Christmas Teddy Bear

This is an earlier made Christmas card (actually the hat was missing, so I waulked and added it now) which I sent out now this year.
The teddy bear is wishing Merry Christmas!

We in Finland get new Christmas stamps for each Christmas (it would be nice to know how it is in other countries!).

These Christmas stamps are designed by Minna Immonen
I have always liked her postcard designs, and I like these stamps as well.

Snail Mail from Ilona

This beautiful letter came today from Ilona
Thank you Ilona, I got very happy to receive this!!!

Ilona had used the paper and envelope from Kirsten Ulve's Snail Mail Set.

Sorry, the color of the envelope is different in each of my scanned picture; the real colour is something between these three alternatives :)

The Waiting Has Been Rewarded!

This beautiful Christmas card with beautiful postages arrived today from my dear friend Jasmina in Argentina! Thank you so much Jasmina!
I also sent you a Christmas card before Christmas, but too close to Christmas, so I suppose you still have to wait for it!

Waiting for Post

Post matters are not delivered during Christmas time, so our mailbox has been empty for a while, and now it's already very much waiting for new deliveries... :)

Rabbit Post to Taiwan

Hsin-Yi likes rabbits, and I used an old rabbit postage in the envelope of her Christmas card, and drew a rabbit as a decoration.
Hsin-Yi told that she had got the card just on Christmas Eve!

Butterfly Stuff

I bought this beautiful tin box of butterfly stickers on Wednesday, and saw in the shop also a similar kind of a box of postcards. When I then at home opened the stickers box I felt the stickers were so beautiful, that I today had to go and buy also a box of cards!

Swap-bot Card

I made this card using the new papers I just bought. - I really love these papers!
This card is for the swap where several postage stamps had to be used to send the card, and postage stamps should be used also in decoration of the front side.
In front side I have a piece of nice paper with three used postage stamps glued on it and additionally decorated by using Artland and Queen rubber stamps.

Beautiful Block of Papers

I found this beautiful block of papers in Panduro hobby shop in Stockholm.
I always visit this shop when I am in Stockholm, and I have always looked there the scrapbooking materials also, but haven't found anything usable in that area earlier. This small (15 cm x 15 cm) block of different beautiful papers again was something I immediately wanted to buy to be used to decorate envelopes. I managed to find there also envelopes in same size, but didn't understand to buy more than a package of five. Now I happily found out that this Swedish hobby shop has also a Finnish Internet shop from where I easily can order more!
