Sorry another Sympathy card today, I have made two of this design..For my box till needed..
A lovely comment was left on my last card, saying she thinks this is when a handmade card should be done!! I totally agree..When I lost my parents the comfort I gained from friends who sent me a handmade card is hard to explain, just knew they were with their for me..
But I also understand those that cannot make a card, as they find it too upsetting.
The cards are for a very special family we have known for over 45 years.. (hope you understand)
