I don't know about you, but nothing delights me more than receiving a thank you note or a post card in the mail rather than irritating bills and worthless coupons. When it comes to this enjoyable mail I get a thrill out of giving as much as receiving. It is one of my personal rules to to always send thank you notes, but unfortunately the cutest stationary tends to be a little on the pricey side. My solution to this problem is to simply make my own. For the above cards I made my monogram on Microsoft Word and got the background pictures from magazine ads and weheartit.com. I hand cut and pasted the template for the cards and Xeroxed them at Kinko's. It was pretty easy, but I do need to work on my cutting skills. I use a Martha Stewart paper cutter, but the lines of the initials and the edges of the card don't line up exactly and that kind of bothers me. Oh well, I will keep on creating and work on my precision.
