Today is a special day, because this is my first design as a “Surprise Party Guest” at Seize the Birthday! I’m very honored to have this two month invitation.

My first design incorporates the topping, “sunshine.”


Ahhh, there’s nothing like the feeling of swinging. And, barefoot in the sunshine adds to the joy!

Swinging in the Sun


The Silhouette Scenes Stamp Set was my #1 pick from the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog. I adore the artwork, and the versatility within the stamp set, where I found this adorable, swinging, girl. I stamped her in Night of Navy Ink, along with “Happy Birthday,” using the Stamparatus to get the nice, deep, color.

Along with the stamp set is a fabulous, Sweet Silhouettes Die Set. Isn’t this tree gorgeous? It was very easily cut , using the die, from Whisper White cardstock. I used tiny dots of liquid glue to adhere it to the background.


Hours could have been spent creating the background, but I’ll let you in on a secret; I simply cut a section of the coordinating, 12X12, See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper. 


All I did was make sure the sun was where I wanted it.
