A sad and a happy card

My first personal card this week, was a condolences card.  My friend's Nan passed and I made this for her.  (This is the first hand made card she had received - so I will be making her a more happy one next time !)


Papermania papers in black and white.
Black cardstock
embossing folder
and sizzix swirls and flower dies.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Cardmakin Mamas - Cut it out challenge
Wags'n'whiskers - black plus ribbons or pearls

NOW for the happy card.  It is my best friend's birthday and since I moved away we meet up once a month.  This is the card I made for her birthday. My mate lives in North Cornwall.  The gorgeous teal/turquoise colours in this card remind me of the fabulous coastal scenery in a place that will always be dear to my hear.   The gorgeous Sarah Kay image was of course coloured with promarkers.
