Happy Birthday Kelley!




Hello friends!  Today the ODBD Design Teams have joined together to do a surprise Birthday Blog Hop for ODBD owner, Kelley!  Her actual birthday is tomorrow, so maybe THIS year, since we are posting a day early in order to not double post on the ODBD Blog tomorrow, maybe she will be surprised!

If you arrived here from the talented and sweet Sandee's Blog, you are in the right place! If not you might want to start at the ODBD Blog so you don't miss anything!

I have used one of my favorite ODBD sets, Birthday Blessings for my image, and Birthday Doily for my sentiment.  I have also used the ODBD Custom Doily Die, Beautiful Borders Die, and the smallest tag from the ODBD Custom Recipe Card and Tags Die set.  The designer paper is Garden Party (Pebbles) and the base is Neenah Solar White.  I colored the image with Copics and fussy cut it out so I could mount it on the doily.  I used Wink of Stella Gold to trim parts of the cup and saucer, in honor of my grandmother's china, a beautiful Haviland china with a dainty pink floral pattern that's trimmed with gold.  I now have that china and it's so thin you can actually see through the cups, but I treasure every single piece!  This image often makes me think of all the feminine china pieces she had, and what a beautiful table she set! 

Anyhoo.... Happy Birthday Kelley!!!  I hope you have a wonderful Birthday celebration, and that God blesses you with many more healthy happy years!!!  The "breadsticks" all love ya!!!

Here are the ODBD products I used today:
