Cute cards for children

Good afternoon!

Firstly i'd just like to say thank you for your messages and good wishes for my birthday yesterday - i had a lovely day 

But Wow I'm late today! with my DT card for 

 - just managed to post my card on the challenge blog this morning then I had to rush out to go to the garage with hubby because he was taking his car in  for a diagnostic and needed a lift home from the specialist garage about half an hour away (yes it's serious and now has a death sentence!!)  From there I went for my daily swim, popped into town to pick up a few odds and ends, came back, walked the dog about 5 miles, back home tea prepped and I've finally got time to blog!! - I'm worn out thinking about it : )

We have a cute card challenge today! 
-something I haven't made in a while

 - a cute card for a child

I'm still keeping up with my crafting for a purpose challenge to myself and only making things for a purpose - this one fits because my grandson Jacob is in the 5 year olds constant round of birthday parties - sometimes two a week!!- so this will go in the box for him to use.

A fairly simple card but great to showcase this cute little image
she's called 
Ballerina Bobby and is available from

A super cute card Judith. I remember my children had a better social life than me when they were 5, real party animals.

Glad you had a good birthday. You had a very busy day by what I read. Makes me tired just reading it. A really lovely cute card sweetie.

Love the 'crafting for a purpose' challenge you set yourself Judith. I always try to create with 'someone' in mind, or at least knowing it can be used for a specific purpose. I like my creations to have somewhere to go! So I'm all for this!! Your wee Grandson will be super proud to give this at the next girlie birthday party I'm sure! Zac has been very proud giving cards I've made to his friends. It's really sweet seeing their excitement in this. Love the silvery sparkly accent card and gorgeous frame. Really pretty card. Hugs, Wends xoxo
