Els in Zwolle, Netherlands likes birthday cards in October – and my card will arrive just around her birthday! I made a card for her and decorated it with glitter glue. I also included a postcard, and since she collects stamps, I included some new / used stamps and used some cool looking ones on the envelope.
Stamps I used on the envelope.
UPDATE October 4, 2012: Hurray! My card reached its destination in 9 days after traveling 6,406 km! “Thank you very much for the beautiful Birthday card and the many beautiful stamps. The Virginia card is great!!! I received an envelope full of Birthday presents. Thanks! It was a very nice surprise. I’ll send you some stamps from the Netherlands in return. Best wishes and many greetings from the Netherlands.” That’s such a great thank you! 🙂 And yay! she’s sending me stamps! 🙂 I wasn’t expecting anything in return, but I’m excited anyway. 🙂
