Who Should You Thank?

Welcome to Thank You Thursday week! We're leading up to a day of thanks this Thursday, so visit our blog every day until then for fun cards and giveaways!


Today we are talking about WHO should get a thank you card, and of course sharing thank you cards to get you motivated to make some of your own. Doodelbug Designs has sponsored this week of thank you by providing cards from their Create-a-Card line, to some of our designers and by providing a daily giveaway of card goodies worth $40. Also Stampin' Up! is giving away a sentiment stamp each day. Thanks to both of them!!


On with the projects

Thank you for brightening My Day by Robyn Schaub
I created this card for the receptionist at my office building who always greets me with a smile and a hello, no matter how many times I walk in and out during the day. She has such a wonderful personality, and I don't think she gets enough recognition for being such a positive first point-of-contact for our company. When I saw the rainbow of colors in the Doodlebug papers, I immediately thought of rays of sunshine, and I knew it would be perfect for this card, which uses a pre-made trifold base from Doodlebug's Create-a-Card line.


Thanks to those special people by Ashley Harris
This card was made for my daughter’s primary teacher at our church. She goes above and beyond the call of duty when teaching my daughter. She is such a great lady and loves butterflies! Baker’s twine has so many fun uses. It helps bring a card together for sure!


Remember your friends by Melissa
This card was a snap to put together, but still have that lovely handmade look. The inside of the reads "... for being my friend." A simple sentiment for a simple card. My best friend loved getting it as much as I loved making it for her. Sometimes just a simple Thank You is best.


Host of major event by Elizabeth Dillow
Each year my husband and I attend a benefit auction on base where we live; all the money raised from auctioning off themed baskets goes to a scholarship fund that benefits local Air Force family members. It's a huge undertaking to plan, organize, and pull it off and this year the woman in charge is brand-new to the event! I thought it would be nice to slip her a thank you card to acknowledge all the hard work she's put in to make the auction a success.

Tip: Cut your first little flag from the sturdy glitter card stock and use it as a template for all the other flags. It's easy to stretch your supplies when you only use a little bit at a time (but a little bit of patterned/glitter paper can still make a big impact!)
