Today is Kelley, owner of Our Daily Bread Designs, birthday and the team is having a hop in her honor!!!  Today she turns 50!!! Happy Birthday Kelley!!!
Some of us on the Design Teams at ODBD 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 a few of the DT members have some 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 Oct. 10th!  
*There will also be a Winners Post on the ODBD Blog on Oct. 10th giving the names of the winners and links to the blogs that held the candy! 

So if you didn't start at the Our Daily Bread designs Blog and arrive here from the talented Dawn's blog, you might want to, so you don't miss any chances to win! 

Here is the card I created for Kelley:


This card is created using the Harvest Blessings sunflowers cut out with the custom ODBD Sunflower die. The sentiment is from the Be Joyful Stamp set and is cut and matted with Spellbinders Classic and Scalloped Ovals.  The background of the card is created with the Spellbinders Lattice die, A-2 Polka Dots, and the A-2 Matting Basics.

Thanks for joining in wishing Kelley a Happy Birthday, the next stop on the hop is the sweet Debi's blog.




Thanks for stopping by today!! I hope you are somehow inspired by my creation!!  I greatly appreciate all your sweet comments!!

Have a blessed Day!!!



hugs and blessings,
