Please tell me a little bit about what you did today, or
- is there a public library in your neighborhood and do you use it?
- what is your favorite book? (Or books) Or author(s)
- how is the weather where you live,
- or tell me anything else you would like to write.
Please date your card.
I love decorated cards, with or without an envelope is up to you, but if you make your own envelopes, please send me one, I think that is awesome!
I do love nice stamps, although i am not really a collector.
My 'favorites' are cards I do not yet have and would love to receive.
