Sweet Little Hummer

Our Daily Bread Designs, ODBDSLC195, Bee Balm, Hummingbird, ODBD Custom Hummingbird Die, All Occasion Sentiments, Seed Packet, CherylQuilts, Designed by Cheryl Scrivens

This is the third week of our celebration of the sixth anniversary of Our Daily Bread Designs. This week marks the anniversary Our Daily Bread Designs opened for business. So let's celebrate by using six of one item on your card (such as 6 layers, 6 yes, 6 patterns, 6 words, 6 letters, 6 scallops, 6 items from ODBD).  Be creative and have fun! 

I decided to use six ODBD items, but it also qualifies for six layers if you include this cute little hummingbird! I used the Bee Balm Flower inside the Seed Packet stamp with another sentiment from that set at the bottom. I used "thinking of you" from All Occasion Sentiments and then added the sweet Hummingbird with matching Hummingbird die.

More than six years ago, a seed was planted in Kelley's mind to start a Christian stamp company, and I actually purchased the very first stamp set, The Light of the World in April 2008. Over the last six years, with lots of hard work and God's help, ODBD has grown and its products are sold throughout the world, spreading the Word of God through beautiful Scripture verses and images. Thank you, Kelley, for all that you and Rick have done over the years to make ODBD what it is and for allowing all of us to be able to make cards that share God's love. Like the hummingbird is attracted to the sweetness of flower nectar, so we should be attracted to God's Word. May we all desire the sweetness of God's Word.

How sweet are Thy words to my taste!
Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth.
Psalm 119:103
