ODBD May Day Blog Hop Release!

Hop blk

Hello everyone! Welcome to Our Daily Bread designs May Release Blog Hop! The hop will run from May 1 through Monday, May 3 at 8PM Eastern Time. The winners will be announced on the ODBD blog on Tues. May 4.

We have a special "May Day" blog hop for you this month! For our hop, we are going to collect flowers from each designer to fill our May basket!  If you got here from Angie C's, you are in the right place! If not, you might want to go to the Our Daily Bread designs blog and start from there so you don't miss anyone!
There will be three winners for this hop. Each winner will receive a $15.00 store credit toward stamps at the
Our Daily Bread designs store!

Here is what you need to do to qualify to win:
1. Hop from blog to blog, leaving a comment and collecting the flower that designer is giving away.
2. Return to the ODBD blog and leave a comment that you completed the hop and left comments for each designer. If you were unable to leave a comment for any one, just state their name in this comment and you will still be entered into the drawing. This is meant to be fun, not stressful.
3. Send an email to Grace at gnywening@yahoo.com giving her the names of the designers and the flowers you collected. 
If for any reason you get lost along the way, just return to the
ODBD Blog for the list of names.


Now, here's my card!

Hop Prv3-6I colored For the Graduate with Copics and airbrushed the sky. I love this type of image for a shadowbox card. This is SEI, Claire and Prism cardstock.
(my card is actually a hint to what flower I have *wink*)

Hop Closeup1aI used Marvy Wet Markers and clear embossing powder on the flowers, then I added some "ground cover" with white gel pen.

Hop Marvy Ooooh, I'm lovin' ALL these sets!! Aren't you?!

Ok, from here you will hop to Becca's,
but before you go...

here is the flower I'm giving you: DAISIES

May Blog Hop daisies

Thanks for stopping!

Beautiful card Dawn, love these new stamps. You are all so talented. I only wish that I could afford all the copic markers to my collection. I guess I will just have to start slowly and add a few at a time. They make all the difference in the world. Thanks for sharing and thankyou for the daisies.

Hi Dawn~

I missed the hop, but I LOVE your card. That is great the way it opens. (A shadow box card?)
Your coloring is fantastic as usual...which is way above usual!

I wonder, did you add the little red cardinal on the post?
