For this week, I have a very special card and a lot of reasons to celebrate. First, I am officially starting the countdown to my daughter's graduation. In five days she will be a high school graduate.  OMG!! I still remember the first day I took her to school, to me she is still my little baby, but I have to accept, she has become a young lady and this past year, she has accomplished so much...I don't have words to describe how proud I am of  her. Second, as in every important moment in my life Kathya and her family are coming to Puerto Rico to attend Monica's graduation. I am so grateful to have them in my life. Again, I don't have words to thank them for being with me in this joyful moment.  And last, but not least, this past week, we celebrated my father's 84th birthday. What a blessing to be able to celebrate his life, because he is a very special father, grandfather and great-grandfather. And today, I am sharing with you the card I made for him.  Hope you like it as much as he did.
