Aunt Opal’s 99th Birthday Card

“Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things…”
Robert Brault

So true.  One of my favorite memories of my dad is he and I having an ice cream sundae at Howard Johnson’s… just the two of us.  A simple little moment in time, yet all these years later, one of my favorite moments.

Aunt Opal’s 99th Birthday Card – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor & Ink on 5″ x 7″ Black Greeting Card

The hubby’s aunt Opal turned 99 last month and we attended her birthday party at The Canadian First Methodist Church on Sunday.   She is such a joy and we love seeing her surrounded by people that she loves.  I had fun making her card.   I am looking forward to doing a special one for her 100th birthday.  🙂

    Happy Birthday Aunt Opal. Beth, I have a request. If I make it to 99 would you make me a wonderful birthday card like this?

      I’m guessing I’m quite a bit older than you. Do you think I’ll still be alive then? I know! I’ll paint it early and put it in my will that it needs to be mailed for your 99th birthday. he he 🙂
