I think most, if not all, kids wish they could receive presents, and skip the Thank You's. But, I'm one of those "mean Mom's" who make their kids hand write one for each gift. Ah yes, I sure do remember complaining about that when I was a kid.
L. just turned 10, so he's right on the line of not wanting anything too "cute." Fortunately he loves dogs! As a matter of fact, he's getting a puppy from my sister and bro-in-law this summer.
The thank you note is simple, but perfect for a 10 year old, dog loving boy. I watercolored the image on confetti white paper. The caramel background is textured. Sentiment is "you made my day!"
Now, I just have to get him to sit down long enough to write the notes :)
