What a nice day...

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingThe mail art that Su sent to me for our 'summer' mail art exchange has arrived today and its beautiful. It is stitched on linen banding which works really well for envelope size. Su has used linen threads for this which give it a lovely faded kind of look.

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingThe back is really nice with a little picture of my cat Marsha and a lady (me, well why not ;) in her garden. Su has done tiny 1/1 butterflies fluttering through the garden. Some of the 'flowers' are little wee buttons to match with the front of the envelope.

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingSpeaking of a nice day...I got another little surprise from my Mum today...the things in the picture below are from her. There are post it notes wishing me a nice day, 2 lovely pieces of cotton fabric, a Yankee 'Fresh Cut Roses' tart, small wooden beads, a really sweet little handbag on a wire to hang up and last but not least the tiniest, prettiest gold 'victorian' looking frame...now I will have to do a tiny picture to go in that. Thank-you so much Mum and Su...I am having a 'nice day' thanks to you both ;-)))
