Hi! My name is Lesley. I love making cards and spending time with my wonderful husband. I am the creator of the Paper Players, the Freshly Made Sketches, the Dynamic Duos and now the Seize the Birthday challenge blogs. I am the co-creator of FUSION with Jackie Rockwell. I also host a weekly Christmas Card Challenge on my blog called "Merry Monday" and I design for Whimsy and Stars Digital Stamps. My passion is card making and I am inspired by all the crafty people I meet!! I am thrilled to be working with these ladies! I hope you will get crafty with us and build your stash of birthday cards.
Hi, my name is Rose and I am married to a wonderful man that not only supports my crafty
obsession hobby but encourages it. We are empty nester's with just our two spoiled fur babies Precious and Q left at home.
I am thrilled that Lesley has asked me to join her DT on Seize the Birthday as I am always way behind on making birthday cards.
Hi, My name is Deanna Dean. I was born and raised in a small town in Southern Oregon and still call it home. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 22 years. We have one daughter and soon we will be adding a son-in-law to the family. I've been crafting as long as I can remember. My mom and I were always making something. I started scrapbooking several years ago and that led to card making and I've never looked back. I'm so excited to be part of the Seize the Birthday Design Team.
How exciting to be part of Seize the Birthday Challenge Team! I am thrilled with the opportunity to design with the talented gals here at STB! My husband, Greg, and I live on a small farm in the Midwest with our three children...Noah (12), Ben (10), and Hannah (8). As a busy wife and mom, and full time teacher, I look forward to my therapeutic stamping time! As many of you know, I'm also a sucker for a fabulous sketch challenge, and I can't wait to share our wonderful sketches and inspiration with you!
Hi, I'm Jen and I live just north of Manchester in the UK. I'm an accountant by day and a crafter by night... with a little help from my two furry friends. My other half thinks I have way to much crafty stash... but it's an addiction what can I say, plus what would I use the spare room for if it wasn't my studio!! I can't wait to work with all these talented ladies on the DT!!!
Hello - I am so excited to be part of the Seize the Birthday Challenge Team, and work with such outstanding talent! My name is Cathy Santie, and I live 25 miles West of the "Windy City" - Chicago, Illinois. I have two adult children; a daughter who graduated with her Masters in Forensics and will be getting married this June, and a son who gave me my first Grandson , January 2010. I have a wonderful, supportive husband who actually gave me a nudge in the direction of this wonderful world of paper! Seven years ago, after watching me for a few months dabble in card making, I asked for a sewing machine for Christmas. He and my daughter had a bet going that this interest in paper wouldn't last for more than a few months. Well, as you can see, I received my sewing machine and after hundreds of cards later.....they lost! Thank you for visiting my blog, and for all your wonderful comments - they are greatly appreciated!
Hi, It's Amy! I'm so excited to be part of the Seize the Birthday team! I live in Washington State. I'm the proud mother of two lovely kids and am engaged to "thee most spectacular guy" who supports my crafting obsession. I work full-time, have been blogging since 2007. I absolutely love being part of this crafting community!!
Hey there! I'm Glenda and I'm really happy to be here at Seize the Birthday. First off, I must confess, I am a big geek! Science geek and crafty geek! I’m a marine geologist by day and a stamping addict by night. I have a great group of crafty friends here, there and everywhere who keep me inspired, entertained and enabled. I’m also lucky to have a supportive hubby, who never asks how much I spend on my addiction, I mean, hobby! My paper crafting style is generally clean and simple, although I do stray off in random directions sometimes. Being on this team is perfect for me as I love playing with sketches (and have a hard time coming up with my own). I also love to play with funky patterned papers and fun & bold colour combinations.

Hi, I'm Lynn and live in an extremely small town in Texas. I have two grown children, three lovely granddaughters, a wonderful husband, and a cute little doxie named Rambo. After completing 24 years in the workforce, I decided to "hang up my heels" and retire. This gave me more time to do the things I love like paper crafts, gardening, reading, and fishing. I looking forward to working with all the very talented ladies on this DT.
Hi! I'm Kay Miller. I have been stamping for 17 years now, ever since I wandered into a little stamping store in Anacortes, Washington while I was visiting my Grandfather. I ended up spending every bit of my traveling money on stamps and got in trouble with my Grandfather for staying way too long in the stamp store. I am married to a wonderful guy who puts up with my obsessive hobby and we have two great kiddos that I home school. We live in the country in the middle of nowhere Missouri with lots of dogs, cats, horses and miscellaneous wild things. I am SO very thrilled to be part of the Seize The Birthday Design Team. I have only this year started blogging and posting my cards online and I have never had so much fun!
Hi there :) I'm super excited to be joining the Seize The Birthday Team! I've been stamping for about 8 years now and unlike all my other hobbies I haven't gotten bored of it. It's a good thing too since I've invested a lot of money into it. I'm a wife, mom and work full time for a major grocery chain here in Canada. Since I travel during the week I spend my weekends stamping away. I'm very lucky to have a supportive husband and daughter....lol
Over the years I've been lucky enough to be on several design teams and was a member of the Dirty Dozen on SCS back in 2008. Wow that seems so long ago now. I'm looking forward to playing along with all these talented ladies and seeing your creations too!
