Seize the Birthday #252 CASE a DesignTeam Member

Hello, 
 Happy Thanksgiving to all of our USA followers.  We have so much to be grateful for this Holiday, first and foremost is YOU are participants.  Without you, we wouldn't be here and on behalf of the entire STB team, we thank you for letting us bring a little creativity into your life twice a month!  We have a couple little changes coming to STB in January so please stay tuned!   

This is Barbara, and I chose this topping for the last challenge of 2022!  I think you will have fun with it.  Just look back on all of the posts that we have done here at STB, pick out a card that you like, and make one similar or just like it. Your choice for this one.  I would love to see you all do the toppings, but of course, it is not necessary. 

I also need to give a quick shout-out to Asa for being such a wonderful Surprise Party Guest.  We certainly have enjoyed having you and we hope you had fun too. 



Make sure you share the card you CASED with us, we would love to see it! If you want to see the cards we cased you will have to visit our blogs as well. 

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!

Hello, Ashwini here! I am back today with the winner's post for our latest topping using "Many of Something".   The gallery was full of wonderful cards both with and without our topping.  I was so pleased as so many of you used my topping this time around.  Thank you for that!

Seize the Birthday #251 Many of Something

Hello crafters, 
Welcome to another great challenge here at Seize the Birthday!  Before I get to our next Topping, I am super excited to inform you that we have a brand new Design Team member that is joining us here at STB.  She is an avid participant and probably needs no introduction at all, but please help me welcome, 
Linda Snodgrass to the STB Team!

Here is a bit about her! 
Hello, I am Linda, and am very excited to be joining STB with all of you talented ladies.  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 (Linked Above).  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.  My youngest son moved to Oregon for a job promotion with the triplets when they were about 15 months old.  I just couldn't imagine not seeing them grow up on a daily basis.  What a joy they are as well as the older grandchildren too.  My oldest son moved his family down to Arizona about the same time we moved to Oregon.  It's really strange and sad to have family in 3 different states.  I have one nephew and two granddaughters still living in Washington, plus lots of cousins.   
My bestie is STB DT member Colleen, which was another reason I decided to move to Oregon.  It was a win, win for me.  Looking forward to working with everyone.

Now, are Topping this time was selected by sweet Ashwini! 
Let's go check it out!
