Leaves

Welcome to another great challenge here at Seize the Birthday! Thanks to everyone who played with 
us last time!  We sure do appreciate it!

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

Perhaps I should have picked snow since half of the country is 
seeing a ton of white stuff already.  When I selected this topping a few 
months back, I assumed we would still be in FALL. LOL
Mother nature had a different plan.  
Whatever you do please be safe out there!

Anyhoo,  Can't wait to see your creations!



Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!


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

stick with our usual "Anything Goes"Birthday!


The choice is yours!


The Design Team really hit a home run this time!

New Member and a Reminder!


The Seize the Birthday Design team would love 
to introduce you to our Newest Team Member!


Let's learn a little bit about her!
Hi, my name is Hannelie Bester and I was born in South-Africa.  I lived there my whole life until 6 years ago when we moved to the United Arab Emirates (Abu Dhabi) because of a job opportunity that was offered to my husband. I started blogging soon after we moved here... hence the title of my blog! (Desert Diva) Living so far away from my loved ones made me realized how much I love them. Card making helps me cope with being far away from home, and challenges my right brain, since I am a left brained, logical, and analytical pharmacist at heart!  My card making style is CAS graphic most of the time!

  We are all thrilled to have Hannelie joining the STB team!!
Please help us in welcoming her by heading on over to her
blog and leaving her some LOVE!
Welcome Hannelie we hope you will like it here!

She will be joining us for our next challenge!!


Now, we still have
a great challenge going on here at STB...
 Here is a link to get you there!

You have until Tuesday, November 18th@ 9AM (PST).

Go on and be creative...we would love to have you!

Seeing Orange and A Farewell!

Welcome to another great challenge here at Seize the Birthday!
Thanks to everyone who played with us last time,
we sure do appreciate it!

Before we get to our challenge I need to make an announcement! Susie one of our Talented Design Team Members is stepping down from STB after this challenge.   We all understand completely that life sometimes takes on a new path and direction and she is on such a healthy and positive path!    We are sure happy for her! She has been a joy to work with and will be missed! She is going to be picking our winners from this challenge so let's make it extra hard on her and fill Mr. Linky to the brim....shall we?  Don't be a stranger Susie!!!

Now let us see what you can do with this Challenge!

Our "Toppings" option this time is...

Monochromatic- Orange
(What that basically means is your card must exude orange as it's primary color
with just a hint of other colors mixed in.)



Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!


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

stick with our usual "Anything Goes"Birthday!


The choice is yours!
