Happy Monday, everyone! Today is a very special day at Our Daily Bread designs.....we are having a special Happy Birthday Blog Hop for our dear designer sister, Randi Barrett!
Those of you who have been with us for a couple of years know and love Randi, but for those new readers, let me introduce one of the most faithful, inspirational, beautiful souls I know......Randi Barrett!! Randi has survived several bouts with cancer throughout her life and is traveling down the same road again now, with the Lord by her side as always. In October of 2010, a beautiful new stamp set, "Randi's Song", was dedicated to our dear Randi.....read all about it HERE. Randi' unwavering faith and strength throughout this trial continue to inspire and lift up our team and we wanted to give something back by having a birthday celebration. We love you, Randi girl!!!
My blog is the first stop during the Blog Hop.....if you get lost along the way, please go back to the ODBD Blog, where there is a full link list. Once you have visited and left a comment for each "Breadstick" listed, please head back to the ODBD Blog to let us know you have finished and to leave birthday wishes and special prayers for Randi. There will be three winners drawn from the comments to receive one of ODBD's birthday stamp sets! You have until Wednesday, 8 pm EDT, to complete the hop.....have a great hop!!
Some of my favorite cards from Randi's gallery were created with shades of turquoise, so I started out with some Pool Party cardstock (Stampin Up), SEI "Mist" Chalk Ink for the "Vine Background" and beautiful quote from "Bookmark Prayers". Since the chalk ink does not dry right away, I like to pour clear embossing powder over it and heat emboss it. This not only seals in the ink, but gives it a beautiful finish as well. The edges of both panels were inked in "Blush Blossom". So not to cover up the "Vine Background", I kept the embellishments simple: Cheery Lynn Designs "Fanciful Flourish", May Arts Crocheted Lace and Satin Ribbon (tied with a Bow Easy), and Zva Creative Pearls.
