With Sympathy Mini Expression

Hello crafters!  One of the most difficult cards to make is the Sympathy card, I think everyone will agree.  This post features the With Sympathy Mini Expression and hopefully it will help with that task.  It has been tastefully done in a readable font with some lovely swirls.  You can easily cut the words apart to use them in a different orientation on your card if need be too.  Leave your comment on this post to be entered into the drawing to win this die.  The final post of the day will be here at 6pm tonight.  It would be lovely to see you back here again!  All for now, Sue x
