thank you notes {free download}

I do some of my best thinking while laying in bed. I’m not sure what it is, but it has always been that way. My best friend {and college roommate} used to walk in to our apartment and find me laying on top of my covers in the middle of the day and when she asked what in the world I was doing, my response was always “just thinking”.  I know, I’m strange.

So the other day {while laying in bed} I designed these cards in my mind. And when I actually created them, they turned out just how I had imagined.

thank my god


I am so thankful for YOU {even if we have never met}. I feel so honored to be able to share my projects, artwork, home design, family randomness and my thoughts with you all and to receive such encouragement. So thank you. I would love to share these cards with you – please feel free to download the pdf and send them to those you are thankful for.


There are four cards per sheet and the finished size is 3.5 x 5.

    I just LOVE this, but I keep getting a message that there is an error in the link? Is this fixable because these are so great!!

    These are so elegantly perfect! Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us for FREE!!! I am having trouble cutting them perfectly so the dotted lines don’t show. Do you have any tips? What kind of paper trimmer did you use? I’ve owned a few over the years and can never seem to get a truly perfect line. Is it possible to delete the dotted lines so that if my cut is a wee bit off, it’ll still look sharp?

    Hi, Emily! I love, love, love these adoreable notecards!!! I’ve been looking for a cute, simple scripture notecard – and this one is PERFECT! Would you put them in your printables shop so we can purchase, download, and print them in a variety of colors?

    Funny how life works…I work at a high school. The week of inservice before school started, the church across our parking lot invited all of our faculty (300+) to lunch. It was a wonderful & unexpected treat. My intention for over a month was to write a thank you card which I never got around to doing. Thanks to your lovely download, I was able to print them at work and get it in the mail. Love when things fall into place like that! Thanks!!

  15. Laura September 23, 2011 at 7:09 am #

    Thank you so much for the adorable cards! My church’s women’s Bible study just began studying Philippians, so these came at such a perfect time.

  16. Twyla September 22, 2011 at 8:55 pm #

    Thank you so much for the wonderful Thank You cards! You are so inspiring!

  24. Angela September 22, 2011 at 2:50 pm #

    Thank you! Beautiful!

    BTW, I took a right brain / left brain quiz once (something I Googled for fun). I was in a creative lull at the time and I was afraid I really wasn’t creative afterall! Ha! Anyway, one of the questions was, “Where are you when you have your best ideas?” … and one of the answer options was, “while laying down”. You are not weird, you are just creative!!! :)

  25. karen September 22, 2011 at 1:41 pm #

  30. Stacie September 22, 2011 at 12:13 pm #

    I saw this post in my inbox and said outloud (mind you I am by myself) “Jones you have done it again!”

    How funny is that! I don’t even know and I am calling you Jones!

    Anyhow, this verse is SO special to me. A dear one with my besties from college and then my hubby shared this passage with me when he proposed! Such sweet memories!

    And now I will write them all notes on this great card you created!
    Stacie (or if we are going to call each other by our last names mine is Ciraulo)

    PS. Please continue to take your quiet thinking time and create fun things like this!

  80. paige September 22, 2011 at 4:06 am #

    these are so pretty & my current fave color
    thank you!

  81. Kathleen Grace September 22, 2011 at 4:04 am #

    These are wonderful! Great typography and use of the verse. I can see myself using these. I don’t think it’s strange to have your best thoughts while you are resting at all, it happens to me all the time, which unfortuately makes it hard to get to sleep sometimes! I think when we don’t have the visual input to distract us we can be more creative:>)

  82. melissa September 22, 2011 at 4:04 am #

    these are sooo sooo cute! and that verse makes me think of my BFF that lives several hours away every time i read it!!

  83. Kelly in georgia September 22, 2011 at 4:03 am #

    VERY good thinking here! Thank you for your generosity over and over again. These cards are beautiful!

  84. Katie @ Wildwood Creek September 22, 2011 at 3:43 am #

    I love these cards! This is one of my favorite verses.

  85. Amanda September 22, 2011 at 3:36 am #

    Those are BEAUTIFUL! I can’t wait to find an excuse to use them!
