Happy New Year and Some News!!

Happy New Year to you All!
It's great to be back with you this year and we look forward to 2018 with some New Toppings, New Inspiration, a New DT member and new Surprise Party Guests!  Let's get right to it!  First, I would love to give a very warm welcome to our Newest Design Team member Lindsey M-P from Bashful Blogging. We are super excited to have her joining us and please won't you help us and drop by her blog and give her a welcome as well! 
Lindsey Martin-Penny
Here is a bit about Lindsey!
Hi! I’m thrilled to be joining the talented team here at Seize the Birthday. I spend most of my time in central Ontario, Canada, outside in the summer and inside as much as possible in the winter. Indoors or out, I have a lot of fun playing with stamps, ink, paper, paints, markers… you get the idea. My card style is usually clean and simple, with occasional forays into the uncharted territories of mixed media or vintage style. 

Next, I would also like to welcome our new Surprise Party Guest that will be with us the next two months!  She is someone who I believe you just might recognize, as she is very well known in the stamping blogosphere...

Kriste Goulet
Here is a little bit about Kristie!

Hi, my name is Kristie Goulet and I live in Connecticut with my husband of 19 years and 4 amazing children. I am a SAHM who loves to create after our homeschooling day is finished.  I love making cards to send to family and friends. 

Welcome Kristie, we are so happy to have you! 

Now, it's time for our First Challenge of 2018!
It just so happens to be...
Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!
