Happy Birthday Card for my BFF

Good Morning!

It seems that I have been making a lot of birthday cards lately.  This one is special, it is for my BFF.  Now some of you long time followers know this, but those of you that are new to my blog may not know that my BFF is five years old!  Yes, I am best friends with a five year old.  How did this happen?  Megan is my next door neighbor, I have known her since she was born.  Last year, she started getting the mail from the mailbox.  When I saw that, I decided to slip some mail in there for her.  What fun is getting the mail when there is never anything for you?  So I would give her little cards and notes and sign them "Your Secret Friend".  Megan soon figured out that I was the one sending her the cards...I did give her hints (I have blue eyes, red hair and a BIG dog).  Whenever Meggie would call me on the phone or knock on my door and I would say "who is it?" she would get confused and instead of saying "It's your secret friend" she would say "it's your best friend" and that is how we ended up being BFF's.  Happy Birthday Megan!  I hope that everyone that sees a chance to make a difference (however small) in a child's life does so.  Give your heart to a child, you will never be sorry!

Once again because I was giving this card to a younger child I went with a simple theme.  The digital stamp is
Penny and her Teddy and the sentiment is Happy Birthday To A Little Lady both from Digital Delights by Louby Loo.

Have a Great Day!
