Our Daily Bread Designs Bread Basket

Wednesday, January 9, 2013
Today the Our Daily Bread Designs Bread Basket is celebrating Rick's Birthday.  Happy Birthday Rick!! Rick is Kelley's husband and has been an integral part of the Our Daily Bread Designs team behind the scenes.  In honor of his Birthday, the team is throwing him a Birthday Bash Blog hop.  If you arrived here from Dawn's blog, you are in the right place, if not, you may want to start back at the beginning at the ODBD blog so you don't miss a chance to win or any of the creations along the way.

Kelley is generously offering a $20 gift certificate toward stamps to one blessed hopper.  Check out each link and leave a comment. One of the posts is a hop hot spot and a name will be drawn from that list of comments to win a $20 ODBD store gift certificate.  So, all you have to do is hop along and see all the creations and leave a little love as well as a Happy Birthday wish to Rick on the ODBD blog!  You have until January 11 at 8 p.m. to join us for a chance to win.

Since Rick enjoys the Mighty Sea stamp set, I decided to combine sets making a scene including the Mighty Sea set, Light of the World, and Special Boy.  I had fun masking the stamps, coloring it up, and adding a little texture. I hope you enjoy it Rick!!


Here is a photo of the inside using the sets Light of the World and All Occasion Sentiments.




Here is a picture of the sets used:







Thanks so much for visiting today!  To continue on the hop, your next stop is the fabulous
Sandee!! 

blessings,
