I am getting ready to start addressing my Christmas Cards soon!

I spent the Morning addressing ALL my Thanksgiving Cards and got them in the mail!

(I am typing this on Monday the 19th!)

Since I still had Christmas DSP out on the Craft Table, I thought this Sketch and Theme

would be perfect to get those Thank You Cards ready for AFTER Christmas!

This is a good thing to do and to teach your Children, Grandchildren, Nieces, Nephews,

and so on…This is a practice all kids need to learn. It isn’t the same as texting…

Written in their hand writing, tells the giver that they/you cared enough

to take the time and write that Thank you!

What a great Life Lesson!

Until we meet again, on the next Post…Blessings and Thanks to you ALL!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello Everyone!
