Sing To The Lord

Hello and happy Monday evening sweet stamping friends. I have a card to share with you all tonight that I've made using the Chickadee Ornament stamp set by Our Daily Bread Designs.  If you have a chance have a look and let me know what you think. To be honest, this card came together so very quickly, that it totally would be a card you could mass produce. Oh, and the best part, it is pretty flat and can be mailed in a regular envelope :D:D

See for yourself


Paper: PTI White, Recollections corrugated card

Stamps:  ODBD Chickadee Ornament

Ink: Memento Rich Coca, Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Broken China

Accessories: Spellbinders Standard Circles Large, Labels 25, Cheery Lynn Designs French Pastry doily die, ZVA Creative pearl flourish, white poinsettia (from Michael's $1.50 bin) white lace, mini half pearl trim

I really like how this one came out. What do you think?

Thanks so much for taking the time to come to visit. I truly appreciate each and every one of you.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving and if you are traveling, be safe!!

The Babe

Hello and happy Thursday stamping friends. I have a tag to share with you all today, but first I would like to say to all of my stamping friends out there. I am sorry I have not been around much. I am still dealing with shoulder pain and have seen my PCM and he has written up another referral to the specialist and I am waiting to hear from my insurance. It looks like that the inflammation I have is still present and I most likely need an MRI and another shot into my shoulder joint. To make a long story short, my time on the computer is very limited and time crafting has to be spread out as too long in the same position is causing a lot of irritation, so please don't give up on me yet!!

Anyhow, here is the tag I created.

The Babe


Paper: Light weight chip board, Recollections Kraft, PTI Vintage Cream, My Minds Eye Lost&Found Christmas

Stamps:  ODBD The Babe

Accessories: Spellbinders Grand Labels 4, Labels 4, Labels 25, Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourish, cross charm, burlap, twine ribbon, muslin strips, poinsettia

So, this is my tag for today. If you have a minute I'd really like to know what you think.

Well, this is it for me for today. Thanks so very much for stopping by to say hello! It is always a joy to my friends visit!

Have a blessed and super creative day!

Our Daily Bread Designs November Release Blog Hop

Hello my friends! Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs November  Release Blog Hop! If you got here from Dawn's   Blog, you are in the right place! If not, you might want to start at the ODBD Blog so you don’t miss anything!

The hop will run from 8am EDT Nov 1 until 8pm EDT Nov 2. Winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog Nov 3 Three hoppers will win their choice of one free set, and 1 blessed hopper will win the entire Nov. Bread Basket Bundle......YAY, how awesome is that?! Simply hop to each stop, leave a comment and return to the ODBD Blog to tell us you completed the hop and let us know if you had any problems along the way! That’s it! Enjoy!!!

This time around I did not make a card, I went with some gift tags and a little gift bag to put them in.

and here is view of the backside where the names can be added.

And here are the stamp sets I've used to make it easier for you to find

Christmas Flourished Verses

and Chickadee Ornament


Paper:  PTI Ripe Avocado, Vintage Cream, Recollections Naughty or Nice DP

Stamps:  ODBD Christmas Flourished Verses and  Chickadee Ornament (I only used the "To: Love:" stamps from that set)

Ink:  VersaFine Onyx Black, Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Aged Mahogany

Accessories: Spellbinders Beaded Circles, Labels 28, Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourish, moss green grosgrain ribbon, clear rhinestone brads, poinsettia flowers from a flower spray I bought at Michael's, red and green dew drops, Dusty Olive seam binding.

So, what do you think? I thought this would make a sweet little gift and the recipients could use it to put on their gifts or gift bags. I did tie the seam binding into a bow just to make it easier to photograph. The seam binding is 14" long and should be long enough to tie unto a handle or some other ribbon and still get a nice size bow at the top.

Well, this is it for my project for this wonderful Hop. From here I will send you off to my German buddy the super talented Silke.

Thanks so much for stopping by today for a visit! I do appreciate you taking the time and leaving me a comment.

Have a blessed day!
