Our Daily Bread design's December Release Day

Good morning! I would like to introduce you to one of Our Daily Bread design's newest sets, "Peace & Joy," released TODAY! "Peace & Joy" features two different sized snowflakes, as well as two Christmas sentiments and the Bible verse, John 1:17, "Every good and perfect gift is from above."

If you have come here from Grace's blog, you are following the blog hop list! If you would like to start at the very beginning of the hop, be sure to use THIS LINK to Our Daily Bread design's Blog!
K & Company "Black & Ivory" decorator paper was used in this design, along with Stampin' Up's Basic Black and Confetti Cream cardstocks.

I stamped the snowflake image with Versafine Black Onyx ink, then heat embossed it with Stampin' Up's Black Detail embossing powder. Spellbinder Square dies were used to cut the image panel, and a Kaiser Black Jet rhinestone was added to the center for a bit of glimmer. A May Art bow wraps this design up!

Like last month, we are going to have a message with hidden words on our blogs. My word is "in." Please collect our names and the words we have, which will form a special message. Then return to the ODBD blog and post a comment that they have commented on every blog and collected the secret message, and then email Grace (nywening@yahoo.com) with the answers.

For this Release Blog Hop, Kelley has generously offered to give TWO lucky winners their choice of one free set! Winners will be chosen by Random from the correct emails that Grace receives by Dec.2, 8PM EST.

Also, keep your eyes open for new monthly challenges beginning in January!

Now make sure that you head to Angella C's blog!

Be sure to check back later today, I will have another December 1st posting!
