Back to normal?

Well I'm at home today, which is a good job as I really do have washing to catch up with, but I'm not really sure what normal is any more.  So as I'm at home, Steve is away!  At present our next time spent together looks like it might be Christmas!  
As usual I have too many things to do in the day but I'm getting there, although I still need to get my class for Craftaganza finalised.  I have all the elements, they just need putting together.
In the meantime I have a couple of cards to share with you.  This one was inspired by challenges at:
2 sketches 4 you - Kazan's #66

 Supplies used:
Stamps - clearly hand stamped kit - 3 birds/Crafter's Companion
Papers - SWALK CD2
Nestabilities - labels 4
Colouring medium - Copic Ciaos

This next card was inspired by the challenges at:
Papertake Weekly - Autumn Skies
A Spoonful of sugar - distressing

Supplies used:
 Stamps - clearly hand stamped kit - 3 birds/Crafter's Companion
Embossing powder - Sheena Douglass Copper
Embossing ink - versamark
Nestabilities - labels 11
Twine - Papertrey Ink

A quick how to for the background on this one:
Stamp the leaves with versamark
Sprinkle on the embossing powder and gently tap of the excess
Use you heat gun to set the powder, until it goes shiny.
Use cut and dry foam to apply you distress inks.
Use several colours to build up your mottled background

Right I'm off to bed as I've got another extremely busy day tomorrow.
