I echo so many sentiments here. I enjoy making cards of all types, so it is a pleasure for me to share this love with people who also like to send/receive cards. I try a set of varying themes that can be used with both genders. When I worked at a public school, I'd dash off a brief note in a simple card to co-workers or students who did something thoughtful or were facing some difficulty. My former advisees who ranked in the top 5 at graduation this year received a handwritten message at their homes because I've since retired. Can you believe I received a handwritten note of appreciation for congratulating them? A relative always has a stash of my CAS cards in her office desk drawer, to be used when the unexpected occurs and is shared at work. She likes to write her own message inside, so I leave that blank. A card-making friend is active at her church, and found that the religious sisters appreciated her note cards. Her gifts are a standard pack of 12 embossed cards/envelopes; for the holidays, she includes a book of stamps. I've never given tags, but have used them on the fronts of cards! We love homemade gifts. Too often, a person's time and talents are undervalued. A set of handmade cards honors both the giver and receiver, I think. Diane
