Monday, August 20, 2012
Hello Friends!! Today several of the "Bread Basket" members at Our Daily Bread Designs are having a blog hop to wish our dear friend and dt sister Randi a Happy Birthday!! 

If you arrived from Silke's blog you are in the right place, if not, you may want to start at the beginning for more inspiration and a chance to win one of three prizes.  Kelley is offering three different hoppers who leave comments on each of our blogs, who wish Randi a Happy Birthday, and leave a comment on the ODBD Blog one of her Happy Birthday sets. This hop will end on Wednesday, August 22 at 8 p.m.

 Randi is a very special lady who has been suffering with cancer.  She is an AMAZING woman with a real testimony for the Lord despite all the hardship she has gone through.  She is an inspiration to all who know her.  I am blessed to have her as a friend.  Many may remember the stamp set Randi's Song that Kelley released in Randi's Honor.  Well today we are also having a hop in her honor.  Happy 60th Birthday Randi!!! We love you and miss you!!!!!!  

The card which I have made for Randi uses the Small Sweet William set from Our Daily Bread Designs.  The sentiment is stamped on twill ribbon. The sweet william image is stamped on designer paper and cut out with the Spellbinders Blossom 3 dies.  All the designer paper is from Prima Botanicals and Prima Sun Kiss.  The envelope is made with kraft cs and the Eyelet Circles from Spellbinders.  The leaves are sponged and cut out with Spellbinders Vine Borders.


Here are some of the stamps and dies and used for this creation:

 I hope you have enjoyed my project today!  Now I'll send you to the next stop on our Happy Birthday Randi hop is  the talented and sweet Dawn.

Happy Birthday Randi!! May God Bless you!!! HUGS!

Thanks so much for visiting.... and have a wonderful week!!!
hugs,
