So Very Grateful

Your friends will be so very Grateful when you send them a card with your appreciation of them.  It’s always nice to get mail delivered at any time.  Additionally, it’s nicer to receive something as special as a hand made card.  It holds more meaning when they know you took the time to create it just for them.
