Welcome to another great challenge here at Seize the Birthday!
Have we got a Fun and Perfect Topping for you this time around, but before I get to that, it's time to welcome our new Surprise Party Guest for the next two months.

 Please help me in welcoming 
Becca Cruger!
Here is a bit about her!

I've been crafting ever since I discovered how to attach glitter to paper! I LOVE working with messy products - especially Ranger Distress products. I am the owner of Damsel of Distressed Cards in Grand Forks, ND and teach card making and mixed media art classes.  I have my own line of punny and humorous stamps for STAMPlorations called Big Grins by Becca Cruger. I love to participate in card challenges, Seize the Birthday is one of my absolute fave challenges because I am always running out of birthday cards! I am on design teams for Coffee Loving Cardmakers, Fusion Card Challenge, The Card Concept, and STAMPlorations.  

 Our "Toppings" option this time is...

Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!

If you're not a toppings kinda person, can just

stick with our usual "Anything Goes"Birthday!
The choice is yours!
