Crafting the Perfect Message

We all have those moments when we just don't know how to put our thoughts onto paper. Perhaps we wish to show our gratitude to someone in a thank you note but just can't seem to get the right words in the right order. Or maybe we want to write a little more than "Happy Birthday, Sue!" in a best friend's birthday card. Whatever your personal intention, these templates are easy to use and can be altered to fit any occasion. Some are casual, while others are more personal. You can custom-tailor these messages for any recipient or occasion by adding a personal detail or two. Feel free to use these templates as-is or as a jumping-off point to help you create your own unique message. Happy writing!
