Growing up I was taught to always write a thank you note.
As a child the task seemed sometimes arduous–especially if I was thanking somebody for an ugly sweater. But I see now how the simple act of writing a thank you note cultivated a heart of gratitude in me. Every time I received a gift of any kind I was taught to stop and write out a reason I was appreciative and send it to the giver. It wasn’t long before I began to turn the practice of thank you card writing into an art form. I looked for just the write stationary, got creative in my reasons for liking the gift, and attempted to let people know they were even more meaningful to me as the gifts they sent.
So when DaySpring offered to send free cards to anyone willing to participate in their January (in)spired deals I knew I was in. The cards came just in time for me to send off some thank you notes and it turns out people loved the cards just as much as I did. My friends and family all commented on the cuteness and quality. I happen to be the owner of a sweet Beagle puppy named Lucy, so sending a DaySpring card with Snoopy on the front was a perfect fit for me.
The Peanuts line also includes friendship & encouragement cards I haven’t had the opportunity to use yet. But I look forward to sending them too.
But that isn’t even the best part. DaySpring has also given me a $20 coupon code to give to one lucky blog reader. To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment below telling me about a thank you card you sent or received that was meaningful to you.
I will close the comments on Friday, February, 3, 2012 at 12 pm PST. And I will use random.org to help me select a winner so make sure you leave a working email address so I know how to contact you if you win. The coupon code is good until December 31, 2012 and can be used on anything in the DaySpring store.
