Happy Birthday, Randi -ODBD Blog Hop!

Julie Warner - https://thewritestuff.justwritedesigns.com

If you arrived here from Lisa’s blog, you are in the right place. If not, you may want to start at the ODBD Blog so you won’t miss anything. Today, we have a special Happy Birthday Blog Hop for our dear friend and DT member, Randi! In her blessed life, she has faced so very much and if you’d like to read a little about her recent battle, please take a moment to read the story behind the ODBD stamp set, Randi’s Song, named in her honor. Kelley will be giving away a Happy Birthday set to 3 people chosen from the comments.  All you have to do is hop along and leave a Happy Birthday wish for Randi on the ODBD Blog. And if you feel so inclined, you can leave her a Happy Birthday wish on her blog: Randi’s Blog. She hasn’t been able to create in a while, but she does stay connected and I’m sure she’ll see your message.

This is my birthday card & bookmarks to Randi. I hope she like them! I used several different sets and dies to create it and the double sided bookmarks. For the daisy background, I used markers to color in the background and add just a hint of color to the daisies. The sentiment was die cut, sponged and layered on top of two Memory Box die cuts. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.
