We have a special challenge for you today.  
Seize the Birthday is celebrating its 200th challenge.  Woohoo!  
We are so grateful to all of you that have helped us reach this milestone. 

MAKE SURE you read the entire post so you will understand the rules for this challenge! 

So for this challenge, I ( Nancy) am offering ...
2 Twenty-Five Dollar Simon Says Gift Certificates 
to both of our Top Winners. 

And to add to the fun... we have 4 Mystery Design Team Members that have prizes up for grabs on their blogs.  However, the requirement to win ANY of those prizes is, you must go to ALL of the Design Team's blog and leave each one of them some love! We all need a little love in our lives these days.
Also for your post, we are asking you to explain how exactly you were inspired by our graphic!

So you have 6 chances to WIN!


Let me explain our topping. 
 For this challenge we want you to make a card and/or project that is inspired by the graphic below.  Whether it be the colors, the balloons, the watercolor vibe, or the numbers, etc. Whatever sparks your creativity. 
 Remember for this challenge only, we are asking you to explain in your post how exactly you were inspired!

Seize the Birthday #199- Die-cuts

 Welcome to another great challenge here at Seize the Birthday! It's Cathy as your host this time and I've chosen one of my favorite techniques as the topping.  Before I get to the topping it's time to welcome our next Surprise Party Guest. 
Welcome, Angie Cimbalo!
Here is a bit about her! 

Hello! I’m a semi-retired school music teacher living in Texas with my wonderful husband and my sweet Goldendoodle pup.  When I’m not crafting, I’m having tons of fun helping music students and their directors in schools in the area. My husband and I have 4 adult children, 5 grandchildren with 1 more on the way.  My card making style is mostly clean and simple but I also love trying new techniques.  I’m thrilled to join in the Seize the Birthday as the surprise party guest and look forward to sharing my projects with you over the next two months.  
Now, onto our topping!
Diecutting, with the option of a stamped sentiment.


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!

The design team and our party guest have some wonderful inspiration for you.

Seize the Birthday #198-Add Gold

 Welcome to another great challenge here at Seize the Birthday! It's nearly the end of August and it's hard to believe that fall is right around the corner.  You would think being home so much would make the days go on forever, but they still fly by.  Speaking of flying by, it's time to say farewell to Jen our Surprise Party Guest. This will be her last card with us but we have really enjoyed having her along!  Thanks so very much Jen, and please come back and visit us soon!
Here is our next topping that was chosen by Tae Eun!

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