DT card x2

Good morning ladies. I am a bit late today with my DT cards because I got a long lie this morning yay!
Before I start babbling on about other stuff, here's my cards
First for Cute Daisy May We would like to see hot colours on your cards this week.

Do you think I have used enough orange lol. I think this little daisy suits these bright bold colours though, don't you?
Remember to join in with the challenge, you don't have to use the Cute Daisy May downloads but if you have any, we love to see what you do with them.

My 2nd card is for Squigglefly. Kim set us the challenge this week and what a challenge it was for me! She asked us to use 1 layer (only your base card) and 1 embelishment!

I'm not very keen on this card, a bit to plain for my liking but I did my best.
I stamped my base card with some Inkadinkadoo stamps and used some pearl paint just so it wasn't so boring lol. i figured that the pearl paint was not an embelishment because although it looks like pearls, it is just paint so I could get away with adding that. What do you think, did I cheat? I don't care it's done now lol. For my embelishment, I added a Prima which of course is from Aries Crafts and added some more pearl paint. The glitter on it was an accident! I had the card beside me and was playing around with stickles and somehow got some on the flower, so just rubbed it in and made my flower sparkly lol.
Oh and of course I have used an image from Squigglefly, and what a cutie she is too.

So thats the cards done, now I have an apology to give to everyone who joined in with last weeks challenges, I am sorry I didn't get round to visit your blogs and leave comments, I haven't been feeling very well this last week, but I am off to see the doctor this afternoon. I haven't been right since I had a misscarriage a few weeks ago and have started feeling dizzy and stuff so I phoned and spoke to the doctor this morning and she want's to see me this afternoon. I won't go into any more detail on here as it's not the kind of thing you want to read on a card blog lol. Will let you know how I get on when I get back later on today.
Hope you can join in with the challenges this week. Linnie has some lovely new daisy May sheets if you fancy some new digi images and Squigglefly also have some great new images too, they just keep getting better and better.

Hi Hun,

Lora, I think you did a fab job on both of your cards! That orange card is really cute and I'm not that big a fan of orange!
Kim really did set quite a challenge using one layer and one embellilshment! I thinkt he stamped swirls help to make it not so plain looking a lot; that was a great idea you had! Super coloring on the image too.
Hope you feel better soon!
