Keep It Simple

A couple of simple style challenge cards today.  The first is for Less Is More sketch challenge #34.
I've used a Papermania stamp set from last year's Christmas range (or was it the year before), this year's haven't even seen any ink yet!
The second card is for Allsorts challenge #122 - Keep It Simple combined with the Daring Cardmakers Dr Seuss challenge.
The stamps are from a little foam back set the children have.  Nice to be able to borrow their supplies for once.  Should Ta-da! be Ta-dah!  Saw it spelt differently after I'd stamped it directly onto the card, grrr.

Lovely cards! Thanks for joining in with the DCM dare this week.
The Dr Seuss card is fab. And what a nice change to be using the kids' stash - reminds me I have some classic Winnie the Pooh foam stamps from my early crafting days I should dig out and use. :)
