Seize the Birthday #225-Use a Stencil

Welcome to another challenge here at Seize the Birthday!  Before I get to our fun and easy topping ( selected by Cathy) that we know you all will enjoy, I would like to welcome our next Surprise Party Guest that will be with us to finish out this year. 

Please help me welcome...


Here is a bit about her:
I am a recently retired high school and community college Spanish, English as a Second Language, and Literacy teacher.  My stamping hobby started decades ago with teacher stamps and scrapbooking. The first “trick" I ever learned in stamping was masking, and even carving some of my own stamps. I like all aspects of stamping and enjoy a challenge such as figuring out how something was made. Currently, I am enjoying joining challenges and continuously seeing new ideas online. There are so many incredibly talented people in this hobby to learn from and I have made so many nice friends along the way. 

We are so happy to have you, Carol! 
Now to our topping! 

  Our "Topping" option this time is...


If you're not a toppings kinda person, well.....you can just
stick with our usual "Anything Goes"Birthday!
The choice is yours!


Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!
