Appreciation Note Cards for Better Yourself Book Club

Last spring, I got invited to a Better Yourself Book Club meeting. I hemmed and I hawed, but I went and ultimately enjoyed it. The club focuses on self improvement type books.

When I saw the sentiment from this My Favorite Things stamp set – “The ornaments of life are the friends who fill it”, I knew I would make cards to give away at the next book club.  (And I made extra, to hand out to my friends at the middle school.)

I colored them randomly while watching TV (Project Runway Finale Part 2) or Facebook messaging with Offspring3 early in the morning.

The single card above color scheme was inspired by my FAVORITE Ralph Lauren Polo shirt, purchased in 1991 for hubby.

Offspring1 occasionally digs it out of dad’s collection and wears it. The only photographic evidence is Wacky Tacky day in 2010.
