ODBD May Release Blog Hop!!

Hey there!!!  Happy Tuesday and it is indeed a happy one because today ODBD is releasing their new stamps for May... YAY!!!  And I'm getting the chance to join in the release day blog hop with the amazingly talented ODBD design team... double YAY!!!!   ODBD is releasing four fabulous sets that will help you create wonderful faith based cards for the graduates in your life and for anyone you know who is going to be retiring.  Before I get to my card I have a few details to share.   The blog hop runs from 8:00 am EDT May 1st until 8:00 pm EDT May 2nd.  Winners will be announced on May 3rd.   Please make sure you leave a comment on all the blogs participating in the blog hop and on the ODBD blog telling us that you completed the hop and if there were any blogs that you were not able to leave a comment on.   The winners will be randomly selected from everyone who completes the hop and answer the question posted on the ODBD blog.   And what can you win??  There will be three winners of a free set and one winner of the entire May ODBD Bread Basket Bundle!!!



Now... if you got here from the blog of the super talented Suzanne (and wasn't her project simply AMAZING??!!), then you are on the right track.  If not, then you will want to head to the ODBD blog and start from the beginning.   For my card I decided to make a feminine graduation card.  I used the Eleanor Roosevelt quote for the outside of my card and then finished the interior of the card with the sentiment "Congratulations Graduate".  I created the sentiment by using the single words "Congratulations" and "Graduate" that come with the set.  The butterfly was created using the ODBD Two Step Butterflies and matching die.  Papers are from the My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Howdy Doody 6x6 pad.  The layout for the card is based on the current CASE study challenge.  Your next stop is the blog of the wildly talented Betty and I just know that she is going to knock your socks off !!!  Happy hoping!!!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI kraft & cream; PP:  My Mind's Eye; Stamps:  ODBD Dreams & Two Step Butterfly; Inks:  SU! So Saffron & Regal Rose, Hero Arts Punch Chalk Ink; Buttons:  PTI; Twine:  May Arts; clip: SU!; Dies:  MFT Fishtail Flag Stax & ODBD Two Step Butterfly die
