Seize the Birthday Wish Big


Hi everyone!  We made it to Wednesday!  I have a very simple card today, a birthday card for my nephew and I am using the Seize the Birthday challenge of using chevrons.  This is a unabashed CASE of this card by Brenda, which I absolutely adored!!!  I found some chevron paper in the Fresh Prints pack, and I used a retired SU set called Word Play, along with the car from Rev up the Fun:


I added a little additional chevron from the Tasteful Trim die, and it was done!  Nice and easy!!! 

Some snow time:




Enjoy your day!


  1. So bold and beautiful! It is snowing snowing snowing here today....everything is closed and I have a free day! Maybe time for stamping stamping stamping!

  2. Fun card! I really like how simple but bold it is. Cute pix! Apparently Cassidy likes snow more than Liam. We were out last week with our booming 1" of snow. He asked me to throw snow at him- I did and he loved it. Then I did when he wasn't expecting it- got him right in the face. Game over. He was inside within a minute getting out of his outside clothes. You'd never know he was born in NJ, much less spent 3yrs there enjoying the snow. :)

  3. snow day!!! how fun!!! and I lOVE this masculine card LeAnne ~ thanks for sharing your wonderful gift of creativity!!! ((hugs)) enjoy your day!

  4. What a bold card that is excellent for a male.

    Brrrr...! That's all I can say about the snow photos.

  5. What a great guy card! Love the brighter color with the black. Usually I think of darker colors for guys and need to get out of that box! Looks like Cassidy is enjoying that snow! Hope you're doing OK in all of it.

  6. Vroom vroom ~ great card for your nephew LeAnne! Cut photos of Cassidy too, love her little rosy cheeks!

  7. Very pretty LeAnne. Love the pop of black against the pretty background paper. I didn't see your card in the Seize the Birthday gallery. Hope you link it up there.

  8. Love this color, LeAnne! Perfect for you nephew. Are you enjoying the snow too? ;)

  9. LeAnne, I am always in awe of how you can move to shabby chic to clean and simple to bold and beautiful. You really are the queen of versatility. I love the strong elements on this card and the turquoise with the black and white is stunning.

    Hope you get your electricity back soon my friend
