Happy Birthday, Rick!!

Today I want to wish my husband of 30 years a happy birthday...Happy Birthday, Rick!!! I love you!!! xxoo
This photo shows Rick at one of our shows with 2 of our employees, Magali and Diane.

We have a special Birthday Blog Hop for you today in honor of Rick's special day!  Since Rick retired last August he has totally  immersed himself into the ODBD world.  He has taken on the ODBD wholesale division with a real gusto, and is constantly working on all aspects of the business, including show coordinator! Many of you have met Rick at one of the 25-30 rubber stamp and scrapbook shows we exhibit at each year!!! 

As part of the Blog Hop, there will be a HOT SPOT where one random commenter will be chosen to win a $20 Gift Certificate for stamps in the ODBD store! You will have until 1/11/13 8:00 pm EST to leave your comments on these designer's blogs:
Sandee

Thanks for visiting today and please enjoy the blog hop!!

Blessings,

What a great blog hop-loved every minute! Thanks to all who participated- wonderful cards. Rick must feel very special! Happy Birthday, Rick!

JD said...

I missed the actual blog hop. Didn't have time to do it, but I did get a chance to see all the great cards done for Rick...all beautifully done. But since I had the great opportunity to meet both Kelly and Rick at two stamp conventions (Both are very gracious, and wonderful to talk to) I had to make sure that I at least wished Rick a Happy Belated birthday!

Kathy Lorcan said...

Awww, I missed Rick's birthday and the blog hop.
Anyway, better late than never so here's my warm belated happy birthday wishes for your husband Rick.
Have fun!
