Very Versailles Sympathy Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Sometimes we need a sympathy card, I know I have had to send out a some in the last couple of months, but it gives me a sense that at least I have done ‘something’ to acknowledge the loss a family is feeling.

Delicate Gatefold Congratulations Card
