Something Simple and Something New...

That title sounds like the wedding poem, it wasn't intended that way but I quite like it haha!!
Anyway a couple of cards to share with you, the first is my Something Simple, it's another really plain card, I really think I could get into this style of crafting as once I get over the amount of blank space there is I find the images look so much nicer when they aren't crowded by pattern
The cupcake stamps are free from the latest issue of the Docrafts magazine, the sentiment stamp is from another Marion Emberson kit from QVC which I bought a few years ago, the images are coloured in with promarkers and highlighted with touches of glitter
And the second is my Something New, it's not very exciting really but the new thing is the piece of ribbon stapled onto the heart, I am terrified of embellishments but have tons of gems/ribbon scraps etc.... and I need to start being a bit braver and using them up. I always get inspiration from cards with lots of embellishments but just never have the courage to put them on mine so here it is....

This is my Husbands valentines card from me, the papers are from the latest free download by Summer Driggs, the letters/ribbon and gems are from my stash and the heart was made by drawing round a cookie cutter and cutting it out, it was not made using the exspensive Silhouette machine that I bought a while back after convincing the Hubby that I couldn't live without it, if he knew I was drawing round cookie cutters instead I think he'd kill me lol!
I hope you like them
