Happy Birthday Josh!!!!

BD-for-Josh3

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THE ODBD DEC. RELEASE BLOG HOP PLEASE SCROLL DOWN ONE POST!

If you got here from Randi's blog for Josh's BD Blog Hop, you are in the right place!

Today is a special day at Our Daily Bread designs! Today is Josh's birthday! For those of you who have been to any of the craft shows where Our Daily Bread designs has been present... it's likely you have met Josh! Josh is Kelley's right hand man at ODBD! He is a big part of the company's success and helps out with cutting the rubber, mounting stamps, picking orders, and helping set up, tear down and run register at the ODBD booth just to name a few of the many things he does. Many of us on the team have had the honor of meeting Josh in person and he is a real sweet heart, and lets not even talk about how cute he is!!!! So on his special day we wanted to surprise him with a little blog hop! The sticks in the bread basket have all gotten their thinking caps on and made a "guy" card just for him. They'll be snail mailed shortly... but for today... we wanted to give him his very own blog hop!

Kelley is honoring Josh by offering up 3 gift certificates for $15.00 to three blessed people who complete his birthday hop, leaving comments for each participant, and ending with a comment on the Our Daily Bread designs Blog, on Josh's Birthday post! How cool is that!!!

Your card is a visual FEAST! I love the "glow" that you created around the focal layer, as if the lighthouse has LIT UP the card!!

And, look at that tiny nautical wheel hanging from the rustic cord! What a perfect detail!!

Lorelie Kim said...

I ADORE the card you made for Josh!! Loving the sponged edges and how you made the water/waves look so realistic!! What I adore most of all is the great family picture of you, Kell and the Birthday Boy!!

Grace this is just so beautiful for a maculine card, beautiful. I love the touch of the charm! I also agree with Dawn....it needs to be framed. Maybe Josh will do that. LOL Thank you for sharing.

christy said...

Great card mom, I love the colors, the verse, and the lighthouse

Pati said...

Wow! Very pretty blues and golds in the paper and your coloring!! Love the white caps, very realistic with the lighthouse! Ok, let's NOT talk about how cute Josh is : )

Cook22 said...

Another great on-the-job photo. And wow, wow to the card. First I was drawn to the sea (I always like this image anyway as we grew up by the sea) and then I was awed by the amazing sky and sentiment panel. Fantastic!!

Stephanie said...

Wow! This card is beautiful! Your coloring is fantastic!! I love all the layers too.

Traci S. said...

Hi Grace,

I love the photo of the 3 of you! How wonderful! You make him sound like Superman!

Your card is stunning, as I knew it would be. I love the background...the way you have the light from the lighthouse reaching out beyond that paper and beyond...and off the card all together! I love this set. And, I think it makes a great Birthday Card for anyone, but especially a "real sweetheart...and someone that we can't even imagine how cute he is!"

He is blessed to be receiving a card by you. You are both blessed to know each other.

He IS Able,
Traci S.

p.s. Grace, would you please consider raising the size of the font of the Verification word. I already wear glasses!

Wow! This is absolutely stunning! I love lighthouses and damask and putting them together in this way is just genius. One of my favorite things about ODB is the Christian element. Josh is so lucky to be working with such wonderful peeps who make him works of art worthy of a frame for his birthday cards!

Darlene said...

Oh wow - this is gorgeous. I love these colours. I also love lighthouses and this is a beautiful one and even better with this verse paired up with it. Your colouring is wonderful. The ships' steering wheel is a perfect accent for this card.
