Showing Gratitude


I hope you all had a nice Christmas. I kind of slipped off the blogging bandwagon there for a minute (or a whole week). I blame it fully on my last-minute Christmas hysteria. Now that I'm nearly done clearing away all the debris and finding room for all the new stuff, it's time to think about writing thank you notes. I'll admit, that even though I design cards, I don't send nearly enough thank yous. I made these little postcards for Hudson to send out. I love the idea of letting him help, and I think it's a great teaching opportunity. {Thanks, Jen, for inspiring this project}.

Hudson can barely write his name, so I made sure there was plenty of space for him to sign the bottom. I also created a free download for you to use. The cards come in four colors...simply print them on letter sized card stock, cut in quarters, and help your kids fill in the blanks. Then stick them in the mail and Ta-Da! Your little ones just learned a great lesson about showing gratitude.

ohhhh sooo GRAND!!!!!! Utterly lovely...

My only problem---what if I can't remember ANYTHING about CHRISTMAS? (ie who gave and got what?) YIKES!!!!! Bad mama!

This year I'll use my typical "thank you so very much for the gift" photo card and next year I'll be FANTASTICALLY on top things and use YOURS!

xoxoxox!

OK, Jeanine. Thanks for the heads-up. I think I fixed it. Let me know if it's still not working and I'll email you the PDF until I can get it fixed.
Happy New Year!

Thanks so much! These are so cute. I so so wish I had found them last night - I ran out of my son's personalized cards & had to make do for the rest of his b-day thank you's. These would have been PERFECT - but now I'll have them for next time. THANK YOU!
