Happy Thursday.....

and welcome to a surprise Blog Hop for one of Our Daily Breads Designs behind the scenes man!!! Do you ever wonder who cuts and mounts ODBD's stamps and helps to get orders shipped out? Well, it is no other than Josh, who celebrates his Birthday today!! 

                            Happy Birthday, Josh!!!!

May God bless you with many more Birthdays and many more years working for ODBD!!
So, in honor of Josh we are having a little Blog Hop to make his day a special day. The Hop starts at the  ODBD Blog so if you have started there and arrived at my Blog from Debi, you are good to go. If not, please start at ODBD Blog.

 Shhhhh, let me tell you a secret, if you complete the Hop and  leave Josh lots of Birthday wishes, there will be a prize!!! Kelley is offering a gift certificate of $15.00 to not one but THREE people!!! So, please make sure you start at the ODBD Blog and leave each of the participating designers some love and maybe it will be you that wins one of those gift certificates ;D;D. Make sure you return to the ODBD Blog to let us know you've completed the Hop.

My card for Josh is a CAS one, but I hope it will put a smile on his face anyhow.


Birthday Blessings to you, Josh!!!

Hi Sabrina~

I want to share a thought that I had recently. CAS cards are not "less than," in my opinion, of course, they are not "less worthy." They are a different style! THAT's ALL! You could take an amazing Monet, Matisse and Rembrandt...all different styles, but all masterpieces. Right? Same thing? I have recently come to see that my style is "CAS with a few embellishments." I wish that I could do the amazingly fancy cards of you and becca and chris and grace and well, everyone here at ODBD. However, with my 11 months of stamping under my belt I am not there yet.

So, be proud and know the recipient will enjoy the CAS card or the Fancy-Shmancy card...you made it!

It is wonderful, by the way...how do you curl the edges up like that? Please email me at SCS and tell me, I have wanted to know for 11 months now! LOL

Be blessed, my Sister-in-Christ!

He IS Able,
Traci S.

p.s. I think you would like the give-away at the He IS Able blog. SHHH!

Sabrina, I so enjoy eying your beautiful creations. Its funny, because I recently received an order from ODBD, and Josh, had written a little Thank You note on my packing slip. I thought it was such a nice personal touch, and I did wonder who Josh was. Well now I know! Anyway, stop by my blog, I have a surprise for you. http://www.creatingmypeace.com/2010/12/stylish-blogger-award.html

Oh wow, I love this CAS card. It has such a warm rustic feel to it. I love the colours you've used and all the distressed edges.

Mary said...

Sabrina, your card is so beautiful.All of the distressing that you did and the monochromatic color makes this a perfect card for a male. The image that you used is awesome. I do not remember it and will be going back to ODBD to check it out. I have a lot of ODBD sets and plan on using them after January. I miss stamping a lot ut unfortunately this past year has been very packed with other things for me to do. I love visiting your blog and seeing what you are up to. I hope that you and your family are all doing well.

Oh and Happy Birthday to Josh. :) Im not sure I will be able to complete the blog hop but will give it a try. :)

Hugs,
Mary
