I finally made a couple of cards

Good morning all you lovely people and thank you so much for your well wishes. I am feeling so much better this morning. It turns out that it's a viral infection I have, not a chest infection after all!
Anyway, these are my very first cards made this year.

This is a first outing for my new Hero Arts stamp bought some time in December and I thought it would make a nice 'thinking of you' card. Methinks it is a very versatile stamp and could be used for many and varied occasions. I chose this time to heat emboss it and I think it's quite effective.
Ooops! Nearly forgot to say that this is also a first airing for this set of Nellie Snellen dies so this is a card of firsts :o)

This one is a commissioned new baby card for one of our band members who is about to become a Greatgranny for the first time. She liked those other baby cards I made (scroll down to see them) but she didn't want "those cartoon things" (that's what she calls stamped images) for the main image so I used my own photograph of my Greatgrandson's feet. Background stamps are from Woodware. I hope she likes it!

I have covered the text inside for privacy.
First use of the Martha Stewart edge punch I bought last week :o)
