Today is my sweet girl’s birthday! I can’t believe she is 11 years old today.
About a week ago she told me, “Mom, I can’t wait to see my special card you’re making.” I’m so happy she appreciates my cards, but man, oh man, now the pressure is on to make a card she will really like. I hope she will like this one.
Since my crafty mojo has been lacking since I was laid off in September, I had to search my Pinterest files for inspiration. I found some in this gorgeous card from Anna Marie Nelson.
I wanted to share some pictures of my baby with you. I don’t have any digital photos from the day she was born but here is one from her 1st birthday.
And here is a recent photo. Both show the same sweet smile.
Happy Birthday Liz!
