Let's have some fun and go on a "hunt" ...a flower hunt that is!












We are celebrating the 4th Anniversary of Our Daily Bread Designs! All this week we have special events going on over on the ODBD Blog, so be sure to check them out! Today we have something that we hope will be pure fun for all! One Dozen of the Bread Sticks have baked up a special game for you! We decided to shower ODBD with a bouquet of flowers, since flowers are one of the traditional gifts for a 4th anniversary. You will be collecting these flowers along the way, and creating a beautiful bouquet for Kelley and all of Our Daily Bread Designs!

We each have created a special card or project using at least one of our own personal ALL TIME FAVORITE ODBD sets. SIX of us will also have a special blog button with a special flower on it! (It will be labeled as a Designer's Flower Hunt Game, and will give the name of a flower.) Look for it in the designer's side bars of their blogs. HINT: I just might be one of the designers who has one... so look carefully! :)

To play the game:


  • Visit each designer listed below
  • Leave a comment
  • Keep a list of each designer who has a special flower blog button. Write down the designer's name and the name of the flower they have.
  • When you have visited all 12, left comments and found the 6 flowers, send an email to Grace at gnywening@yahoo.com. Simply name the 6 designers who had the flowers and the flower they had.
  • Winners will be chosen randomly from all who email me with their list by 9:00pm DST Mar. 15th!
Now on to my project details:

Grace asked us to list our FOUR ALL TIME FAVORITE ODBD sets, and to use at least one on our project today. How can I possibly just choose 4? :D:D

Well.... I was trying hard, but some of you know that I just LOVE ODBD's Scripture Collections and Scripture Series stamps, so I just had to use a few more, not all of the stamps in the sets, but at least one, so please bear with me, alright?


For my project today, I used........

Faith

Scripture Collection 5

Brocade Borders

Fleur De Lis Borders

Scripture Collection 6

Scripture Series I

Scripture Series II

Full of Grace Collection     Faith


I know I went a little overboard, but I believe that with scripture we can encourage so many people. God always has the right words for any occasion and that is one of the main reasons why I LOVE the stamps I chose. I have lots more that  could have picked, but I would have had to list just about ALL of ODBD's stamps and that would have tied you to the computer all day, LOL!!

On to my project! I decided to make a scripture mini album and this is what I came up with. It is all about " F a i t h " in this one have a look
















Yeah, a pretty big project, but I thought it would be awesome to just incorporate all of these scriptures that kind of remind  of the goodness of God. I hope I did not bore you. ;D

Wheeew, thanks for bearing with me, I hope you've enjoyed my "a little different" project for today?!

I have used lots and lots of flowers, afterall this is a flower hunt game, so make sure you will look around and see if I am one of the flower you'll need for your bouquet ;D;D;D

Traci S. said...

Hi Sabrina~

This is truly spectacular! What a work of love. I received a beautiful Scripture book in a special shape to me and I look at it every day. It is one of my very favorite gifts. I love how you embellished each page, yet left the Scripture clearly visible. A book like this is great to help someone memorize Scripture, and store them in their hearts. And, it is such a beautiful piece of art. This is amazing...and so are you!

No, you did not bore me Sabrina :-) In fact, I was pretty inspired by your album and will be looking forward to visiting your blog again. Interestingly, I did a mini album too recently... for a friend recently who was diagnosed with cancer. It's no where as lovely and professional as yours but it was one I enjoyed thoroughly. Keep up your crafting :-)

merrymstamper said...

a Gorgeous collection of scriptures and sentiments! lovely book of encouragement you created :-)

gogogonz said...

Your piece reminds me of a treasure my grandmother kept on her vanity dresser. I would watch he as the sun filtered in, sitting in her slip, reading her piece. She would turn the pages slowly, and remember a time long ago. As kids, we did not touch her book. But I remember how she would take time out of her day to read it. That's what I thought of when I first saw your piece.

Kelley said...

Cheryl said it all! I love the dedication you put into all your projects!
