One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Seize the Birthday ~ with a NUMBERS topping!

Welcome back to another Seize the Birthday challenge where the topping this time is "numbers", remember if you are not a "toppings" kind of crafter, then just go with a birthday card...we love them all!

This card will be for me daughter (the one who survived lymphoma cancer)...you can guess how old she will be on her birthday! *wink*  I have to apologize for this picture...it is the fourth one I have taken and  just can't get the card to look white all over, but trust me it is...it is not "dirty"!!

I hope you will play along with us this week and make a birthday card...I have an Uncle who will be celebrating 85 years, so I will be making another one with those numbers on it!

And I want to wish Sheri, one of the team members for Seize the Birthday,  a BIG SHOUT OUT because she is celebrating a birthday TODAY!  Go HERE  and give her some love and see what she created for your inspiration!  And to play along with this challenge, go HERE to Seize the Birthday  and play along with us!

PTI white paper, winter wisteria pattern paper
stamps:  Wplus9 Fresh cut Florals

Happy New YEAR everyone!!
