Seize the Birthday Challenge #257 - Card for a Child

I know that we make birthday cards. All kids of them and I for one make mostly female cards. I bet you do too. Every once in a while I need a masculine card and even rare times, I need a card for a child. This is where you can excel and make a card, I am sure there is one out there in your family or friends family that you can make one for. 

If you are not into toppings, just make sure that it is a Birthday card. 
My card was designed for my daughter-in-law's new nephew. He will be one in July and he is so adorable. He goes by NJ.

Supplies:  My Favorite Things Joyful Heart Bears and matching dies.

Ok, so I made two cards. Once I got going, I could not stop.

  2. Adorable cards for a child Barbara. Love those cute bears and the layout on your first card. The 2nd one is just as cute with that starry sky. Your daughter-in-law's nephew is adorable.

  3. Your two cards are so adorable for that sweet little baby you have pictured. So cute.

  4. Oh what a cutie! Either card will work perfectly for this little man! I love both of them!

  5. Yup I agree with everything you mentioned lol NJ is sooooo adorable--if he likes older women I've got a gal for him--must enjoy crafting lol Penny thinks he's cute! Love your cards, they are tricky to make but once you get all of the cutesy ingredients they seem to come together nicely! Both designs are perfect, sweet little critters!
