Meet the Design Team

(Owner/ Challenge Administrator)

 I am married and retired and living life in Bradenton. Florida.   Hubby and I have the most amazing son and daughter-in-law a parent could ever ask for, they both work for Apple's cooperate office and they live in Santa Cruz, Calif. When I am not making cards, you can find me either baking, walking, bike riding, blogging, or Instagram surfing.  I think I have the most amazing Design Team out there!  Not only are they talented, but I am honored to call them my friends!

 My Fabulous Design Team

I am super excited to be joining the Seize the Birthday DT! I live in Bangalore, India, with my parents and my sister. I've always loved crafting, thanks to the encouragement & support from my mother. I started card making a couple of years ago, after seeing some amazing cards on Pinterest, and became addicted - there's been no looking back since! I don't stick to a particular style, since I want to try anything and everything that comes my way, but I am a bit partial to watercoloring, which is my favorite. It's my first DT job ever (thank you Nancy, for inviting me!!), and I am looking forward to have lots fun with all the amazing ladies here, and of course with all the card makers who play along.

Hello, I am Barbara and I am so excited to be asked to join this creative team of ladies at Seize the Birthday.   I live in Wisconsin, but I am an official "Snow Bird" as we enjoy winters in Florida.  I am married to a man who understands my need to create. Yes, that means that I bring as much of the crafty things to Florida that I can get in the car. Since retiring, I have had time to pursue the paper craft that I love. I enjoyed my 28 years as an Emergency Department nurse, and now we love to travel. I have been to some amazing places.  We have 5 children and 7 grandkids and enjoy having them in our lives.  

Hi everyone, I'm Cathy from Cathy's Card Spot. I too have been making cards for many years. I started at a stamping party with my sister where we saw the "magic" of embossing and I was hooked!
I love making clean and simple cards, although more recently I've been playing with mixed media elements, so cards are more clean and complicated! I work full-time as a school office admin manager and do enjoy the term breaks when I get more time to play. Looking forward to having lots of fun with this inspirational team!

Hi Girl Friends!  I am Colleen and live in West Linn, Oregon, just south of Portland.  My husband and I just celebrated our 42 anniversary!  We have two grown daughters and between them have 3 girls and three boys ranging from 4 - 14!  My older daughter and her family live right next door to us!   I am so humbled to be asked to serve on this design team with you all...and Lesley, a million thanks for believing in me!

Hey there!  I'm Glenda and I'm really happy to be here at Seize the Birthday.  First off, I must confess, I am a big geek!  Science geek and crafty geek! I’m a marine geologist by day and a stamping addict by night.  I have a great group of crafty friends here, there, and everywhere who keep me inspired, entertained, and enabled.  I’m also lucky to have a supportive hubby, who never asks how much I spend on my addiction, I mean, hobby!  My paper crafting style is generally clean and simple, although I do stray off in random directions sometimes. Being on this team is perfect for me as I love playing with sketches (and have a hard time coming up with my own). I also love to play with funky patterned papers and fun & bold colour combinations.

Hi my name is JoAnn and I am so excited to be joining the Seize The Birthday Design Team.  I have been doing crafts of some sort for most of my life, hence the title of my blog.  I started scrapbooking and cardmaking in 1998 and it is definitely addictive.  I enjoy making cards for family and friends.  We live in Central Florida about 60 miles from the west coast.  My husband and I are both original Floridians and moved back here after he retired from the military. We are both retired now and I enjoy my crafts and spending time with the grandchildren.

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 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!   

Hi, I am Linda! I started scrapbooking when my boys were young and then was introduced to card making and after that card making became my go-to craft.  I created my blog in 2011.  I have been on 2 Christmas challenges, but sadly both have closed down.  
I am a grandma of 9: ages from 4-30.  A set of triplets, who are 4 yrs old are in the mix.
  I lived my whole life in Washington state until about 3 years ago when my sister and I moved down to Oregon to be closer to the triplets. I am thrilled to be joining the ladies here at STB.  

Hi, I’m Shirley and I’m thrilled to be joining this talented team at Seize The Birthday because I love making birthday cards!  I’ve been crafting since I was a child and will try just about anything, but stamping is my obsession.  We live in a beautiful village in north-west England with our basket-case of a rescue dog (a surprise present from our two grown-up sons who have both de-camped to Australia).  We’ve both retired early, 
DH does all the cooking and I get to play all day.  Win/win!

Hi all, my name is Vicki Dutcher.  I have been stamping for a lot of years at this point.  It all started with a SU party and has grown from there.  I have been a designer for many companies and currently am designing for 3.  I love stamping - it is the best hobby out there!  I also work at Starbucks part time.  I love my job, I love my hobby - can't get any better then that except.... being on this fun Team with Nancy and the girls. Thanks so much for having me!  I'm looking forward to this new gig.
