Monochromatic Toppings at Seize The Birthday and a sad goodbye

Yippee Skippee a new challenge kicks off today at Seize The Birthday challenge blog where you will find a new challenge every two weeks.

The "Toppings" this time: 

I hope you will consider joining us for this fun challenge.  Please remember that if you are not a "toppings" kind of gal anything always goes! at STB just so long as it is a Birthday Card : )

This marks my last posting as a Design Team member for Seize The Birthday.  I have not only loved creating cards for this challenge but I have really really enjoyed the pleasure of visiting so many of you in the STB gallery.  Thank you for your - always warm - welcome!!

A special thanks to a gal who I now call friend, Nancy Leppek, owner of Scrapper@heART blog and administrator of STB.  Nancy, as many of you know, is kind and supportive and... well one of the sweetest gals in blogland!!  Thank you, Nancy for the opportunity to work with you and the rest of the TALENTED! gals on the team.  It was on my "Bucket List" to be on a team and it has definitely been one of the highlights of my love for this hobby!!

Stepping down doesn't mean I won't be creating cards or visiting with my friends in blogland or even joining the challenges at STB.  You will be seeing me around plenty! : )

Thank you again.

Pattie, I love your style and your card for this last challenge is a perfect example of what I like. So glad that I got to know you as a member of this team and I wish you best as you leave our group. Really sorry to hear that, but sometimes it is for the best. Hope to see you around in blog land.
