THANK YOU: Say It With a Card April 27 2018, 0 Comments

 

 

I have many people to thank, and I thank people often. Never underestimate the value of saying thank you. Showing gratitude and appreciation, giving credit when credit is due, and recognizing the kind and thoughtful actions of another, are all great reasons to give thanks. Whether it's in the workplace, within your community, family, or circle of friends, "thank you" goes a long way.

 When we say thank you and show gratitude it makes a person happier and healthier, and increases our sense of connection with others. Receiving recognition increases our sense of self-worth and belonging, and reinforces the value of doing good things. 

For these reasons I've created some thank you cards. They're great for sending to a colleague for a job well done, a family member you recently visited, a neighbour who helped you out, or a friend who was there when you needed them most.

There are six cards to choose from: You Helped Me, Your Kindness, From the Bottom of My Heart, Much Love, I'll Never Forget, and It Was Wonderful. You can get them all here.

As a thank you to you, my reader, and in celebration of International Jazz Day on April 30th, here is Lonnie Smith's version of I Want to Thank You.

Hasta leugo,

Val


A Message To My Readers September 20 2017, 0 Comments

 

 Welcome to my corner of the internet. I've been designing cards for a few years and look forward to sharing regular new creations with you, whether you are someone looking for a card for a special occasion, another card designer, or someone looking to sell my cards in your shop. I hope you'll find something here for you, or someone you love and care about.

Future posts will include updates on card offerings, some behind the scenes peaks at my process and what influences me.  I will share inspiring quotes and thoughtful words of great minds of poets, writers, musicians, philosophers, and artists. But there's more…

I'm going to offer you, my reader, regular tips on writing meaningful messages for celebration, condolence, and appreciation. We all love to buy and give cards, but sometimes we lack the words to say, ' I love you', 'I appreciate you', or 'I am sorry'.  I will help you with that. 

I always welcome reader feedback, so if you have something to share on a topic, a question, or want to suggest a future post or card, feel free to leave suggestions in the comments section or send me an email.

Hasta luego!
