Anniversary Release and Blog Hop!
This week, Our Daily Bread Designs celebrates their 8th Anniversary. And today marks a special day! We have a very special stamp and die release. This release was inspired by one of our very own, Grace Nywening. Grace has been battling cancer this year. And can I just say, this woman is AMAZING! I love her sweet spirit! Even in the midst of her own health battles, she has made time to reach out and love on others in our group! Grace was kind enough to share some of the scriptures, quotes and verses that have meant so much to her this year with ODBD.
And as the founder of ODBD, Kelley Holland, shared with our team...
"Grace explained that you just cannot always just say "get well" to a person in treatment. The person may need more than that, and hence the scriptures that Grace felt would give HOPE and STRENGTH to the person in need. And so I dedicate these sets to Grace and my hope is that God blesses her abundantly and cures her completely!! Amen!"
Amen indeed! God Bless you Grace!
I know our stampers will treasure these as much as I do!
Here are the cards I created using both Grace's Strength stamp set and
coordinating Lavish Layers Die.
And for all those luscious layers...
