Seize the Birthday Sketch Challenge #9-{Sponsored by Uniko Stamps} and Welcome to Dawn Easton!

Welcome to Seize the Birthday! We are working on creating both masculine and feminine birthday cards this year! This week we are looking for a feminine birthday card using our sketch. The design team has some wonderful inspiration for you! Won't you join us and build your stash of birthday cards?!

This month we are thrilled to be sponsored by the Uniko Studio. Uniko Stamps is generously offering a prize each week in March to our weekly winner...the prize is this stamp set called Bright Butterflies! Thank you so much to Beverly for sponsoring us for the month of March. The team has used their own stamps this week, be sure to visit their blogs to leave them some love.

We are also excited to welcome Dawn Easton to our Design Team. I just adore Dawn's cards and was thrilled when she agreed to join our little team. I asked Dawn to share a bit about herself!

Hi there :) I'm super excited to be joining the Seize The Birthday Team! I've been stamping for about 8 years now and unlike all my other hobbies I haven't gotten bored of it. It's a good thing too since I've invested a lot of money into it. I'm a wife, mom and work full time for a major grocery chain here in Canada. Since I travel during the week I spend my weekends stamping away. I'm very lucky to have a supportive husband and
Over the years I've been lucky enough to be on several design teams and was a member of the Dirty Dozen on SCS back in 2008. Wow that seems so long ago now. I'm looking forward to playing along with all these talented ladies and seeing your creations too!

    Love all these creations. Wish I could play along but I'm away from my scrappy supplies for a month!! UGH!!!

  2. Your write up says "This linky will close at Noon on the Tuesday before the next Seize the Birthday Challenge" which would be Mar 12 but the link looks like it will close Mar 11? Maybe I'm just confused? It isn't too hard to confuse me, lol.
