Happy Birthday Alexandra

Happy Wednesday! I hope your week has been a good one so far. It is a beautiful day here. I hope the weather is nice where you are too. Thankfully so far this week my health has been better but we have been dealing with a sick dog again. She had been doing great for the last few weeks and had been off the anitbiotic for about 8 days when she relapsed again on  Friday night. The vet put her back on the antibitotic on Saturday but it still took 2 days for her to recover. We really need to figure out what is causing this. We think it is her ear but won't know for sure until someone can look into her inner ear. We have to figure out what kind of procedure can be done to do that and we can afford.  In the meantime she will stay on the antibiotic for another 30 days and we are very thankful she is back to her old self again.
Today is also my niece Alexandra's 17th birthday. I know I say this every year but where does the time go? It seems like yesterday I was at the hospital with my family waiting for her to be born. it was a Wednesday and the day before Thanksgiving that year too. When she was little her favorite characters were Sleeping Beauty and Ariel. Those days are long gone but still loves Hello Kitty so I made this card for her

This year her requested colors were purple, yellow and blue. I found the free SVG file here then made it into a shape card using Silhouette Studio. I used Bitty Dots Lavender Moon and Lemon Tart patterned paper for the heart and the bow. The Happy Birthday sentiment from Fillable Frames #4 was stamped and embossed on the heart. The only place I could think to fit the blue in was the eyes so I added blue jewels. I hope she likes it. She is off to get her tagus pierced today so I will be giving this to her tomorrow with a little spending money. My dads birthday is tomorrow too so we will celebrate both birthdays a long with Thanksgiving then. I will be doing the cooking with Emilia's help. . I will be back soon with something new to share that I have been working on it for awhile now and am really happy with how it is coming out. I look forward to sharing it with you. Until then  I hope your Thanksgiving will be a good one and you have a lot to be thankful for; I know we do.
