Shipper needs this week:

Sandy: Love and miss you cards are the ones I could use the most...make them in fall and wintery colors/themes and they'll fit my boxes perfectly!Thanks!

Fabre: Love You, Miss You, cards for children.  Also a reminder, I can still use cards to fit the A9 and A7 envelopes - email me if you need the sizes!


Kris: I don't really have any "needs" as I have gotten so many cards lately but I guess my biggest lack would be Anniversary and thank you cards.
