DIY A Thank You Card

Nora just celebrated her first birthday party, which means I got to make some home made thank you cards!.. like I need a reason to craft.  I hope in the years to come Nora and I can make the cards together and have it be a little mommy and daughter tradition.   I can't believe Nora's first year of life just went by so fast and all of my mommy friends say that time only gets faster.  She had so many firsts this year and now there will be even more firsts to come and I know Nora is ready but sometimes I wonder if I am ready? Will I ever be ready? There has been lots of firsts for me too being a new mommy and learning what it's like to be a real grown up.

This card was extremely easy to make- all I did was stencil a triangle on a card stock and print out a black and white photo and cut out the image. Then I cut out a little thought bubble with the words thank you.  So simple and easy but really fun to make.

Happy Tuesday :)

Personalized is the way to go. When she gets a bit older, you should have her design/color/scribble on the thank you cards! Those were always my favorite to get from my nieces. xo

Happy belated birthday to your little one! Very cute idea. Always love to get personalized and handcrafted cards. I bet everyone was smiling from ear to ear when they opened their mailboxes.
