Cupcakes and Candy if You Choose!

Welcome back to Seize the Birthday! Thanks to everyone who played along with us last time! Today in honor of Valentine's month we thought it might be kinda fun to break out those sweets and add them to your card and or project. 
Just a reminder that our topping is an option for
 you and our Design Team as well!
I would like to also welcome our new Surprise Party Guest
for the next two months.
and here is a little bit about her...
I am so excited to be the Surprise Party Guest at Seize the Birthday! I came to card making through scrapbooking and was immediately hooked when I discovered the online challenge world and blogging. Although I've played with a few different styles, CAS is what I love most. Long ago I worked in the corporate HR world, but for the last 18 years I have stayed at home with our daughter (18) and son (17). In addition to paper crafting, my other passion is volunteering as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) through Voices for Children and advocating for foster children in the San Diego County juvenile dependency court system. I'm looking forward to seeing your birthday card creations in the gallery!

Welcome Jacquie we are thrilled to have you with us!

So, Our "Toppings" option this time is...
"Cupcakes or Candy"
Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!
If you're not a toppings kinda person, well.....you can just
stick with our usual "Anything Goes"Birthday!
The choice is yours!
