Birthday Parade

Today I have a birthday card made using Animal Parade by Rachelle Anne Miller.  Since most of the birthday cards in my stash are feminine, I tried to make one that would be suitable for boys or men.

I don't have much to chat about.  My daughter Liz earned her EMT certification this past week.  Next week she leaves to go to UW-Green Bay to start working her way to be a surgeon.  I'm a bit nervous about my baby leaving the nest, especially with COVID.    Other than that I am lucky that I love my job and my company is doing well.  Work is keeping me busy.

I guess that is all for now.  Stay safe!   Thank you for stopping by!
