Magazine Freebies Card and Quickie Birthday Card

My goodness, I haven't posted from Thursday, the days just fly in. I have been crafting though and wanted to share two cards I've made  the first one is using Magazine Freebies, I just can't resist Magazine Freebies they get me every time. Oh talking about magazines a quick funny story for you, my son is on tour in Afghanistan so we send out little parcels of goodies to him, so my 25 year old daughter was on the phone wanting to know what else she could put in his parcel she was making him, innocently I told her to buy him some mens mags, she went quiet and then said "Really?" I replied "Yeah, I'm sure they don't get much choice out there if any" she then said " umm .... well what type" I replied " I don't know, something about cars, bikes etc"  my daughter then went into fits of laughter and said " Oh Mum, I thought you meant like playboy" Thank goodness we got that cleared up before she went to buy them. I could just imagine Adams face when he received his parcel from his sister lol.
Anyway, back to my card, like I said the stamps and papers are freebies from mags and I've coloured the image with promarkers and used glossy accents on the decorations and the designer paper, took no time at all which is always good when your making a ton of Christmas cards. 

My second card is an 'omg I haven't got a card' Card lol. I had an hour to make this and it was for a boy, I always have extra girly cards in the cupboard but never any extra male one's so I got my beautiful Stampfairy Image printed out, flew over it with copics and bit of embossing here and there, some brads and a bow, viola.

Here is a little close up of this cutie. I messed the rub on sentiment on the parcel a bit but I hope he didn't notice lol.
