Entries must be received by MIDNIGHT CST this Thursday, March 19th.
Whew.... all of the details out of the way....
Here is my Scripture Scramble word:

FROM
Speaking of scriptures, today is the release of two new scripture sets: Design Team Scripture Collection 1 & 2. Each of the Design Team members chose a verse that is special to them and Kelley made it into 2 special anniversary sets that are available for purchase starting today!
The design team members are using the scriptures they personally chose on their projects today.
Here is the card I made:

The verse I chose was Psalm 138:3. This particular verse is so full of hope. It's one of my favorites. When I'm beginning to think "I can't" all I have to do is remember this scripture and it reminds me where my strength and encouragement comes from. And that I CAN!
I am most likely on my way to Charlotte, NC to pick up my younger son as you read this post. I had so much to do so my card needed to be simple...this is one of my go-to layouts. And in honor of Kelley I used pink and green!
ODBD is now carrying Memory Box 6x6 papers and they are SO lovely! I've used the "Sprout" papers here on my card. The little pink fluff is Flower Soft- ODBD now carries some of the Flower Soft colors!
Now, back to the HOP! Next you'll want to visit
Angie at Quacking Creations. Wait until you see what she has to show you!
Have a GREAT day and LOTS of fun!
~Angel
