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.
