HAPPY BIRTHDAY..........

Happy Sunday everyone!

I am so excited today to be posting another special Birthday Wish to Our Daily Bread Designs owner, Kelley Holland!  This is a very special birthday for Kelley, as it's the BIG 50!!!  

HAPPY BIRTHDAY KELLEY! I HOPE YOU HAVE A FABULOUS DAY AND MAY ALL YOUR DREAMS AND WISHES COME TRUE!!!

Some of us on the Design Teams have gotten together a Birthday Blog Hop for Kelley, and a special gift as well. 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 some of the DT members have BLOG CANDY hidden along the way!

If you came to my blog from TOSH's BLOG then you are right on track if not please start at the ODBD Blog to follow the entire hop! 

Here is my card for the birthday girl.....





I pulled out the beautiful ODBD Lilac Set and for the inside I used the beautiful ODBD Happy Birthday Set. The images were inked in Memento Tuxedo Black and the Lilac image was colored with these Copic Markers ~ BV000, BV00, BV15, BV17, C1 and C5. Next I embellished the card with the PTI Plum Pudding CS, DP, Ribbon and Button. At last I added the Halfback Pearls

My color inspiration for this card came from this weeks *The Play Date Cafe* ~ PDCC152 and the layout if from the Deconstructed Sketch #72 and the Moxie Fab World ~ Make a Birthday card.






















HERE IS HOW YOU CAN WIN SOME GOODIES!!!


  • You  have until 8pm EDT Oct. 8th to leave a comment on each blog
  • The team members who have the candy will be drawing names from those who commented on their post, announcing it on the 10th of October

    Silke,
    You are a girl after my own heart; love embossing, simplistic clean cut cards such as this and LOVE lilacs, being from NY originally. They always bloomed around Memorial Day at home. None in FLorida where I am now. Kelly should love this card.
