A Punny Waterfall card

I made this Happy Bird-day waterfall card for a special little girl who I have known since she and Ken were just months old. Her mother, Anna, and I met at a local hospital group for new moms back in 2003 and became good friends. She moved to Reno and we have managed to stay in touch over the years. Although we see each other several times throughout the year, I wish we lived closer, seeing how she has two girls who are just weeks younger than each of my two boys and we all get along so well. Anyways, this one is for Emily M.
