Happy Birthday Rick Blog Hop!

Our Daily Bread designs stamps, Special Boy, Grace Nywening


Hello friends!
Today is a special day at Our Daily Bread designs!  It's Rick Holland's Birthday!  If you've been to any of the craft shows... I'm sure you've met Rick... more than likely working the cash register.  He is Kelley's husband, and is an integral part of ODBD!  So today, some of the design team members made a card for him, and are doing a special hop for his special day.  If you got here from Sweet Sabrina's Blog, you are in the right place!  If not, you should go back to the ODBD blog,to start from the beginning!
First a few hop details:
  •  This hop will run from 8am EST Jan 9th until 8pm EST Jan 11.
  • There will be a HOT SPOT hidden along the way, so be sure to leave a comment on each blog, because one name will be drawn from one of the blogs comments to win a $20.00 gift certificate toward stamps in the ODBD Store!  
Now.. a little about my card :  I used this month's new release, Special Boy for my image and sentiment, but I split the sentiment up so I could put it in little hand cut banners.  My papers are mostly Basic Grey Marjolaine, though there are a few scraps of other papers in there too.  I did sew my patches and sponged with THoltz Brushed Corduroy.  The image itself is stamped with Memento ink and colored with Copics.  I'm thrilled to have this new set... perfect for my teenage grandson who is currently rebuilding a pickup truck with his dad, and who has a birthday in a few days!  So this one is for Rick... but I have another to share shortly that is going to him!

Our Daily Bread designs stamps, Special Boy,

Rick.... Happy Birthday!!!  I thought about using "Let's Roll" for my sentiment, but since you are over the official hill, I didn't want you to pick up speed on the way down...(hahaha)  so I am simply sending you Blessings on your special day, and I hope in some small way that we have brought joy to your day!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Your next stop is  our talented graphic designer, Michelle Laycock!
