Imagine we took the time to address the envelope and put the cards we make in the mail.  Your friend is down.  She goes to the mailbox and sees a card.  Hmm...what's this?

She opens the envelope and finds:

Someone understands!  Someone knows that my life bites at the moment.  Someone sent me a card with glitter!

She feels better!  She knows she's not alone.

Aren't you glad you mailed the card?  This happened to me recently.  I sat down and mailed 5 cards. I got the best email from one recipient.  Made my day brighter!  I've got to do this more often.

Of course, it's not the card itself, it really was the thought that counted.

By the way, used Concord & 9th's Shine Brighter stamp set on Papertrey Ink pre colored paper.

And happy you should be! What an awesome, thoughtful response from the recipient. And what better way to make you feel good! The card is wonderful.

Yep, sure would brighten up my day! LOVE this. Think I need this stamp. :)

It always brightens my day to get a card or letter - or both! - in the mail. That stamp is perfect for sending a card just any old time. It looks like you've been watching Julie Ebersole's videos - I love the stickles around the edge of the card front.

Thank you! Yes I watch all of Julie's videos and got the idea to add the Stickles from her. She is amazing!!

Joan, you are absolutely right! What IF we made a point to do this more often? As you said, its not so much the card as the thoughtfulness behind it...THE MAILING of the card. DO IT rather than THINKING of doing it!
Thanks for the reminder and today I am going to DO IT!

Yes, I agree. Make 'em and mail 'em. This one would surely have the desired effect.
