    Nice! Not to many people send thank you cards anymore. I always appreciate a nice handmade, hand written note. Since the internet, email, texting scene.... the younger crowd just doesnt get the personal touch to a card.

  • mazedasastoat

    mazedasastoat said 6 years ago

    As a child, I was always sat down the day before going back to school to write my thank you letters & the habit's never gone away. There's something about the tangible, physical presence of a hand written note that just can't be reproduced in a text or email.
