July Release Blog Hop!

Hello friends of ODBD, and welcome to the July 1 Release Blog Hop!  We've been busy creating for you and we have been having lots of fun!  I hope you have had time to view the release, but if not, just scroll down one post!

We do have just a couple announcements to share before we get started!  First,  we have decided to change things up a bit on the blog here, and one of the changes is that the Scrapbook Challenge will be on hold for a while. We want to thank the entire Scrapbook Team for all their hard work and inspiring layouts they have shared with us!  Patter, Gemiel, Lisa and Suzzanne... thank you ladies soooo much!!!   You will be tremendously missed!!!

We also wanted to just let you know that our talented Connie has decided to move to the Alumni Team to accommodate her work schedule a bit better, and our delightful  Debi has decided to return to the Design Team after a term on the Challenge Team! (Welcome back Debi!!!)  Our fabulous Fran has decided to step down from the Alumni Team, and we will miss her tremendously, but the Alumni Team has a new member too... the incredibly talented Tosha!    Remember the old game "Fruit Basket Upset" where everyone gets up and dodges for another chair?  Well.... this is kind of like "Bread Basket Upset"!  LOL!

As you might have already read, our Shining the Light Challenge is moving from Saturday to Tuesday beginning this week on July 3!    I also wanted to mention that MOST ALL ODBD Posts will now post at 8am eastern time.  There may be a special post here and there that posts at a different time, but all our regular posts will be at 8am.... so now with a consistent time, you all know when you can expect to see our regular events!  There are a few other exciting things coming along soon, but more on them later!


OK... now lets get this Hop started!!!  Here are the details:

  • Blog Hop will run from 8am July 1 'til 8pm EDT July 2 
  • Winners will be announced July 3
  • Prizes: Three $20.00 Gift Certificates toward stamps and one GRAND PRIZE of the entire July Bread Basket Bundle!!!
It's vacation time for many right now, and we want to keep this hop as simple as possible.... so all you have to do is simply visit all the links below, leaving a little love for each designer and come back here to tell us you completed the hop, and letting us know if you had problems leaving any comments!  That's it!  Easy peasy!!!


Here is the order for the hop... grab a cuppa, and enjoy!!!

Just a note: Dawn's home was  hit by a storm a few days ago and is still without power, so she will not be included in the hop today, and Becca had something personal come up and was unable to join us either.  So, if you have trouble with any links, please follow the list below.  Thank you!!

All the cards were gorgeous. The ladies are very talented. I could not post on Dawn's site. Her last post was on Friday. There was no post for the blog hop. I will try her later.

Enjoyable Sunday Afternoon Hop. As I have said before, ODBD design team has got to be the most talented group of gals that I have ever seen. Beautiful cards, and Grace's card blew me away. I had to just sit and stare at it for awhile. So stunning. I left comments at every blog, but the comment on Sabrina's blog didn't post. Maybe it is delayed. Love these new stamp sets.

Hi! I took my time and completed this phenomenal blog hop! Ladies, I don't know how you do it...but you have outdone yourselves, each and every one of you! These stamps are so dramatic, so full of life, and the Scriptures and Sentiments are so perfectly matched, and thought-provoking I am both excited by the art, and calmed and comforted by the Words.

He IS Able!
