{Babies and Birthday Wishes}

Good morning all! I hope your week has plodded along nicely, we are enjoying the last week of holidays here... I haven't had to think of school holidays really meaning much of a change to things for a few years now, but with my little munchkins about to start Prep next week, routine is fast becoming a reality again, after 5 years away from classrooms and the like.

For the moment, I am pinching a little time for my craftiness to be let out of the box each day. The girls are usually beside me cutting and sticky-taping their own little creations, they love having some punched out shapes to fiddle with, and like to keep busy, busy, busy. For me, I am really enjoying my card making again, inspired, with ideas racing through my head for different designs.

First up is one of the baby cards I made a couple of days ago, I like to call cards like this a Sweet Simplicity design - beats that word "simple" and puts a nice little spin on it;) I love a clean white card with a nice stamp, or two, and this little guy is so cute for a baby card, don't you think?



Next up is a birthday card with my favourite Cupcake stamps, from BasicGrey's Nook and Pantry range.



I hope you have a great day and a fabulous weekend.
Smiles:) bye for now.

Both cards are great!! Love the soft colours of them both! Really love how you layered the cupcakes.

Good luck with going back to school--I go back in May. I definitely won't have the same amount of time to craft :(
