Mother-in-law's birthday

Yet another, December birthday is my mother-in-law on the 16th.  It is difficult when these birhdays come so close to Christmas because it's hard to fit in two celebrations so the poor person many times has a combined holiday/birthday party.  My mother-in-law lives alone and will be 88 years old.  She lives about 60 miles away from us and my sister-in-law who is about 10 miles away from us.  We are trying to convince her to move closer to us and to get a senior apartment so she wouldn't have all the yard work and house maintenance, but she is rather fiesty which has kept her going this long.  Bugaboo just came out with this new image which I thought would be perfect for the front of her birthday card.  I also used their Santa freebie for my second card.  My third card is using this weeks Mojo sketch and the Colour Q scheme for a sympathy card.
