Maria what a beautiful card! I absolutely adore that sentiment. I am heading over to Doodle Pantry to check it out. I seem to be making so many sympathy cards lately unfortunately and never realized I only had one stamp for it. I know, odd comment to say I like that stamp but I do! It's just what I need.
