Kelley's Big 50 Birthday Hop

Hi everyone...Welcome to my world of cards, and I hope you are blessed by visiting me!!


We are so excited today to be posting a 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!!! Some of us on the Design Teams 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 several 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, you might want to, so you don't miss any chances to win! 




  If you got here from Michelle's beautiful card, then you're in the right place if not go back to the ODBD blog, and pick back up from there...I am the last stop on the hop....
  





This is the card I have made for Kelley... It looks a little bluer here then in real life...Hope you like blue Kelley....







And  another angle...the fun thing about flowers, is choice....cause they come in all colours, I added a little sand colour flower soft to the flower centers....

Jan, your card may be last, but NOT least by any means.
These flowers don't need watering, they won't fade and die, they will remain lovely for many years to come & provide Kelly with many happy memories. As will all the good wishes on this hop.
God Bless.
