 Just a quick update :  NO PUPPIES YET - but the signs show that it might start tonight or tomorrow.  She is really nesting which started this morning.

Ok now on the the most important info:  My BABY GIRL TURNED 17 TODAY!!!!!
( Please no comments on how old I must be ....  lol  )
I can't believe it.  I remember the best years of her favorite things to do.. between the age of 2 to 4 you could not keep cloths on her.  The moment we walked in the door off came everything but her panties.. her favorite Little Mermaid.. hehehe.  The other thing this little girl use to do that drove us up the wall was she had to eat pizza all the time.  It was her favorite and she would throw tantrums if we didn't have it a couple of times a week.  She was about 2 1/2 -3, I would buy those microwave frozen single serves.  Then she would have to crawl on the coffee table and sit there like a little queen bee and smile at me like:  See mommy.. I won.  Now she is 17 and a fine young lady.  Skinny as a bone and some times a little to big for her britches but what teenager isn't. 

To you Riss I want you to know how much I love you and feel like you are growing up way to fast.  I am afraid you'll be gone before I know it.

Ok on to why you are here.  I made her birthday card and wanted to share it with you and a few challenges.  You need to understand/know the love of her life is her dog, TYSON,  little Apple Head Chihuahua.  Well she bought him all by herself last year for her birthday, he was only 6 weeks old and you could hold him in one palm.
Here is Tyson.
Now look at the card I made her :
I searched high and low for a Chihuahua stamp and again I found the perfect one on my favorite site Addicted To Rubber Stamps .  DOESN'T IT LOOK JUST LIKE TYSON!  Blue and pink are her favorite colors, and the heart embelis are just a sign of my love to her.
