Hello, everyone! It's a brand new month and that means....brand new stamps from Our Daily Bread designs....yay!!! Kelley never fails to provide the most beautiful images and wonderful scriptures and sentiments, month after month! Thanks, Kelley, for your focus, dedication, and diligence to bring us nothing but the best....Mwaah!!! :)
I'm going to start off with one of my personal faves for this month, "Keep Climbing"! Not only is the mountain image so majestic and beautiful, but the scriptures, sentiments, and Barry Finlay quote are perfect as well. Some of you may not be familiar with Barry Finlay, but he is an author/philanthropist/mountain climber from Canada, who, after he retired at 60, decided to climb Mt Kilimanjaro with his son, while using this platform to raise money for the people in Tanzania. Check out the "Keep On Climbing" website and learn how you could help these people in need as well. Our Daily Bread designs will be donating a portion of the proceeds from this stamp set to help this cause. Thanks to Barry Finlay for allowing ODBD to use his wonderful quote in this stamp set.....we are very grateful and truly inspired!!! Keep On Climbing!!!
A perfect companion to "Keep Climbing" is the "Mountain" set, which includes two amazing quotes and one of my favorite scriptures about faith, Matthew 17:20. I can't wait to use these sets, not only for masculine cards, but for anyone!!
A beautiful new edition to the Garden Collection is the "Lilac" set .....such a gorgeous image and the "Lilac" word stamp is included as well. These stamps will fit perfectly inside the Seed Packet image!
I believe that this next set, "Be Joyful" will be a favorite for many! The floral flourishes are fabulous (I'm in love with these!) and there is such a wonderful variety of sentiments and scriptures...this set is super versatile and super fun!!
I have saved a very special set for last......Scripture Series 3!!! Many of you are familiar with our yearly "Customer Contest", in which scriptures are submitted by YOU, our customers and readers. The scripture verses included in this set are the winners' choices! Please read all about the winners in this post on the ODBD Blog. Each of the five winners received this set and were given the opportunity to share a project featuring their favorite verse. At this time we are able to share only three of the five projects with you, but perhaps we will feature them again at a later time.
Aren't their samples gorgeous?! What a beautiful set......I can't wait to ink it up myself!!!
Thanks for sticking with me through this post today! This may sound like a broken record, but we are really excited about the new releases this month and hope that you are as well! If you have trouble deciding which is your favorite, don't fret! You can pick them all up at once, at a 20% savings, when you order the Bread Basket Bundle! What a deal, huh? Thanks, Kelley!
Stay tuned later this morning for the September New Release Blog Hop, where you will have a chance to win new stamps, plus you will see all of the new sets in action! The hop will begin at 8 am EDT here at the ODBD Blog....see you there!
Have a very blessed weekend!!
