Seize The Birthday - Anything Goes


It's a new challenge at Seize The Birthday, and this week there are no toppings, so anything goes (as long as it's a birthday card!).  And today is also teamie Jodene's birthday - Happy Birthday, Jodene!

It's my new latest craze, sloshing outside the lines.  It makes me happy.  You'll be seeing a lot of it because I'm slightly obsessed with it.  At least until my next latest craze...


I've also been trying to use colour combos outside of my happy safe zone (green/blue/purple).  I've been trying really hard with pink but needed a break from it, so today I thought I'd use red/yellow.  And look, it's Seize The Birthday team colours, which I hadn't realised till I started this post (must have been in the subconscious).

I'm entering this into Less Is More where the theme is "Makes Me Smile".  It could be something cute or funny, or a technique that makes you happy.  Yup, this makes me happy.

I'm also entering it into Winnie & Walter's Join In To Win.

The image is from Rubber Romance, and the sentiment is from Winnie & Walter The Big, The Bold and The Happy.
