Color Hues and Seize the Birthday


Hello Friends, I have a long post today so please stick with me!

Today over at Color Hues we are celebrating our 2nd Birthday! Woohoo! I can’t believe how quickly time goes. Thanks to ALL that have made this challenge such a success, the team and I certainly appreciate it! We hope you have enjoyed it as much as we certainly have. To join us in our collaboration we have asked our sister challenge, Seize the Birthday to join us! The Bigger the party the better! For those of you that don’t know, I took over Seize the Birthday from Lesley Croghan in August of 2013 as she was about to close it and I didn’t want that to happen. I have certainly enjoyed that challenge and my teammates immensely as well. I can’t believe it’s been 9 years!

Back to the challenges… if you decide to play along you can link your card up over at both challenges! Each challenge will have there own choice of winners!

Also, over at Seize the Birthday, we have a brand new Surprise Party Guest joining us! Welcome, Asa Johansson! We are so lucky to have you! You can find out more about her over on the STB blog! She makes wonderful CAS cards and is a fabulous colorist.

I have CASED a card from the talented Brenda Noelke. Check it out below! I just fell in love with it and everything she makes for that matter. Her photos are incredible too! If you don’t follow her you should!

Card Details: The lattice die is from Whimsy Stamps. The flowers are from Pink and Main. The greeting and scalloped die are from MFT. I heat embossed the sentiment. I used Oxide inks to make the Mums come to life.

I hope you have made it to the bottom of the post and I have inspired you to play along and link up at both my challenge blogs. Both the teammates did an incredible job with these colors, I hope you will come and check them out. We would love to have you!

Take care and happy crafting, Nanc’
