Viva La Verve and WOW! Overload!!!!

I know, I know, it's been a long time!  I've been snowed under with work just lately, but I'm hoping to be able to get more card time in now :)
I'm going to keep the chatter brief because there's a few pictures to look at today.
Ok, I have all of FIVE of my cards for this months' Viva La Verve.  As it was my birthday last week, I had a whole bunch of thank you cards to make.  This happily coincides with the challenge over at WOW! Embossing Powder this month which is 'Anything Goes - Thank You'.  Well...I've got a whole bunch of entries!!
As per usual, I'm cutting it really close for both deadlines, so without further ado - here are my cards!
Week 1
