2 cards for 2 birthdays on the same day

Once upon a time I was privileged to work with two very special people, who happen to share the same birthday, just different years. They still work together, so every year I send them a card each to the same address. I just have to be very careful to put the right card in the right envelope. ;-)

Here are this year's cards. Debs's is being entered into these challenges:
Cute Card Thursday with a 123 recipe (1 ribbon, 2 circles, and 3 flowers)
Colour Create with pink, blue, cream and grey
Simon Says with a bingo challenge - I chose punches, embossing and ribbon
House Mouse and Friends with embossing (Cuttlebug Happy Birthday folder)
Friday Sketchers with a sketch by Whiff of Joy

And Chris's is being entered into these challenges:
Basic Grey with flower power using my brand new Marjolaine pack {drool}
Spoonful of Sugar with blue and green
Stampin' for the Weekend with "get warmed up"
Sketch Saturday

I had such a fun afternoon!

I got a chuckle from that Garfield card. I've got a orange tabby that's pure Garfield, I've nicknamed him "Naught Boy" but enough about me...your card is adorable and fun. I'm glad I saw it.
Thanks for joining us at Paper Pretties.

I just left a comment on your cute Garfield card but I think I told you thanks for playing with Paper Pretties but that's my other DT, I meant to thank you for playing with us at Stampin' for the Weekend. Sorry if I confused you.
