2 cards for you today.....

Another week has flown by without any postings but here are 2 cards I made last night. I needed to unwind last night so went and did some colouring with my copics, browsed through the current challenges and this is what I came up with....



I love this image from Funky Kits, a great one for male cards, added glossy accents to the glasses and guitar. The paper is from a K & Co pad I've had for ages. The musical stamp is a magazine freebie, cut out with an SU! punch as is the star that has been trimmed down from the flower punch. Sentiment from Craftwork Cards edged off with a bit of stickles, still not managed to add these evenly - practice practice practice I guess!!
The layout is from this week's challenge at Dutch Dare, the theme from Cute Card Thursday which is Music and/or Dance - reckon he's dancing here, what do you think? and hoping it qualified for Charisma Cardz challenge of using die cuts - the sentiment is die cut and hoping the punched out shapes count also?

The other card is for a lovely lady who works with my husband, I only found out last night it was her birthday today so it was a very quick make.... Happy Birthday Roni x



Paper from a Kay & Co paper stack, organza ribbon from stash. Sentiment from an SU! set which is often in use.

Day off today so off to catch up with some chores, hoping to fit a bit of cardmaking in later although with the sun out I may be in the garden!!
