What have I got myself into now?

Hi all,
I have an interview today at a supply teaching agency, so I can't be too long. Last night, I went to a PTA meeting for Daisy's school, and somehow I managed to become the treasurer! I really must learn to keep my mouth shut as I now have this job for about 8 years if I want (until Martha has left the school!)
Over at Creative Craft, it's our 2nd anniversary and we have some wonderful sponsors. Our theme is Congratulations. I have two cards for your inspiration today. The first one uses a lovely image by Meljen's Designs. The paper is a magazine freebie I had years ago and found just after I had made my bright card for a previous DT challenge. So, I hope you have your sunglasses at hand.
My second card uses an image by Stampin Boutique and is more in my colour comfort zone. I'm not completely sure I like this one, I must admit. I'm not sure why, and it may grow on me.
Don't forget to check the projects from the rest of the DT.

Two gorgeous cards love the brightness of the first one and the fab image and bow in the second. Good luck with the interview and your new position as treasurer, rather you than me lol.
