And happy birthday to Emilie!

May is certainly the month for birthdays in our family: 2 granddaughters, a step-son, my hubby and mine. Not to mention our anniversary and Mother's Day.  It's a busy, busy month.

But today I want to wish Emilie a happy birthday. She's my youngest granddaughter, and we share a very special bond.  We share a birthday. Actually, when Emilie was born, I gave her MY birthday (so I don't get any older...hehehe).

Emilie is 10 today, and I wanted to make her a special card, too.


I like the soft pastels of the card, and I think Emilie will, too. It's very girly.

So, happy happy birthday to Emilie, my sweet granddaughter.

Happy Birthday to ... Rachel!

My, oh, my, where has the time gone?  It's my oldest granddaughter's 16th birthday today, and I want to wish her a very happy birthday.  I remember when she was born, I was in the delivery room and she wrapped her little hand around my little finger and my heart.  She has grown into a beautiful young lady and is very special to me.

So, for her birthday, I wanted to create a very special card.


In retrospect, I probably should have colored the heart blue, but I kind of like it like it is...it really pops.  There is glitter and mini marbles around the heart. When you open the inside, there is a holder for a gift card or money, or an ATC or anything you would like to tuck in there.

So, Rachel, I hope all your wishes come true today and every day!
