Hello Friends, Hope you are having a wonderful day! It’s Spring Break for me and it is certainly Beach Weather as my title announced! Today over at Seize the Birthday we have a perfect “Topping” for this time of year, the topping is “Water.” The first thing I thought of when it was time to get crafty, was the beach. So I got out my watercolor brush and my new stamp set from Kitchen Sink Stamps and went to work. Living in Florida, I knew I would love this set and would be able to get lots of use out of it. It’s a 3 step stamp set, so I need a bit more practice but am still happy with my first time results. Not only does it have terrific palm trees, it even comes with tiny footprints in 3 different sizes too. They are so cute! The sentiment is from Verve. I thought it would be fun to cut out the center and pop it up with some foam. My friend Judy taught me that trick and I am forever grateful! Plus that stuff is cheap too!
Now I have the pleasure of welcoming two new designers to the Seize the Birthday Team and I am super excited about it! The first designer is Vicki Dutcher, whom I am sure you all have heard of, as she has been stamping for years and years and puts out fabulous cards one right after another. I also have the pleasure of working alongside Vicki on my Just Us Girls team as well. We do a lot of behind the scenes work together and we make a good pair! The Second DT member is a good friend of mine Barbara Campbell. Not only is Barb extremely talented she is my Birthday Sister to boot! We met over this great world of the “Blogishpere” and have had the pleasure to meet in person twice too! I appreciate her taking the time to meet me more than she realizes! I am thrilled that both these ladies agreed to join my already fabulous team over at Seize the Birthday! WELCOME Barb and Vicki!
Before I go I would also like to thank Jacquie Southas for being a wonderful Surprise Party Guest over at STB the past two months! Thanks for all your wonderful cards Jacquie and hope to see you in the gallery of ours from time to time!
Okay I think that about does it…thanks for sticking with me! Have an awesome day and PLEASE come on over to STB and join us and leave some love for the new members as well! Take care, Nanc’
