Designer Craft Connection Blog Hop - Saying Thanks

"Thanks" is a simple word - and it means so much.  But way too often, people forget the power that word holds.  The theme for the Designer Craft Connection blog hop this month is “thank you gifts.”   I encourage you to follow the DCC blog hop button in the right column on my blog and see how each of the designers has interpreted this theme.  Whether it’s simple gifts to say thank you to a hostess, little mementos to say thank you to a friend for being there for you, a hand-made thank you card to let someone know you appreciated their kindness, an email, a social media post, or even just verbally - it’s the thought that counts and everyone needs to take the time to remember to say THANKS in this world more often!

I’ve discovered that if I keep a stash of hand-made thank you cards on hand, I tend to think about actually saying thank you and sending them more often than if I have to stop and make one when the need arises.   I enjoy making something detailed and more involved when time allows, but these simple, quick butterfly thank you’s are cards I whip up in multiples and keep on hand.  The bold colors are eye catching, and most people like butterflies so it’s appropriate for almost anyone. 

Take time to say THANK YOU to someone in your world today - Cindi 


  1. I am with you and planning ahead and making several to have on hand. I think Thank you cards are totally necessary and such a simple way to show someone you care.

  2. Very pretty colors! Love these cards.

  3. Love your post and your cards!
    I agree gratitude!

  4. Thankful and true to your colors, perfect my dear

  5. Such a great idea to make up cards in advance! Very cute!
