Two cards today.

 It's taken me all day to upload these two cards!! Somehow, when I first tried to upload these pictures, Blogger wouldn't comply and instead, lost me my sig image!!!
Well, there's no sign of THAT, but at least I can upload pics again! BAD BLOGGER!
Phew, glad to get THAT off me chest! lol

Onto this first card.......

 I made this for my Best mate's S-I-L
She's been through some mighty traumatic surgery and I hope this will give her a bit of a smile.
The image and the sentiment, are digi images from Bugaboo Stamps and coloured with Copics.
The striped DP is by Doodlebug Designs.
 (I hope it cheers her, even a little).

This second card, I made at the weekend when a great friend came for a visit with her hubby.
We came up here to my craft room and didn't know what to start with,
so I checked out my e-mails and rifled through Marisa's gorgeous blog (Rosemary Reflections) 
for some inspiration.
We found THIS fabulous card and decided to make our own version of it. 

This is mine......
Marisa amazes me. She uses few stamps, but makes the most pretty cards using punches and dies. 
I'm in awe of her abilities.

Well, that's all from me today. I'm off to cry to my son to help me find my sig.
(He designed my blog, should know how to get it back, 'coz I haven't a clue)!

Awwww Viv....what sweet words - thank you (((hugs)))!! Love your case!! The scalloped edges are fabulous and the wood grain is wonderful behind the owl. I love the colours you used for her (assuming it is a she due to the flowers on her belly LOL!)

Your first card made me LOL. Love that sentiment. Hoping your friend recovers quickly.

Viv, I love your cards, both are fabulous. The hospital food is soooo true!!! I spent a lot of time at the hospital a couple years back with my Mom and I didn't think I'd ever get a decent meal again. *smile*

I tried and tried to leave a comment the other day, blogger wouldn't let me... just sat there starring back at me. I so know your frustations with it. Somedays I just want to scream back at it.

Have an awesome, awesome day!!!
