What a beautiful set this month! (They all are however!) My memories: MANY (as in 37 yrs. ago) my husband, 2 yr. son and I walked the beaches of MA for a day, just talking and enjoying our child. It is so special because he died eight years later, & I will forever preserve that day in my heart.

Robin said...

Lovely sets and projects! I would save the time when all of my children were young.

terriavidreader (IN-USA) said...

One of my happiest times was very recent, the birth of my first grandchild in January.
Loved the hop and seeing all the lovely projects - thanks!

Julie said...

I was able to leave a comment on every blog, but Grace's link did not take me to Dina's blog. Any time I look into the lovely faces of my grandchildren, is my favorite time. Thanks for enabling everyone to share God through your stamp sets!

The ladies all did a great job showcasing these new stamps. The moment I most treasure would be the very first time I held my babies and looked at their precious little faces and fingers and toes.

Becky said...

Well I just finished the hop, I do hope my comment took over at Becca's. This new release is just stunning, but I have to say that crochet set is my all time favorites, it is just elegant and the scripture with it is awesome.

Happiest Time:
It was the summer of 1959, we had went on a picnic in the country side in Germany. In those days there were dirt roads and there was nothing but fields and fields as far as the eye could see and the aroma of flowers came from every direction.As I sat and looked out I was in total peace. It was one of the most peaceful moments of my life and every Spring when flowers bloom and give off their fragrance I remember that day.

Teresa said...

What a truly awesome release this month. I would save the last Valentine's Day I spent with my husband in 2004 who went to be with our Savior 2 wks later.

I hope it let's me post my comments as google has had issues this am. Iwent to every blog but I couldn't leave my comment at Sandee's , Chris', Lorelie, Dawne, grace, or Betty's - google issue

Sherry Kushibab said...

Fabulous blog hop...so much talent. I have so many moments in my life that are like a slide show in my head, remembering laughter and joy at various times with each of my children and as a family.....those slides also include some tragic times and tears....As we prepare to move in a few weeks I am making new slides of people and places here to remember when I leave. Grateful for each day and how God blesses me.

Mary Jo said...

What wonderful inspiration from all of the designers. The new stamps are lovely. Those happy moments you would like frozen include the birth of my daughter and son and more recently that of my granddaughter. They bring on so many happy memories.

Anonymous said...

Witnessing the birth of my first grandchild has to be up there in my most precious moments! But then viewing all the wonderful projects made with ODB stamps is near the top as well. Great job everyone.

hugtherapist2000 said...

Didn't mean to have that last comment be anonymous so pretend I didn't do that.

Donna said...

Love all the projects, so much work from everyone! The stamp set is great but then all of them are! God has blessed me with many wonderful memories but some kinds recent was 2 yrs ago when all my kids their spouses, my grandkids and my husbnad and I spent the week at the beach. Everyone got along so well and God blessed in so many ways that week. I am praying for another week like that this summer but if not I will always cherish that week! Thanks for all you do!

Marlena M. said...

I enjoyed that hop so much. I couldn't believe I was at the end so fast. Amazing work, amazing team!
One of my happiest days that IS FOREVER FROZEN IN MY MIND...is my husband coming home alive after a 15 month deployment in Iraq. I worried about that man every day and minute through the year and a half. The only time I rested, was when we were instant messaging...because I knew he was alive right then. I know that not everyone had the blessing of a homecoming, and for that, my heart breaks. I still cry when thinking of that day, with my three young girls (7,5,3) by my side. We were all so relieved...I sobbed through the whole ceremony. My heart aches for those going through that same hardship right now....that deployment changed me forever.

Clare said...

I love all the projecs, and have gotten much enspiration from them! Beautiful stamps and dies! I'd love to order the Bread Basket bundle, but I'm a little short of money at the moment.

Kaye W. said...

Love the new set and all of the projects and inspiration from all of the wonderful designers on the hop! This was my first blog hop and I will definetly be back!

dclouser said...

Another amazing hop from ODBD! Your stamps are my all-time favorites! I guess I would have to say that the moment I would like to freeze in time is when my grandson blew kisses for the first time to ME on skype! He lives in a different country and I feel so blessed to be able to talk with him via the internet so that he knows me.

Colleen said...

What Beautiful projects done by each and everyone. I have finished the hop and really enjoyed seeing all the different techniques.
Guesss I would have to say my happiest moment was on my wedding day; soon to be 42 years of wedded bliss.

Chrissy D said...

WOW! Wonderful projects from everyone. I enjoyed hopping through and being inspired!

Darla said...

Very lovely projects on all the blogs, thank you for the inspiration! I sometimes want to go back so badly to the stage where my kids were babies! LOVE babies!

Patty said...

I love the beautiful stamps and dies. This was such a lovely hop that I hated to see it end. The DT each had wonderful projects. My best time is spent with my family, especially the grandkids. They have blessed me in so many ways!

Cheryl Winget said...

This was an absolutely amazing blog hop - the products used are just fantastic. I loved them all and they really got my creative juices flowing. If I could freeze just one moment in time, I think it would be when I held my first baby in my arms for the very first time. The miraculousness of birth always takes my breath away.

Gloria Westerman said...

Just finish with the hop...(no problems)...this set has so much versatility...and the DT showed that with their wonderful and beautiful creations.....I love them all...thank you so much for sharing this with us....
My moment in time is ...when my grandson Wyatt is with me....he shows me so much love...and every minute with him is so cherish in my heart.....he won't be little forever....

Charlotte said...

Just finished the hop, and was so blessed by all the beautiful projects the DT created with this latest set of stamps! They are truly an inspiration!
I have so many wonderful memories it's hard to choose just one. Having been on the mission field away from my family for so long, I would have to say that I cherish each and every moment that we're able to spend with our children (and, now our grandchild).

Vail's Creative Endeavors said...

Your design team did an awesome job, many great ideas with you new stamp sets that are just wonderful. My most cherished memory is the day my daughter was born. Thank you for the chance to win one of these great prizes.

Melody (lacyquilter) said...

Wonderful blog hop. So many fabulous samples. One of my happiest moments was when my husband (then boyfriend) proposed. Although, I really don't think I'd want to stay in that moment and miss all the blessings since then.

Sandydee said...

Just finished visiting & commenting on all of the blogs. All I can say is WOW! This June release is fantastic. I would have to say that a moment that I wish could have been frozen in tiem would be aftr my husband finished his first treatments for cancer. They ran tests and it didn;t show any cancer. We had an additional 7 years together and going through this toghter, btought us closer together, what love we shared.

Francie G. said...

So much beauty! You ladies are awesome!

reeree62 said...

The new stamps are wonderful!!
Too many precious moments to choose from....but definitely special middle-of-the-night feedings with my babies...precious times 1-on-1 and peaceful.

Catherine said...

Wow! Everyone did such an amazing job with these gorgeous new stamps & dies!

If I could, I'd want to hold onto my childhood summers when my grandfather was still alive. My grandparents lived on a lake and we'd swim, fish and take leisurely boat rides. The Lord called him home when I was 8, and I miss him every day.

Thanks for a great hop and tons of inspiration!

Karen Wedding said...

I love seeing all the great projects everyone has made. I had so many problems leaving comments on several of the sites though. Connie, Chris, Sandee, Lorelie, Dawn, Grace and Betty all had issues with Google. I just kept going in a loop. I would sign-in so many times. Great hop, though. I hope I can still win with the few blogs I could leave messages.

Brenda said...

I really love this months set - so pretty! It's hard to pick out that one special time above all others - marriage - births - grandchildren, etc. But I think one of my best memories is the day I was able to bring my husband home from the hospital after he suffered a major heart attack and open heart surgery. God has blessed us with 10 more years together with our family and he is still doing well!

Anonymous said...

Just completed the fun blog hop.Some very talented ladies there!!I am crazy for this new set.

One time I would keep was the last day I spent with my mom before she went into the hospital. We went to the movies and laughed until we cried, then had time with family.I will treasure this day !!!!

Cindy Coutts said...

I finished the blog hop.

I wish I could have frozen time honestly for about a year and a half when it was just my son Mike and me. We did everything together and he was the best baby and son that a mother could ask for.

Now, he's 25 and lives 3000 miles away in New York and I miss him so much. He's coming out in August and that will be the first time that I've seen him in a year.

We used to sing songs together when he was a baby and I used to sing to him all the time. Now I'm going to go and have a good cry. I really miss him a lot and there's just a piece of me missing. His scrapbook album is the only one that's done out of all of my kids and it's also the only one that I keep current. Nobody knows about it but me and it's hidden in my desk so I can look at it anytime I want to.

Here's a blog post that I wrote for him when he turned 25 on April 9 this year if you'd like to read it: http://cindycoutts.com/?p=7597.

God bless you all and have a Spirit-filled day.

Judy said...

I agree that these designs are the best ever. I love them and all the beautiful designs shared using them. I have had so many beautiful and precious memories it's hard to pick one. They all include my sweet husband, children, grandchildren and family. I just wished time didn't fly so swiftly. As much I'd love my children to be still young and home with us, I would never wish away my sweet grandbabies.

Linda said...

Hi, I just finished the blog hop, it was fun to see all the beautiful creations. My happiest time is my weddingday and the birth of my children, but infact I am happy every day because I love to see the kids grow up, and I love the time we spend as family togehther.
hugs Linda dekker

Penny Reed said...

I just finished the hop - my comment on Dina's site didn't show up but I did comment. The time I'd like to save would be my honeymoon with my wonderful husband of now 40 years! God blessed us so much with each other. Thank you for your inspiration!

Nadine said...

Wonderful Cards! Can't wait to see the rest.

I am not certain if the happiest time was when I got married to my husband or the birth of our daughter. Both were pretty spectacular in my history.

Anonymous said...

I had a great time completing the hop. Thank you to all for sharing your creativity. The new stamps are awesome!

FM said...

I had a great time completing the hop. Thank you to all for sharing your creativity. The new stamps are awesome!

Barb said...

I did the hop and was able to go to all of the blogs. The creations are just stunning--that is the word that I used most often on the blogs too.

Your set is beautiful and I am sure I will be using it soon!

I would freeze in time the vacation in Alaska--it is just so beautiful there and a relaxing time was had by all!

L said...

yeah! I completed my 1st blog hop! great to see everyone beautiful creations. (I did leave a comment on Dina's blog but its the only one of my hop that hasn't been published yet).
My most recent "happiest time" has been spread over the past couple weeks as God has been using many different sources to teach me about the awesomeness & power of His Word. I truly want to treasure that awareness in my heart forever!
TY again 4 the great hop

Beth said...

I finished the hop and only had trouble at Chris's so I sent her an email. For some reason some of the blogs I have trouble with using my Google account with - finally just ended up at the other blogs signing in with my blog url.
Most precious time for me was when I married my best friend...

Carol Chavis said...

Went through the hop ----love all the examples of your new set. One of happiest memories: My husband I took our 3 year old grandson on his first fishing trip. The look on his face and the excitement in his voice when he caught his first fish was beyond description. He must have "squealed" for 10 minutes.

Designing with Debbie said...

Just finished my hop and completed it successfully on everyone's blog. I love all the creations that everyone had to share. As for the moment in time that I wish I could freeze would be a tie for the first time I heard my three girls cry for the first time and the first time they said I love you. Each one of these moments are so very precious and dear to me.

I really enjoyed the hop this month and I look forward to each month to see the new releases. Thanks for you deidication.

Pauline said...

Love the blog hop. All the designs are amazing. I would say the moment I treasure the most was my wedding day, and secondly, the day my children were born.

JR said...

Everyone's projects were great! Such talented artists. Every moment is precious, but my favorite moments are spent with the ones I love.

Donna said...

I absolutely LOVE this set of stamps! I completed the hop and left a comment on each site except Becca, and I couldn't get it to take. I love every day I spend with my grown son and I treasure them more as time passes. He is the light of my life and I look forward to creating so many more memories with him and preserving them in my heart. Thanks for providing such beautiful stamps for us!

Barbie D. said...

What an absolutely beautiful release this month. I was able to leave a comment on each blog and thoroughly enjoyed viewing each creation.
The moments I would like to freeze in time would be the birth of each of my three sons. Being a mom is the greatest joy there is (next to stamping of course).

Diana B. said...

A lovely set of new releases. I would save the time when my granddaughter was born and beautiful memory.

southernscraps said...

Finished the hop, love the new releases. One of the happiest days was my wedding day. I was so happy to marry that man, and still happy!

Mrs Ham said...

I just finished the hop, and I must say, there was some absolutely stunning projects shown by the DT. I loved everything.

I've had some absolutely wonderful memories in my life, but the one I would love to freeze, was my graduation day. It was a LONG journey starting years ago, and I finally finished on May 10th. What makes this memory so special to me? Well, I started this journey as a single woman, and finished it with a wonderful husband and my 4 yr old son there with me. Having the two of them with me on that day is a memory I will cherish forever.

Anonymous said...

Another neophyte--this was my first successful blog hop, and I think/hope that maybe I was able to leave comments on every artist's work. I enjoyed them all, and wish I could see their layouts/cards/wallet in person, because the camera does catch only certain angles. My life has been blest from my mother's womb onward, and I thank God daily for new moments of joy. Everything pales compared to time alone with my Lord, except possibly time worshipping God with my dear ones. Last night my DD said "Can I have my own devotional? I know how." I said, "Yes, but as Mama I reserve the right to kiss good night and pray with you, anyway."
Thanks very much for this respite from other tasks. --Jennifer in Ohio

stampencamper said...

what a fun blog hop, so much talent, such great images and die cuts. Blogger waas not always co-operative again, and didn't get to leave comments for those sites, that kept taking me back to sign in

Lillian Child said...

My frozen moment would definitely be the birth of my first grandchild, Jonas, who just turned 3 last month. What a delight to see the world through his eyes. Such a blessing.

The hop was fabulous, as they always are with such a talented design team. Thanks to everyone for sharing their projects with us.

Nadine said...

whew! this is the first time I have ever navigated through a blog hop. It has been fun seeing everyone's creations and comments. Thanks to everyone for all the great ideas.

Lillian Child said...

Note: I had trouble posting on Becca's blog. I got an error message both times I tried. Thanks.

Dani said...

Another wonderful and inspiring hop! I had no problem leaving everyone a comments.

One of my happiest memories is when my husband proposed to me. I never thought that I would ever get married, much less to someone as wonderful as my Hubby!

Anonymous said...

I completed the blog. Every project was great.
One of my happiest times is when my grandson & later my granddaughter Because it looked like I was never going to be a grandmother.

bethann said...

great blog hop and wonderful stamps. the time i would love to preserve is the moment when my 2 kids and my parents and I were at Disneyland together. it was so wonderful seeing the kids having a great time and sharing w their g'parents. i don't know who enjoyed it more

Raspberries and Rose Petals said...

I just completed the blog hop ~ what a great group of talented ladies! So many beautiful projects for the new releases!

There are many moments that I would have liked to freeze in time ~ moments I hope to never forget! One in particular was a warm summer evening when my husband and I went to an outdoor Christian concert for one of our favorite groups. It was so nice, sitting on the grassy hillside, listening to great music with my sweetie! We often will pop the CD in the player and remember what a special evening that was!

Thanks for another great hop! My fingers are crossed!

Hugs!

Marilyn said...

I would like to freeze the time I spent in SA in my memory.

Love the beautiful set this month!

Karen H. said...

Oh my goodness I had so much fun doing the hop! I enjoyed every minute of it! You have the best team ever! Enjoyed seeing you at the Millwakee show!

Mommamea's favorite things said...

This basket just moved to the top of my list of must haves. I love this bundle.

The happiest times of my life have been many, so I wouldn’t want to stop time because I would have missed so much. God has blessed me with a wonderful family. The day I married my wonderful husband (29 yrs ago). He was my true gift from God, don’t ever marry unless God gives you your spouse. The birth of my 4 kids. The moments that you know you are so loved and cherished. Life is meant to be enjoyed delight in the good and leave the bad behind. God knows your life and wants you to be happy. God bless you Kelly for your company and sharing your love of God with us all.

Thank you for the chance to win all or one of these great sets! Every designer did a fabulous job with their creations!!! I did leave two comments of Dina's blog by accident.
My husband and I spent a wonderful week in Ireland. The country and it's people were so welcoming and we had a great time...just the two of us...exploring the Irish countryside. We met so many warm and gracious people!

April said...

I have completed the blog hop and what amazing projects everyone had! I love all the stamps. I would save the time I was at the Military Tattoo in Scotland when a lonely bagpiper was at the top of the castle playing Amazing Grace. What a beautiful and heartfelt moment. What grace God has bestowed on me.

Teresa said...

Simply amazing blog hop...enjoyed every minute of it. I guess it is google, but I couldn't comment on Chris, Betty, Grace or Dawn's blogs and I so loved all of them. One of my most precious memories is when my son (16 now) first told me he would love me forever!! He still tells me...but he is usually running out the door! Thanks for the chance to hop along today! Teresa E.

RoseSommer said...

One of my most perfect moments?
A few years ago me and my dear husbond sat on a pier in Lofoten (in the north of Norway). It was 2 o'clock in the night, the midnight sun was up, no wind, perfect temperature. We needed our sunglasses there in the middle of the night. We had coffee, food, great view (- the North Sea as long as your eye could see). High mountains just behind our backs. We could have been there forever....

Susan said...

Thanks for a wonderful blog hop -- the new sets are lovely.
One of my best memories is the day I gave birth to my son. A blessed moment indeed.

CommaHolly said...

wow, my first blog hop and I had a blast! Thank you! I loved seeing all the amazing creations and how they used the beautiful set! I was unable to comment on Chris' blgog. I had trouble with several, in fact, and had to comment as "anonymous", though I signed each comment as "Holly" (probably my comuter!)

I would want to save the times I was a child sitting in my grandmother's kitchen,,,I can still smell the food she cooked and feel the love she gave me all those many years ago! she's been gone 26 years now, and so I treasure the memories she left me. I was so very fortunate that I was her grandchild.

Thanks for a lovely blog hop! and good luck to all the particiants!

Peggy said...

Had a wonderful time on the blog hop and love the new stamps.
God bless,

Wonderful hop,beautiful stamp sets.I think I was able to comment on all blogs although some donot show right away.I guess I would love to preserve my own childhood ...simple times.

LaDawn said...

So I was able to leave a comment for everyone but Becca. For some reason it did not post. As for my moment I would freeze is, having my great-grandmother at my bridal shower and then my wedding. I was the only great-grandchild to have her at my shower and wedding. She was a very Godly woman and an inspiration to me. I still use her Godly wisdom to this day.

What a beautiful, relaxing hop. . .took my time and savored each stop along the way. . .life is like that and the Lord gives us sweet moments, bittersweet, and some very sour and distasteful moments, but they are all from His gracious hand fitting us for eternity with Him. Thankfully, the happiest time of my life doesn't have to be frozen to last forever! It was the day the Lord redeemed my worthless, helpless self from the pit and stood my feet on the solid rock of Jesus! Janaria (Jan E.)

crazyoldsyd said...

gREAT SET THIS MONTH AND ALWAYS. lOVED ALL THE BLOG HOPS, ALL ARE BEAUTIFUL. GOT SOME WONDERFUL 'GOD' IDEAS! THANKS

When we WERE a family, before my husband left, we always attended Maranatha Missionary Bible Camp every summer, and we stayed for a week. I wish I could freeze those weeks, spending time on Lake Michigan and spending special times with our many friends. Those WERE THE GOOD OLD DAYS!

Luanne said...

I have lots, but I remember a weekend a few years back. My middle son was graduating from Law School, it was my birthday, and Mothers Day, and all my children, my husband and I were sitting in church together. My husband leaned over and said, "you must feel so blessed". Truly I am, and that was a moment to freeze in time!

Lana said...

What a great month of releases Sandy!! I visited all the DT & they did fabulous projects just AWESOME! I have two favorite moments 1. my little girl curled up sleeping in her DOLL BED!!She was bigger then the bed LOL 2. All my kids and Grandkids this past Mother's day surprised me and walked in each carrying pots of tulips all in bloom with BIG smiles on their faces.
Hugs to all!

Sue D said...

I left a comment on everyone's blogs.
One of my happiest moments in life was at the Eagle Scout ceremony for my two youngest boys. This meant that all 4 of my boys had received their Eagle awards and I was one proud mama seeing all 4 of them together in their uniforms.

Lori said...

Wow! That was the best hop yet! I would have to say the happiest time was the day I was married. I don't remember ever feeling so joyful. I was walking on air, until I almost fainted due to the extreme Sept. heat and looong winded minister, heehee.

Rachel said...

This may be favorite release yet, but then I say that every month.

I have had so many special moments, from the birth of my two children to marrying my high school sweetheart... having my life saved by amazing doctors, and so much more.
But recently I moved to Texas and was able to go and visit my Granmother's Sisters and their children and Grandchildren, I met with a cousin I grew up with who also just moved here and we were able to meet family we had never ever met in our lives. It was the most AMAZING day of my life. I took my 2 year old daughter, and she met her 2 year old 3 cousin and identical TWIN!!!!
Meeting people who looked exactly like me, had the same sense of humor, loved me instantly. It was like I had always been there, because I had been in the same kitchen a world away... eating the same food my Grandma made, even though I was so far from her, hearing her laugh, even though it was coming from one of her sisters!!! HEAVEN.

Linda K said...

The designers out done them selfs. All of you inspire me to do more. I was able to leave a comment on every blog.
It was two years ago when I brought my little yorkie pup home. She was so tiny and still is, needed lots of love and care, that is just what she got here.
Thanks so much for sharing.

Linda said...

I finished the hop and it was wonderful! What a gifted group of women. I always enjoy these new release blog hops.
My most wonderful time of my life was when I married my husband. It was the happiest day of my life. I knew that the Lord was in in it and I couldn't have been more thrilled!

One of my happiest memories is picking raspberries with grandma as a small child. She never got mad when we ate more than we picked :)

Just finished the hop and what a wonderful assortment it has been! Love the creative lacey effects used by so many of you! Jeneen

Bobbi said...

All your designs are great, and its hard to choose a favorite, but the last set is truly beautiful. Five years ago my husband and I went on vacation and experienced a truly carefree time. I wish we had more free time to appreciate the little things like a sunset on the beach.

Jackie W said...

Wow! These sets are so beautiful. I am putting the poppy set at the top of my list for after vacation (if I have any $$ left-I will get to visit an Archivers store-where I live we only have a very small Michaels and online. Which is why I love ODBD :D) Thanks so much for a chance to win. (I did have a little trouble leaving comments at first, but then I figured it all out-so much fun to learn new things-and I am 61 so goes to show you're never to old to learn something new!!!!)

Jo4Him said...

What a great "hop"; the design team really outdid themselves. I could not get to Julie's blog (always have trouble with hers). I LOVE the new stamps and dies; definitely going on my wish list. The happiest moments are spending time with family; any one of those could be frozen in time! Thanks for offering the great prizes.

I was able to leave a comment on all the blogs, what lovely cards.
I can't remember any one thing for there are too many ,but maybe getting our first house.

Candy Meyers said...

I love all these stamps and samples. This is a great blog hop. If I had one time when I could freeze time it would be watching the proud joy on my parents faces when I surprised them and sang the National Anthem with the Florida Orchestra. That was a real "high" for me.
Thanks for your blog.
Candy Meyers

Pat said...

I have sooo ENJOYED this blog hop! I WANT the whole basket! The women on your team are an outstanding group of artist! Beautiful, beautiful projects everyone! Thank you for all the time and hard work that goes into each one! I couldn't comment on Debi's, Dina's or Patter's blog. My moments in time I'd like to freeze are so many...my wedding day to my high school sweetheart (47 years age), The birth of my five healthy, beautiful kids, and the birth of my 18 precious grand children. God has been so good to me!!! I have so may cherished memories, each etched in my nmemory, I don't want to forget any of them, EVER!

charlene said...

I finished the hop, I was able to leave a comment on every blog except Becca's. Moment I would like to "freeze" would be the times my three son's come home from military service. Very proud of all my children,(four girls)as well, but something about a son in uniform. smile.

melindabandow said...

I am so overwhelmed with the new sets and the creativity of the "hoppers"....I visited each but signed Connies and Angies as Anonymous due to hitting enter too quickly. I have been so fortunate in my life to have many moments and trials which I would like frozen in time....guess it would be the day that I realized how much my husband really loves me and also the day he came to Christ.

christi said...

hi, i just finished the hop and what a great dt you have. so creative. the new stuff is wonderful. love the lace background and dies. a time if wish i could have frrozen forever. one that comes to mind is when i was on the beach on the gulf coast of florida and i played with snails for hours. i was an adult and just enthralled with the way they just burrowed back into the sand where ever the water washed them to or where i put them. it was just so peaceful there. i remember tjhinking that i could stay there forever and do theat. of course reality came along and off i went. i still remember how serene it was that day playing with the snails.

I visited all the blog designer sites and left a comment. There are certainly a lot of beautiful projects!!
15 years ago my daughter and I spent a week on Maui. Both of use were sad to leave. It is the most beautiful place I have ever seen. God may have wanted us to have a glimps of paradise so He designed Maui.

Wow what great new stamps and dies! Your designs are great and your designers are wonderful with their inspirational cards and projects!
I don't know if I'd really want to freeze time...but seeing my grandchildren born has been awesome!

The moment I would like to freeze in time would be the time my husband and I spent in Oahu for our honeymoon.

I completed the hop. I was blown away with all the beautiful projects. This is a fantastic release!!! One of my happiest times was when I got to hold my son for the first time right after he was born. I had him a little later in life and there was a time that I wondered if I would ever be a mother so that moment was really joyful.

Teri said...

I just finished the blog hop and am absolutely inspired by all of the wonderful cards/projects! Breathtaking!

The most memorable moment for me...the day I realized that forgiveness will set you free.

Sonia said...

I thoroughly enjoyed the hop! As always, great stamp sets! I attempted to leave a comment on every blog but not all of them would go through. Don't know if it is my computer or soemthing to do with the connection, but I loved everyone's project. Thanks to everyone who contributed.

I loved seeing all the projects on the blog hop. There are several times in my life I wish I could just freeze or preserve. If I had to preseve a time, it would have to be attending Luther Seminary in St. Paul, MN. I met many wonderful poeple there including my hasband.

the blog hop was fabulous each site was saturated with talented, beautiful and creative visions. i would love to stop time walking with my Grandmother through her gardens sharing our thoughts and love. She has been with the Lord for 32 years but her spirit is with us still.

Sharon Peele said...

The stamps and dies are awesome, and the DT did an wonderful job with them!!
To be honest with you the happiest time in my life is when I got saved and was baptized!! I had an over whelming felling of piece and love, it's hard to describe!!

Kim Rudisill said...

This release is so very nice. I have completed all the hops. The designers had beautiful creations. An amazing time that I would like to have frozen in time would have to be my wedding day. Still love my husband after 33 years.

Irish Eyes said...

Wow, I have so many special moments it is hard to choose just one. I choose the moment I held my granddaughter in my arms the first time.

nantastic said...

Just completed this hop and it was so inspiring. The new release is awesome and was showcased so beautifully and creatively. Had no trouble except I accidentally duplicated a comment on Becca's blog.
Thanks for this amazing hop. Many happy times in my life as I am truly blessed. But this set and the creative cards, etc.just reminded me of the time I had with my dear grandmother before she died. The crochet images, poppies and dahlias remind me of her and the faith and wisdom she passed along to me. I treasure all the time and love she freely gave me.

Hi, I completed the hop and TRIED to leave a comment on each one but google kept saying i wasn't signed in. I would resign in and go thro the whole process again and again, till I finally gave up. the ones that I couldn't leave a comment on were: Chris,Sandee, Lorelie, Dawn and Betty. they all had awesome projects too!
I would have to say when my grandchildren were born.

Patricia said...

I found out about this hop at the last min. It was wonderful to see everyone's creativity with the new stamps. I hope I win the grand prize it would be a blessing for the scrapbook that I do for my church. These are georgeous stamps and I appreciate the chance to win them. I have had many happy times in my life, from finding my love of my life (my husband), my two children's birth, but I have to say my happiest time is when I found my Lord. I am so grateful for my salvation and He is number 1 in my life.

Karen Linarez said...

I finished a great blog hop, and love the new "Serve the Lord" set. One of the happiest times I remember was last year when my husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary with a vow renewal. The vows were awesome!

Lagene said...

I finished the hop & I love these stamps! WONDERFUL! A time in my life when I wished I could preserve time was several years ago, my husband & I went to Italy with our church group and it truly was the trip of my lifetime....wish I could go again!

Vickie Merrick said...

I just finished the blog hop, and, oh, what fun it was. I absolutely love seeing what other people create and it truly inspires me to push myself to be more creative.

The one moment I would freeze-frame is the summer I was 8 years old. I was sitting on a boulder at the Christian summer camp I was attending, thinking about what the minister had spoken about in the evening service. In that quiet setting with all of God's beauty surrounding me, I asked Jesus to forgive me of my sins and to come live in my heart. I still remember the tears of joy and great excitement I felt when I realized Jesus really did love me!!!

Barb Ghig said...

Hi there! I have visited all the blogs, and was unable to leave a comment for Sandee, Lorelie, Dawn, Grace and Betty (All had issues with Google).
The moments in my life that I wish I could have frozen in time, would be the birth of my 2 children. I felt so incredibly blessed!
Thank you so much for all the inspiration and a chance to win!

Pati said...

I've completed the hop and enjoyed commenting on the creativity of the everyone!! I have wonderful childhood memories with my family, also traveling, seeing the beauty in nature God created!! Thanks for the continued great releases and the fun hops!!

Allymcb1 said...

Morning. I have completely a fantastic blog hop and as always have seen some incredible projects and very creative use of the images.
Memory:
Tricky one. Possibly a bit gushy, but I married quite late and I really think that is one of my happiest memories. I really loved the whole day, the service, the atmosphere, everything.

Laurie said...

Great hop, Ladies. I was able to comment on each blog & enjoyed seeing the beautiful creations.

The moment I wish could be frozen in time is our very first vacation to FL. We were with my parents & sister's family. The kids were all just under that age where they don't want to be there. The weather was warm & clear with low humidity. We were all on the beach. The waves were perfect for body surfing - even my dad was joining in the action. Everyone was laughing & having fun -- it was glorious!

Just a Few Designs said...

Hello, I just completed the hop and what a blessing to see so much talent. Im not sure if my 2 comments went through on Becca's blog.
My best memory to date, would have to be watching my frist born give birth to my first grandson, I thought I couldn't love anyone as much as I love my 2 daughters but this lil boy is proving me wrong!
Thanks for the hop, I loved it!

Lisa D. said...

Wow! I visited every talented person on the hop, and left a comment. So many beautiful ideas. I must say one of the happiest times of my life (down here) was when the Lord blessed my husband and me with a daughter after seven years together. He knew what He was doing as always and just gave us one child to care for! Thanks for all the hard work putting this blog together.

Miesje said...

Beautiful sets again this month. There are so many wonderful stand still moments - but the one that stands out the most is when our first child was handed to us in the office of the adoption center. WOW what a moment of awe and "Thanks be to God!". He is now 37 and I still get tingles when I think on it!

Trisha said...

Love the new releases, especially the crochet background. The blog hop was so inspirational, thanks.
I would love to go back in time, as a little girl and hold my fathers hand once more.

DottyA Cards & Things said...

This was a wonderful Hop!
My best times were when I was a kid riding my horse in the woods...it was the best!
Thanks for this chance to win!

Teri said...

The moment that I wish I could have frozen in time forever is the moment my 10 month old granddaughter, Giana, got a liver transplant and survived! It was the best news ever!! She is not 3 and doing well, thanks to God and her aunt who was the donor.

Great hop. Love all the new stamps!

Tanja said...

Thanks for the blog hop, all went well and I could comment on each one. My happy memories are many - so hard to pick one, my wedding day was wonderful and so was the ultrasound of my first son at 18 weeks of pregnancy - I was in tears for both. God blesses us so often with joy!

Evette K. said...

This months set is wonderful!! Love all the ideas your talented and blessed group of designers came up with.

Having each of my three children and holding them that first time. A mind blowing and God given event.
Completed blog run.

carol.drumwright said...

Just completed the blog hop and am so inspired that I can't wait to get ink and stamps in my hands again. The new stamps are amaginz! Had some trouble posting to Chris Olson's blog, otherwise the hop was smooth. There are so many amazing moments in my life, but if I had to choose one, I'd pick the day my husband and I pledged our love to each other on our wedding day!

Cindy said...

What a wonderful hop and such a beautiful stamp set! This one is definitely on my "get" list!! I would say my favorite memories would be the times I spent as a child with my grandmother. We lived 1200 miles away from each other and I only got to see her once or twice a year. She made me feel so special and loved. She has been gone over 30 years now and I still miss her! I am a grandmother now to 2 precious boys and 1 brand new baby girl. They are the lights of my life. Every moment is precious! I try to be the grandmother to them that mine was to me.

Taylor U. said...

WOW - I am completely bowled over by this month's release!! I've commented on all of the blogs - Becca's blog gave me a white screen after commenting, but when I tried to re-comment it said it detected a duplicate comment. So, I guess it's there now!

I'd freeze several moments in time - the first time I held my kids after they were born, the first time I saw my daughter hold her baby brother, and a few amazing hikes my husband and I went on when we lived in Maine. I'm terrible at picking favorites!

slbela59 said...

I loved each and every card/layout/project! They were all so awesome. This release is awesome. The moment I would freeze would be when each of my girls was first placed in my arms and God made me a mommy. They were probably the two happiest days of my life. Of course each day with my girls is a blessed and wonderful day. Thank you for sharing.

Jean C said...

I have hopped through the blogs and love all the projects. The June stamps are wonderful. Thank you for continuing to create lovely new and inspirational stamps. I couldn;t leave a comment on Debi's blog.

Cheryl S. said...

As always the team has outdone themselves. I was unable to leave a message for Lorelei.

Ratty Hugs said...

Loving the sets this month, just like every new release.
I'd preserve the day we were eating burgers at our fav burger place & Mom got the giggles. It was wonderful to see her enjoying herself. We lost her two months later to CJD.

Just completed the AMAZING BLOG HOP!! Wonderful treasures were unfolded to me as I gazed at each persons blog....and even better when I was able to leave a comment on each blog...yipee!! Thank you for the great hop. I treasure each moment in my life and have to many that a so special some so amazingly happy and some touchingly painful but all make up the person that I have become (so I would not trade them for anyting). Thank you for always giving us such amazing stamps to choose from to create and share with others.

Julia said...

What a beautiful set!! Thanks to all the designers for sharing their projects with all of us.
What Moment would I Freeze in Time?--I love life so there are so many of them:) One of my favorite times is when our entire family went to the beach for 7 days. What a wonderful time having us all together with 7 days to get away from all the schedules at home.

sdoll said...

I just finished the hop, I am blown away by all the beautiful things I seen. I can't figure out which are my favorites. I did have trouble posting on a couple of them and had to post anonymously. Thanks for taking us on such a fun trip.

Anonymous said...

Fantastic blog hop! I really enjoyed seeing all of these amazing pieces of work from all of these wonderfull ladies! So much talent! Thank you for sharing with all of us! I have many memories and happy times. I would have to say moments I treasure would be with my parents. Neither are here with me any longer, I sure do miss them, and think of them everyday. The Time In a Bottle card, really touched my heart! We never know how much time we have with anyone. Christine G.

Irene said...

What a lovely set of stamps...love the crochet stamps and dies!!! I visited all of the blogs and was so inspired by the variety. I was unable to leave comments on Chris, Sandee, Lorelei, Dawn and Betty's blogs. For some reason the page kept logging me out of my google account. I'll give one more try in a couple of hours.

My favorite memory? Reading Psalm 23 to my grandmother the night before she had to move to a nursing home. It is a heartbreaking memory but years later I can appreciate her humility and faith and I am so thankful I was able to share that difficult time with her. Thanks for allowing me to think back!

Cook22 said...

I've hopped and hopped, and as far as I know I was able to leave a comment on each blog after admiring all those beautiful creations.
I can think of a few special moments, but the one that comes to mind was last year when I acclimatized one of our little garden birds to come and eat from my hand. The feeling of that wee little bird, so light that you'd barely know it was there, coming with trust was truly amazing.

Bobbiecz said...

I love this set this month. Not that I don't love the other months, too, just this one seems extra special. There was one blog I was not able to leave a comment.

My special memory: I'm not sure I can narrow it down to just one. When my kids were born. When my grandchildren were born. I was able to be there for all 4 with #5 on the way. The day my mom was told she has cancer.

Louise Pena said...

Wow...all the designs were great. What a fun way to see them Ll with the blog hop. I've never done it before and it was fun. The stamp sets are lovely..winning the basket would be the "bees knees". My favorite memory to freeze is a toss up between my wedding day, the birth of my daughter, and the birth of my grandchildren. It's hard to choose just one.

Teresa Arsenault said...

Thank you for this blog hop. I enjoyed all of the designs made with the new stamp sets. I was very pleased to leave some sugar for each of the very talented designers.

As for a moment where I wish I could freeze time, I think I sort of have done just that. I remember distinctly the first time I held my firstborn son in my arms and our eyes met. It is 33 years and that moment has never dulled with the time.

Janet Swofford said...

What simply gorgeous projects of this awesome hop!
I would have to say I would freeze my wedding day to the love of my life:-)We've been married 31 wonderful years and have almost raised(both in college now) 2 beautiful children. I am truly blessed
Thanks again for this wonderful blog hop and for the chance to win these awesome sets:-)
Inky hugs,
Janet

Lynn said...

I really enjoyed your hop. I was not able to leave comments on Dina's, Patter's and Becca's blog. I'm not sure why. I will try again since I wanted to leave them some love. What gorgeous projects from everyone! These new sets are just amazing! Thanks so much for giving us a chance to win!!
My best memory is actually a series of memories, so to speak. Each summer my mom took me to the beach with my friends (when I was growing up). Later, she always took our family even when we just couldn't afford it ourselves. She LOVED the beach. My favorite memories are of times with her on those beach trips, especially just walking down the beach with her, enjoying the awesome beauty the Lord created. I can't see the ocean without thinking of how awesome God is. Now I can't see the ocean without remembering my mom, who went to be with the Lord 10 years ago. Memories I'll always have!
Thank all of you, ladies, for the awesome work you did for this bloghop!

Karinn said...

I have three kiddos, and and I cannot pick one birth moment over another :) I'll choose a precious moment from my childhood. My grandpa was my hero, I loved him more than anyone and he became crippled from WWII injuries and was unable to walk after many, many years of just having a painful limp. He was scared to death of surgery, but one day after he was in the hospital for a while, I was able to go visit him and he and I ran through his farm pastures. He told me he had surgery to replace his bad hip so that he could run with me and pick the wild flowers in the pastures. It was one of the happiest moments that I have to remember him by. I know he loved me :)

P.S. All link and comments worked for me. This was my first ODBD blog hop and I loved all the beautiful creations. Thank you!

Darlene Gabriel said...

Love the new sets and this great hop. I was able to complete it and leave comments at each stop. I would freeze the years I had with my first husband - my first love who went to be with God too early in our lives.

Cindy Lou said...

I love all the projects and cards from this set (although I continue to have problems with Julie's blog). my day to save was when I was able to watch my first son being born, and then 20 years later I got to watch his daughter being born. God is so generous, He just makes me over flow with love.

Anonymous said...

The ladies sbo all did a great job showcasing these new stamps. The moment I most treasure would be the very first time I held my babies and looked at sbobet their precious little faces and fingers and toes.
