Linky Party {Celebrating Birthday Cards}

To get the Birthday Celebration rolling I am having a linky party! Yippee!

All you need to do is create a new post on your blog with a birthday card you have made in the past or a newly create birthday card. No back linking please. You may use a card you created in the past but please create a new post for it.

That is all! You are welcome to link up and combine other challenges to your Linky Party post; the more the merrier!

Here are a few rules, so we can all be consistent:
1. Please include the Linky Party Badge, just copy and paste it into your post.
2. Comment on each other's cards and is Christmas after all and Santa is watching.
3. No back linking please. You may use a card you created in the past but you must create a new post for it.
4. Please include a link back to our "Seize the Birthday" blog.
5. Have fun!

That is it!! This linky party will end on Tuesday, December 18th at Midnight (PST). The winner of our Linky Party will be a Guest Designer for one of our upcoming challenges.

I cannot wait to see what you have created or what you will create!

Thanks for stopping by!
