Seize the Birthday #246- Collaboration with Color Hues

Hello Crafters, 
  I have quite a long post for you today! I hope you can stick with me! 

First, We have a Special Challenge starting today!  We are Collaborating with our sister challenge Color Hues to help them celebrate their 2nd Birthday!  The bigger the party the better, wouldn't you say?  A BIG Congrats to them! 

For our "Topping" today, we are using the colors of their challenge which you will see below!

Now, after you link up a card for this challenge, make sure you head on over to Color Hues and Link up with them as well!  

 This challenge and their challenge will be like any other, as far as the winners go, each Challenge blog will pick its own Winners!  So you can double your chances!

Here is a Link to COLOR HUES for you! 

If you're not a toppings kinda person, you can just
stick with our usual "Anything Goes" Birthday, but you won't be able to link up at Color Hues! 


Next,  I would like to take a moment and welcome our next Surprise Party Guest for the next few months.  She is a great colorist and makes darling CAS cards!
 Welcome, Åsa Johansson! We are so happy to have you here! 

Here is a bit about her! 

Hi all Seize the Birthday fans!
 I´m so happy for this opportunity. And who am I? My name is Åsa Johansson and I live in the middle of Sweden in my own little house with my kids. I´m soon to be 46 and I work as a teacher. Cardmaking is my addiction. I love it and have no intention of stopping. I´ve been doing this since 2007 when I was expecting twins and couldn´t work. My style is 95% CAS. I love white space and I love to color my stamps in pink, grey, and turquoise for example. I like ink blending too but I´m not a mixed media girl. And I love to be active on Instagram, as it's a great way to give and get inspiration and get friends all over the world. I´m so looking forward to seeing all your fantastic cards. Hugs Åsa


Now, let's go check out all the fabulous inspiration from 
the team and our guest-Asa!
