Happy Big 50 Birthday Kelley and more!


Hello my friends!!!  I am so excited today to be posting a special Birthday Wish to Our Daily Bread designs owner and my friend... Kelley Holland!  This is a very special birthday for Kelley, as it's the BIG 50!!!  Some of us on the Design Teams have gotten together a Birthday Blog Hop for Kelley.  We're so happy to have you join us on this hop... and we hope you will visit each post and leave a comment, because some of the DT members have  BLOG CANDY hidden along the way!  You will have to leave a comment on each blog and the team members who have the candy will be drawing names from those who commented on their post, announcing it on the 10th of October!  There will also be a post on the ODBD Blog on Oct. 10th giving the names of the winners and the blogs that held the candy! So if you didn't start at the Our Daily Bread designs Blog, you might want to, so you don't miss any chances to win!  Each of us will be sending our cards to Kelley... so they may be showing up on her display boards if you happen to be going to any of the stamp shows that ODBD participates in!

If you got here from Angie's Awesome Blog,  you are in the right place!


For my card today, I used the Be Joyful Set to create my floral backgrounds, and the birthday sentiment, as well as the Mwaah! inside.  This is such a fun set to work with and since I know Kelley loves all things PINK, I went with pink flowers for this card, coloring them with Copics.  I used Spellbinders Labels 1 Grand, and Decorative Labels 1 to create this card, layering on Flourishes White card stock.  The tag is Spellbinders Floral Tags and is so fun, as it cuts part of the flower and leaves out, allowing you to pop them up a bit for dimension!  I sponged with green and added a touch of Lemon Flower Soft to the center.  The ribbon is May Arts Silk, my absolute favorite!  The bling is K&Co.   Here is the inside:



Thanks so much for stopping by!  If you are hopping along with our Birthday Hop... your next stop is Dawn!

Kelley.... HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you, and may God bless you with many more!!!  You are officially OVER the proverbial hill now... so put on your helmet, coz you're gonna pick up speed from here on!  LOL!  Just kidding... they say the new 50 is the old 30 so enjoy all those extra years you young thing you!!!!  Mwaaah!
