|These cards were made with a previous Paper Pumpkin kit - I made up a ton of them as I always need Thank You cards!
So, speaking of thank you's - sometimes, when you have a lot of thank you notes to write, it's hard to sound totally sincere. Remember all those notes for your shower? wedding? It can get to sound a bit like a robot wrote it -
The proper formula for writing thank you cards is:
1. Express gratitude
2. Thank them for the specific gift or service
3. Explain why you appreciated the service or how you are using the gift
4. End with a personal note with sincerety
Still having trouble, there are lots of books on the market that will help you say the right thing - one of my favorties is Write the Right Words by Sandra E. Lamb. She has great ideas for writing cards for all occasions--not just gratitude cards--and I find them to be incredibly helpful in getting my brain working.
So again - today I'm THANKFUL for all of you! See you soon!! ~Maureen
