Easy Peasy...

I have a couple of birthday cards to share with you today. I work in a hospital, and budgets are always tight. We rely heavily on our volunteers, and in our department, we're very lucky to have 3 great ones. Well, two of them have birthdays this week, Dolores and Hank. To wish them a Happy Birthday, and to thank them for all of their hard work, we had a little cake for them today, and I made them some cards that we all signed.

Both of these cards took me less than 5 minutes to do (I realize Lauren has a great challenge about cards like this today, but this isn't quite her challenge...I hope to get to that later this week) None the less...super cute, and super FAST!

Here's Dolores' card:

I used the So Swirly Jumbo Wheel from SU! On Brocade Blue CS in ivory craft ink. The sentiment is from PTI's Birthday Basics...I accented the swirls with some birdal confetti from M's, and some silver stickles...I'm lovin' that touch of sparkle...here's a closer look...
fun, right?

Now onto Hank...I got this AWESOME paper from Piggy Tales over the weekend at CKC Hartford...it's from the Little Boy Blue collection. Thought it would be perfect for a 'guy card'. Now - I have a little confession to make. normally I wouldn't put bling on a guy card, BUT - in my haste to put this card together, I assembled all of my layers before realizing that I'd like to use brads on the ends of the tag die...but I really don't like for them to go all the way through the card...so I opted for bling. At least it's brown, right??

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you're all having a wonderful week!

Both cards are fantastic! The first one is absolutely gorgeous! The stickles really added a beautiful effect! The 2nd one is a terrific masculine card and the bling looks terrific on it. Oh I can't tell you how many times I've glued my layers together and forgot to add my brads...now when I do this I just use a scissors and cut the prongs off the brads and add them with a glue dot.
