A Special Birthday Card....

Hi Friends,
Here to share a very special birthday card for my sister Natalie who will be the big "50" on January 12th.

Happy Birthday Natalie!!!!

We are going to a special birthday dinner for her tonight.  For two whole days she will be 2 years older than me!  I like to tease her about being my "much older" sister for those two days!  Just kidding!  We missed being Irish Twins by just 48 hours!  Growing up everyone thought we were twins anyway which was a lot of fun!
My sister Natalie is one of the most positive people I know.  She has gumption, fortitude, and walks closely with the Lord in good times and bad.  I am so blessed to call her my sister and to have her as my best friend too!  She reminds me so much of my Grandma Joyce who is no longer with us.  So in the shaker part of this card I used some of my Grandma Joyce's sequins and seed pearls that I received after she passed on.  I thought it was appropriate for Natalie's special day!  The "Happy" sentiment is from Paper Sweeties. The tiny tag and numbers are from Papertrey Ink.

Here is a picture that I have shared before of the two of us at my sister Beth's wedding shower last year....

Thanks for taking a look!
