    Hi Jill, love your card, are there any dimensions for it please? I’ve the same saying, but with a feather or robin, being the last of our family (parents and sister) every time I see one or the other, I give a thumbs up and say hello (very discreetly of course). Cheers and Thankyou, Marilyn in the UK.

    Hi Jill, love your card, even ‘tho it’s for a sad occasion, are there any dimensions for it please? Now living in the UK but born and bred in Australia I hadn’t heard of the Cardinal bird and it’s meanings. I have heard the same about robin redbreast birds and feathers that mean the same thing. As the last survivor in our family on Dad’s side (about seven relations including Dad and my sister Lee have all succumbed to the BIG C. I had it three years ago, but touch wood, I’m okay at the moment, I guess it’s all those relations looking out for me, so every time I see a robin or a feather I say hello and give them a thumbs up, all very discreetly of course, Well Jill, Cheers and Thankyou, Marilyn in the UK.

      So sorry for your losses Marilyn. This is a standard A2 card. The inside embossed panel measures 3.25 x 4.25 inches. Good luck!
