Winners #252-Case a DT Member


What an eventful year this has been for many cardmakers, and it has gone very fast for me! I hope that you had fun with the toppings and of course making the birthday cards that we send out to family and friends. We are taking the month of December off as usual, but there are 2 new changes coming to Seize the Birthday in 2023. 

Read Below! 

 The first change for 2023 is... We will be having Two Surprise Guests for each challenge.  We will have our usual Surprise Party Guest that is with us for two months and selected by Nancy and or the DT and is usually picked from people who play in our challenge often, as a thank you.  But, in addition to that, we are inviting JUST the Overall winner from our previous challenge that used the Topping to be our Surprise Party Guest. We are super excited about this addition! 

To clarify, We will still have our normal five winners. Two Overall Winners; one with the topping and one without, and our 3 Birthday Honours using any combination of with or without the toppings.

I also want to say that DT Member- Jules Peddicord will be leaving STB, but she really isn't going far, she will be sliding over to Color Hues in the New Year, and we are really excited about that. So please look for her fabulous cards over there! 

Now let's go see who our winners are along with seeing whom our first guest will be in 2023!


You both managed to "Take the Cake" this week!
We hope you will enjoy your Winner's Badge!

Elizabeth-Please contact Nancy at 
and she will give you all the details about guesting with us. 

Now, this week's Runner Ups who will be receiving 
"Birthday Honours" are...



Trina P 


We hope you ALL will enjoy your "Honours" badge.

On behalf of the Seize the Birthday Design Team, I would like to
wish you a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We will
see you back here on January 12th for our next Topping 
and to recap the changes and share with you 
another small change for STB!

Take care,
