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 ~ NO TOPPING

Is it more of a challenge to have a topping or NO TOPPING?
Well, I like to do challenges me to think outside the box when there is a topping, but then when there is NO topping, like this Challenge at Seize the Birthday,
I can pull out favorite stamps or try a technique I have seen.
 I hope you will play along with us at Seize the Birthday!
And go see what the other designers have made to inspire you!
stamps & dies:  HA Happy stamp & cut, PTI Heart to Heart Birthday Balloons, PTI:  SAF Ancient Rome die for stencil, PTI Balloon Strings.

Heart Hugs, friends!
