It was beautifully written in red calligraphy and was made to look as though it were on aged paper. I had no memory of receiving it when I was little, but it made me SO happy to see it now as an adult.

Problem is I don’t know calligraphy and there’s no way I’m going to successfully dye paper to look like it’s old (trust me on that one.). So I hopped onto the computer one night and made up some letterhead and a thank you note from the big man in red. (Hey – when you’re important, you definitely have custom stationery.) You can download it later in this post!
