Birthday Wishes

Hello Delightful friends and family,
Hooray it's Friday, right??  Hope you have a great weekend. I will be busy on Saturday at the church preparing for an event that I will be speaking at in March and also for our Ladies Bible Study on March 3.  So it's doubtful that I'll be spending much time in my craft room this weekend.  I did have a little time before Jake and Addy came over this morning to make a birthday card for my great niece who is turning two.  She lives in New York but is in Oregon to visit her grandparents (my sister). My mom and my other sister will be heading up there this weekend to celebrate with little Miss Laurel, so the card and gift will be making it to her in time for her party. Happy Birthday Laurel!!!

I'll be entering this card in the following challenges:
