Birthday Thank You Cards

We had the whole family come home over Memorial Day Weekend- kids and grandkids! SO much fun- and so very much rain! Sixteen people in the house... and only two bathrooms! We were planning to let a group try camping in the backyard... but it was even too wet to set up the tent!

We did celebrate my birthday though... and I just made the thank you notes to send tomorrow for the very thoughtful cards and gifts that were shared.

Here's a look at the inside of the card:

Just love the PTI Happiness In Bloom stamp set. I used masking to create this card in one layer. The card base has an oval diecut with the sentiment stamped on the inside of the card. I partially stamped the flower on the outside and then stamped the same flower on the inside so the petal could be shared.  Colors are Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizazz, and Tangerine Tango. The sentiment and flower center are stamped with Staz-on Black ink. The finishing touch is the green Bakers twine at the top. I used a small hole punch on each side of the front to make an edge for the twine.

I totally missed Father's Day this year and had to make calls to send wishes to the men in the family. Next year...
