Greeting Card

Someone sends you a birthday gift, an inspirational card when you are down, flowers when you are ill; do you follow what some may now call an old-fashioned custom and send a note, an email, or make a phone call to acknowledge their thoughtfulness?

Yes, but usually only if I didn't get a chance to thank someone for a gift in person. If I thanked them on the day I might just leave it at that.
I have never sent a thank-you card but I do think they are a thoughtful thing to do. I wish I was one of those people who send them, but it always seems cost and time prohibitive. I had intended on making personalized ones to send to all of my wedding guests. I wanted to send each individual a nice photo and card from the day, but I just never got around to it. I regret it to this day. Now when someone does something nice for me, I usually thank and tag them in a Facebook status. Probably not nearly as nice a gesture though.
Most definitely, when given the opportunity. Way better than thank you e-mails. Hand made thank you cards come from the heart.
Thank you notes are magnificent and make people feel appreciated! The more the better in my opinion!
I think it's just out of fashioned these days...(sadly) even birthday cards, christmas cards, get well cards....people are spending less time sending them out but rather resort to sms messages.
I think it is an old fashion idea to write the note....having said that I still do it, for some things.

I always phone or send a email, anything less than a phone call or email and you just don't have 'any' manners!
Or as my son used to say, "You need good nannas."

I don't send personally written thank you notes, however, I do send email or text messages.
I do but it often makes people uncomfortable (go figure). I sent out party invitations (for adults) this year and a few people felt they needed to send a written RSVP even though I'd said to rsvp to my mobile. Apparently it seemed very formal to people...
Yes, always, if required. That's how my parents' raised me!

AND I write it in Fountain Pen, with Blue Quink Ink, on beautiful stationery!

Howzat for being 'old fashioned'!

For our 'Wedding Thank You's', they were printed on same paper as the original 'Invites', so there was a 'connection'. The paper was pure white, & had a 'bubble' pattern. It was unique, & I loved it. It was perfect for us, so I'd made the right 'decision', the first of many!

And I'll bet you have beautiful Grade Two cursive writing.

Oh! grann, thank you! But ONE of the reasons' I write with a F/P, is to s l o w me down in my writing, so it IS legible!
Spent may years', at the beginning of my career, having to 'print' quickly, so my 'cursive' writing looked like a fight between a chook & a spider!
So I discovered how to. w r I t e. m o r e. s l o w l y. & it does work, for me, anyhow! Cheers!
