Seize the Birthday - Hobbies/Pastimes

Happy Thanksgiving 2021, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations

 Hello friends and welcome to our last Seize the Birthday challenge for 2021 and a very Happy Thanksgiving to you.  Lindsey has chosen the "Topping" option of  Hobbies and Pastimes.

Who doesn't like BBQ as a pastime.  My husband used to love to BBQ and he made the best BBQ ribs that would melt in you mouth.  I stamped this sweet Grillin' Girl by My Favorite Things in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copics.  I sponged some grass and sky around the image and stamped a few grass sprigs. I die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die and matted it with Balmy Blue card.  The white panel is die cut with MFT Blueprints 27 die and then embossed with SU Tasteful Textile EF.  The sentiment is from another MFT set and mounted with foam tape.

I am sad to say this is TaeEun's last STB challenge with us and we will miss her creativity.  Thank you TaeEun.  Also, a big thanks to Carol for being our party guest the last two months.  Good luck to both of you ladies and we hope to see you in our gallery.

Be sure to check out all the inspiration by my teammates over at Seize the Birthday and I hope you will join us in this fun challenge.

Happy Stamping,




  1. Happy Thanksgiving, JoAnn! I love your summery backyard barbecue scene. Great choice for the topping!

  2. I hope that your Thanksgiving was wonderful, filled with good memories too. Since you went in a different direction, this is great. I went right to the obvious and that didn't leave a lot of room for others.

  3. What a fun direction you took for your pastime, JoAnn! Way to keep the gallery interesting! Awesome job and hope you had a nice Thanksgiving!

  4. What a cute birthday card, JoAnn! Everybody loves a cookout! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  5. Ah, I love this new theme for your card!! What a fun and tasty pastime!! Love the card design as well.

  6. Great choice for a pastime (I love BBQ any time of the year) - and such a great image for it. Really like the textured background too.

  7. Your summery card makes me miss Summer! Great coloring on the girl and background, JoAnn! Thank you so much for your lovely words!
