Hello Friends!

After scrambling for a baby card last week, I figured I should add some cards for babies to my stash that could be for a boy or a girl.  I colored Rubbernecker Stamps ~ Animals in Window with Prisma Colored Pencils and added some Rangers Stardust Stickles.  I popped it up over a Cheery Lynn Designs A2 Frame Die.  I Stamped  Congratulations from Rubbernecker Stamps Best Wishes Set on a Spellbinders Fancy Tag Three and added some Green Satin Ribbon and halfback self adhesive Pearls. 
 I quick and simple card....my favorite kind these days!

 I am entering this card in the following challenges......

Tuesday Alchemy ~ Anything Goes 
Oldie But A Goodie~ Anything But Christmas ~My ribbon is older than dirt! 

I want to thank Ale for the award I received from her!  I am truly honored! . I have not seen this award before but this is how she explained it......
"AWARD Dardos" This award was invented by the Spanish writer Alberto Zambade in 2008.
"This is recognition for every blogger for his commitment to transmit cultural, ethical, literary and personal."

  I am to give this award to 15 people but I cannot choose.  I think all of my blogging pals are talented!!!  I learn so much about different cultures from them all, so I give this to all my blogging buddies!

Thanks for stopping by a have a fabulous day!!
