Summer Afternoon

For a while it seemed like too many people from my generation had forgotten the manners their parents had taught them and didn't know how to send thank you notes anymore. Thankfully, that seems to have changed. For the past couple of years, when I've given wedding, shower, baby, graduation gifts, I've gotten some very nice thank you notes. It seems that the "younger" generation has picked up a skill that many of us had forgotten. Thank you.

Here's a thank you card for a kind lady who was nice enough to bring dinner for my husband & I while I was sick. If was a nice change from the fast food that we'd been eating!

I don't always do much more than stamp a greeting on the inside but I did just a simple bit to this one.

Trust God stamp set (#126702) with pieces of Marina Mist cardstock left from when I punched the scallops. I've still got plenty of room to write a personal message.
