A Matched Pair...

At this time of year, there are many people to thank for helping us through the past twelve months. Two people we could not have gotten along without are our son's two babysitters, Ally and Ashlee. They are lovely, beautiful, and talented young women, both of whom are studying music at a prestigious music school here in Manhattan. They are so sweet with our little guy, and they certainly have more energy than I do when it comes to keeping up with him!
To thank them both, I wanted to make a pair of nice cards into which I will place a gift card. They play such a key role in our son's life (and they let my husband and I have a date night every once in a while!) This past week's Moxie Fab World Thank You Card Challenge and today's Studio Challenge were the perfect excuse to make these matched pair of cards to show our gratitude.
