Floral and a New Guest!

Welcome to another great challenge here at Seize the Birthday! Some of the Design Team and I were saying the other day what a terrific following we have, an how lucky we are to have such great inspiration to look at and comment on.  Keep doing what you are doing everyone, because we sure are enjoying it!  Before I get to our challenge, it's time to welcome our next Surprise party guest for the months of April and May that I know you are going to love!

Hi everyone, I am mom to 4, grandma to 6 and wife to the best person I’ve ever known.   We recently moved to the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota and totally love it!!  Since 2010 I have been designer and co-founder of a wonderful little cottage business that makes scarves called neckStyles™.  I love beautiful fabric almost as much as I love beautiful paper.  My DH and I also enjoy travel, photography, cooking and eating! heehee I’ve been creating cards for about 19 years and have enjoyed teaching others in my home as well as in the classroom.  I am continually inspired by the talented team at Seize The Birthday Challenge Blog, as well as the amazing cards displayed in the gallery.  I appreciate the friendships and inspiration of this great Blogland Community and I am so thankful for this exciting opportunity!

 Welcome Patti! We are so glad you are here!

Now onto our challenge for the next couple of weeks!
