Simple, small, easy

My friends know that they can not expect a birthday card from me on time. My excuse? the same as for anything: "I am Spanish!" Like in most occasions, the excuse is genuine, in Spain we do things differently. Like the French or the Italians do certain things in a different manner, like so the Spaniards.
Personally, I am pretty proud of being Spanish, even if that means that I am not very good at sending birthday cards, because such tradition does not exist in Spain. Yes, in Spain, people do not send birthday cards, nor thank you nor congratulations. If anything, a christmas card, and even that is rare. So why did I started making cards when I was growing up in Spain? i had the creativity and artist quality paper leftover from my father artwork, it seem like the natural thing to do, just play with paper.

Big intro done. That was just to explain that as soon as I could I wanted to a stamp set that included something about belated birthdays. The Double Sayings set covered that one. A simple, small and easy card to make is perfect for those sort of occasions.
