sending thanks

Hey there!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.
My husband and I spent it away from the little man (first time since his birth 17.5 months ago!!!) and went back to where we got married to celebrate our 5th anniversary. 

It was a lot of fun, an although we were only away for 23 hours, we spent much of that time talking about him!!
Oh well, that little creature does sort of rule the roost around here!!

Anyway, today I am sharing a little thank you card that I will be giving to my in-laws to thank them for taking such great care of the kid. 

I used Avery Elle's Many Thanks set.
 I just love this bold font, and how it stands out so well against the watercolour backdrop.

Pop on over to the Avery Elle blog to check out a stunning card by Chunyuan!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
