ODBD January Challenge

Hello and Happy New Year to everyone! It’s Kristie here, and I am taking over the Our Daily Bread Design blog challenge. Let’s give a special thank you Marianne for an awesome year of challenges!

Once again, we have over 50 entries for the December challenge, so ODBD will be sponsoring two boxes of gorgeous cards to go to our heroes. Great job everyone! Congratulations to the winners of the  ODBD gift certificates.

Winners are chosen using Random.org. Please email me at eponinekc(at)msn(dot)com to claim your prize.  Have fun shopping ladies! Although, our deployed troops get the best prize since they will recieve two boxes of gorgeous cards shipped for free! Thank you ODBD for your continued support of our heroes.

Now onto the first ODBD challenge for 2014. The challenge for January is to use Stripes on your card.  Here’s a wonderful card example for inspiration.


 I can’t wait to see what everyone creates. If you are new to making cards for Operation Write Home, go HERE to see the OWH cardmaking guidelines.

Be sure to link up below by the end of the month to be included in the drawing for two $25 gift certificates from our great sponsor Our Daily Bread Designs. Let’s see how quickly we can reach our goal of 50 card entries.

    • Hi Linda, do you have a blog and you are wondering how to get the link here? Or how to start a blog? Let us know and we will help!

  5. Loretta Miller

    I don’t understand – do I have to have a blog to participate? Can I just submit a picture?

    • Hi Loretta, if you do not have a blog, you can create a free Flickr account and post the link from there to your card. Hope that helps!

    • I don’t have a blog either so I just post pictures of my cards to Pinterest
