Christine and Christine

Today is my cousin's and my friend's birthday. They're born 6 years apart, but both are named Christine. I also have 2 friends in my college/sorority group that are both named Shannon. The "Christines" always say they're much cooler, because they share the same birthday, lol.

Ironically, both my cousin and my friend are animal lovers. They both own pet cats, so I thought it would be perfect to use my Gingerbell set to make birthday cards for them. It's a little altered, but I also used Sweet Sunday Sketch #38 for this.

Paper: My Minds Eye
Stamps: The Greeting Farm
American Craft Brads, Copics, Crystal Stickles, and MS Border Punch


My cousin lives in Portland and my friend lives in Corvallis, so unfortunately I won't be able to celebrate with them today. Everyone have a great Saturday! I don't really have any plans. Will probably do laundry and craft a bit.

  15. What a sweet card-makes me miss my kitty. The Christine's will love it I'm sure.

    Isn't it funny how many people have the same name. With us, it seems all of our guy friends are named Mike. See that's another good thing about your name being so unique.
