Week 68 Theme

What stars LIMettes have become at One Layer Cards and we had some super submissions last week.
For our theme this week we have chosen a card for
Remember to keep it simple but you may use more than just the one layer this week, should you so desire.


This is a simple layout using a scrap of Cuddly Buddly digi paper and a Penny Black stamp. The sentiment is from Paper Make up and it's fairly self explanatory.
This is a similar design but with NO stamping!
This is all die cut. The stork is Quickutz and the name is from Cuttlebug's  Babyface alphabet, with a couple of baby feet from a Dovecraft punch. I like the stork's knees!


I don't tend to do that many children's cards. I do lots of new baby ones, which I blog often! My children's cards are the opposite of Less is More! with lots of bright colours. Most certainly I always include their name.
So my first birthday card is simply using a digital Me to You kit from Docrafts. It's a fabulous cd, you can resize the images, change their colour, move them around. I chose to make my teddy huge and off the edge. The sentiment is computer generated as is the 1, which I printed onto card and ran through my Big Shot to emboss. I decoupaged the bunny to give a bit of detail.

This should be theme which you all need cards for on a frequent basis!
If any of you don't have an appropriate image or would merely like to have it, there is a digi image of a baby's boot on Chrissie's blog, which you are welcome to take.

We'd love to see your contributions.
