Spring cards!!

Morning all, I cant quite believe that we're back to Monday morning again so soon, where are the weeks (and more importantly the weekends) going?  I spent Saturday in fancy London town to meet my friend, but unfortunately engineering works on the tube screwed it up and I missed meeting her.  Darren thought it great though as he got to go to Farlows on Pall Mall (the only fishing supplier with a Royal Warrant) and gaze at his equivalent of pretty things.  Given that it was cold and snowy outside yesterday I snuggled down in my craft room and got creating, the first card is a birthday card for Darren's grandad whose birthday is in March - I know, a masculine card, early?!!  I've used the spring fold technique, along with the colour scheme specified in this month's design team challenge over on In Love With Stamping - old olive, bordering blue, close to cocoa and whisper white.    

I also had a comission to make a 40th Birthday Card, I'd been stroking my Bella Bleu papers for a while and decided it was time to cut into them.  I used the colours in the papers to define the card colours.  The '40' is cut using my CraftROBO, other than that it's stamping and cutting with my guilotine and nestabilities.
