Last year I donated some cards to my CBS (Community Bible Study) Children's Department to use as Thank You's for ladies that had helped out with the kids. At the start of the year, our Children's Director had not used handmade cards, then when some of the ladies received the handmade cards, everyone was so quick to comment about how they loved them and those that had not received them were quick to point out that "I didn't get a hand-made card!" So...the Children's Director and I continued to make cards last year so no one got "left out."
We got smart this year and decided that all of Leadership could help out...so I prepped the cards and we got together as a group and made the Thank Yous. I hope they all enjoyed making them this year and we can all say we each had a "hand" in the Thank Yous for our members! Never underestimate the power of a handmade card!!!
Anyway...here are the cards I designed and we all made. They all had to be quick and easy...
