It is easier to send a card to say "Thanks" than to write a long letter of appreciation.
There are lots of greeting cards in the shop that will help you convey your gratefulness but I always prefer to make my own if I have some available time.
Somehow, recipients find these handmade cards more endearing and precious and will treasure and keep them.
I received many of these homemade cards and it always give me a beautiful warm feeling every time I receive one because I consider the time and effort my friends put into making these cards.
Here's one simple card I made using Making Memories foam stamps - Jersey Alphabet Stamp Set.
If you do not have the right shade of pink color cardstock, just sponge the same pink dye ink onto the edges of a white cardstock.
Simply rub the ink-pad directly onto the white card. You can do the same for the light blue card but you will have to cover the whole card.
Spend at least one day a week or, if not possible, a month thinking of those who have contribute to make our lives easier and better. Write a note to let each person know what you are are thinking and tell them how grateful you are for their care, thoughtfulness and contributions.
Whether it's a simple note card, a double-fold card or a more complex three-panel card, what's important is that you pen down your thought and feeling and let the other person know.
I believe if we do this, the world will be a better place and people around us will surely be happier especially if more people practice this.
So let's at least attempt to do this once a month even if you could only send out one card, it should be better than not doing so at all.
I promise you that you yourself will be a more joyful person too.
Is there anyone you would like to make and send a card to now?
