A couple of challenges....

I have had a busy weekend so far but I wanted to complete a few challenges on the CBC forum.




I made this card for a challenge set by Sue, using rubberstamping for the background and the main image. Well I am no stamper, but I have started buying a few stamps lately and Last week I bout a heat gun for embossing. This is my first attempt at using it!! I have lots to learn and need some tips please ladies!!
This next card was made by my Daughter Leah, isn't she clever?!!!! She made it for her Nan, and I have to say I have tried to make these cards and failed miserably, I cannot seem to get the folds to meet properly. I think she has more patience than me!
Well I am off now to do some more challenges.

Well done, Leah! Great card. Love your stamped and embossed card - would never guess it's your first time at heat embossing - it's perfect.
