Recently I needed a batch of thank you cards, and didn't have any suitable ones on hand. I had had some surgery that required me to be house-bound for a couple of weeks. I couldn't drive the first week, and wasn't supposed to go to work for two more weeks, but I compromised by working from home for one of those two weeks. Sooo many folks offered their help, and came over to visit me and help me with shopping and little things around the house. They also helped me to entertain my new Golden Doodle puppies, Tia and Jasper!!
Of course I had to write thank you cards. As I mentioned, I did NOT have a stash on hand that were suitable for the purpose. BUT I did have a package of the Simply Sent kit from Stampin' Up! called "Sweet Hello". These were perfect for my needs.
The kit is shown below:
It includes 8 cards preprinted with the pretty flourish, and the blue border. Separately you have little fabric flowers that have adhesive backs, and of course 8 envelopes are included. You can add any sentiment that you like. I chose "Kind Thanks" from the "Thank You Kindly" set, and stamped it in Old Olive to match the green flourish design.
So it made my task of writing and sending multiple "Thank You" cards managable and enjoyable, and allowed me to say (at least a little bit) that I made them, too!
If you like this design, you need to hurry to place your order, because this particular kit will retire with the 2011 catalog on June 30, 2011. (But never fear: there are 3 beautiful new Simply Sent designs coming in next year's catalog.)
