    Since my husband and I will be moving to NYC in a couple months, I would really like to send a moving annoucement to our friends & family. My favorites are the “carrying boxes we’ve moved” card and all the photo moving cards. I also LOVE the “Bridge to NY Season’s Greeting” card!! That would be so appropriate around Christmas time!!!

    I love the 2010 calendar w/the photo–I could add my grandsons’ pix! Unfortunately, I’m at the age where a supply of sympathy cards is always great to have. Bummer, I know; don’t mean to bring down the excitement. These options are beautiful, though!
