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!

Hi friends!  Today we have the pleasure of Jules selecting our "topping" and she chose "BEVERAGE"
for our topping this time at Seize the Birthday Card Challenge,

This one was a challenge for me, but I finally found a drink that looked festive, so I kept it simple and focused on the beverage!

The beverage is from Hero Arts:  Summer
The sentiment is from PTI:  Flipping Out
Now all that is needed is water and a lounge chair to celebrate the birthday!
Please check out the awesome cards from the team and our Special Party Guest: Carol, there are very clever cards for your inspiration!


  1. This certainly works! That fading blue rectangle showcases the yummy beverage (could be lemonade, could be more... :D) perfectly.

  2. This looks so refreshing, Col! I could use a glass of lemonade right now! Cheers!

  3. A refreshing tall glass of lemonade is just what the doctor ordered in Florida. I love the shade of blue to case it.

  4. Love your light background and great card, Colleen! We still have warm temps so lemonade sounds great!

  5. Well, that looks cool and refreshing Colleen! Love how the sky fades. xx

  6. This is such a pretty summertime card! Love the soft background.

  7. That's definitely what I'd love to have on my birthday - both the drink and the relaxing part!! Fun card!

  8. This is a cute and cheerful CAS card, Colleen! I love the light blue blending in the background !

  9. So cheerful! Great colour combo and I like the faded blue background.


I appreciate you taking time to stop by and leaving a comment!
