'Clean & Simple' Tilda Birthday Cards!

Good Morning!
How is everyone's weekend going? I'm rather enjoying mine considering I'm full of cold lol It was grey and rainy yesterday and before I got onto a spot of crafting I decided to do some cooking as it had been a while since I last had.
I made some Cheese Biscuits - some with Jalapeno Peppers on top and some with Sun-Dried Tomatoes ... and of course seeing I had made something savoury I had to make something sweet ... I went for a Chocolate & Coffee Cake! Yum Yum! lol



Anyway's I'l get onto what I have to share with you today. I decided to try something a little different the other day that isn't my usual style, I think the 'Clean & Simple' style is great for last minute cards.

These cards fit into the Challenges at:
PAPERTAKE WEEKLY - ANYTHING GOES
CUTE CARD THURSDAY - NO DESIGNER PAPER
JUST MAGNOLIA & HANGLAR - ANYTHING GOES + GLITTER
MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS - PAPER ONLY
(I noticed that Gems / Pearls had been used by the DT)

I have put Glitter on the Presents on the 1st Card and on the Cake's Icing on the 2nd Card.






Copics Ciao Markers - C1, E00, E21, E31, E33, R11, R22, R32, BV00, BV02, Y11, YG03 YG63, YG67

RECIPE:
Magnolia Stamps
Penny Black Sentiment Stamps
White Glitter & Dew Drops from Stash

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Happy Crafting!

Do I have to admit which set of photos I preferred? *nose plastered on computer screen to sniff the scent of the cheese crackers and coffee cake* LOL They all looked delish!

Your Tilda cards are lovely! I love the simplistic design. They are also colored perfectly. Well done!

The popularity of flashlights or emergency light has increased. Sure, an overcast day may result in a longer recharging time than otherwise, but fog, clouds and even rain should not dampen your solar power goals. As more people chose electric cars, clean and green electricity will become more important in the transportation sector also. One of the great things about an Android tablet is that it offers true multitasking.
