An apology and a couple of cards

I would like to apologise for being such a bad blogger at the moment.  My eldest came home from Uni last week with his first bout of tonsillitis this year, so I am a bit behind with everything at the moment.  It was also my husband's birthday yesterday, I will share the cards that I made him later, I haven't even managed to edit the photographs yet!

These are two more of the cards that I made using the Little Shabby Chic Delights Papercrafting Kit.  This one uses the one of the penny slider kits but I decided to make a normal card with it:

 This second one uses one of the toppers and papers:

I would like to enter these cards into the following challenges:

Through The Craft Room Door Challenge - Always Anything Goes
Fan-Tastic Tuesday Challenge 110 - Anything Goes with a twist: Something beginning with a B (Butterfly, Boots)

Thank you for popping in today, your company is much appreciated.

Oh I'm sorry for your son. Not Fun, I know. I love the gold on your first card and those boots are pretty and would be put to very good use here today. Tons of rain last night and today not to mention heavy winds.

No need to apologise Pauline, life gets in the way sometimes and I do hope your Son gets better soon. You always manage to blog at least a card a day with all your DT and magazine commitments as well as family I think you're doing a fab job. I love today's cards, both are bright and cheerful.
