Golden birthday

My dear daughter will turn 20 on the 20th to have her Golden Birthday.  I am hoping that she will be able to come home on her birthday since she doesn't have class on Thursday afternoons or Fridays.  She has her schedule so tight that she has been having difficulty finding time to eat.  She has been working at a nursing home and at the dorm so on Sunday she is working from 6am - 2:30 pm at the nursing home and then she is working from 4pm to 10pm at the dorm which I think is just too much especially since she has early classes. I have to work on my daughter who likes to over do it!!!  Since she has been little I have called her my princess so Paulette came out with the perfect sentiment last week that I used on her birthday card.
Then one of her good friends, Nicole had her dog pass away so I used this wonderful sentiment from TLC, Create which I have had the need to use quite a bit lately. I am using the card for the Saturated Canary "B" Challenge and my card has bows, blue color and button.  My third card is for a co-worker that is having a baby shower next weekend.  She knows the sex of the baby, but she won't tell us so I tried to make the card as neutral as I could.
