Penny Black Simplicity Sister - Christmas in July



I wonder who thought up "Christmas in July"?  I think it was someone who was feeling the heat of the summer and wanted to dream a bit about cooling off! LOL Whoever it was - and for whatever reason you want to pick - my card on Penny Black's Simplicity blog is a fun fresh nod to the coming holidays - though not with ANY desire to hurry them along! : )



I hope my sneaky peek! will tempt you to hop over to see the whole card on Penny Black's Simplicity Sisters blog.

Have a wonderful day!

Seize your Happy!



Hello friends and thank you for stopping by today! I am here to introduce a new challenge at the Seize The Birthday challenge blog where we bring you a new challenge every two weeks.

The "Toppings" this time: 
"Red White & You"  




I love this little Pinata image from Close to My Heart.  I chose blue for my "you" color addition.  As I went searching for a sentiment to add to my card I laughed out loud when I saw this one.  I thought of that Pinata getting wacked time and again to reveal the treats inside and couldn't help making myself laugh.  I'm easy! LOL

Please join me in welcoming Lindsey owner of Bashful Blogging blog.  Lindsey is our Surprise Party Guest for July and August. You can see her wonderful work by following THIS link : )  When you have taken in some eye candy at Lindsey's place I hope you will hop on over to the STB blog where you are sure to be wowed by our uber talented DT and their take on this challenge.

I was so excited to see 122 entries in our gallery during the last challenge! There are some seriously talented ladies in Bogland!

 I hope you will join us and 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 : )

Thank you again for stopping by!
