Gemini Birthday Girls!

There must be something in the water 9 months before June each year! Or perhaps moms-to-be just want to time their happy event with the coming of the summer months. Whatever the case, we have several Gemini babies in our crafty group! To celebrate, we decided to go out for dinner on Friday night and had a blast. What a hoot! My tummy still hurts from giggling so much (ok, maybe from eating too much)!! LOL!

It was loads of fun creating these birthday cards for my friends (and fellow crafters). The pink one was for Kim Prince and the turquoise one was for Julie Mutch. Happy birthday ladies!
