Welcome to Seize the Birthday's last challenge of 2023. Wow! So hard to believe. It's been another fun year and I look forward to all the fun challenges in 2024. 

Barbara has chosen fall stuff for our challenge this week. I have some long retired pumpkin stamps that I pulled out for this.  I used some Distress Oxides with some water & paint brush and 'painted' right on the stamp.  I love how they turned out and made a few more cards similar to this for some fall birthdays. 

Be sure to pop over to the blog (where it's a bit of a pumpkin fest!) to check the rest of the fabulous creations and give some love to our  Surprise Party Guest Loll and previous winner Lisa K.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a terrific day.
