Scrappin' Sista's Birthday Swap Hop

Hello and welcome to my Birthday Swap Blog hop.  My birthday is actually on the 11th.  Each month, I host swaps on her blog and so I thought it would be cool to share projects that have been created using the swap items that we’ve received.  I would like to also extend a personal invitation for you to join in with the fun each month.

For your viewing pleasure, I've created two cards.  

The first is a masculine birthday card. I hope you like them. I used a swap element from Bonnie at A Scrap Above.  The materials list is posted just below the pictures.

patterened paper - DCWV Nana's Kitchen, cardstock - Recollection's, brads, buttons from my stash, sentiment printed on my computer

The second is also a birthday card. I used a swap element from Kisa.  The materials list is posted just below the pictures.
