It’s A Birthday Blog Hop!!

Our Daily Bread designs

Wishing a Happy Birthday to
my friend and ‘boss’, Kelley, of
Our Daily Bread designs.

The Breadsticks got together with this surprise hop, each making a card and sending it to Kell. Mail day should be fun today!!

Kelley… I hope your day is the best! Don’t work….put your feet up and RELAX!

For my card I used a combination of Fall Flower Pumpkin, Sentiments Collections II, Custom Pumpkin and Flowers die, Decorative Corners die, Fancy Foliage die and Elegant Ovals die.

I paper pieced the pumpkin  stamping the flowers twice again on white cardstock with Memento Rich Cocoa, coloring with Copics, hand cutting a few and popping them up.

The card front is cut at an angle. The pumpkin, foliage and sentiment are mounted on Spellbinders Adorning Squares and Twisted Metal Tags & Accents. The DP is DCWV Amber Autumn.

Enjoy the hop! And thanks for stopping!!

Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It's simple,
yet effective. A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appeal.
I must say you have done a excellent job with this.

Also, the blog loads very quick for me on Internet explorer.
Exceptional Blog!
