Comment: Yowza Batman! Loved your envelope!! Loved the way you labeled each pocket in such a unique way! Lots of favorites tucked in each one but my very favorite is the vocabulary card. What language is it? Spanish perhaps? I include these from my own boxes in German and another in English, but you're the first person ever to send me one. Woo Hoo!! And since you're now collecting vintage postage, I'd love to send you some, so watch your mail for a letter of goodies. Thank you ever so much! I'm simply thrilled with everything!!
Response: I am so happy you liked everything:) This rating made my day. I am sorry but I don't know about the vocabulary card. I just found it in my collection and thought based on your profile you might like it. Thank you for the kind comments, the rating and the heart:)

Response: So glad you got it and that you liked everything. Thank you for the rating and the heart:)
Comment: Loved your pocket letter! You sent me the floss like I sent in mine. The only caution is the chocolate was totally melted...it was 90 degrees yesterday...but it was sealed so I put in the fridge. Thanks again!
