The Other Sympathy Card

Now that we’ve done a second sympathy card, I think that I’m out of my creative freeze. Does that ever happen to you?

Sneaking a Peek at Thursday

Everyone will be partying on Monday night. Snacks. TV or party. Maybe dinner out. Then on Tuesday, there will be food. Hopefully, Ann will take me on a little walk.
