Seize the Birthday # 223-Faux or Real Stitching

Hello, It's Barbara and I am your host for this challenge.  I chose Stitching as it is another fun craft that I do. When the weather starts to get cooler, my thoughts turn to the things that my grandmother taught me. I have fond memories of sitting outside with her while she taught me how to stitch. 

For this challenge you can do real or faux stitching, it is up to you. 
Just have fun!


If you're not a toppings kinda person, well.....you can just
stick with our usual "Anything Goes"Birthday!
The choice is yours!


Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!

Winners #221-By the Sea

 Thanks to everyone who participated in our last challenge.  We had some truly fabulous cards using our topping of "By the Sea" along with traditional "Anything Goes" as long as it's Birthday related cards.  Always remember, you don't have to use our topping to be selected as a Challenge Winner or one of the Birthday Honours.  

There were so many cards that caught my attention the past two weeks that I truly spent over an hour on this decision! 

Congratulations!


The softness and white of Chrissie's card had such a calming effect 
on me and I loved the water. 


I just love Carol's Missees girl. Her top is really so cool and if
you didn't go by her blog to see the matching purse you really should. 

You BOTH managed to "Take the Cake" this week!!
We hope you will enjoy your Winner's Badge!

Now, this week's Runner Ups who will be receiving 
"Birthday Honours" are...

Congratulations!


Julia, has so much thought and fun products on this super creative guy card! 

and

I love that Carol decided that you can use a Christmas stamp for any 
celebration including a birthday! 

and

Andrea created such a fabulous water scene with beautiful coloring! 

We hope you ALL will enjoy your "Honours" badge.

Now, stick around because in one hour,
we will be posting our new challenge 
for the next two weeks!
So please stay tuned!

Seize the Birthday #221-By the Sea

Hello and Welcome to our next challenge here at Seize the Birthday!  Before we get to our topping, I have some exciting news to share!  We have a new Design Team member joining our team and I am sure most of you will probably know who she is, as she has been an active participant here at STB for many years.  Please help us in welcoming Julie Peddicord to the STB team! 


Here is a bit about her! 

Hello everyone! I'm Julie (aka Jules). A little about me -- I was born in the Midwest but have called Florida my home for almost forty years. In addition to being Mom to two grown children, I'm Grandma to one and Fur Mom to four. My husband is an extremely patient and supportive man because let's face it, sometimes life is a zoo. My two favorite pastimes include card making and reading, both of which I try to do a little of each day. I've been an active participant at Seize the Birthday since discovering the challenge in July of 2019 and am thrilled to now be part of the team!   

Welcome, Jules! 

    Our "Topping" option this time which was 
selected by me-Nancy is...

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

stick with our usual "Anything Goes"Birthday!
The choice is yours!



Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!

Wait till you see the Design Team's cards!  Be ready to be inspired!
