You're So Tweet...

The aftermath of the rugrat's birthday included lots and lots of people to thank. I don't think another child on the planet got as many gifts as this little guy did! So, I've been busy making cards to show how much we appreciate the thoughtfulness of the many friends and family that had a hand in making his third birthday so special.
This thank you card was made for my sweet boy's great-grandparents. They've only seen him a handful of times as we live so far away, but they always remember his special days. I used the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge sketch from last Friday as my jumping off point and paired it with one of my fave sets, Tweet Hearts. I'll be tucking in a few fun photos from the party so that great-grandmom and dad can see how much our little man enjoyed himself.
