Today is the birthday of three very special people.
My Great-nephew, Ethan, my fellow Jem, Silver Elite Twin and good friend, Julie Wade, 
and my good friend and Stampin' Up! down-line, Lynda.

Here are the cards that I have made

For Ethan's card, I have once again used the fabulous fancy fold card that my fellow Jem, Silver Elite Sister and good friend Amanda showed us on the Jems monthly Blog hop 

Thick Whisper White card stock was used for the base card and Pacific Point card stock
was used to cut out Ethan's name with the Large Letters Die.
The DSP used for the back and side panels was Party Animal
and the Happy Birthday greeting was stamped using a Big On Birthdays stamp set stamp.
I intend to use this design for all the mens birthdays that I have this month!!

For Julie's card I used the Flourish Thinlits dies and cut out the various components using
 Silver, Smoky Slate and Perfect Plum cardstock.
The greeting was stamped using Wetlands stamp set, 
which is sadly retiring at the end of the month (sob)

For Lynda's card I used the Eastern Medallion Thinlits.
Thick Whisper White, Smoky Slate and Blushing Bride card stock.
The background was done by Debossing using the Petal Burst Embossing Folder.

Here's hoping that you all have a wonderful day today!!
