Dashes and or Doodling!

Welcome to another great challenge here at Seize the Birthday!  We can't wait to see your take on our Topping option!  Let's go get started...shall we!

    Our "Toppings" option this time around is...

"Dashing and or Doodling"

(So add some interest to your cards and or projects by either hand doodling 
or make some faux dash lines, to look like stitching, with a pen or marker.)

Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!

If you're not a toppings kinda person, well.....you can just

stick with our usual "Anything Goes"Birthday!

The choice is yours!

Welcome Back!

Happy New Year to all of you! 
 We are so glad to be back to share our Birthday creations with you! If you haven't been crafting or have been primarily working on Holiday cards, it's time to put those aside for now and bring out anything else that might inspire you to make a Birthday card. It just so happens that we are starting 2017 with... 
"Anything Goes" 


Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!

We also need to welcome our next Surprise Party Guest for the next two months. We are please to have Rahmat joining us.
Here is a bit about her.

 Hello, I am Rahmat, I am a crafter since childhood, I started with embroidery plus sewing, and then I moved onto paper crafting. Initially it was just making cards, and paper crafts for my kids. A friend of mine saw my cards back in 2013, and forced me to make 10 cards for her, since then a spark was ignited, and I worked my way through finding things in this crafting world, like a little Alice in the Wonderland! It took me sometime to discover my very style, which is CAS mostly, but I do love to try out different techniques from time to time. Embroidery being my first love, I take every possible chance to add a stitch or two on my cards.I started blogging about a bit over 2 years now, and got more and more into card making since then. I am a mother to 2 teens, a teacher by profession, but currently doing substitute teaching. Besides card making, I also enjoy photography, cooking, traveling and I also love to give lessons for free on Indian cooking.

Winners and Some Other News!

Hi Everyone! Thanks so much for joining us these past few weeks.  We know most of you are in the middle of the Holidays and we appreciate you finding the time to join us! Before we get to our winners I have a couple of announcements to make!

First of all, I unfortunately have to say goodbye to one of our Design Team Members.  Jodene will be leaving us, as she took a job outside the home, and she needs to put her attention into that at this time.  Jodene, you will be missed and the door will remain open if you ever wish to come back to us!  
Best of Luck !!

Next, STB is taking the month of December off to spend time with our families and friends for the Holiday Season. We hope you will return to us in January 5th for more Birthday Celebrations along with some brand new Toppings!

Now it's time for our Winners!

Congratulations!
