Seize the Birthday #238-Faux or Real Stitching

Welcome to another challenge here at Seize the Birthday! Before we get to our next topping, it's time to welcome our newest Surprise Party Guest that will be with us for the months of May and June.  

I would like to give a warm welcome to...

Here is a bit about her:

Hi, I'm Lorraine, aka Lols, a Midwife by profession and Design Team Leader for Simon Says Stamp. I have always enjoyed all sorts of crafts but once I was introduced to cardmaking, approx 14 years ago, I was hooked. I am originally from the north of England but now live in Gozo, Malta with my husband. I have 2 children, a son who lives in Holland and a daughter who lives in Scotland. I am Membership Secretary for the local Gozo SPCA and am an active helper/fundraiser for the charity. 
I am thrilled to have been invited to the Seize The Birthday Party as a Surprise Guest and am looking forward to sharing my birthday projects for the next 2 months! 
Let's get this party started!! 

   Now, onto our next topping selected by Shirley!

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

stick with our usual "Anything Goes" Birthday!
The choice is yours!

Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!

Have fun and let the celebration begin!

Challenge Rules (to keep things fair):
1. You must make a BIRTHDAY PROJECT, however, our topping is always optional.
2. You may link up to 3 projects for each challenge.
3. Please add a direct link to your blog or to an online gallery.
4. Please include one of our graphics and a link back to our blog.
5. You may combine this challenge with up to 4 other challenges
6. When using digital images they must have been coloured by hand.
7. As always, please have fun! All products are welcome!

NOTE:  We ask that ONLY birthday cards be uploaded to the gallery.  We have been seeing many cards that, while lovely, don't fit our birthday theme and therefore are not considered for selection.  This also includes entries linked to more than five challenges total.  Any card not adhering to our rules is subject to removal from the gallery.  We appreciate all of you and thank you for understanding! 

This linky will close at 9am (PST) on Tuesday, May 24th! 

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
