Happy Birthday to my FAV Twins!

That's right! It's Eulanda and Simone's birthday!!! They're....*gulp* 40th! (and I figure it's ok to say that as they've already said it themselves all over the net! LOL)They are not only FABULOUS crafters (I'm proud to say they're both part of my own Crafty Catz) but amazing friends IRL of mine. For their birthday I asked some other crafty friends to send me their cards abit early, so I could gather a bunch and then send them a parcel full of goodness to open on their big day! As adults we all know what it's like to have our birthday's fall in the middle of the week!'s like NOTHING! LOL We celebrate (if we celebrate) the preceding or following weekend. And I didn't want their actual special day to go un-eventful! So... they recieved a package of surprises from me today! And I couldn't have a package without some cards from MOI too! So... here are my cards for the girls (they got em now, so I can show you!)

Up first, is Simone's, I've used the new FAB sketch at Pink Ink ... and used my favorite Maggie...
And over at Magnolia Down Under Challenges they want a *Secret* on your card, or to hide something, So I've hidden the birthday wish with this little tag, and will be entering this over there.

Sure hope you liked it Simone!!!
Now Eulanda's card gave me quite a challenge! I dont know WHAT was killing my mojo but OMG! I think I coloured, recoloured, threw out, started over and gave up 100 times!!! I was way overthinking it cause...well... it was a card for EULANDA!!! LOL *sigh* And I know I hate it when the girls say that to me, cause I always say I love them ALL but.... still..... I get it now. 
ANYHOW! Believe it or not, I started with the same sketch as the above card, and well same idea, to enter the Magnolia Down under with this one as well..... but.... Here it is.
LOL... I am happy with the end result...but honest Eulanda it was NOT going to be pink... it just took a turn in that direction and I couldn't go back! LOL

I hope you BOTH had an amazing day! I was thinking of you all day long!!!
