Thank You Notes

I've mentioned before how important I consider thank-you notes to be.  I've trained Trevor that when he opens gifts in person, he thanks the person verbally and then usually follows up with an email, phone call or thank-you note.  When he opens a gift that comes in the mail, he always sends a thank-you note.  

For this season's thank-yous, he started by stamping both a sentiment and a background.  He doesn't do a lot of stamping, so this was something different and fun for him.   

 
He used a pen to color in the holly berries in the background... 

 
... then he added Stickles to give it some sparkle.  His fine motor skills have become good enough that he was able to fill in the berries nearly perfectly.    

 
Here's one of his finished cards.



I love the way they turned out.  So festive!

  2. Oh wow! What a nice looking Thank You note!
    Definitely better than the store bought kind!

    I don't "do" thank you notes, never have.
    I guess it just depends on how you're raised if that is something you do and carry on through generations.

    Happy New Year to you and your family!
