I used my MDS program to print out the tags for the Thank You notes and for the announcements. I loved that I could do it in the colors to match the cards! I know that program can do a lot more than I've done with it. I'm anxious to play with it some more.

And the matching Thank You notes:

The ingredients are the same except for the green DSP in place of the blue.
I saw a birthday card done like this last year, made by demonstrator Lisa Young on her blog. I had saved it for a pattern and just couldn't resist using it for the cards. My friend, Susan would say I'm crazy (and maybe I am just a little bit!). The inside was done with a picture of Faith holding Michael and all the information about Michael's birth. It was quite a process getting a 3 week old and a 2 year old to cooperate for pictures!  I also stamped one of the turtles from the Fox and Friends set inside. SOOO CUTE!!!! Now just to help Katie get them all addressed and mailed...I really do think these will need extra postage, so they don't come postage due!! Have fun stampin'!
