Have you ever thought about a long distance friend but didn't have the time to sit down to an hour long phone call? In just fifteen minutes you can create a simple polka dot greeting card, write an "I am thinking of you" note, address it, and drop it in the mail. Follow this card tutorial by Alyice Edrich of The Dabbling Mum.
