If you have ever ordered anything from me you know that I love a thank you note - I love shopping for the stationary, the feel of creamy paper, a good pen, choosing the right card for the right person and I have some favorite spots to find them.
I first went to Gwen Frostic's stationary store in Benzonia, Michigan when I was in elementary school. She has a wall of cards that you pull from to choose what you like and the butterflies, flowers and ladybugs drew me in from the jump. I later fell for the wrapping paper, calendars and even used the postcards for my wedding save-the-dates. They have a beautiful deckled edge on both the card and the envelope and there are over 100 designs to choose from - love!
|Yellow Mums - one of my faves! - with tiny cards too - so fun!|
Elum has a wonderful cardstock which they letterpress with beautiful designs and colors - I love the way my pen feels on the paper and they make writing thank you notes fun.

If you like to personalize your cards to the utmost level you can go to Shutterfly and upload any pics you like to make holiday cards, thank you cards, you name it. They have tons of designs to choose from and you can even personalize the text on the inside.
|Who doesn't love a card with a bird on it? I'm a sucker for birds.|
I highly enjoy trolling the "paper aisle" in HomeGoods or Marshall's to pick up some George Stanley or Mara Mi Notecards - they generally have something cute for a great price.
|I think they remind me of the cards in my baby book.|
My other favorite place to go for stationary is Etsy - I love "glitter" cards from the 1960's/70's. It's pretty easy to find Christmas or Easter cards but harder to find "everyday" cards. They may not be your vibe but I am a big fan.
Worst case make a Target run - they've got awesome stationary there - and write a friend a note - they can be as fun to send as they are to receive!
