Thank-You Note Etiquette

The secret to success in life is The Thank-You Note!
To be Socially Savvy you must know that writing thank-you notes are a must and do remember: The sooner you send ... the sweeter it is for the receiver!
There are many tips to remember but here's a few that will keep you going in the right direction:
  • Keep stationery cards and stamps at your fingertips.
  • Write only on the face or front of the card - never the back.
  • First sentence should start with Thank-you.
  • Date goes at bottom left. (yes, it does)
  • Your return address goes on back flap of envelope.
  • Use black or blue ink for more formality, and make sure your stationery reflects your image
  • Remember correct forms of address: Ms. Joy Weaver, Mrs. James Weaver-(never Mrs. Joy Weaver) and Miss Joy Weaver (if I'm under 18 yrs old)
Here's a example:
Dear Nicki,
Thank you for the perfect birthday gift! You know exactly what to give to a girl who is addicted to handbags. I adore my new bag and will carry it smiling as I remember the fun surprise birthday lunch.
Thrilled and very happy! 
All my best,
