Thank you cards

For my day job, I provide case management services to mentally ill adults living in Adult Homes. There are around 120 clients served by my program, ranging in age from 18 to 95+. The holidays are always especially hard on them as many of them have no family, or have lost contact with their family over the years.

This year, three wonderful ladies in my community stepped up and crocheted an assortment of hats, scarfs, and lap blankets for the clients so that each and every one of them will have a gift to open this holiday season. To show them that we appreciate their efforts, I made a thank you card for each of them that all of my team mates will sign. (The fourth card is for a woman who generously donated a fridge to our office, which is also MUCH appreciated albeit in a different way.)

I've been admiring all the simple, but elegant cards I keep seeing that are made with Cuttlebug embossing folders, so I decided to try my hand at a few for the thank you cards.

Since we are so close to the holidays, I decided to use red and white for my color scheme. If you changed out the verse, I think these would make pretty Christmas cards too.
