Welcome to Our Daily Bread Designs' February Release and Blog Hop!

Good morning!  Welcome to Our Daily Bread Designs' February release.  This month I have 3 projects to share, two cards and a wonderful Valentine treat box.  If you need to make cards and/or gifts for your sweetheart, you have found just the right release.  And to make browsing our design teams' projects even more special, three winners will be randomly chosen from the comments left on the designers' blogs.  The winners will receive a $25 gift certificate to the ODBD Store, to be used toward the purchase of Our Daily Bread Designs' stamps.  You have until February 2, 2014 at 9PM EST to make  your comments!  The winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on February 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you are a winner! 
 
I will begin my post with the two cards I created...  the first a patriotic beauty...
 

and the second with a decidedly traditional Valentine feel...

 
and the products you see...
 
Heart and Soul (inks - red and blue)
 
 
(Versamark and white embossing
powder with die cut overlay)
 

 
and a couple of amazing new custom dies...
 

 
and
 



 
Plus check out this bonus project treat box I created using the
Ornate Hearts die, chipboard and designer paper...  Look closely and you will find another die from a previous release, Fancy Foliage...
 
 
Peek inside and you find the sentiment from the Bless Your Heart stamp release with the previous ODBD Die release,  
Antique Labels and Border Dies...
 
 
Don't those kisses look yummy?  I can't wait to give this to my sweetie...  Now don't forget to visit all my design team sisters and leave them some love!  You just might win your very own ODBD gift certificate to purchase some of these fabulous new stamps... 

Until next time... 
 
Blessings...

Oh my goodness, your heart box with attached lid is WONDERFUL! Love it! It could be used for so many different things! It and your cards really show up the wide range of looks you can get with this release of stamps and dies. Such different looks: the lacy feminine box, the more vintage look of the patriotic card, and the vibrant valentine's card. ALL VERY NICE!
