You Bake Us happy

My kid sister has the most wonderful mother-in-law, she is just the nicest person  and whenever we have  a family get-to-gether  for our side of the family she bakes us the most delicious cookies and squares . This year she again sent out a whole lot of goodies for our Family Reunion on my Mother's side.  She always amazes me in her kindness!  This year my sisters and I decided  I should  make her a thank-you card  (it's always nicer when it is homemade) and Doodle Pantry's 'Baking Ants' seemed appropriate . I crossed out the 'me' in the sentiment and wrote in 'us' and inside is the thank  you note from the 'Reunion'. Hope she likes it!

Doodle Pantry has new release coming up on September 1st. with lots of new fun and lovely images! There is a new challenge  DPDC#27 starting at  noon Eastern time that same day. So lots of activities to look forward to, do go over to the  Doodle Pantry Blog for all the details on the 1st!
