I took a quick trip out At the Fence, to visit for a few minutes and share another Gift Basket idea. Do you know someone who sends a lot of cards out through out the year? Do you send cards out? This book is for when you want to send a special message, not just an average card. Words to the Rescue (The sentiment guide for the tongue tied.) was written by Steve Fadie and contains 1000 thoughtful things to write on the card when you don't have a clue. He gives you little sayings or ideas to help get you started. I know I like to receive a personal message instead of a generic card. He covers everything from anniversary to thinking of you. Here are a couple of samples from the book:
An apology-Life is full of hard times. This is one of them. My hope is we can work it out.
A Graduation Congratulation-Good Going_________. You've climbed so many mountains we can't wait to see what's next.
Encouragement-Remember it takes both rain and sun to make a rainbow.
Thank you-You make me so happy, my cheeks hurt from smiling so much.
I have to say I think this is a really neat book. You can use blank notecards, make your own cards, or just write a quick note on a sticky note. Words to the rescue can be a great assistance, especially when we seem to have lost the gift of personalized notes. Everything is done for us. Take time to show family and friends that you really care.
You can purchase copies of Words to the Rescue at www.WordstotheRescue.com or at www.Amazon.com. ($9.95).

And since we are having a whole month of gift baskets and ideas for gift baskets, how about one that includes Words to the Rescue. We used a gift box for this one. We put in the book, some pens tied with a ribbon, a hi-lighter so they can hi-light their favorites, and some blank note cards.
The winner of this giveaway will receive one copy of Words to the Rescue.
