I Thank You! - Part 1

I understand from friends and family with children, that this is a time of year when it has become common to thank various people, particularly Teachers. It is with this in mind that I have created this card, however, for me it is ALWAYS the time of year to thank people and I think we do far too little of it, or when we do remember, we send a brief, often multi recipient, email.

What a difference it would make to someone if they were to receive a handmade card. They would know that you had taken the time a trouble to craft this amazing item for them. Even if it is not the most intricate piece of work, they will feel appreciated so much more than a slightly impersonal email or cursory 'Thank You' in passing.

So come on people, get out your stamp sets with any form of 'Thank You' greeting and get stamping. All you need is a little cardstock and a few ink pads and you have all you need to make a real difference to someone's day.

  1. Maybe it's just because I'm wwwwaaaayyyyyy over here in the US and you're wwwwaaaayyyyyy over there in the UK, but the video displays both on the blog and on YT as being "Private." Or maybe it's the updates I just made to my computer. I'll try again later. I always enjoy seeing your processes and your mind at work.

  2. Hi Lucy. So, nothing to do with geography, more to do with me scheduling the video for the wrong day!!! Clearly on this occasion my mind was not working properly! I hope it is worth the wait!!! Lx

    1. Well worth waiting for, Liz. I think I wore this combination of colors back in the late 60s! I'm just happy the error message indicated something simple and didn't require some fixing of either of our computers. And, yes, my pockets aren't very deep either; however, I'm not going to be able to resist This Little Piggy. Looking forward to more fun projects.

    2. Excellent! Glad it was worth the wait. I am still not sure but the Pigs. They are very cute, but there are sets further up my 'need' list, so we will see. Lx

  3. I love this card always have such great original ideas. Thanks. Xm
