A couple of cards

Hello there...Happy Thursday!

I hope this week is being kind to you! The cake sale at Brownies last night went very well...I even treated myself to a sweet treat....

I can confirm that it was a rather yummy blackberry cupcake!
I am here this morning to share a couple of new cards with you....
First off one to make you smile.....
Hee, hee! I actually made this card for my boss Viv...luckily we have a very good relationship and she saw the funny side of the card!
The image is coloured with my Promarkers and I have gone with a rather retro looking backing paper in orange to match the vivid blue plain paper.
I'd like to enter this card at:
Passion for Promarkers - "Birthdays"
Wags 'n' Whiskers - Girl Birthday
The second card I have does not include a stamped I'm revisting one of my favourite crafts - paper crafting.....
I've gone with a clean and simple finish for this card, letting the birdie take centre stage! My bird has been made out of patterned and plain backing paper, I have added googly eyes and some etching with my Promarkers around the plain paper. Finally I stamped my "thank you" sentiment.
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenge:
Simon Says Stamp - things with wings
Thanks for popping by today,
Wedgie xxx
PS....I'm off to a cocktail making class tonight! Wish me luck....I hope I don't enjoy the cocktails too much and forget how they are actually made!!!
