Hand Made Thank You Card
Hand Made Thank You Card

My very good friend Dorthy is back with a perfect Thank You card. This card is easily made, as it is  really quick to put together, and you probably have most of the supplies on hand already.

I hope you will make this very creative and ideal card for someone special and a few extra to have on hand.  A handmade card speaks volumes to express gratitude and appreciation.

Thank You Dorthy for sharing this excellent idea with us at A Mother’s Shadow.
