May 1 Release Blog Hop



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 here on the ODBD blog on Tues. May 4.


We have a special "May Day" blog hop for you this month! When I was growing up in New England, on May first, we used to make "May Baskets" for our neighbors and friends,fill them with flowers or other little gifts,and then go hang them on their doorknob, knock or ring the bell, and run and hide until they had found their basket. It was such a fun "giving" tradition! Some still carry on this tradition, and others are trying to revive it. As card makers, we love to give to people, right? So for our hop, we are going to give you flowers to collect from each designer to fill your May basket!


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. Keep a list of designer names so you can just fill in the flower name beside their names.


2. Return to the ODBD blog and leave a comment on this post 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 me an email at gnywening@yahoo.com giving me the names of the designers and the flowers you collected from each one.


Each designer will have a link to the person before them and the person after them, but if for any reason you get lost along the way, just come back here for the names.


Now.. here is your basket... go have some fun collecting flowers to put in it!



Here is the order for this hop.
