Seize the Birthday!
The Weather

Our BadgeI can't tell you how excited I was to see I won Seize the Birthday last week!  I've been trying to play more new challenges to keep active and make a few more new friends.  I love making things - it's my peace of mind and a way to express myself.  What I didn't take into account is what a boost it would give me.  Feeling like I'm on Cloud 9 which seems appropriate considering the "Toppings" this week!  It's all about the weather. 
I'm playing with the Rainbow die set from Top Dog Dies.   It comes with the clouds and stars.  The pierced circle is from the Circle Die set.   Here's a little tip for keeping your rainbow straight - after you cut out all your colorful half circles just reinsert them back into the die and attach them with some tape - I used colorful washi so you could see how I did it here. You can also add a piece of tape to the back to lift the entire piece out of the die easily when you're done taping them in place.

I love all the stars cut from gold - it's like candy for your eyes!
Wishing you sunshine and rainbows and time to play!

Congrats on winning at Seize the Birthday and yes, you so deserve to be on Cloud 9! Your creativity is simply amazing...inspired, inspiring, imaginative, ingenious and...incredible! Your rainbow card is sheer delight...the stars, the sun, the clouds...I'm crushing all over this darling scene you've created. My niece would be ecstatic to have this set; at age 5, she's all about rainbows and this one has the seven colours that would tickle her fancy! Super sweet, my friend!
