    @Tangled:  I think you are ok. But to be sure, I would call her to make sure she got it and verbally enthusiatically thank her for the giftCool

    I can see where you’d get nervous about the wording but I doubt anyone would be offended – weddings cost more than $40, so it’s a true statement. You also called it a “generous gift” clearing any confusion that you thought it wasn’t enough or whatever. 🙂

    @Tangled:  I think the fact that (1) you sent out Thank You’s at all and in a timely manner is a step above most and (2) anyone who truly gets their panties in a wad over something that silly is just a hard person to please in general. I would not be offended if I received that type of thank you card.

    I really think you’re fine here! As one PP suggested, perhaps send a message or call and thank her again for the gift. Personally I love receiving mail so you probably could’ve insulted me and I would’ve still enjoyed it, haha.

    @Miss Otter:  Hahaha that made me laugh! I love mail too.

    I probably wouldn’t notice the wording too much, especially if the rest of the thank-you is sweet and appreciative. 🙂

    I did the SAME thing and also worried about it later. I agree the everyone else now. I don’t think it’s a big deal! It’s really unlikely that she will even notice it let alone be offended.
