My last birthday card for the month!  This card is for my older brother.  He's an avid White Sox fan so I decided to make him a card based off of that!  I found the logo online and converted the .jpg file into an .svg file.  I converted it into 3 cuts and cuts them out on Sure Cuts A Lot.  The happy birthday was also cut using Sure Cuts A Lot and shadowed as well.  

The inside sentiment was printed on a piece of designer paper found at Hobby Lobby.  The second sox logo was also a .jpg converted to an .svg file and cut out with sure cuts a lot. I don't know what I'd do without that program!

A card for my older sister for her birthday!  Nice and very simple, just to highlight the sheet music paper I picked up in a scrapbooking store in my travels.  The sentiment is printed onto kraft paper, and I just lightly stamped the paper with metallic inks from the Martha Stewart teardrop ink pads.  I added brads and that's it!

I made the envelope using my Martha Stewart scorboard and lined the inside with the same paper.  Nice elegant card for my older sister.

Quick card for my brother-in-law for his birthday!  I have a lot of birthday's coming up this month so I have to get cracking on the card making!  The cake is cut from the Smiley "cartridge".  The Smiley cartridge was a special download for the Gypsy, and it has a ton of really really cute cuts.  I made him a red velvet cake with white frosting since it's his favorite and the sentiment was printed from the computer.  Nice simple card with some stickles on the flame.

The cardstock for the base was using the charcoal cardstock from Papertrey Ink that I just purchased.  It's so lovely as a base since it's so heavy, I'm so glad I purchased it (in black and white as well)!
