Comment: Guess what just arrived to my mailbox! I love your beautiful ATC, and how amazing that you have a rubber stamp with ‘post card’ and a beautiful flourish. Thank you so much for the beautiful ATC and for the amazing Netherlands postage stamps!

Comment: Hello, I just love this mail art! You've taken the time to sew the envelope and embellish it with a variety of lovely elements in wonderfully subtle, cheerful colors. The butterfly stamps are beautiful, too. Thanks for the extras, including the fun cut outs and the tea. I've always wanted to try elderflower tea. Many thanks for a Great Mail Day!
Comment: Love the cat PC, thank you!
Comment: I hope everything goes well in class and no one gets sick. Being a mail carrier is essential but thankfully I'm not around people all day. Thank you for teaching the young, such a commendable profession.
Comment: Thank you, lots of fun stamps.
Comment: Lovely work on the ATC. I had to chuckle when I read your note and saw the stamps. I'd already carefully removed the postage stamps you used to mail to me. Delighted to have more from Nederland. Thank you. Stay safe and healthy during all of this madness.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely postcard! My husband got excited when he saw that it was from Disneyland Paris!
Comment: Wow, what a great swap package! I love the beautiful card, the super decorated envelope, and the extra stamps! Thank you so much!
Comment: Dankjewel voor de envelop en de vulling, Sandra! (en excuses dat ik 'm pas zo laat 'rate' ...) Gekke tijden, hè? Daarom extra blij met post!

Comment: Dank je wel voor je kaartje!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely selection of postcards and extras, Sandra. Your handmade & hand stitched envie is delightful too! Love the pensive Dalmatian & the foolish dancers in the children's book illustration. The Postcard Store images are beautiful, but I wish they would identify them so I know what I'm looking at! Happy New Year.

Comment: Thank you Sandra. I can almost smell the scent of the flowers on your lovely postcard. I too am longing for Spring, though I fear my longing for the change of seasons isn't complete, as our Winter has not been as cold and snowy as before.
