New Cards... At Long Last

I've had my stitches out since Monday and the range of movement i have is vastly improved so I have been able to do some crafting HURRAH!!! This is a stencil which I ran through the cuttlebug on some Mirri card, I also embossed the background of the card after inking the actual folder with metallic white, I added a simple peel off to finish off. This is for Bah! Humbug.

This is the card for my MIL from DH, I used some DCWV card stock, created a stepper using my new Hougie Board, I cut the ladies, sorry I don't know where they came from but I liked the style of them and the letter using the Robo. I coloured the ladies and the letter with promarkers added lots of Glamour Dust for some sparkle and stuck it together. I'm really pleased with it and so is DH, I hope MIL will like it too! I am entering this one in the challenge at Oh La La.
I printed this Tiddly Inks image as I love the way they are both leaning at the same angle I coloured it with Promarkers, inks and a fine liner. I created the background using an embossing plate and sanded it lightly to give it texture. I added some stones and a message to finish it off. I am entering this card in a few challenges:

This last one is for my niece, it's all from a Kanban Kit except from the ribbon which is from my stash. I am entering this one in Craft Us Crazy -- Easter/Spring

Thanks to everyone who left me comments this last little while it really has helped keep my spirits up, thanks for popping by today and any comments you are kind enough to leave are really appreciated.
