Fantastic blog hop these ladies are so talented. I love fall because of all the changing colors.

Barbara said...

I enjoy the spring. The awakening of new life. The spring flowers, the trees starting to bud and leaf out.

Susan M said...

I have left comments on all the blogs.such beautiful work by all the designers.
My favourite season is Autumn [Fall]as it means the end of a usually very hot summer here where I live on an island in the Mediterranean sea.Sadly we don't experience the beautiful changing of the leaves and it doesn't get much cooler for a while yet.It was so nice to see these stamps and feel refreshed both by the images and verses!

wannabcre8tive said...

A great blog hop and all the cards were beautiful. I left comments on all the blogs.
Fall is my favorite season. I love looking at the all the colored leaves. It looks like God has taken His paint brush and painted a beautiful scene for us.

Wendy said...

I have been to all the designers sites and enjoyed every second of all the eye candy!! Thank you so much for sharing all of your beautiful creations!!

My favorite season is Fall, but for whatever reason, I hardly make any Fall cards or project. I make more projects for winter and spring. I guess I have given myself my own personal challenge. I did just get my latest order from ODBD, and in was Autumn Flower Soft. I guess I should get to using that.

Thanks for a great start to my morning!

Beth Ann said...

The hop was great. Left messages for everyone.
The first season to pop into my head as my favorite was fall. The changing of the leaves to beauiful colors, the coolness in the air, & the wonderful smells that come with Fall. But then I started thinking about the other seasons and have to say they are all my favorite. They all have different reasons they are special.

Sandi Daub said...

Wonderful Blog Hop & some truely stunning work. My favourite season is fall, with it's sense of "new beginnings"

Susan said...

I have completed the blog hop, the talent is astounding! Great work everyone!
My favorite season is autumn, in the Northeast we have such beautiful weather, cool crisp air and the leaves changing. There are so many fun activities to enjoy, apple picking, pumpkin picking, playing in the fallen leaves. Just so much fun!

Judy Covey said...

I left comments on all the blogs that I could. I was unable to leave comments on Connies, Chris's, Sandee's, Dawn's and Marcelle's. What a fun time it was checking out how each person used the new stamps. My favorite season is Spring. I love seeing the new flowers emerge and the leaves start to leaf.

dini said...

How fun - just commented through the whole hop! Fall is my favorite season and I miss not being 'home' at this time of year... Thanks for letting me hang out in the Bread Basket with you all! Hugs all around!

This was a wonderful blog hop!! All of the creations were beautiful.I left comments on all of the posts except for Connie. There was some sort of error there.

My favorite season is fall. I love the colors and the weather. We usually go visit the Northeast to see the changing of the colors. In Texas you don't see this change like you do there.
I really enjoyed this hop and would like to thank everyone for sharing their creations!!

Linda B (NY Card Lady) said...

Totally enjoyed the blog hop. SO inspired!! My favorite season is summer. Love the warmer weather, sunny days and the longer hours of daylight. I live in the Northeast and so summer is a stark contrast to our winter. Summer seems to be so short so I try to savor every day of sunshine and get out and enjoy it.
Loved the blog hop...now I am inspired to GO STAMP!!

Chris said...

My favorite season is Autumn. The reason is, God shows us the beautiful changing of the world around us. I look at the colors and I want to put it all on a card. This is God way for the trees and plants to sleep.

Lorraine said...

wow what a wonderful hop you must have the most talented team ever i loved them all.

My favourite season is definately Autumn as i love it as the trees leaves fall to the ground in such beautiful colours and sitting in front of the gas fire while rain trickles down the windows i think its so cosy xx

Karen W said...

Fabulous hop, I left comments on all and to answer the question. I live in the MW and the only time I like is the fall. No humidity and heat and no snow, LOL I love the fall colors also. The new sets are wonderful as always and I can't wait to get some.

Joan V said...

Autumn is my favorite season. The morning air is crisp, then it warms up during the day and then back to a crisp air at night. The scent of fir trees and leaves are very noticeable this time of year. The scenery changes from green to multicolor yellows, oranges, reds and browns. It's time for a good bowl of warm harvest vegetable soup and fresh bread from the oven. Just a colorful and cozy time of the year.

Janice said...

I love your new design blogs, they are so beautiful and so inspiring, what talented ladies you have chosen!!

Fall is my absolute favorite season, with the changing colors, crunchy leaves, smell of firewood. Each year brings memories of the past & creates memories for the future. It again reveals how much God love us by giving us such vivid portraits of His amazing creation!

marilync said...

Wow!What a great hop. The creativity is amazing. I really love fall for the change in colour and the freshness in the air. There is nothing like swishing through a big pile of leaves to take you back to your youth. Thanks to all the "Breadsticks" for sharing their talents.

Visited and commented at each stop on this inspiring hop. Loved it for so many reasons. My faith continues to be strengthened by all my creative friends and designers. Thank you!
My favorite season would be summer as I love the sun and the outdoors.
But it's hard to ignore fall's beautiful colors and winter's great snowfalls and springs's beautiful bursts of new life. Aren't we lucky?!

Jessica said...

OK lets try that again!

What beautiful creations, by beautiful women! Ilove the stamps! Especially the sentiments. But most of all, I love what all these wonderful women have done with them! Thanks for sharing ladies, and Our Daily Bread Designs. I have finished the hop, and have left comments on each one along the way.
My favorite season... I think it's fall. All the colors are brilliant. They are giving notice that all the trees are going dormant,through winter. Preparing for a lavish and wonderful new spring.

I visited each one and left a comment, believe me I was not dissapponted at all. My favorite season is autumn, I guess because I love the color palet and the crispnes in the air just has an excitement to it.

Yolanda said...

This is my first blog hop! I loved the cards and am inspired to try some of them.

My favorite season is summer because of the longer days, bright sun, beautiful flowers and hot weather.

meemee48 said...

I enjoyed all the wonderful examples of your new sets that the design team created. I love all the inspiration.

Each season has its own merits and beauty, but I think after our hot Texas summers, I always look forward to the beauty and coolness of fall.

Mission complete...with no problems on any of my stops leaving comments. This was my first of many blog hops! I was blown away by all the talent and ideas. Thank you soooo much for your wonderful team!

Forgot the second portion! Love winter because of the serenity, clean feel and smells, and FAMILY! winter is the season that draws the family back.

This was a delightful blog hop. The cards and centerpiece were amazing, unique, and inspiring. I gladly sent a comment to each artist. I love early Fall. Vivid reds and oranges dot the mountains while rich greens still dot the valley. The weather is warm, the flowers are beautiful and the garden is full of rich abundance.

ladybugg61 said...

A lovely hop, made all the more inspiring by the wonderful women who created all the beautiful pieces! Thank you.
With colours as beautiful as can be found in the Fall, how can it NOT be one's favourite? It's definitely No. 1 in my books!

Barbie D. said...

Fantastic blog hop with amazing examples with your beautiful stamps.

My favorite season is autumn because of the beaufiul colors, and the cooling weather.

Marlena M. said...

I finished the hop, thank you for all your hard work!
My favorite season is fall. I loved it even before experiencing it (I grew up in Hawaii). The colors are gorgeous, and the weather is brisk, but not too cold. It always fascinated me. I can remember drawing pictures of roads with trees on either side...in fall colors. Now I am living that dream here in PA. I have learned there is so much more to it...apples, harvest, and pumpkin butter! LOL. :)

Nicole Kendrick said...

Great bloghop! It was my first and I hope to enjoy many many more!
We don't have a lot of 'seasons' per se, in Florida. But, my favorite has always been and always will be, the Fall. I love the colors that God chose to show His beauty, even in death. The leaves are dying and they are beautiful, bless me and enrich my life! Just as our beautiful Lord and Savior, Jesus dies on a tree for me and brought eternal salvation, security, blessing and the ultimate life-enrichment! May you all enjoy this fall and be reminded of the great sacrifice our Lord made for us to be able to enjoy this season!

Anonymous said...

I certainly enjoyed the hop. Fall is my favorite time of the year. I love the crispness of the air, the colors of the leaves, football and it means Christmas is right around the corner.

Bette said...

What beautiful cards/creations the ladies have done. They outdid themselves! Your stamps and dies are must haves too! I have left a comment on each of them. My favorite season is spring. After Iowa's cold, snowy, long winters spring is so welcomed and appreciated. The birds singing outside the windows and the grass turning green and the beautiful colors coming back to life are what I look forward to. Thanks for the trip - it was great!

Becky said...

Gorgeous creations and images.
Spring is my favorite time of the year. I love that winter is almost over and warm weather is a head. I love when flowers begin to bloom throwing out all their wonderful aroma's and the colors are so beautiful this time of year.

My favorite season is Fall. I love the colors, the rustle of the dried leaves and the cool crisp morning air. Thank you for the chance to win this amazing blog candy! Judy A (paw)

Darlene said...

I've just finished the blog hop and enjoyed commenting at each stop along the way. The hop is filled with beauty and wonderful talent. I love the new sets and even though I do love many of your sets, I don't have any yet. That will be changing - I will placing my order very soon :) My favourite season has to be summer. I love being able to spend time outside being active and seeing so many flowers in bloom. That being said,
I must say how much I love the beauty of the colours of autumn too.

Janaria said...

Thanks so much for the blessings. It was so refreshing to visit each of the sites and see the wonderful creations honoring the Lord and His gracious gifts (including His gift of Randi!) Randi's Song is a must have set for me and I will be placing my order soon

As Scripture says, to everything there is a season. . .it is so hard to choose as each has its purpose and its own beauty. .
That said, I love summer. . .the trees have leaves, the flowers are blooming, there is an abundance of locally grown fresh fruits and veggies, there are critters out and about everywhere and the air is filled with the sounds of them, there are more hours of daylight and it's warm.
Thanks and blessings!

maryr917 said...

I completed the blog hop and I just loved seeing all the fab creations from the dt-my fav season is the fall (4th qtr) because I love thanksgiving & christmas-it invokes so many wonderful memories and all the new ones that are created each year

Kelli B said...

Hello- what a beautiful and stunning blog hop. I loved the creativity of the DT. My favorite season is winter. In Hawaii it's sunny all year round, but in the fall and winter it at least gets a little colder and rains (which we desperately need). Thanks for the designs and also the blog hop. I am always amazed at everyone's creativity! God Bless

Auntie Em said...

As always your blog hop was full of more than just cards and art, but inspiration and emotion!
Thank you to all the artists and designers who work so hard and share their talents with everyone! :o)

The autumn season has always been one of my favourite times of the year. Our summer work is done, the winter cold isn't upon us yet and the spring is a sweet promise to come! I enjoy every day of it!!!

Pati said...

Beautiful, Beautiful, fun blog hop, great new releases!! I had fun viewing and commenting on each.

My favorite season, most of the time, is fall, with the coolness and the beautiful colors. But summer in southcentral AK is right up there since it doesn't usually get too warm here and the daylight hours are long, great for camping & hiking & gardening!

sallysbitz said...

This was a fab blog hop, great cards & a centre piece.

My favourite season is SUMMER. I just love watching the wild birds feeding in my garden,the flowers in bloom & I sit in my garden and read and of course soak up the rays Lol, the sun makes everyone smile xx

Rosemary said...

gorgeous new sets! dina's new set is outstanding! my favorite season is Christmas... i just love that time of year. the mean of the season, the decorations, everything!

Betty said...

I truly love these blog hops. they make me want all the stamps, and inspire me to retire to my stamp room and create. the new sets are wonderful as usual and this design team is outstanding. Unashamed to tell you I cried a few tears. I love each season our Lord has created. Each has it's own magical beauty, but Spring is my favorite. I love watching the earth come back to life as the flowers rise from the ground, my hummingbirds return to delight me, and hope springs eternal. I visited each blog I could, and left some love but could not enter Sandee's (hers was my trouble last time) and Dawn's. I tried going from several different directions but no go. Will try again later.

Dani said...

Another fantastic hop! I love all the inspiring examples!

My favorite season is summer. It may be hot but the kids can play and we get a break from school!!

Lillian Child said...

Such a talented group of ladies. I thoroughly enjoyed this blog hop.

My favorite season is fall. I'm actually take next week as vacation just to enjoy my favorite season. Will go to the local apple orchards and then do my fall baking. LOVE this time of year!

Amy Phelps said...

Woo hoo - I did complete the hop, and was amazed at the wonderful cards created. All my comments were left for each artist and to answer your question: my favorite season, is Fall. One, i love the colors (those are also the colors inside my house) plus the fall is new beginings, with school starting, new Bible STudies, it's more of a "start" in a year rather than January. Love it. Thanks for the opportunity to win some of your fabulous goodies! - Amy

I left a comment on each blog this morning...thought I left one here also, don't know what happened to my comment? ODBD DT has amazing talent! I loved all the cards...
My favourite season is FALL! The smells and the colours are some reasons...how about a pumpkin spice Latte? mmmm.

Mickie said...

Completed the hop and it never ceases to amaze me, such beautiful artwork!! The new stamps are fantastic too, especially Randi's song!

My favorite season is spring when everything starts "greening up" and all God's handiwork starts blooming and producing new life.

Pat Jandacek said...

I have been to every stop on the hop and left a message for everyone...a very pleasant pastime. I'm very thankful to be retired and have the time to spend enjoying what others have done and being inspired by it. Thanks for setting up such happenings - also for offering such sweet blog candy! I think my favorite season would have to be Spring - I'm always absolutely floored by the number of greens Mother Nature creates! And it is the season of promise for the future in my mind.

jeaninparadise said...

I hopped to all of the blogs. It is so nice to have Christian stamps and wonderful Christin cards.

I love autumn, because by the time summer has come to an end, I am so ready for the change. Autumn leaves are beautiful.

Anonymous said...

This is my first time participating in a blog hop,but it will not be my last.I have went from one amazing card to another all day,and ended up in tears when I read about Randi,and how the set is named Randi's song.What a amazing story

My favorite time of the year is spring.Cool mornings,with the promise of rebirth in the air.All I can think of is Thank you Dear Lord for tis day

Donna G said...

What Fun! I was able to leave a comment for all of the wonderful designers, and I have truly enjoyed this hop!
It is difficult to pick between Fall and Spring as my favorite season. I love both, and neither of these seasons last very long in the South where I live.

jeanne girl said...

Well that was so fun to do!! I would have to say that spring is my favorite season as there is that wonderful awareness that new life can happen even after a stretch of cold and no growth!! Then there is spring and you see that there was something growing even before we could see it :)

Anonymous said...

I completed the hop. I left comments on each designers blog. My favorite season is Fall. I love the beautiful Fall colors and that little nip in the air. Plus it's fun creating Halloween and Thanksgiving cards.

I love seeing all the creative ideas in so many different people. The Blog Hop was wonderful. It was my first time to do something like this as I left a message on each blog.
I have to say my favorite season is Spring. I love to garden and at the first sign of nice weather I'm out there getting my garden ready. It's my favorite place to meet with God. It's so peaceful.

Kathi Hall said...

I had recently discovered ODBD stamps and check in every day to see what is created - the blog hop was wonderful! Thank you!

I like to say that my favorite season is "family" season - whenever we can all get together. But if I had to choose I love the sun and the ocean and brisk morning walks - spring time would be best! Thank you! Kathi

craftymom205 said...

I have completed the blog hop and enjoyed it. My favorite season is fall. I love the colors and the cool weather.

Pat said...

What a beautiful bounty of cards for October! Thank you all for sharing them with us. My favorite season has got to be spring with the freshness of new grass, spring flowers, new life, fresh air -- and here in AZ it brings the desert to life as well. But then again, after the HOT summer, I'm looking forward to fall (if and when it decides to settle on AZ)!

Candy Meyers said...

I keep changing my favorite season as each one comes along. But probably overall, Christmas is my favorite, as we hear from people we don't other times of the year.

Lin said...

Thank you for this my first ODBD hop! I have visited each blog and left a comment there. LOOOOVE the Randi's song set.
My favorite season is autumn. It's when I first met my husband 40 some years ago. I love the smell of woodsmoke, the crispness of the air at this time of year, the blue skies showing through the brilliant colored leaves, the soups and other comfort foods we can enjoy again, and the sounds of the Canadian geese flying overhead. Thank you so much for the chance to win one of your new releases!

Marie said...

I have completed the blog hop and left a message at each designers site. They did an amazing job and I thorougly enjoyed their creativity.

My favorite season is Spring. I love all the new life spring up and feel so encouraged and renewed.

Thank you for your inspiring stamps

Paula Gale said...

Hi, I completed the hop, enjoying the stunning creations by the extremely talented DT.

My favourite season has to be spring. It is when both my children were born and just reminds me of new beginnings and the promise of things to come. It reminds me of new life with all the trees coming into bud, and many flowers starting to pop up and flower. Living in the UK, the days start to lengthen and the birds begin to sing, and it makes me so happy to be alive and be thankful for everything I have. I can't say my health, after a year of poor health, but I have my family and friends and thats what is important - and spring certainly reminds me of all that.

Thank you for this chance to join in the blog hop and visit some talented ladies along the way.

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

What a beautiful hop this was. So many talented ladies and a beautiful display by all. I have completed this hop. Left comments for each of the designers and the guest designer.
I use to love the Christmas holidays to the max. BUt as I have gotten older, I love the Fall. Such beauty, a peacefullness, no commercializations, Just a true time to be Thankful and enjoy the family, food and all the excitement of Fall.

My favorite season is fall - the colors of the leaves and the cooler weather.

Traci S. said...

Hi~

I really enjoyed the incredible art shown during this amazing hop!
I went to every stop, and left some love. It is my pleasure.

I would say that I love spring. It reminds me of rebirth and freedom. It did even as I was a Jew, the Passover Seder symbolizes these things.

Knowing the Lord, now, I think of how He has called me to have a meaningful and loving relationship with Himself. The King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, the Great Physician! I have been totally re-birthed, and I am free from being under the Law.

I love when the flowers come out, and you can see His mark of love on this world, a flower, a bird singing out to Him, gentle rains washing us clean...as He has. It is a wonderful time.

Remember~
He IS Able!
Traci S.

Sandra said...

I hopped, beautiful art as usual.

My favorite season has to be fall. It is still warm, and dry enough that everything is not all muddy .... most of the time.
I love the colors of the trees changing and the promise of the Christmas season.

Ooh, I LOVE fall! There is just something about the cool, crisp fall air that is intoxicating! And the beautiful colors, and not to mention all yummy baked goods that are commonly baked in the Fall.

Judy P said...

My first hop, it was like a mini vacation!!! I did not leave comments on Chris or Sandees blogs, I couldnt find the place to leave one (maybe I missed it)but all of the cards were so beautiful.
Spring is my favorite season. After the cold winter here (I live in PA) I can't wait for the birds to start singing and the green grass to start popping up and warm weather!!

Sarah said...

The blog hop was full of amazing creations! Well done!

My favorite season? I'm torn between spring and fall. I love the awakening of the spring flowers and the cool crisp fall days with the changing leaves.
I also love looking out the window at freshly fallen snow. I guess I enjoy the changing of the seasons and the wonderful things associated with each of them (other than the humidity in the summer!)

I thoroughly enjoyed your blog hop. I left a message at each of the great designers sites. What beautiful work.

Pat Garvin said...

I have completed the hop. Could not post on the blogs belonging to Connie,Chris, Sandee, Dawn and Marcelle. I love Fall colors and remember when we lived up north going to pick a pumpkin and apples. Camping with the Girl scouts and campfires. Living in the south now and really don't have the seasons but still enjoy making fall cards and coloring leaves.

JaniceAileen said...

Ok, this is my second comment but only because I didn't realize I had to go through the hop first! I just went through and was totally blessed--such beautiful, God glorifying creations!
As I said earlier, Fall is my favorite season. I love the cooler temps and every part of the changing season. :)

Anonymous said...

Wonderful hop, with beautiful stamps and cards to go with them. I visited each site and left comments.
It is hard to say what my favorite season is since God has given us each season to enjoy. I would have to say Fall is my favorite season though. Why? I live in Florida, and the fall gives us relief from the heat.

Fall! Thanksgiving, Bible Study Fellowship resumes and big leaf piles too jump in with the grandkids!

Your blog hop left me inspired and so very thankful for all your Christian witnesses. To Him alone be all glory.

I enjoyed them all and it was a pleasure to comment

Linda Carson said...

Beautiful eye-candy by your design team! My favorite season is spring when all things are made new!

Ratty Hugs said...

I had such a super time enjoying each card on the blog hop. Each member of the DT deserves the props I left.

OOhh, my favorite season...each one has something special to it.
Winter for the need to snuggle with family & enjoy the lovely patterns that the rain & snow create.
Spring for the bright greens & rainbows that make you happy to dig in the mud.
Summer for all the farmers markets & the long drives to enjoy the sun & blue sky.
Fall for all the other seasons that show up now. The late flowers & last of the summer crops, fall produce. The subtle changes of leaves & plants as they get ready for winter. The spicy smell that comes with field burning and feeling that snap in the air that gives the pears & apples their wonderful sweetness. Watching the harvest in the cranberry bogs, knowing that the cranberry festival will be along soon.
I can't pick just one, since each has it's own uniqueness.

Natalie said...

Wonderful inspiration (which is always the case each hop I've been blessed to visit!) The new releases are fabulous.
My favorite season is fall. I love that we have such warm days, it's like a last burst of summer before the rains begin. And the leaves that begin to change colors make such a pretty picture along the roadside.

Anonymous said...

I loved looking at all the lovely creations. I left a comment on all the blogs except Sandee's. Couldn't find a place to do it.
I think I like spring the best as winter is over and summer on the way. Where I live our summer's are shorter so enjoy the warm weather while we have it.glyrac

Favorite season of mine is Autumn and Harvest time.

I visited each designers blog and left a message. A great group of talented designers with inspiring ideas. My favorite season is Spring. The flowers and leaves are waking up from their winter rest. The birds are repairing their nests, and laying & brooding their eggs. Then new little chicks hatch and see their world for the first time. It is a magical time of the year. I love birds especially Ospreys. Starting the end of March I follow an Osprey nest web cam everyday that is located in Scotland -Barbara Jay

What a wonderful BlogHop! I enjoyed the beautiful creations and talent of so many. I was able to leave comments on all participants.
Spring would have to be my favorite season as it follows a dreary winter with hope and beauty.

Davi said...

Wow lots of wonderful creations from all the ladies.
My favorite season is spring. In the desert you start growing in the late fall so by spring the flowers are in all their glory and its beautiful!

Debbie Brackett said...

I completed the blog hop. Left comments at each of the designers' sites. I am really torn between fall and spring. In the fall all of nature is getting ready to go to sleep for the winter and in the spring they all come back to life. It is amazing how God made everything go full circle.

Teri-Ann said...

I would have to say fall is my favorite season - the color, the smells, warms days, cool nights - just the general feel of this season.

Teri-Ann said...

I finished the hop. What amazing cards and talented ladies!! I left comments on all the blogs. I answered the question earlier before I started the hop not realizing I was to post at the end.

Magi said...

What a lovely way to begin the day - beautiful cards, inspiring verses, uplifting song! Thank you for the opportunity to share in all of the creative gifts God has blessed these artists with! My favorite season is autumn! I absolutely love to watch the leaves change color, and drift ever so slowly down from the trees! Then raking them all up in a pile and jumping in them - even at my age! God's Blessings to all of you . . . Hugs, Magi

Jonia said...

What an amazing Design Team you have. The cards and creations were wonderful along with all the new releases. I did leave everyone a comment and thanks for sharing all of this with us.

My favorite season is summer because I do not like to be cold. Our family just loves to spend time at the beach and by the pool. And the beach is a place I can go and talk to the Lord. Fall would be next on my list.
Thanks for a wonderful Blog hop!

Betty said...

One of the best blog hops ever!
Such crativity from beautiful ladies!



A great blog hop and all the cards were beautiful. I left comments on all the blogs.
Fall is my favorite season. I love looking at the all the colored leaves.

I just completed the blog hop and left comments for each of the wonderful designers.

My favorite season is the Fall of the year. Cooler temperatures, crunchy leaves underfoot, the smell of a bonfire, pumpkins (especially pies), hayrides ~ Wonderful!

God has given us so much beauty to enjoy!

Elise said...

Another awesome hop, and after the heart wrenching week I've had, I needed the distraction and the reminder that God is in control, his mercies are new every day, and that He hears our prayers even when we don't know what to say.

My favorite season is spring - great weather, flowers begin to bloom after the cold of winter, but mostly because it's lacrosse season!!

Roberta said...

My favorite season is summer because of the warmth, people all out of hibernation and a sense of relaxation. I've never done this blog hop and just found these stamps. I'm blown away!
I left comments on all and I hope I did it right!

Sandy M said...

I finished my FIRST ever blog hop. Thank you for so many wonderful ideas and inspirations. Your designers are wonderfully talented.

My favorite season is summer. Love the warmth of the sun, picnics, flowers, long days and families having extra time together.

Hi! I completed the blog hop and now I so inspired. I left comments on all 12. Fall is my favorite season. Here in Texas it is so hot in the summer. When the cooler weather arrives, like it did just last week, we all breathe a sigh of relief and say "Praise God!".

What an inspiring group of artists! Each entry was beautiful and very creative!

My favorite seasons are Spring and Fall. The beauty of God's handiwork is so strong in both - maybe to remind us that He is the beginning and the end, but always present. God is an amazing artist,too,isn't He?

My favorite season is the Autumn. Living in the north east brings the cooler weather and the changing leaves. Pumpkins and corn stalks and the chance to give thanks for it all.

Maria said...

This was a fun blog hop with lots of beautiful creations:) The new stamps are beautiful. I like something in all seasons but...maybe autumn is the best. I like the crispness in the air, picking apples and mushrooms, light candles in the evenings, puting on a warm sweater.........

Beth Norman said...

Wow. As always the team did an awesome job. It was a treat to see the guest designers as well.

My favourite season is the fall. Here in Canada temps are colder more than they are hot, and this summer was the hotest in a tremendous amount of years. So happy to have fall here. It gives me a sense of peace and happiness--kind of like Christmas.

Amanda said...

Actually FALL is my favorite time of year!! Even more then Christmas! Fall is so wonderful and beautiful, and smells wonderful both outside and inside our home! I love to bake and make cookies for school, in the fall :) Yum! And I love the jewel colors and my pumpkins! :)

Jenn said...

There were so many wonderful creations on the hop, the new release looks wonderful! I love the fall. Being a farm girl at heart that's when the tractors are out in the fields and the air turns crisp!

Sarah Stainback said...

It was a beautiful hop. Loved all the new designs and the samples. Very talented designers, and I was
glad to see Dina Kowal among them! I visited them all and left a comment. Fall is my favorite time of year
because of the beautiful picture of God's handiwork.

What an outstanding blog hop with each and every contributor showing wonderful creations.

My favorite season is spring..the return of blue skies, and that wonderful yellow orb in the sky awakens the soul to the beauty of all God's creations!

Wonderful blog hop, stopped at them all.
My favorite season is Spring. After a long Winter it is refreshing to see the flowers peek through the soil. The springtime perks me up after a looooong winter. It is amazing how God has orchestrated it all. His timing is perfect, His creation is magnificant.

Donna said...

What a great blog hop... I left comments for everyone but Marcella & Randi. I couldn't post to these two for some reason.... My favorite season is the Fall. I love the cool weather and beautiful colors. It seems to be the time of the year that all of my family can get together and enjoy each others company.

Sheila Sanderson said...

I completed this wonderful blog hop. So many beautiful cards. Left messages for all participants. On looking at Sandees site a second time, I found her comment spot.
My favourite season is Spring because it brings the promise of summer.

Janet S said...

What a fabulous blog hop! There are SO many talented designers. I left comments on all the blogs, but had trouble with Julie's. When I clicked to enter my comment it came back with an error so not sure if my comment is on there or not. I could not get back onto her blog after that. As for my favorite season, I love summer. Living in Michigan with the long winter and usually short cold spring, I am SO happy when summer finally arrives. I would love autumn more if winter weren't right behind it. LOL Thanks for a chance to win some fab prizes, too. :D

Irene said...

I just finished the hop and left my comments for each designer. I am continuously impressed with your stamp sets and the beautiful creations presented. Thanks for organizing these hops!!

My favorite season is spring (although autumn is a close second.) The new growth holds so much symbolism...a perfect season for Easter!!

Val W said...

I've left a comment on all the blogs. What a wonderful release, and what talented designers. I've really enjoyed following the blog hop. I think fall is my favorite season, with the crisp air, and colorful leaves on the trees. I like it that it's cooler, and you can wear layers, but it's not too cold. Walks are always the best in the fall.

Lisa said...

Wonderful creations on this hop! Outstanding talent!
My favorite season is fall because the earth shows all my favorite colors.

Colorado said...

I finished the blog hop. I left a comment on every designer's blog. Wow, it's hard to pick a favorite season... they all have their own beauty. But, I guess if I had to pick just one it would be Spring. I don't care for really cold weather, so I'm always happy when spring comes bringing everything back to life and at that time I know I'll be enjoying warmer weather all the way through summer and into fall.

Rosie said...

Love the beautiful hop and all the creative crafters. My favorite season is autumn with the beautiful yellows, oranges, rusts and browns.

Joanne Travis said...

I have finished the hop and was so inspired by all of the beautiful samples. You have really talented and creative designers!
Every day is beautiful to me but I would have to say that overall my favorite season would be spring. It is a time of hope, and new beginnings, where all of nature awakens from the sleep of the cold, winter days.

LeeAnn said...

My favorite season is fall. In Oregon we usually have such a wonderful Indian Summer. I love the colors of all the trees, I love the cool crisp weather, I like the sounds of football and soccer matches.

Flo - Sweetideas said...

I finished visiting each blog and left a comment for each of their beautiful creations.
Fall is my favorite season. The heat of summer is over and I can bake once again. The cool crisp air and the colors are wonderful too.

Kathy O said...

Beautiful cards and creations! Thank you for the blog hop and for sharing your designers' ideas!

I left comments for all the designers.
AND I posted my comment for Randi twice by accident!!!

Since I've gotten older, I guess my favorite season is autumn. It's such a welcome change from the hot humid weather we have in the summer. I love the changing colors of the leaves and the cooler temperatures!
AND I love football!!!

Marsha said...

Autumn is my favorite season - the Lord has blessed us with earth's harvest and we are now getting ready for the winter - but spring and new life will come again. I did not get to comment on Angella Crocket site - could not get it to work. This was the best blog hop ever. Thanks.

LeeAnn said...

I kind of started at the beginning answering the question about what season. I have now finished the blog hop. Fall is still my favorite season. Top reason is I love the beautiful colors of the fall leaves. Thank you so much for putting the blog hop together. I had not been to ODBD blog before. I just stumbled on to the blog. I love your stamps. I hope that in the future I can purchase some. They are inspiring and beautiful. Thank you very much.

Heidi said...

Beautiful samples out there! WOW. And I am so excited about those dies!

My favorite season: oh that is hard because season wise I LOVE summer, the heat, the sunshine, just the overall feeling. But then again, there is the holiday season too- and I love Christmasl. LOL- I know, I know- how confused am I?

Anna said...

I hopped until I dropped LOL I finished and left each a comment on all the awesome blog hops and got so many awesome ideas. Love your stamps. Spring is my favorite season cause it seems like a rebirth of everything.

Kay said...

I visited each blog and enjoyed the creations these beautiful ladies created. I like the new stamp sets ODBD has designed. My favorite season has always been fall because of the cool crisp air and beautiful colors. Thank you for sharing all your colorful ideas.

Marsha said...

I wasn't able to join the hop in the time frame but did go through all the sites and once again - absolutely beautiful. Most talented team in the stamping world. I love Autumn. It is definitely my favorite season with the colors, the smells, the weather.

l_zickert said...

Another blog hop from ODBD that I thouroughly enjoyed. Visited all of the blogs and left each of the lovely ladies a comment.

My favorite season is spring when everything wakes up from a long winter's sleep.

Babs Y. said...

Totally enjoyed the blog hop; a very pleasant way to spend an evening.

It's hard for me to pick my favorite season. I love something about each season. Love the snow in winter, the flowers in the spring, warmth (but not humidity) in the summer, and leaves changing in the fall.

Allymcb1 said...

I hopped onto this blog by mistake but have spent ages here looking aorund and having a great time. So now I am off to do the blog hop.
My favourite season- not really sure but as one of my favourite flowers is Snowdrops perhaps it is spring because when those small flowers appear so does hope. Hope that the winter will soon be over.

I am sorry I was not able to participate in this delightful blog hop in the right timeframe. My life was way too full last week to even be online at all. I did complete the hop just now and wanted to say, Ladies, your gifts are mighty. I am so glad to have been able to see so much delightful artwork, bringing glory to the Father. Randi, You are a remarkable woman. May the Lord shine upon you in these next days.
