Back to the crafting table

Well I have a whole raft of cards to be working on at the moment; here are a couple I did last night.

This one is for one of the mums in my son's class.  She has volunteered to cook dinner for all the other mums (14 of us) at her house on Thursday and although we have all chipped in for a present, I wanted to say thanks myself too.

I used some handmade paper which I wetted on the edges to curl it up and distress it.  The sentiment is embossed onto whitewash cardstock and then just matted onto a larger nestie circle.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid (see sidebar - they're GORgeous)

And I also finished off this more masculine card that's been knocking around for a while awaiting that certain finishing touch:

Again it's handmade paper on top of some backing paper I got in a swap.  Lime ribbon with buttons stuck on top and FINALLY finished off with a sentiment made using my one of my 2 (!) Martha Stewart punches.
