And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

For the Love of God's Love Blog Hop


Welcome to Our Daily Bread Design's Alumni Team's bi-monthly For the Love Blog Hop This week the Alumni team along with some of the ODBD designers are featuring a hop 

For the Love of God's Love! 

If you've come from the amazingly talented Sabrina, you are at the right stop...if you've just happened to stop by, you might want to start out at the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog so you don't miss any of the wonderful eye candy!  

Check out each link and leave a comment. If you get lost along the way, check the ODBD Blog for a full list of links.  One of the posts is a hop hot spot and a name will be drawn from that list of comments to win a $15 ODBD store gift certificate.  So, all you have to do is hop along and see all the creations and leave a little love!  You have until Wednesday, February 27th, at 6 pm.  Enjoy all the beautiful designs featuring For the Love of God's Love!

I'm so excited to be participating in my first ODBD Hop! I've chosen the Love One Another stamp set for my sample and decided to create an Accordion Fold to display all the verses in the set.



Creative Nugget:  Here is my sample, closed and tied with some dyed wrinkled ribbon.  To give the card stability, the front and back were made by cutting two pieces of chipboard with the Labels One Die and covering both sides with designer paper.




The inside panels feature more of the scripture verses included in the set as well as the pretty intertwining heart wreath image which was colored with Copic Markers.


A variety of heart punches, dies, lace, twine, pearls, and ribbon were used to embellish each panel.  


The scripture verses in this set are perfect for sending a little love to a special someone and to remind us that all love comes from God, who is LOVE!  

Your next stop on the hop is the very sweet and very creative, Angie!

Thanks so much for stopping by...enjoy the remainder of the hop!

Hugs,
Cathymac
