Our Daily Bread Designs 4th Anniversary Blog Hop!

Happy Saturday!
Today is the Our Daily Bread designs 4th Anniversary Special Design team Edition Release Blog Hop!  (Say that three times fast).  If you arrived here from Our Daily Bread Designs Blog you are in the right place!
If any links are broken along the way, you can always get the entire list of links from the ODBD Blog.
Each year on the anniversary, the Design Team submits a suggestion for the special anniversary sets. (Being released today!). 
My sentiment that I suggested for the anniversary collection has special meaning to me.  My mother used to always say to her grandchildren "You make me happy in my heart".  I think it is such a lovely thought that you could make someone happy in their heart by just being you.  My project shows a picture of my mother with my two older children when they were little along with her words
I framed the image with the lovely bleeding hearts from the From Me to You set. I stamped the sentiment from the new Sentiments Collection.  The images are all stamped using Ranger Black Archival Ink on a 6" x 6" white cardstock square.  The bleeding hearts are colored with watercolor pencils and waterbrush and highlighted with white gel pen.  The background is sponged with scattered straw and antique linen Ranger Distress Dye inks.   The little dragonflies are from the With Heartfelt Sympathy set. The main image is mounted on a navy blue cardstock.
So now, here are the Details of the Anniversary Hop:
  • The Hop will run 8am EDT Mar. 17 until 8pm EDT Mar 18.
  • The winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog on Mar 19.
  • Four  hoppers will win a FREE ANNIVERSARY SET and One blessed hopper will win The Complete Anniversary  Bread Basket Bundle!!!
Here is what you have to do to be qualified to win one of these prizes:
  • Hop to each designer’s blog and leave a comment
  • Return to the Our Daily Bread designs blog and leave a comment telling us that you completed the hop, making note if there were any you could not comment on.
  • Along with your statement that you completed the hop, leave some Anniversary wishes for Kelley and the gang at ODBD! 
Now I will send you to the next stop on the hop the fabulous Lori Ulrich!
Thanks for stopping by!

  11. Suzanne, what a beautiful piece of art you've made for yourself! My mother went home January 14 -- it was so heartbreaking when my dad asked her to stay, begged God for "his" miracle, and then told my mom she could go -- she did -- in his arms -- oh gosh now I'm crying! But I'm going to just CASE the heck out of this for my siblings! Thanks for sharing your mom's beautiful saying.
