Clean and simple for children

 Hello bloggers,

Thanks for the kind words on Zeenya's cheese cake. YOU MADE HER DAY!

Aleeza (the younger one) had a play date and Zeenya offered the little friend her cheese cake and did she love it. Infact I packed her a doggie bag home and her mum was soooo... happy!!!

Now to this card - it is a simple card for children made in minutes... I have used my Cuttlebug for the square shapes. The stickers are from my stash.

The polka dotted ribbon is really cool - I got it from the scrap booking section of a book store from Prague. It feels so nice to touch with the embossed polkas on it.

I tried writing the Happy Birthday sentiment with  special Crayola pencils which can write pretty well on dark surfaces. Sadly they are not showing well...
This card is also a quick make but it took me a little more time than the first one...

My Cuttlebug came in handy for the squares and the embossing.

The stickers are from my stash.

The punching at the bottom has been done with Carlacraft punches - they came out with some new ones last year - easier to hold and work with.

Hope you like my simple cards - sometimes I need cards for children and don't have any available so I thought I might as well be prepared for a change.
