It's Birthday Card time for my nephew Cole...

This blog post is dedicated to my sweet nephew Cole who turned 18 years old on May 28th!  I was on a mini-vacation on his birthday and tonight I am going to bring him his gift.  I am so proud of this young man who is like a second son to me - or a first son since he was born before my little one!  He is even doing an event to raise money for cancer research and he dedicated his efforts to my husband Stuart!  This brings tears to my eyes every time I think about it - what a sweetheart!!!!

Here are some cards that I made.   The first couple are sympathy and thank you cards that I made at the request of a friend.  The rest are thank you and birthday cards that I made for my nephew and some friends that are helping me out. 

This next card is one of the possible birthday cards for my nephew.  I used the Star Prints stamp set from Papertrey Ink to make the background on the card base.  There is a close-up photo below....

Then I made a second card using the same background but with a Thank You sentiment for a dear friend who gave my son a gift recently...

This last card also uses the same stamp set for the background on the right side but with some patterned paper on the left side.  The star on the focal point was made with the PTI dies that match this set. 

The craft die cut is from a sissix die embossed with a stars embossing folder - from Quickkutz I believe - using my cuttlebug.  The majority of the products used are PTI.

Well that is it for todays post.  Hope you are all enjoying your week so far.  Just 13.5 more days of school and summer vacation will be here!
