Happy Birthday Kelley Blog Hop!

 
I am 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, and a special gift as well. 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 some of the DT members have BLOG CANDY hidden along the way!
 
You have until 8pm EDT Oct. 8th to leave a comment on each blog
    The team members who have the candy will be drawing names from those who commented on their post, announcing it on the 10th of October!
    There will also be an announcement here on the ODBD Blog on Oct 10, telling who had the blog candy and who were the chosen winners. You will need to check that post and notify the Design Team member within 48 hours if you won one of the candies!
So now.... here is the order for the hop:
 
Lori  - YOU ARE HERE
 
And here is my card for our beloved MBL (aka Marvelous Boss Lady...)
 


From this set...


Thanks for helping us wish Kelley a Happy Birthday! 
Now I will send you on to the fabulous Becca's Blog.  Blessings...
  
Lori
