Happy Birthday Alexa!

I have been very busy this month enjoying my family here at the beach.  I love when the kids and grandkids come to visit!
My oldest granddaughter Alexa turned 22 on July 9th and I decided to make a special little card for a very special granddaughter.
This is one of my favorite pictures of Alexa.  She was about 3 years old and blowing bubbles on grandma's front porch.

Because my grandchildren had several grandmothers and I was the one who lived the farthest away
they call me Grandma-Far-Away.....I love my name!


Happy Birthday Alexa!
I have entered this card in

  2. Not only is your granddaughter beautiful but her birthday card is amazing! She must be so proud to have such a talented grandmother like you. I know if my grandmother had given me one as nice as this I would treasure it forever.

    1. Thank You Pat! Hope you had a terrific vacation!

  3. The photo on the card makes this a really beautiful card. Very pretty granddaughter too!

  4. WOW! Your card is gorgeous and so is Alexa! Yes time sure does fly by (my granddaughter is 23) and more and more I appreciate every moment I have with my kids/family!
