Some changes with Our Daily Bread Designs' designers....
  • Angella Crockett and Audrey Hiltke are joining the the Alumni Team while our friend, Cathy McCauley is moving to the Design Team!
  • Deb Saaranen is on break from the Alumni team for a few months but will return soon!
  • We bid our dear friend, Kathy Roney a fond farewell.  She is leaving the Challenge Team and we will miss her!!  Love ya Kathy!!!
  • We also say goodbyes to Connie McCotter and Betty Wright who are leaving the Alumni Team!  They will be missed!  Connie and Betty have been on our team for many years and Betty served as the Alumni Team Coordinator for a couple years!  I know we will see you in blogland ladies!
  • And please wish Cheryl Scrivens a big bread basket welcome as she joins us on the Challenge Team!!

I have a couple of cards for you this time including one with some (ahem) non-traditional wedding colors.  My step-son and his fiancé are getting married Sunday July 7th and our grandson to be picked the colors.  Since Jake is all about a certain tractor brand...  we will have a distinct green and yellow color scheme....  How can I tell the little guy I prefer New Holland blue????  :-) 
 
 
 
 
And then there is this card featuring gold embossing on black card stock.  A very simple scheme but elegant nonetheless.  I embossed the doves on a separate piece and fussy cut the image before adding to the top of the faux cake.  It adds just a bit of dimension and makes the entire cake appear to "pop" off the page.... 


 
 
 
 Hope you enjoyed the projects I had to share and don't forget to check out all the others for your chance to win! 
 
Please join my "sister sticks" for more fabulous projects....

Lori, my sweet friend, both of your cards are beautiful and what a sweet idea to let your grandson to be choose the colors. It does not always have to be traditional...especially in a little boys eyes. ;D I really love how you've framed the sentiment with that pretty lace and the golden embossing on your second card is just perfect! Hope all is well!! Hugs and blessings, Sabrina
