Christmas Thank You Cards

Well, Christmas 2014 is gone already. Now, to send or not to send a thank you note to those who gave you gifts? ABSOLUTELY YES. Someone took time to go to a store, shop online, and/or make you something. So a thank you card is not only appropriate, but shows kindness and appreciation. And, if you have children, teach them the importance of writing a thank you note. Here is what my 9-year-old and I did.
I made this one - Card 1
We made 5 of this one together. The lights are his finger prints, and he will write the note to thank those who gave him gifts - Card 2

... and I made this one too. Card 3

You can make your cards simple or more elaborated, but what matters is that you are taking time to make something nice to thank those who blessed you.
