Seize The Birthday - Food and Drink

It's a new challenge at Seize The Birthday and our theme is Food and Drink (but you can always just play along with the general birthday theme if you prefer).

I've got a little flow chart for you - I like the outcome whichever route you take :)

The glass stamp comes with two half-outline dies so that you can have a cutaway edge on the card, or you can use both dies to cut out a complete image.

Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the design team and our surprise party guest, Stef Perry, then play along with us.

ETA: The stamps are by Crafter's Companion - Cocktail Time (glass stamp and dies) and Have A Gin (flowchart).  I think they may be discontinued but you could pick them up on eBay.


  1. Great card, Shirley! That flow chart works perfectly and I might have to put it into operation later! Jo x

  2. Hahahahaha!! I saw your card at the Seize the Birthday challenge and I just had to come here and thank you for making me LOL!!
    Fabulous funny card, it will make the recipient giggle and follow your advise.
    I was wondering if you could tell me where did you get that stamp and the flow chart, does it come in the set?
    Thanks again for sharing.

  3. I NEED this flowchart, Shirley! :D Beautiful card, love the glass and the bit of stencilling as well as the chart.

  4. I'm not much of a drinker, but I do enjoy a gin and tonic... especially on a hot summer's day - sometimes just the tonic and lime will do. These days, I might choose direct route!!
    Fabulous, and fun, Shirley!

  5. Ok, Shirley, when I stop laughing I need this. Die, Flow chart all of it. It is so hilarious and a must have. I know many I will send it to. This is the best card in the challenge.

  6. LOVE the flow chart, that is absolutely hilarious and the glass looks spectacular. I'm more of a wine girl, but a good gin and tonic on a hot day can really hit the spot. Super fun card!

  7. Haha! Thank you for the chuckle, Shirley! Don't know anyone who wouldn't be able to follow your flow chart and enjoy themselves! Delicious looking drinkie poo, too! Take care and keep safe!! Hugs, Darnell

  8. This is a huge hit for drinkers and non drinkers alike! Absolutely love it! Stay well!

  9. I am not a drinker but your flow chart is so cute.

  10. The flow chart is so much fun! It would make every recipient's day brighter!

  11. Agree with Nancy! The flowchart makes me laugh - and I am a teetotaler! Love, love, love this card!!

  12. Fun card and great design, love the touch of stencilling at the side, Cathy x

  13. This is amazing Shirley!!! I love everything about it. You put all the elements together perfectly.
