An octopus haiku!
Accompanied by a lovely spring zengtangle , just what we need!
A hand painted Popsicle bookmark!
I must admit I have seen them around on the blogs and secretly hoped for one ;)
And the Octopus card.
All so perfect!
Thanks Teri!
Debra (from Beam me up Scotty) sent me this PC manipulated professionally printed card for the Global Mail Art Greeting project.
Thanks Debra!
I bought this original work of art from Lolo!
It stands on my side table in the hall. Every time I walk by I have to think of her.
I just love that raven and the Global feel of these stamps from all over the world!
It is like the raven is crossing the ocean and that friendship knows no boundaries.......
Two colds in 2 months........ Dear Lolo sent me these mandala tissues for my next cold, which I have planned to have next winter btw........
The 2 boxes are lovely in my bedroom!
Lovely hummingbird cards were in the package too.
Lolo's mail is always like a little party!
Thanks Lolo!
If you are sorry you missed the raven you can always buy the raven cards available in her Etsy shop. For me they came together with the original I bought.
here some other goodies!
The blue duck for the ABC ATC challenge.
A lovely peacock bookmark! A bunny and Moo cards!
Thanks dear , you always spoil me rotten!
This lovely treasure came from BT!
My M for Musical Mermaid, together with a bunch of extra goodies!
And a beautiful handmade card!
Thanks BT!!!!
Thankful for all my creative Blogfriends and for the wonderful exchange of art we have!
But most of all for their friendship and support!
I am thankful for Spring, which has finally arrived!
