Happy New Year and Some News!!

Happy New Year to you All!
It's great to be back with you this year and we look forward to 2018 with some New Toppings, New Inspiration, a New DT member and new Surprise Party Guests!  Let's get right to it!  First, I would love to give a very warm welcome to our Newest Design Team member Lindsey M-P from Bashful Blogging. We are super excited to have her joining us and please won't you help us and drop by her blog and give her a welcome as well! 
Lindsey Martin-Penny
Here is a bit about Lindsey!
Hi! I’m thrilled to be joining the talented team here at Seize the Birthday. I spend most of my time in central Ontario, Canada, outside in the summer and inside as much as possible in the winter. Indoors or out, I have a lot of fun playing with stamps, ink, paper, paints, markers… you get the idea. My card style is usually clean and simple, with occasional forays into the uncharted territories of mixed media or vintage style. 

Next, I would also like to welcome our new Surprise Party Guest that will be with us the next two months!  She is someone who I believe you just might recognize, as she is very well known in the stamping blogosphere...

Kriste Goulet
Here is a little bit about Kristie!

Hi, my name is Kristie Goulet and I live in Connecticut with my husband of 19 years and 4 amazing children. I am a SAHM who loves to create after our homeschooling day is finished.  I love making cards to send to family and friends. 

Welcome Kristie, we are so happy to have you! 

Now, it's time for our First Challenge of 2018!
It just so happens to be...
Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!

Welcome to another great challenge here at Seize the Birthday! For our US team members and friends...Happy Thanksgiving!  As I am writing this post I can't help to express how Thankful I am for my STB team and our followers!  I never dreamed this hobby of mine could turn into something so gratifying! The friendships I have made on this journey are priceless!  Speaking of priceless...
This is Patti's last post with us at STB and my segway from the word priceless fits her to a T.  We wish you nothing but the best Patti, and hope to hear from you now and then!  You are a true talent and we appreciate all your inspiration you have given us!

I also need to thank Becca for being an Amazing Surprise Party Guest the Past 3 months! It's been a joy having you and your talented self with us and we hope to see you again in 
our gallery real soon! 

Now onto our topping!  

    Our "Toppings" option this time is...
"Monochromatic"
(containing or using various shades of one color)
Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!
If you're not a toppings kinda person, well.....you can just
