Oct26SideSpringCard blk

I am excited to announce that Our Daily Bread Designs is a sponsor for the Splitcoaststampers second annual Hope You Can Cling To card drive to benefit those affected by breast cancer. Make sure to check out the Hope You Can Cling To Challenge Forums

There are daily challenges and many prizes given away by the many generous sponsors. You can even win one of the 5 $50 gift certificates to the ODBD store!!
ODBD will be donating a portion of the proceeds from sales of this new stamps set to the American Cancer Society.

To further support this cause, Our Daily Bread designs released a brand new stamp set, "Praying For A Cure" on October 15th. A portion of the proceeds from sales of this new stamp set sold during October will be donated to the American Cancer Society.

This is such a lovely set, Praying for a Cure.
I made a Side Spring Card from this
tutorial on Splitcoast, using Basic Grey Sweet Threads, Fence Border Die, Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Squares, Squares and Ovals, Scor-buddy (perfect for the tutorial!), Zva pearls and Victoria embossing folder.

And the inside

Here is a very quick and simple one.

I used Colorbox Chalk Rouge ink to color my layers and stamp the images. I also used Serve the Lord with it’s matching Crocheted Circle Die…perfect with this set! I also used Spellbinders  Fancy Tags II, Circles and Petite Scallop Circles.

Be sure to see the amazing creations from the rest of the Breadsticks…

Two fabulous cards....viewing the first makes me feel peaceful, like I am sitting in the garden praying. Uplifting and lovely. Second, while simpler is stunning with the lace crochet circle die. TFS

What beautiful and love-filled cards, Dawn. I love how the first card makes me feel like I am sitting in a garden. The fence is wonderful. I love this set. The butterfly is so unique with the ribbon shaped body. I love all of the pearls you used as flourishes on this card. And, how true-- "All things are possible with God!" That includes a cure to cancer!

I was really drawn to the other card, also. I loved that doily shape around the circle of words and the ribbon. I love the color technique you used...so soft...so feminine. The leaves EF is so pretty for a bg, and that butterfly is such a sign of hope. It is also a sign of freedom to me. It could be a freedom from cancer for someone!

He IS Able!

Pretty cards---thank you for sharing them. I had to click and explore just what exactly a "side spring card" might be, as I wasn't familiar with the term. Thanks--Jennifer in Ohio
