When you check your letterbox, do you open the handwritten envelopes first and savour the personal letters and cards? 

Over Christmas I read an interesting book called "The Art of the Handwritten Note" by Margaret Shepherd.  It claims to be a guide to reclaiming civilized communication, and what I got from the easy-to-read book was how much we value and are thankful for those who take the time to send courteous or caring handwritten words.  Rather than being intimidated by the task, this has encouraged me to do this more by putting my thoughts and emotions into words in note cards.  I think it's something that has fallen away from our society of emails, txts and instant messaging, but is still really important to do and to teach to others.

So with that message playing in the back of my mind, I created note cards for doing just that!  The Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes make cute "packaging" for a handwritten note...

Lots of Lavender Gift Boxed Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes

I kept the Narrow Note Cards simple, letting the gorgeous Lots of Lavender stamp set be the star.  For a bit of wow, I added a nest of Silver Metallic Thread and finished it with a white-embossed sentiment.

The words I chose for my note cards were from one of my Annual Catalogue favourites, the Text Ya Later stamp set...
