Whiff of Joy (DT) and Flutter By Wednesday

This has to be a very fast post because I'm not sure exactly when the challenges I want to enter close but I know it's about NOW.  So - two cards - two challenges both using my new DCWV Garden Party paper and both using gorgeous WOJ stamps.
My first card is using Henry with a cupcake - he is sooooo cute - and I want to enter it into this week's Whiff of Joy challenge.  I used their great sketch altering only the placement of some of the design elements for this boy's birthday card.  I know it's a cute image for a boy but I haven't used him before and I so wanted to and  I don't think he is girly in any way.  I attached some balloons to his tail using scraps from my drawer and opted for masculine (and chocolatey) colours.  WOJ have a design team call and I would love to be a part of their great team.
My second card is for Flutter By Wednesday.  They are having a big birthday bash with lots of lovely prizes.  I used their sketch, substituting rectangles for Nesties Labels 4 and using butterfly paper and butterfly accents.
Both images are coloured with Copics and Promarkers and my sentiments are all Stampin Up.  I'm sorry this is such a rushed posting and I'm sorry I have been neglecting my blogging buddies again but I will catch up - I promise!

Hi Lesley - I have turned the music off - my speakers are kaput, and it is supposed to be random, so don't know why it keeps sticking!!
