Wonderful Words

A single word can say so much. These are some of our favourite words at ThanksGreeting and it was so fun to play with who came up for me when I thought of the word. Think of someone, pick a word and then share your gratitude by adding your own unique message inside. Send a creative word card to someone who moves you beyond words!

Calligraphy Quotes

There is just something about quotes and calligraphy, isn’t there? I hope that you enjoy the creative collaboration with my dear friend Debra Quartermain. Debra always knows just the right thing to say and I so enjoyed doing the lettering for her Heart Felt messages. Use them to create your own ThanksGreeting and I hope they help you to brighten someone’s day – Marie
