May 1 Release Blog Hop!

Hello friends!  Welcome to the May Release Blog Hop!  Here in the U.S., May flowers are in full bloom, and the earth is singing the praises of it's Creator! We hope you are too!

I hope you had the chance to view the entire release!  If not, just scroll down one post to see it all!

We on the DT have been having lots of fun playing with our new toys, and are loving the versatility of these two new themes!  For the Cathedral Windows, I'm seeing Wedding cards, Sympathy Cards, Praying for you cards, Christmas Cards, and many other possibilities like candle wraps, luminaries and how about light catchers!  Of course we all love to have the tools to make easy "guy" cards, and our fishing themed sets will do just that!   I know you will see lots of great ideas on this hop, so I won't keep you any longer!

Here are the Details of the Hop:
  • Hop will run from 8:00 am EDT May 1 to 8:00pm EDT May 2
  • Winners will be announced May 3 here on the ODBD Blog
  • There will be THREE prizes:  a $20.00, $30.00, and $40.00 Gift Certificate toward stamps in the ODBD Store.  *Must be redeemed within the month of May!
  • To qualify to win, all you have to do is hop to each designer's blog, leave a comment, and return here to the ODBD Blog to tell us you completed the hop, and if you had any difficulties along the way!  Easy Peasy!!!
Here is the order for the hop:

    Tracy MacLoughlin said...

    Wonderful hop! What a talented group of ladies!

    Christine said...

    The cathedral window dies and stamp have that mark of elegance I've come to associate with ODBD products. I so enjoyed seeing the various colors the designers used with the window. The addition of flowers and foliage as well as the different ways the window "opened" on the projects were just delightful. Love the use of knots on the masculine cards.

    Love, love, love the tiny "handmade" stamps for the backs of the cards!

    Marianne Barkman said...

    Oh my word...those projects blew my mind away. Think there's any hope that mine would turn out similar? Thanks for hosting another fabulous blog hop!

    Sue A said...

    Audrey Ann said...

    Just finished the Hop and again I am in awe. What a wonderful and peaceful feeling - there's something truly special about the stamps and dies this month. And I love reading about how each card is made and all the other details - our DT is truly gifted!! Or maybe I'm just partial LOL!! Hugs everyone!

    Heather said...

    What a fun hop! I'm completely hooked on the new stamps. Had no problem getting to the blogs, but perhaps a problem saving my comment on Cathee's blog. I'm afraid she may have seven by me. :(
