Seize the Birthday #13 {Masculine Birthday}

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

For the next two weeks, we are excited to be sponsored by Debbie Marcinkiewicz from Paper Sweeties™ LLC. She is offering a $10 gift certificate to the shop for each week! Thank you so much Debbie!!

Paper Sweeties™ LLC is owned and illustrated by Debbie Marcinkiewicz, and offers hand drawn, high quality photopolymer acrylic stamps.  Our heartwarming images allow paper crafters to create adorable dolls with interchangeable outfits and accessories! We also have a wide variety of wonderful all-occasion sentiments, labels and accessory sets - perfect for every paper crafted project!  The Paper Sweeties Shoppe carries hand tea-stained seam binding too!  The Sweeties dolls, accessories and sentiments are so much fun to play with and are sure to bring back fond childhood memories!  You’ll enjoy using the Sweeties to create projects for card making, scrap booking, party invitations and favors, home decor, gifts and so much more!
