February 2013 cards

Hi everyone hope you are all well and looking forward to another weekend full of crafting. I am hoping that those of you who attended the local craft show last weekend are full of inspiration & may be persuaded to demonstrate a card or 2 in the next few months (hint, hint),  just to ease the pressure on Sylvia & myself as I think we are both struggling at the moment due to our personal lives infringing on our crafting times. Just let us know over the weekend if you fancy having a go.
Begging over lets get back to this months cards.
I have tried to limit the amount of things I used for my 2 cards, so with that in mind I have found 2 new techniques that use similar resources to achieve 2 different looks PLUS as an added bonus I have done 2 different cards for each technique so you can choose which card you prefer to do on the day. They both use an Embossing / Die cutting machine so if you do own a Cuttlebug etc. plus embossing folders / dies & are willing to bring it along it will speed up things considerably & you may even get both versions of each card done.
