Hello Crafters, 
Welcome to another challenge here at Seize the Birthday!  Glenda is our hostess and she picked a fun topping for us this time around.  She wants us to NOT use ANY stamping on our cards and or projects!  
We can't wait to see what you all do with this topping!

 Let's go see what the Design Team and our guest Karren have done!

  

If you're not a toppings kinda person, well...you can just

The choice is yours!

Special Tribute to Our Friend and Teammate

Hello Crafters,
We are deeply saddened to share the news that we lost our treasured friend and teammate, Lindsey, last week, following her hard-fought battle with cancer. Lindsey was well-known for her amazing creativity, witty sense of humor, and immense capacity to support and encourage her design team members and challenge participants. The crafting community will miss her shining light.


Today The Seize the Birthday Team is playing along with their Sister Challenge-Color Hues where Lindsey was also a Design Team Member. This challenge was to be hosted by Lindsey, so the Design Team wants to honor and celebrate her beautiful, creative life by sharing "Lindsey Inspired" projects using her Blue and Purple combination, along with things she loved the most, as inspiration. 

We hope that you will join us as we pay tribute to our 
dear friend and teammate.


Here are a few of her favorite things:

humor, cats
gardening/flowers
love of reading
friendship
wine
tea
*If you are a regular at Color Hues and/or Seize the Birthday you might also know that Lindsey loved Clean and Simple cards too.
We would love for you to join us and you can find all the details along with inspiration from both of the Design Teams over at the Color Hues blog below.
Thanks,
Nanc'
