Two totally different cards Maria, both fantastic cards, your first design is so lovely, you could use this card for so many different occasions, so a perfect have in your card box, just pick it up, pop on a sentiment and that's it !
Maria's second card is my favourite I think, I just that beautiful background paper, it's so pretty and such a lovely colour, those two adorable owl embellishments are so lovely Maria, they make the card, you really need nothing other than a sentiment.
You have started your new 'crafting' year with a bang Maria, your cards are amazing, thank you so much my lovely XXX
