ODBD's June Release and Blog Hop!

Welcome to the June Our Daily Bread Designs Release Blog Hop!
 
If you arrived here from the delightful Julie's blog, you are in the right place!  If not, you might want to return to the ODBD Blog and start from there so you don't miss a thing! 
 
Briefly, here are the details of the hop:
 
The Hop will run from June 1st 8:00am to June 2nd 8:00pm EDT
Winners will be announced June 3rd on the ODBD blog
There will be  FOUR PRIZES of $15, $20, $30 and $40 gift certificates redeemable for STAMPS in the ODBD Store.
**Must be redeemed within the month of June**  
 
To qualify to win, all you have to do is hop to each of the designers, leave a comment and return to the ODBD Blog to tell us you completed the hop, and let us know of any difficulties you had along the way.
 
Now... on to my project details...  I have two cards to share today using 3 of the new sets...
 
The first card (an easel card) uses Home of the Free for the scripture panel (shown below the eagle) and Some Gave All for the eagle image and sentiment shown on the bottom panel. 
 
 
Here's a better side view.  I stamped the eagle on coordinating DP and lightly colored the image with colored pencils.  The stars have just a dab of glitter glue to reflect light. 
 
 
Here are photos of the sets... 
 
 
 
 
I can't imagine how your heart wouldn't swell with pride when using these sets!  We are so very blessed to live in such a wonderful country! 
 
And if those aren't darling enough, there's this precious image, Precious Girl colored with Copics...
 
 
 
So what do you think?  I love them all!  ;-) 
With July 4th coming up and a bevy of baby showers and dedications, these gems will come in handy! 
From here, you will hop to the fabulous Kathy's Blog . 
 
Thanks for stopping by!  Blessings!!!

Love the pearls and bow on the precious girl - such a sweet card. I especially liked the antique look of the eagle - with the more colorful background to bring him out. I like the easel design - encouragement to display the card past the holiday! What a fabulous set!
