Creatures or Animals!

Welcome to another great challenge here at Seize the Birthday! Before I get to the Topping for this challenge, I need to welcome our newest Surprise Party Guest Cathy Roffey to the STB team.  She will be with us for the next two months! Welcome Cathy! You can learn a bit about her below!

I am also so very happy to report that Patti is back with us this week, and as you can see by her card below, there was no loss of mojo during her absence! Welcome back Patti!  You and your talent was sorely missed!

Okay, now let's get to it...shall we!

    Our "Toppings" option this time is...
"Creatures or Animals"
Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!

If you're not a toppings kinda person, can just

stick with our usual "Anything Goes"Birthday!
The choice is yours!

Cathy Roffey
Hi I’m Cathy and I’ve been making cards for quite a few years, although I only started my blog in 2013. I’ve always loved crafty things and have tried lots of things once lol! My style of cards is probably CAS, although I’ve been dabbling in mixed media and paper flower making lately.  I live in northern NSW on a property with lots of bush and wildlife around, as well as the usual dogs, cat and chickens! Both of our boys are living at home, so between them and my hubby, I have a captive audience for card critiquing! I work full time in a school office so look forward to the holidays when I can try new techniques and build up my card stash.
