Thank you

Baby Boy & I are leaving for a week and a half on Tuesday, and will be staying at my sister's place while we're away. I wanted to make her a special card to say thanks for having us, and for everything she's picked up for us for our trip (diapers, formula, a bouncy chair, etc). Her favorite color has always been green, so when I saw this card on SCS I thought it'd be perfect for her.  I changed it up a bit, but still like my end result.

While we're on vacay, we're borrowing some key pieces of baby gear - stroller, car seat & play pen - from a friend. This saves me soooo much of a headache, least I can do is a card for her, right? (I'll probably take her out for dinner too). So more surfing SCS, and I found this. I switched it up a bit, as I have issues using that embossed bit vertically. it just seems backwards to me.

Last is a card I made for my neighbor who watched baby for me for a few hours last week (first time with a non-family member! and we all survived!! :P). These neighbors are great, and to thank them for everything, I got them a nice springy bouquet, and made them this card. I had bought the retired SU set with french phrases from Leslie a while back, and finally inked it up. You can't see the stamp very well, but trust me, it says Merci :P I wrote "pour tout" underneath it, because really, it was a true "thanks for everything" kinda card.
