Seize the Birthday

It's a BIG day - the first challenge at Seize the Birthday!

I love their concept.  First, we ALL need birthday cards.  Second, they have fun mix of challenges.  There are two sketches each month.  The catch is that the first week of a sketch is girly and the second week of the same sketch is masculine.

I played along with a linky party that they had last month and was honored with a shout-out and a chance to be a guest designer for their first challenge!!  The sponsor this week is Whimsy and Stars Studio so I also got to pick out a free digital stamp!  It's girly week and I fell in love with Miss Dancin Queen.  She's not an official birthday stamp but I plopped a cake in her hand and it works!!

Wow! I am constantly amazed at how much you do ... And how you always see to find the coolest challenges. You must be such a talent ... All these challenge scouts that pick you up so quickly when they see your cards. Sigh ... When I grow up ... Perhaps someone will pick me! Hugs xxx
