May Thank You Notes

Happy Sunday! Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms out there! 

Today is going to be another beautiful day in our corner of the woods. It's in the 70's outside, doors and windows are open, sun is shining, birds are chirping... love it!

I started working on my May Thank You notes this morning. I love 2-Step stamping. (That just means the image is in more than one stamp section. For example on this card, I stamped the stem, flower, and leaves all from different stamps, but put them together as one image.)

Check this out!
