Happy New Year!

HAPPY NEW YEAR to all you lovely people who honour me with your visits and comments.
This is my first post since my last challenge card as a Peachy Keen Designer.
(I'm now an Alumni along with most of the other DT sisters)! Cool!
OK, onto two cards I made. This one is for my youngest son's 3rd wedding anniversary 
(which was on the 2nd Jan).
This was made with a Sizzix embossing folder, red card and a stamp set by 
Michelle Marsden. (Bought at one of the numerous crafts shop I stalk).

and this for a dear friend's birthday, (which is today the 4th)....
 The image, coloured with Copics, is a Lili of the Valley stamp.
The DP is from a pad by DCWV, called 'Tradewinds'.
Most of the papers, (more like card), are gold embossed. Beautiful!
The paper top left is gold embossed, but you can't see it in this photo.
I hope 2012 brings you Health, Wealth and Happiness!
