Seize the Birthday #180-Layer It

Happy New Year and welcome to Seize the Birthday!  I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday Season and you are as ready as we are to get inky again and work on growing your stock of Birthday cards for the year.  Before I get to our topping, I would like to welcome our new Surprise Party Guest for the next two months. I believe it's someone you will definitely be familiar with! 
Joyce Mehrberg
Here is a little bit about her...
Hi, I am a wife and mother to two girls in college.   An escapee from the corporate world and aspiring empty nester.  When I am not volunteering for one cause or another, I can usually be found in my craft room, at the gym, walking my dog, knitting or curled up with 
a good book.

Welcome Joyce!  Now let's go check 
out our topping! 


    Our "Toppings" option this time was selected by Ashwini. Speaking of Ashwini, she is also responsible for our "NEW" look on our blog that we all are very excited about!

(Anything layered works - stenciling, stamping or even layered cardstocks.
 Lots of options to choose from!)
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!

Happy New Year and a New Look!

Happy New Year one and all!  Can you believe it's 2020 already?  The team and I are very excited to get back to creating again. It was a great break, but I am really getting the itch to get stamping again, how about you?  Do you take some time for yourself over the Holidays to relax?  It was great to unplug for a bit!

What do you think of our "New" look? All thanks to Ashwini our Design Team member for her creative work.  I am super excited about it! I love a fresh start in the New Year, don't you? It's almost as good as cleaning out the closets! We also have a new graphic below that we would love for you to display on your blog.


I hope you will pop back in tomorrow to check out the first topping of the New Year and to see who our Surprise Party Guest 
is going to be! 

See you then!
