Birthday Cards

Hello! Here is my latest creation.
This blue and grey birthday card was inspired by this card, . Here is the recipe:
stamps: Simply Said, Studio G
Ink: cool caribbean, basic black
Paper: whisper white, cool caribbean, Bazzil grey
tools: SU corner punch, marvy square scallop punch
embelishments: SU white grosgrain ribbon, mm rhinestone brad

This was really quick and easy. I may do a bunch of these for my stash. I hate to do that because if I accidentally send someone the same card twice I'll feel silly.
I need to do a birthday calendar. Any suggestions? I have never done one and now that I am back to work I think I need to get organized!
Please take the In color poll!

On my continued quest to use up old paper so that I can justify buying new dp from SU, I ran across the Cranberry Crisp In Color paper from last year. I made the penguin card for my friend Heather. She is the one who pointed me to Splitcoast. Need I say more?! She also pointed me to the post in the Splitcoast forum, general stampin talk, where I found a post to the SU Spring Mini! Too Cute Sets!!!!
Here is the recipe for the penguin card:

Quickutz Sillouette, cards

Well, I have finally found time to upload some cards. I have gone back to teaching and have so little for stamping, let alone, blogging. I am going to try to do the blog thing at least twice a week now. It is so fun!
The cards are simple ones this time. I used Bazzil textured cardstock as the base of the masculine card. I love the blues in this paper. I got it at Archiver's as a freebie for doing a crop. The white is SU. I also used the SU ticket corner punch. The brads are from Spare Parts. I love finding them for half off at Hobby Lobby! The brown satin ribbon is from Target. 15 yards for three bucks in the wedding section.
The girlie card base is Bazzil black card stock and whisper white SU cardstock. The floral stamp is by Penny Black. The flower is Bazzil Wings with a MM rhinestone. The Sentiment is from a clear set, I'm sorry I can't remember the name. The black stitched ribbon is from Archiver's $1.99 bin!
My hubby spoiled me this year for Christmas. He got me a new Dell laptop and the Sillouette by Quickutz. Is he good or what?
More to come soon!
