Today is my oldest daughter's 13th birthday!! I can't believe I am officially a mother to a teenager. Where did the time go? It seems like I just brought her home from the hospital. The little tiny peanut. Now she is all grown up and taller than her mama. Although...this isn't a difficult feat since I am only 4'10.5" tall. lol!!! This card is also her birthday card. I just know she is going to love it!!!!!
Have a creatively wonderful day!!
