Seize The Birthday - Lots of Leaves



Hello Crafty friends! today at Seize The Birthday the Toppings are Lots of Leaves!! As you can see I have lots of leaves on my card and you might have guessed... they are stickers from my stash!! : )

But the best thing about the the challenge at Seize The Birthday this time are the THREE new Design Team members we are honored to have joining our team!! Please be sure to visit STB for a proper introduction!!

We hope you will join in on this festive challenge.  You have two weeks to enter your card in the gallery.  If you like you can use our Toppings Theme "Lot's of Leaves" or, as always, you can do a "Anything Goes ".  Just be sure to keep it a birthday theme!

So many of you are faithfully still commenting on my posts even though I've been seriously MIA!! Thank you so much for hanging in there with me.  I'm finding I have NOT had any time to PLAY!! since arriving home from WI/Minnesota and now getting ready for our trip.  I've been busy helping my husband who is working very hard to be able to get away for our anniversary cruise - not to mention our scarf business and the normal every day stuff PLUS shopping and finding just the right hat! and a slip for that tropical dress my friend found at a garage sale for me and then the packing plans and... giggles! Thank you, as I said, for hanging in there with me I will be back in full swing! even if it is not until after we return mid November.

GREAT BIG INKY (((((Hugs)))))

Woozer! I love those leaves. I woudl never have guessed that they were stickers. That cutout window that is a shaker, really make a BIG design statement on this card. I also love looking at your Christmas cards, and I will be reading more on a chance to win. I love your Penny Black designs. Have a great trip, we just got back from a 3 week river cruise. It was wonderful
